Measure Debuts All-in-One Solution for Enterprise Drone Programs

Measure, a nationwide provider of enterprise drone services, has released its proprietary Ground Control software platform, an all-in-one solution for enterprise unmanned aircraft system (UAS) programs.

According to the company, Ground Control integrates a user-friendly flight application with a cloud-based program management portal. It is designed to provide the streamlined operations and program oversight that enterprises need to scale their drone programs and realize the transformative benefits of aerial intelligence, says Measure.

“Despite the hype surrounding drones, enterprises are struggling to reach operational scale,” comments Jesse Stepler, Measure’s chief strategy officer and head of product. “Ground Control is revolutionary in its ability to enable users to fly easier and safer than ever before, automate data capture and workflows, and manage thousands of flights, all in real time.”

Measure, which has completed thousands of commercial UAS flights across a wide variety of applications, says its real-world experience informed the creation of Ground Control. Features include as follows:

• A streamlined flight app for pilots;
• Fleet-wide auditing and reporting;
• Safety controls and notifications;
• Enhanced data security;
• Real-time airspace authorization; and
• Automatic uploads of flight data and screen captures.

The platform is already in use with AES, a global power company.

“We see great value in Ground Control’s worldwide flight management, starting with in-flight safety risk notifications and mapping of restrictive areas,” notes Evaristo Leonardi, vice president of global operations support at AES. “Our pilots enjoy its ease of use, and our operators appreciate the automatic uploads of imagery which they use to extract valuable insights to improve our operations and safety.”

“We are so excited to bring Ground Control to customers,” adds Brandon Torres Declet, CEO of Measure. “What our own pilots and customers were looking for was a better tool for large-scale operations that offered value in improved oversight, reduced risk and a simplified user experience. We believe Measure Ground Control is the solution many customers have been waiting for.”

The app is now available for iPad in the App Store. The software is $29.99 per user per month. You can also request a free trial here.
