Competition is growing, but we're 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.

End-to-end solutions

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 quicker, safer and more cost-effective.

Regulatory Management


We are certified and insured to operate across Canada and internationally, with Advanced Operator Certification by Transport Canada and Part 107 Certification by the FAA. 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 including our own Instructional Program, as well as Waterloo Wellington Flight Centre’s (WWFC) Transport Canada licensed RPAS Ground School.

Members of our team also serve as Flight Reviewers in association with WWFC, under Transport Canada’s new regulatory framework effective June 1st, 2019. They will be responsible for the evaluation of prospective drone operators flying under the advanced regulations.

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.
