A firm named Birdstop asserts that there is a rapidly growing need for Beyond-Visual-Line-Of-Sight drones to monitor critical infrastructure. With oil fields, farmland, power stations, transit lines, airports, dams, water supplies and telecom at risk, any blind spots can lead to major issues, they say.
To that end, Birdstop is striving to usher in a new era of infrastructure protection. A leader in remote sensing drones, with top tier FAA approvals thanks to its patented airspace intelligence beacon, Birdstop collects detailed imagery on physical assets and locations without personnel present.
Dubbing its fleet the “Uber of Drones,” Birdstop’s constellation of cutting-edge drones, operated and monitored from the company’s NASA-style remote “Mission Control Center” in California, can be deployed to provide information that can save lives, time, resources, and money. Birdstop nodes sit on location to activate remote sensing on a moment’s notice. Each node deploys and commands a small drone to collect data in its vicinity. With active clients including power companies, telecom and municipalities, Birdstop (BirdStop.io) is positioned to provide high level monitoring to clients across the spectrum.
Birdstop, Inc. recently announced a $2.3M fundraise to expand its fleet, grow its AI capabilities, and deliver more data-driven value to customers.
