IRIS Group is a privately owned company offering the expert provision of managed solutions using cutting edge technology, with a primary focus on unmanned air systems (UAS). The Group is a collective alliance of comprehensive UAS industry knowledge, technical and operating expertise enhanced by data analysis specialists, and backed by an international group of engineering businesses servicing multinational companies around the world.
Operating on a Global stage from Western Europe to Indonesia, IRIS Group Aero undertakes the following operations -
Site/Event Security
Search And Rescue
Counter UAS
Border Protection
IRIS Group utilise technology to augment the traditional security methods of manned aircraft and/or ground based security. With the latest equipment for both Drone/UAS operations and Counter Drone/UAS operations, and with years of both military and security experience, IRIS Group Aero offers a cost effective capability that far exceeds the current methods.

Oil and Gas
Energy Distribution
Renewable Energy
Road and Bridges
Within Oil and Gas IRIS Group Aero pilots and drones bring a new dimension to the traditional manned rope and scaffolding based inspections, to enable a quicker, safer and more cost effective inspection capability.
High-end sensor technology enables an asset based inspection capability within the Energy distribution and renewables sector. Traditional electro optic sensors are combined with technology such as LIDAR, Thermal and Multi-Spectral to enable intelligent maintenance decisions to be made in a timely manner.
Utilising Drone technology makes bridge and road inspections quicker, easier and more cost effective. Highly accurate sub centimetre measuring capabilities with extremely high quality images and the ability to construct the asset into a model for easy inspection reports.
Construction Site
Road Builds/Planning
A Sub centimetre, absolute and relative inspection capability that can be modelled and viewed by the client - enabling a multitude of deliverable outputs to be provided depending on client requirements.
The deliverable outputs post process allow the quantity surveyor, planner, designer and more further their investigations. Whether this is analysis of spatial data within an ‘as built’ environment or a requirement to import point cloud data and associated file outputs into an Autodesk environment, we set no limitation.
Utilising radiometric IR sensors, thermographic data can be gathered which allows for analysis of heat loss, water ingress and other building defects. From this data, analysis can generate cost models identifying the cost of these defects.
Construction sites, roads builds and planning can utilise Drones to enable progress reports, stockpile monitoring, easy and quick large scale area mapping and Orthomosaic images. We offer repeatability and achieve ground sampling well under general requirement. This is with reference to the accuracy bands set out by RICS, the band dictated by client requirement. Being able to offer specific results allows us to be able to highlight the level of time that can be saved over traditional surveying methods. This ultimately gives the client a fast turnaround and at a significant reduction in cost.

The Robotics industry and associated technology is developing and growing rapidly but there remains a relatively limited related skills and experience base across both the military and commercial sectors supporting the industry. However, with its unique and unrivalled mix of operational, technical and commercial experience, the IRIS team of Consultants are an internationally respected group of experts who have held senior military and commercial leadership/ management positions and have deep strategic and operational insight in designing, planning and executing multi-faceted solutions to complex client challenges. The scope of their experience in the robotics sector, particularly drones, crosses a wide range of disciplines from design and manufacturing, testing, procurement and delivery, to operating, support and data analysis.
The IRIS Aero Group Consultants, who work on a non-exclusive basis with a range of reputable global equipment manufacturers and service providers, with a primary focus on the development and execution of value-added services to clients are extremely well equipped to meet customer requirements.
Computer Animation (2D, 3D & VFX)
We have a team of experienced digital artists who can convey key facts using 2D motion graphics for explainer videos or create dynamic and lifelike 3D animations for visualization.
Motion Capture
Mocap for short, is the process of recording subtle expressions or extreme movements of the face, body and fingers. This animation data is mapped to a 3D model so that the model performs the same actions as the actor.
Working closely with our drone division we have perfected the ability of capture life as it exists by using laser scanning and photogrammetry techniques to generate a 3D computer models of existing structures, people and environments.
Our virtual reality service offers a very immersive experience with the ability to interact with objects in the environment or feel the sensation of vertigo by standing at the top of a building. By incorporating VR and the Hololens, we are able to build 3D virtual environments and create immersive simulations with numerous business uses, such as:
• Training
• Demonstrations
• Work and jobsite planning
• Process design
• Concept reviews
• Product reviews
These processes are rendered far cheaper than traditional use cases and allow the users to fully experience and visualise concepts and products like never before.
App Development
We create customized software solutions whether it be for the automation of remedial tasks. By developing mobile and desktop software applications we can offer a more streamlined approach to dealing with complex issues and incorporating A. I. and Machine Learning means we can do it in half the time while removing human error. By automating tasks and solving real workplace problems, teams are more effective, efficient, and can focus their energy on the tasks that matter most.
