AERIAL FILMING & DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY

Our aerial filming services extend beyond Singapore to neighboring countries like Malaysia, Nepal, India, Vietnam, Indonesia & Sri Lanka. The challenges of aerial filming in different environments push us to innovate new and unique aerial platforms beyond drones. We designed & built the Skypole, the only telescopic camera in Singapore, which can be used for aerial & time-lapse filming. The Crane Cam, Posmo and tethered drone are several solutions we have to overcome drone no-fly zones.

BROADCAST EXPERIENCE

Our award-winning team has more than 20 years of experience filming factual and fictional programs for local & international broadcasters. Our recent aerial filming support for TV programs include Frontier Borneo for Discovery Channel Asia, which takes us into the deep jungles of Borneo. Another documentary, Wild City for Channel News Asia explores the wild side of Singapore

Filming in Restricted Airspace

Singapore has very strict drone "No-Fly" zones around Seletar and Changi Airport. This area of restriction covers most of the eastern and northern parts of Singapore. Skyshot, along with our aerospace engineering partner, Flare Dynamics, developed the LIFELINE tethered drone system that allows us to operate in these drone "No-Fly" zones. The LIFELINE tethered drone has a micro-tether line attached to the drone. It is powered only by the ground battery system, with no onboard batteries in the drone allowed. So there is no chance for the drone to malfunction and "fly away" remotely. The drone flight height is limited by the tether length of 60 meters, well suited for low high-air traffic areas. It is certified by the CAAS for use in Singapore.

Drone Inspection

UAVs are a safe & cost-effective way to conduct aerial inspections for buildings, oil-rigs, and engineering structures. Our drone camera can be equipped with a power zoom lens to get high quality 18-megapixel aerial photos & 4K videos of your project. A structural inspection is traditionally a labor-intensive and high-risk assignment, this job can now be done by a drone with minimal risk.

Helicopter Filming

While drones are limited to a maximum operating height of 60 meters by CAAS, helicopters can fly much higher and longer than drones. Thus the area of coverage is significantly larger than drones. Skyshot regularly conducts heliborne aerial photography for large-scale projects like the reclamation project in Pulau Tekong. We have also done helicopter aerial shoots in regional countries like Indonesia and Malaysia.

Crane - Remote Cam 

Secured to an industrial crane, the Crane Cam is a remote control DSLR camera system for high-resolution aerial photography. The key advantage of Crane Cam is the ability to shoot in drone no-fly zones. One example is the LTA road construction project near Paya Lebar Airport where drone flights are prohibited. With the Crane Cam, we are able to conduct monthly aerial filming for this project.

Drone mapping & Photogrammetry

We do our drone mapping with Pix4D, the industry standard for photogrammetry software. Drone mapping is used in the construction and engineering industry to create 3D maps, volumetric calculations, and other image analysis. Skyshot has completed 3D mapping projects like earthworks, infrastructures and other data-driven studies. 

Tethered Drone

Conventional drones have 2 major weaknesses. They have a limited flight time and they are not allowed in restricted airspaces like airports. Powered from the ground up by a portable battery pack, our tethered drone has a persistent power supply for extended flight time. It is well suited for aerial building inspections, security operations, and other assignments where continuous operation is crucial.
