SkySpecs

OverviewSuggest Edit

SkySpecs is a company that develops and produces autonomous aerial vehicles for commercial and industrial use to safely reach and inspect tall or otherwise hard-to-reach structures, such as bridges and tall wind turbines. It enables a drone to autonomously make observations and develop actionable insights on the job.
The Company's solutions include Autonomous Inspection and Data Portal. A fully automated drone inspection scans all four sides of all three blades from only meters from the surface, taking pictures, measuring the surface, and planning its own path all without any input from a human. The SkySpecs Data Portal serves as a single blade reporting solution for all the stakeholders in the wind industry. Asset Managers can see an overview of inspections of their entire fleet, while site managers can monitor their entire wind farm.
