1. Discover & Plan

Adopting emerging technology can be daunting. But PrecisionHawk's experts can help. Draw on our pilots, accredited geospatial scientists, and policy analysts to build drone solution and/or business program. From proof-of-concept to global scale, our consultants will assist you in defining a comprehensive strategy, not just a point solution.

First, they’ll learn what you aim to measure. With those objectives in mind, our consultants will assist you in scoping your drone platform or program:

  1. Business case development: They’ll help you identify the costs of your solution and forecast return on investment.
  2. Aerial technology definition: Based on your area of interest, our flight operations leaders will specify the appropriate drones, sensors, and software.
  3. Process and safety management system design: We’ll develop an approach to drone operations that integrates with your current operations and safety protocols.
  4. Data quality and security diagnostics: Our data analysts will account for quality requirements, as well as your data secure chain of custody.
  5. Change management and governance: PrecisionHawk’s project managers will help you manage change and the overall program.

With this thoughtfully designed program, you’ll be ready to fly.


Drones are more accessible than ever before, with more models offering longer flight times, greater payload capacities and the ability to fly in varying conditions. Selecting the right drone for a given application can be challenging. PrecisionHawk helps professionals select the optimal drones for their missions, resulting in faster, safer, and more precise data-gathering.

Mounted to drones, today’s advanced sensor technology has the ability to capture rich data. Data that businesses are using to solve to make more informed decisions. The sensors are smaller, lighter, more powerful and often more specialized than previous, aircraft-based versions.



In drone-based remote sensing, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) sensors are unrivaled in their geospatial precision and fidelity, with point clouds of up to 500 points/sq m and a vertical elevation accuracy of 2-3 centimeters.



Deployed on drones, thermographic sensors make it possible to collect radiometric data over wide areas and hard-to-reach places. Built-in visual and heat analytics make thermal analysis accessible for a variety of applications.



Most commonly used in farming, multispectral sensors capture both visible and invisible light radiation, dividing the spectral data into its individual bands. It can be used to monitor crop health, identify plant disease, and assess water quality.
