Drones are changing the way planners & engineers see the world.
Kestral Data brings it all into focus
Kestrel Data is a professional and federally licensed service provider for drone and aircraft based survey collection. We work primarily with traffic and infrastructure applications but our services are applicable to any enterprise seeking data distilled from aerial image and video collection. All of our work is conducted under Federal guidelines (Section 107) and fully insured.
For most applications, we use standard commercial level drones from DJI which have a maximum sustained flight time of 20 to 30 minutes.
For applications requiring persistent or longer duration aerial image collection, we use tethered drones. Tethered drones are powered from the ground with a cord or "tether" that allows the drone to stay aloft for hours. Very few drone service providers offer this service.
For larger areas, we use fixed wing manned aircraft such as the Cessna 172 optimized for aerial photography.
