Competition is growing, but we're different...in a really good way. Here's how:
Proprietary Software & Analytics
The magic happens after the operation. Our proprietary software makes this magic a reality. Achieve deeper insights through mapping/surveying, asset inspections such as power lines and wind turbines, as well as simultaneous data collection and reporting in a number of scenarios.
Leveraging predictive analytics, AI, computer vision and machine learning algorithms, we give you deeper, more valuable insights and ensure your collected data isn’t silo’d data. Proprietary, in-house software complementing drone operations enables our customers to identify irregularities and acquire more critical intuitive data of their assets, before problems occur.
Solutions is the most important part of our name. It's what LDS is all about. If we're not completely solving your pain, we're not doing our job. Fortune 500 companies choose us because we put the pieces of their puzzle together, in its entirety.
LDS is much more than people who know how to fly drones. We leverage seasoned experts and technology across a multitude of industries, on every project. Our drone operations, post-processing analytics and deliverable generation means that your collected data is not delivered as terabytes of silo’d information, tediously sifted through by operations or engineering teams.

Equipment & Technology
It's not only the drone that creates value. It's accessing cutting edge equipment for drones that you won't find elsewhere, such as airborne RTK modules, RF sensors, methane sensors, multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing and LiDAR.
Our drones are only vehicles for leveraging deeper data collection methods than traditional, more basic ones. Having strategic synergies with companies such as Emlid, our clients see beyond pictures and video to truly discover how our technology delivers more detailed, accurate, actionable data. All the while being more cost-effective, quicker, safer. Speaking of safety, our drones are also equipped with proprietary safety mechanisms which open up our abilities to fly virtually anywhere.
Since day 1 we’ve been certified and insured to operate across Canada and internationally with Advanced Operator Certification by Transport Canada (TC) and Part 107 Certification by the FAA. Previous to this we’ve held Ontario-specific and nationwide standing SFOCs. Our team has experience with operations in complex airspace classes including CYR 518 (Niagara Falls Canada/US Border) airspace, operations in dense urban areas and near Parliament Hill.
Our pilots undergo rigorous internal training as well as Waterloo Wellington Flight Centre’s (WWFC) Transport Canada licensed RPAS Ground School. WWFC is one of Canada’s largest leading drone training centres. Members of our team also serve as TC accredited Flight Reviewers in association with WWFC. They are responsible for evaluating prospective drone operators flying under the advanced regulations. Further to this, our company partners (Joel and Jonathan) are on the Transport Canada Mirror Committee which aims to help standardize drone regulations across North America.
Services & Scalability Tailored To you
LDS leverages internal and external professionals across a multitude of industries including computer sciences, EPCM, all levels of government, geospatial sciences, unmanned systems operations and manned aviation. We ensure that our team fully understands your operational needs before project implementation timelines are even discussed. RPAS program and project consultancy offerings as well as operational training services validates our ability to support individual client projects or the integration of their own enterprise-level aerial intelligence programs.
