Aerodyne Group, an international AI-driven, drone-based managed solutions provider, today announced the acquisition of a controlling interest in the services business of Measure UAS, Inc., a leading aerial intelligence company. A new business entity, Aerodyne Measure Inc., has been formed to serve enterprise clients in North America.
Aerodyne Measure brings together the expertise of two leaders in the global drone services industry. Measure has conducted thousands of commercial operations for some of the biggest companies in North America, while Aerodyne has managed more than 400,000 infrastructure assets with 80,000 flight operations across 25 countries. Both companies were ranked among the top 10 drone service providers by Drone Industry Insights, a leading source for independent drone market intelligence.
Aerodyne and Measure will each participate in the management of the new Washington, D.C. based entity, while also growing their independent businesses. Aerodyne Group will continue to offer its innovative drone-based enterprise-integrated solutions to the Oil & Gas, Power, Telco,
Renewables, Construction, Agriculture and Infrastructure industries around the world, while Measure will focus on its aerial intelligence SaaS platform Ground Control TM providing an end-to-end solution to plan, execute, and manage commercial drone operations at scale.
Aerodyne Measure Inc. will provide premium, turnkey aerial inspections of infrastructure assets in the energy utilities, renewable energy, oil & gas sectors as well as roads, bridges, and ports, leveraging Aerodyne’s Vertikaliti solution suite, an end-to-end cloud-based asset management solution. By combining smart drones and AI, Vertikaliti seamlessly and effectively reinvents the way assets are managed. This solution has been proven to give clients significant performance improvement and cost optimization.
Aerodyne founder and Group CEO, Kamarul A Muhamed said, “We are proud to welcome Measure’s drone services team into the Aerodyne family. Measure has established quality processes and a reputation for excellent customer service, giving Aerodyne a strong foothold as we expand into the North American market. By combining our expertise, we have created a
business that will be a market leader from day one. With the drone industry in a consolidation phase where companies which can deliver real value will come out on top, this partnership is a timely move to position us well for the next phase of growth.”
“This agreement between Aerodyne and Measure makes each company stronger in the dynamic and competitive drone industry,” said Brandon Torres Declet, CEO and Co-Founder of Measure. “Aerodyne Measure will provide high-quality services to asset managers looking to out-source
their drone operations, while Measure will support enterprise drone programs with the most comprehensive software platform on the market. This partnership with Aerodyne, one of the largest drone operators in the world, will significantly expand the number of users on Measure
Ground Control, providing even more real-world feedback to continuously improve our platform.”
