Drone and satellite imagery combined

In ForestTECH, Issue13 by FIEA

Airbus Aerial and DroneBase have announced a partnership that will be interesting reading for any organization that relies on aerial imagery to make better decisions. The two plan to deliver the world’s first “multi-source data service solution for aerial imagery and data from a single provider”. In English, that means the companies will seek to offer a combined service that provides customers with aerial data from Airbus Aerial’s satellites and manned aircraft and DroneBase’s network of drone pilots.

“We are very excited to announce this historic partnership that leverages Airbus Aerial’s significant investment in the automation of satellite, manned aviation, and drone data capture and analysis with the DroneBase API and their global pilot network,” said Jesse Kallman, President of Airbus Aerial.

Airbus Aerial was launched in 2017 to harness the latest software and aerospace technology in an effort to give companies actionable data and analysis using drones, satellites, high altitude aircraft and other sources. “Companies new to this sort of data now have a trusted partner to help them understand which types of data and analysis make the most sense for them and can help them solve their toughest challenges,” said Kallman.

By joining forces with DroneBase, a drone operations platform with tens of thousands of professional pilots that can gather aerial data of any US address within a matter of days, Airbus Aerial is well placed to offer customers a unique set of services. Having one global go-to source for aerial data from drones, manned aircraft, and satellites is more than just a time-saver. It also allows for a more dynamic and collaborative approach to data gathering.
