by DRONELIFE author Ian M. Crosby
Optelos and FlyGuys have announced a partnership that will bring together FlyGuy’s nationwide drone data collection network and Optelos’ visual data management, 2D/3D modeling and inspection analysis capabilities to build a turnkey data collection and analysis solution for customers across multiple industries. As part of the partnership, FlyGuys will use the Optelos platform to securely deliver drone-collected data, 2D maps and 3D models, custom reports and actionable insights to customers. In addition, Optelos will leverage FlyGuy’s extensive network of experienced pilots to provide data collection services to its customers in the telecom, energy, power supply and industrial manufacturing sectors.
FlyGuys collects an extensive range of data through multiple sensors such as RGB, Infrared, LiDAR and Multispectral. Its geospatial experts and extensive network of drone pilots enable FlyGuys to deploy when and where the need arises to provide the required data collection resources. Optelos will leverage this network and data collection experience to offer its customers turnkey data collection and inspection analysis capabilities wherever they are needed.
“Working with FlyGuys has allowed us to expand our reach of turnkey data collection and asset analysis services for our customers,” said Optelo’s CRO Ed Sztuka. “Regardless of the data collection method required, FlyGuys can deliver.”
Upon completion of a flight mission, the data collected can be seamlessly uploaded to the Optelos platform, where it is organized to meet specific customer requirements. The Optelos platform is able to create 2D maps, 3D models and digital twins and visualize all data types, including thermal and LiDAR, as well as geolocate all data sources. These data sources can then be analyzed with reports and made available to the customer immediately and securely via the Optelos portal.
“We have found the Optelos platform to be a great benefit for FlyGuys. The ability to elegantly organize all collected data and deliver it securely to our customers has been a real breakthrough and we look forward to offering additional Optelos features to our customers as well,” said Adam Zayor, CEO of FlyGuys. “Optelos has one of the best operations teams in the industry; They continue to demonstrate their professionalism and work ethic on a regular basis. Her attention to detail and her planning, scheduling and training skills are second to none.”
The partnership, which Optelos and FlyGuys will continue to build on, will result in both companies expanding their service offerings.
