Drone Services


At CATSI, we will always pursue a hands-on approach to inspecting your structural and mechanical assets because it is the best way to check bolts for tightness, to clean and evaluate connections for signs of rust packing or cracking, and to put a tape measure to cracks to convey repair needs to you and your team. Every facility has areas that, for one reason or another, simply are not accessible without cost intensive front-end prep work. By hiring CATSI and our drone fleet, you can have a close range, high definition video inspection performed that is both safe, and cost effective. Don’t cut it to make budget, put a CAT’s-Eye on it!
