Trimble and Propeller Aero collaborate on unmanned aircraft for construction
Trimble has announced it is collaborating with Propeller Aero to distribute its Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) analytics platform.
Propeller, based in Sydney and Denver, is a leader in the advanced collection, visualization and analysis of data from UAS. Propeller’s simple automated ground control targets, cloud-based visualization and rapid analysis platform will also be integrated with Trimble® Connected Site® solutions to bring an end-to-end cloud-based UAS solution to civil engineering and construction contractors.
Pairing Propeller’s web-based interface with Trimble Connected Site solutions allow users to unlock the full value of UAS information. It gives users access to simple tools to measure surface geometry, track trends and changes across time and perform visual inspections. Both technical and non-technical professionals are now able to gather insights remotely and collaborate, driving significant improvements in safety, efficiency and reducing environmental impact across a construction worksite.
“Propeller combines ease of use with powerful analysis tools that allow users to view 2D and 3D deliverables and extract valuable information,” said Scott Crozier, director of marketing for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. “Like Trimble, Propeller understands the value of quality and accurate data for integration with civil engineering and construction workflows.”
“We pride ourselves in taking the most trusted, technical data and tools and wrapping that up in an easy-to-use online platform that is relevant to the entire organization, not just technical users. Working closely with Trimble demonstrates a shared commitment to achieving that vision,” said Rory San Miguel, CEO of Propeller Aero. “Integrating our platform into Trimble’s Connected Site solutions will bring a new class of information to construction sites and organizations globally.”
Propeller Aero is empowering organizations to reduce costs, improve safety and optimize workflow efficiency by providing access to uniquely accurate UAS data and analysis tools within an interactive cloud platform. The company’s products are used by businesses and technical professionals alike in the resources, utilities, construction, engineering and government sectors in more than 100 countries.
