Kespry Inc., which designs automated drone systems for commercial use, announced that it has been selected by Woolpert to provide commercial drone systems to support the company’s site surveying and mapping needs.
Kespry serves the construction, construction aggregates, mining, surveying and mapping industries. Kespry Drone Systems provide a way for companies to safely collect aerial images, maps, 2D and 3D models, and other valuable data. Kespry helps customers better track site progress, measure stockpiles, manage resources, reduce downtime and track project status.
Woolpert is a national architecture, engineering and geospatial firm. Woolpert works with business partners like Google; operates a fleet of planes, sensors and unmanned aerial systems; and works with advanced water technologies, asset management, building information modeling and sustainable design.
“Commercial customers have enthusiastically embraced the Kespry Drone System because they realize how much time and money they can save while getting dramatically more accurate site assessments – safely and reliably,” said Paul Doersch, CEO and founder, Kespry.
“The Kespry Cloud, fueled by efficient, repeatable Kespry UAV flights, allows us to quickly collect site information, process it and deliver results to our customers,” said Mark Power, survey team leader at Woolpert.
Surveying and mapping customers launch the Kespry Drone on their job site as frequently as needed. The Kespry Drone maps 60-90 acres in one flight and automatically creates multiple flights to map sites up to 600 acres. It features automatic take-off, auto flight path, and auto landing – no joystick required – with full safety controls. Aerial site photos are captured on the drone and automatically uploaded to the iPad tablet application and secure cloud storage for access by project teams.
