An “aerial intelligence platform” that fully integrates the drone hardware and image rendering software provides ready-to-use imagery with almost no operator intervention required.

The new quad-rotor Kespry Drone 2.0 boasts several key improvements based on feedback the company received from its customers.

The new lighter-weight drone flies twice as long, covers twice the ground area, and has twice the wind resilience, due to the new airframe, battery, and flight system improvements. The new drone now flies over 30 minutes per flight, covering up to 150 acres at a 400 foot altitude. It weighs under 2 kg, which puts it in the “Micro UAV” category for streamlined regulatory compliance around the world.

The fully-automated drone system, takes off, flies the designated flight path, and lands, all without operator intervention or even a joystick.

For operation in congested areas, including applications like roof inspections for insurance claims, the new Kespry Drone 2.0 is the first automated drone system that includes an on-board LiDAR sensor that automatically detects and avoids obstacles like trees, cranes, and buildings.

UAS Vision reports that the new Kespry Drone 2.0 also has a lighter-weight and customized Sony industrial UMC-R10C camera that captures more geospatial data for detailed 3D models that assist companies in areas like mine planning, operations, inspection and safety.
