We excel at three kinds of projects: 1) individual or ongoing jobs where we do the flying and data collection, such as a public affairs campaign, an agricultural project, land use planning study, building inspection or construction project; 2) where your organization needs an in-house, ongoing UAV capability and we design your UAV system and train your personnel; and 3) UAV feasibility studies.
In all cases, we match the best technology, software and systems design available to the client’s needs and mission.
Advanced Technology Communications is designing, building and implementing a comprehensive Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) for the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority for the nation’s main ports at Tema and Takoradi. The project includes training GHPA personnel in all aspects of UAS management and UAV flight operations, including mission planning and data management. This technology and knowledge transfer will ensure sovereign control over the data and avoid a 21 st century technological colonialism that leaves too many countries behind. Upon completion, Ghana will have the most advanced civilian UAS and UAV operations of any nation in Africa for maritime security, shipping traffic control, anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Guinea, construction inspection and documentation, and public affairs and communications.
Karl Miller Center, Portland State University
Portland State wanted to kick off the grand opening of the Karl Miller Center for Business with a blogger event the day before the ribbon cutting. They requested a series of video clips, all under ten seconds and maximized for the Facebook platform and especially for mobile devices because the blogging event was produced live on Facebook. The footage needed to showcase specific aspects of the design and construction per the client. ATC delivered the clips on 48 hours notice, working through the weekend and doing on-site post production with the PSU staff as the event approached. This link is to the most popular one in the set and the others are next to it here; still images are here.
Lower Klamath River/Iron Gate Dam
Lower Klamath River/Iron Gate Dam
ATC was asked to provide drone video and photography of the Iron Gate Dam and Lower Klamath River near Yreka, California for a proposal team preparing for the $300 million decommissioning of four earthen dams on the Lower Klamath River in Oregon and California as a result of a salmon-related settlement. The client wanted slow, cinematic, documentary shots to be able to show current and potential proposal team members the Iron Gate reservoir, dam, Lower Klamath River below the dam, and segments downstream west of I-5, including footage of the riparian habitat and algae buildup in the stream beds. In this case, the client did not want an end-to-end produced video, but a series of shots from which they could choose to include in the proposal. Check out the video here and the photos here.
ATC shot promotional aerial video and photography to feature a surf lodge on the Pacific Coast of northern Panama. The shoot features dramatic beach, wave, island and other tropical scenes and images for upcoming marketing and social media.
