kespry droneBased on requests from commercial customers, the new Kespry Drone 2.0 now flies over 30 minutes per flight, covering up to 150 acres at a 400 foot altitude, and can operate effectively in up to 25 mph sustained winds and 35 mph wind gusts. “With the lighter and faster Kespry Drone 2.0, Lehigh Hanson sites will be able to map larger areas faster,” said Mike Moy at Lehigh Hanson. “The expanded ground coverage and obstacle avoidance will allow the plants to more effectively manage their inventories, safely assess mine pits, and help control costs.” 

The new Kespry Drone 2.0 weighs under 2 kilograms, which puts it in the “Micro UAV” category for streamlined regulatory compliance around the world. Kespry delivers a fully-automated drone system, which takes off, flies the designated flight path, and lands, all without operator intervention or even a joystick. To help customers operating 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. The new Kespry Drone 2.0 also has a lighter-weight and customized Sony industrial camera that captures more geospatial data for detailed 3D models that assist companies in areas like mine planning, operations, inspection and safety.
