This led us down a path to build something that isn’t just better, but more importantly – something that is different than anything the industry has seen. Rather than develop software that is incrementally better, we set out to reinvent the sensor itself. And building on inimitable insider knowledge of the tower industry (gained by having founded and built one of the world’s largest and most successful tower companies), as well as decades of photogrammetry experience, we created the industry’s first and only aerial sensor capable of capturing 3D engineering-grade tower data.
For the first time, there is a unified drone platform that allows enterprises to capture and execute around engineering-grade tower digital twins. Not only does this automate the most basic of visual inspections – precision digital twins automate executional capacity at an engineering level, feeding insights upstream and across new business units. This enables tower companies to understand leasable inventory, continuously assess tower capacity in real-time, and effortlessly operate across teams, vendors and geography.
As the industry explores the potential of drones to help address and economics of rolling out 5G infrastructure at scale, millimeters are the difference between augmenting inspections and insight automation. Millimeters are the difference between photo-realistic 3d models and as-built digital twins. And millimeters are the difference between truck rolls and digital transformation.
For the tower industry – millimeters matter.
