Bluesky, an aerial mapping company, has announced that it is partnering with airborne inspection and surveying firm Cyberhawk to provide a broader range of aerial survey and mapping services through the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
The collaboration will allow Bluesky’s customers to take advantage of the rapid data collection and shorter mobilisation, acquisition and processing times associated with Cyberhawk’s UAV technology and powerful iHawk cloud software. In turn, the partnership will provide Cyberhawk clients access to the latest aerial survey sensors and equipment; including an integrated sensor for the capture of aerial photography, LiDAR and thermal data – essential for large scale data capture projects that require manned aircraft.
Cyberhawk is highly experienced in using UAVs to undertake inspections of industrial facilities in the oil and gas, renewables, rail and power and utility sectors, and a pioneer in converting this data into powerful asset management information in the cloud. Cyberhawk also undertakes land survey activities for engineering, utility and public sector organisations.
Aerial mapping company Bluesky is a specialist in the capture and production of large scale – often nationwide – datasets, including aerial photography and height models as well as derived products, including a world first National Tree Map.
Rachel Tidmarsh, Managing Director of Bluesky International, commented, “We are often asked if we can capture a specific location or industrial installation, either at short notice or on a specific date and time. By partnering with Cyberhawk, we can be confident that our customers will receive the high standards of customer service and product quality they have come to expect.”
“Like Bluesky, Cyberhawk has achieved major global success by delivering high quality results and excellent customer service,” added Phil Buchan, Commercial Director at Cyberhawk Innovations. “By working with Bluesky, we have partnered with a company that shares our values and our ethos, which are centred on innovation and service excellence.
“The partnership with Bluesky will allow us to complement our existing UAV offering with nationwide coverage of aerial photography and 3D height data, as well as more specialist capture and production including thermal surveys, LiDAR and even air quality monitoring and night time surveys.”
