Delair Launches Aerial Intelligence Platform

27 February 2019

Delair, a leading supplier of commercial drone solutions, has unveiled Delair Aerial Intelligence, a comprehensive platform for converting drone-based images into actionable business insights. The new cloud-based solution provides a complete integrated workflow to manage, analyse and share data, streamlining the process for unlocking the true potential of aerial surveying. Industry-optimised analytics for a wide range of specific industries and use cases will enable more accuracy and precision to deliver bottom-line benefits to businesses.

For forestry & agriculture, this includes:

  • Map and scout to visually analyse the fields
  • Run field inventory to characterise the crops and monitor them
  • Drive precision ag practices

The platform aims to reinforce Delair’s position as the pre-eminent supplier of enterprise-class software solutions for the UAV industry. Built on a foundation of six years of internal software development efforts and following its acquisition of Airware’s software platform and development team in 2018, Delair now has one of the largest teams of software developers focused on drone data management. The company offers a highly scalable platform and one of the broadest portfolios of analytics to enable enterprises to implement a digital transformation of their assets in order to harness the power of data collected by drones of any type.

It has become clear that data and software are the real end game in effective commercial drone use by enterprises. These businesses demand not just innovative technology but enterprise-ready solutions that offer the scalability, reliability, and security they need, as well as the ability to integrate with other key business processes. With Delair Aerial Intelligence we can offer the combined power of an enterprise-focused workflow and proven industry-specific analytics to help turn aerial data into actionable business insight,” said Michael de Lagarde, CEO at Delair.

Early on, we recognized the need to acquire greater amounts of accurate, repeatable data from the air that could be easily accessed and analyzed for improved operational efficiency,” said John Blackmore, mapping and survey supervisor at Luck Stone, the largest family owned and operated producer of crushed stone, sand and gravel in the US.  “We are excited about the additional benefits of the Delair Aerial Intelligence platform, which allow our associates to access the information faster than ever before and analyze the data to make better decisions for the company. Luck Stone has prioritized and valued innovation since our inception in 1923 and we are inspired by the opportunities that Delair’s UAV technology advancements will afford to all aspects of our company’s operations.
