New pre-flight system reveals best drone data capture options

By SOARIZON | February 26, 2020

SOARIZON, an integrated drone operations technology provider, has formed a strategic partnership with CG Labs, experts in the capture and processing of data.

Based in Milton Keynes, UK, CG Labs works across many different sectors including industrial, construction, agriculture and events specializing in visualization, modelling and measurement, where technology and data manipulation deliver a new standard in accuracy and efficiency.

The partnership will involve the two companies collaborating on strategic opportunities to provide data processing solutions, giving SOARIZON customers a quality end-to-end data acquisition and processing service.

The partnership will provide SOARIZON customers with pre-flight consultancy on the best methodologies for data acquisition, as well as first class post processing capability that far surpasses the current go-to systems that utilize cloud processing.  Services available to SOARIZON customers include: Thermal Condition Reporting, LiDAR manipulation, 2D orthomosaics, 3D models, Digital Elevation, Surface and Terrain Models.  All hosted on an accessible, user-friendly platform.

Streamlining the end-to-end process of gathering data by unmanned air systems in this way can save businesses time and cost, whilst maintaining full oversight of all drone operations and ensuring that all output is fully secure, therefore, minimizing exposure and risk in data quality control and assurance.

Michael Oliver, Head of SOARIZON said of the partnership: “We are delighted to be working with CG Labs to introduce new and exciting capabilities into our service ecosystem.  This partnership will bring valuable data processing services to our customers, helping them to further streamline their end-to-end drone operations.  Like SOARIZON, CG Labs has ambitious plans to innovate and continuously improve. This partnership will help us to unlock the true potential of data acquired by drones for business and organizations of all sizes.”

David Cummins, Executive Director of CG Labs said: “We jumped at the chance to partner with the SOARIZON team. We are excited to be able to share our global processing capabilities and innovation with SOARIZON customers.  Our tools will allow them to transform data into more useful insights that can add significant value to their own clients.  Furthermore, as a customer of SOARIZON ourselves, we have found that we are able to streamline our own drone mission workflow, increasing our efficiency, safety and accountability, meaning that we save time, effort and money.”

The two companies will now work together on offering joint services and testing the value of integrating this type of service into the core SOARIZON platform.
