Kestrel is pleased to announce our partnership with Measure UAS, Inc. (Measure) to provide drone program management and advisory services to companies with commercial drone operations. The expanded services created through this relationship will offer a more comprehensive array of solutions to companies who currently are or may be interested in using drones to enhance their core business operations.
Meeting Growing Needs
Drone (UAS) technology is evolving rapidly, but the industry is in its early stages. That creates many questions regarding regulations, equipment, applicability, and how drones can best help meet an organization’s specific goals. Companies are faced with the challenge of scaling a safe, compliant, and effective drone program. Lack of planning will (at best) add up to a short-lived drone program or (at worst) cause the organization undue risk or injury.
“Kestrel and Measure are working together to help companies better select and implement enterprise technology to reduce operational risk and to meet both industry and aviation-specific mandates,” explains Kestrel Principal Jack Anderson “We help effectively integrate UAS programs into core business processes and systems to bring the most value to the organization.”
This strategic alliance will allow organizations with existing or planned drone programs to leverage the collective resources and expertise of the Measure and Kestrel teams, and to access a more comprehensive set of solutions to help ensure the drone program’s success. Together, Kestrel and Measure offer the following products and services:
- Operational Risk Management and Safety Management Systems
- Process Improvement and Compliance Assurance
- Turnkey Aerial Inspections
- UAS Training (Basic, Platform-Specific and Application-Specific)
- Drone Program Management Software
- Drone Data Analysis
“Kestrel’s approach to drone program management and overall operational risk management complements Measure’s portfolio of drone-related services and software,” explains Jesse Stepler, Chief Strategy Officer of Measure. “Together, we have the ability to bring enterprise drone programs to scale in a way that will help organizations reduce risk, improve worker safety, and remain compliant.”
