MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 26, 2016– Kespry Inc., which designs automated drone systems for commercial use, today 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 an excellent way for these 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.
“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.
How Kespry Drone Systems Work
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.
Based in Menlo Park, CA, Kespry is an automated commercial drone solution that operates right-out-of-the-case and enables its commercial customers to collect, analyze and share essential aerial information. To achieve high standards of safety, productivity, and reliability, Kespry controls the design of each critical component. This attention to integrated design and reliability provides superior efficiencies and accelerates the delivery of advanced functionality.
Founded in 2013, Kespry received initial backing from Chmod Ventures and Series A funding from Lightspeed Venture Partners. www.kespry.com
