A Hampshire-based thermal imaging company has bolstered its team with the appointment of a new technical co-ordinator.
iRed has appointed Ben Coleman to the position as part of the company’s mission to expand its presence in the thermal imagining industry in the UK.
Coleman, who is based at the company’s headquarters in Emsworth, said: “I have had an interest in drones since they were introduced.
“I have been building drones for some time and now I can do it on a professional scale for a leading company. We create bespoke systems which might or not include thermal imaging cameras.
“There are endless applications for drones and we can assist businesses looking to utilise their potential in any area.
“The company also offers comprehensive training so I’m part of a team that delivers a whole package to the client.”
Ray Faulkner, managing director of iRed, added: “Drone technology is a real growth area and Ben’s expertise will help us react to that.
“There are numerous elements to the business and Ben will be able to co-ordinate them to give an even better service and product to our clients.
“He will also be there for post-sale advice and support which many clients say is a real help.”
Earlier this month, iRed launched search and rescue packages after a decade of research into aerial thermography and has supplied six police forces already.
The kit enables immediate searches to be made and for large areas to be swept from above for heat signatures.
