Experience Based Thinking

It was innovative and experience based thinking at parent company Richard Allitt Associates Limited that sparked the development of Remote Aerial Surveys. Originally devised as a method of inspecting difficult-to-reach river channels, the service has developed and now offers an impressive range of surveys including precise high quality topographic, multispectral and thermal surveys which benefit from the added value provided by RAA's skills and experience.
