Frequently Asked Questions

Our standard operating procedures are focused on safe operation of any of our UAV craft. Pilots undergo rigorous training and certification to operate. Our craft are all fitted with emergency systems such as parachutes and autopilot return to home functionality for any loss of signal between the UAV and the pilot. In the event of an incident our public liability insurances are also endorsed for operating UAVs for all our operations.
We operate a range of normal RGB resolution cameras, as well as a thermal sensor and multispectral NIR.

If we didn't answer all of your questions, feel free to drop us a line anytime.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“The service Interpine provided us goes above and beyond what we asked of them. Our work has some unique requirements and their response to challenges encountered during the course of our work has been outstanding” Nigel Searles

Planted Forest Senior Advisor, LUCAS Project, Ministry for the Environment

“Bruce and his team are excellent to deal with and have been able to deliver quality inventory data for Rayonier – this has been with tight ( and sometimes unreasonable) deadline pressure” Hamish Fitzgerald

Resource Forester, Matariki Forests / Rayonier NZ

“We could not have done the project without the expertise of your consulting team backing up your inventory work, We don’t have that type of resource available and it is great to be able to call upon your team” David Paul
