AirMap, a global airspace intelligence platform for drones, has acquired Hangar Technology, a drone workflow automation platform for enterprises.
The acquisition continues AirMap’s strategy of extending open, connected and automated airspace management solutions to the drone industry and expands Hangar’s reach to new international markets and industry applications, the companies say.
Hangar Technology, which automates drone workflows for enterprises, was originally founded by Colin Guinn, former chief revenue officer of 3D Robotics and CEO of DJI North America, and Jeffrey DeCoux, founder and CEO of eCustomers and SMART technologies.
Its products include JobSight, a construction-focused application that automates orthomosaics, panoramas and other imaging, and TowerSight, a digital workflow application for automated tower inspections. Hangar software precision-scans every inch of an asset; the platform then automatically analyzes drone data to create a digital reconstruction and produce detailed component analysis.
AirMap will extend Hangar’s workflow automation, high-precision flight planning and image processing capabilities to its international ecosystem of developers and enterprises, which can expect enhancements to AirMap’s platform of APIs and SDKs in the coming months.
“Hangar first joined the AirMap community as a developer of breakthrough automation technologies for enterprises,” comments Ben Marcus, AirMap’s chairman and co-founder. “We’re excited to bring this engineering talent in-house to make this technology available to our entire developer community.”
“We’ve worked closely with major players across construction and cell towers to streamline and automate every part of their UAS inspection workflow,” adds Scott Lumish, CEO of Hangar. “We’re eager to combine forces with AirMap to enhance these offerings with AirMap’s airspace management capabilities for enterprises worldwide.”
Hangar Technology, now a subsidiary of AirMap, will retain its headquarters and team in Austin, Texas.
