Kespry improved its Kespry Drone 2 with new features designed to deliver greater accuracy and reliability for its users.

According to Kespry, the new Drone 2 now achieves four to six times the accuracy of its predecessor.

The added features allow the drone to be even more ideal for a range of applications, including those requiring survey-grade precision, such as in mining and the architecture, engineering and construction markets, Kespry adds.

The new Kespry Drone 2 boasts a high-performance ground receiver, and the Global Navigation Satellite System base station receiver serves as a single survey control point. This simplifies survey applications and eliminates the need for additional manual measurements in the survey process, Kespry says. During flight, imagery from the Drone 2 and data from the base station are collected simultaneously, and both sets of data are automatically uploaded for processing in the Kespry Cloud, where survey-grade data is automatically generated.

In addition, post-processed kinematic technology is used to increase the accuracy of photogrammetric aerial images. According to Kespry, integrating post-processed kinematic technology improves the speed, efficiency and reliability of gathering survey-ready data in commercial and industrial environments.

“Customers are looking for a complete drone solution that provides survey grade accuracy, without sacrificing speed and convenience,” says George Mathew, CEO and chairman of Kespry. “The enhancements to the Kespry Drone 2 – bringing centimeter-level accuracy – exemplify how Kespry is innovating the industrial drone space through its Aerial Intelligence Platform.”

Kespry, headquartered in Menlo Park, California, is an aerial intelligence platform provider that develops drone hardware, software and cloud services.
