Working with APEM to offer Aerial High Resolution Imaging
Two highly experienced and well-known scientific firms—Normandeau Associates, Inc. and APEM Ltd—have teamed up across the Atlantic Ocean to offer aerial high resolution imaging as one component of an integrated strategy for successful permitting of offshore wind energy projects. The Normandeau–APEM team combines extensive knowledge of innovative technology and methods with scientific integrity and regulatory experience. Together we are providing a new standard for offshore wildlife data gathering in North America based on European methodology
Our approach is to work with you to design a cost-effective solution based on the unique needs of your project. The process begins with clearly defined scientific-study designs created by the Normandeau–APEM team. We offer flexible equipment and aircraft options to meet project-specific requirements such as size of survey area, survey frequency, weather, and species of particular interest. We also provide you with expert scientific identification of processed images. APEM's image analysis system is the first in the world to gain ISO17025 accreditation from UKAS. Normandeau created ReMOTe for large data storage, efficient data processing and analysis, and visualization.
Solid, Reliable Results to Inform Your Decisions
Because of its superior data quality, lower cost, and increased safety, aerial high resolution imaging has replaced vessel-based observation as the predominant wildlife survey tool for offshore wind ecological studies in Europe.
Normandeau—through a pilot study for the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management—has developed new tools and protocols for adapting this methodology to North America. Combined with APEM’s leadership in aerial high resolution wildlife imaging surveys in the UK and Europe, our team produces an unrivaled capacity to provide bird, marine mammal, and sea turtle studies for coastal and offshore projects in North America. The Normandeau-APEM team is executing the largest ever offshore surveys for BOEM and NYSERDA.
The advantages of aerial high resolution imaging include:

The Normandeau–APEM team can undertake specific parts of an environmental project or handle the entire work package from beginning to end. Your project will have access to top scientific specialists, making the Normandeau APEM team the obvious choice for a host of existing and new scientific studies.
Normandeau is one of the few science-based environmental consulting firms that provide comprehensive professional services combined with the latest technology and industry equipment to benefit your project. Our offshore wind services include:
