A recent interview by This is Alfred, a local news station on Anthony Walker

A former soldier has applied his army training to help the environment and diagnose medical issues in animals. Alfred’s Keri Jones visited Anthony Walker of Thermosurvey at Shaftesbury’s Wincombe Business Park to see how drones aid his diagnosis.
Anthony Walker is a thermographer. His working day is spent looking at images created using a thermal camera. “You will have seen how police go around using thermal cameras to catch perpetrators. That’s the sort of thing that I do, but I […]

Heat loss in School Buildings

Heat Loss in Private and State School Buildings

As you know, schools are one of the biggest users of energy in the UK. Helping them to identify where they are losing heat can make the difference between a balanced budget and one which could be diving into the red. A typical school has tens of buildings and unless they are extremely fortunate, none of them will have been built within the last 20 years. This means that the building regulation requirements when they were built didn’t really […]

ThermoSurvey are delighted to have won an award at the prestigious International Conference on Renewable Energy (ICREN) 2019 at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

Working with a team at the University of Southampton researching photovoltaics, we collaborated to create our paper:
“Automatic fault detection in infrared thermographic images in photovoltaic arrays using deep convolutional neural networks.”
The Conference is an international forum that attracts the best articles and experts from all over the world in order to promote excellence.
The work is driven by Alois Klink who is a PhD student at the university. This project uses the learning ability of Artificial Intelligence to automatically identify […]

Why use a drone for thermal imaging?

 
Thermal imaging is an extremely useful tool in many sectors, particularly when identifying issues on roofs and hard to access places. However, surveys at height have traditionally proven problematic due to expense and physical inaccessibility. Surveys at height help identify heat loss in buildings, damp and structural issues. What has been an expensive and often impossible task has been made easier by the use of drones to conduct surveys at height.
Currently drones seem to be the bees knees in […]
