In its second iteration, the Kespry Drone 2.0 features a lighter weight that allows the drone to fly twice as long and cover twice the ground area.
The new unit can fly more than 30 minutes per flight, covering up to 150 acres at a 400-foot altitude. At the same time, it can operate effectively in wind speeds of up to 25 miles per hour.
A customized Sony industrial camera captures more geospatial data for detailed 3D models to assist in mine planning, operations, inspection, and safety.
At less than 4 pounds, 7 ounces, the drone falls into the ‘Micro UAV’ category for streamlined regulatory compliance.
