Our Vision

Our hands-on inspection experience in the electric utility industry brings a unique perspective and insight into the challenges of asset condition monitoring. This provides us with a keen awareness of the dangers and prohibitive costs associated with elevated infrastructure inspection.

Our goal is to provide solutions that drastically reduce costs of Unmanned Aerial System inspections as well as the safety risks associated with conventional inspection methods. The end result is our innovative software platform that can reduce the need for the time-consuming, costly and risky inspections of the past using pre-set drone flight plans for automated data collection.
