Drone thermography is one of the latest innovations in the use of these tools which allow thermographic recordings to be taken from practically unique and otherwise unattainable angles. Monitoring photovoltaic systems is a prerogative of those who manage them.
Airondrone is an innovative start-up specialized in the remote sensing of photovoltaic systems and in the creation of the digital copy (digital twin) and related IT management.
Airondrone builds value for the Customer, transforming the data collected into information necessary to anticipate managerial choices.

  • 10 years of experience with remotely piloted aircraft, over 700 industrial inspections

  • Enac certified pilots and instrumentation

  • 750 plants monitored in Italy 3500,900 kW of power

  • 650,000 RGB images detected

  • 500,000 thermal images processed





Survey of images in the field using a drone and thermal/visible sensors.

Photogrammetric coverage of the entire power plant using RGB and IR sensors with simultaneous flights to optimize acquisition times 1 MW in 4 hours.


Analysis and processing

Image analysis and processing with generation of thermal orthophoto and visible orthophoto of the detected system.

  • Visible: visual analysis allows you to ascertain the possible presence of anomalies attributable to mechanical breakages, dirt, shadows, etc.;

  • Radiometric: the temperature analysis occurs automatically using zonal statistics plugins on the radiometric raster with different levels of detail.

Identification of thermal anomalies

Through an algorithm we are able to classify each panel based on the different temperature deltas.

Based on the associated color we obtain the classification grid of the health status of the panels.


IT management

  • Thermographic report: once the classification has been obtained and analyzed panel by panel, we generate the final classification report, both in paper and digital format within the dedicated Gis portal.

  • Database reports: We use Gis as a data and information collector.
    We are going to generate a geo portal with all the monitored systems, creating a true digital database that can be constantly consulted, modified and updated.
