Maser Consulting P.A., a nationwide consulting and engineering design firm, has announced that it is teaming with Pulse Aerospace, a developer of helicopter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) platforms in the United States. Maser Consulting will team with Pulse Aerospace to integrate Pulse’s unparalleled UAS flight control, payload, and endurance capabilities technology into high-value UAS solutions.
Maser Consulting has recently expanded their expertise into UAS based measurement solutions in addition to their existing geospatial survey technologies that includes terrestrial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and mobile LiDAR. This teaming effort will enable Maser Consulting to collaborate with Pulse Aerospace to expand development of high-value UAS based workflows for the commercial market.
Use of UAS based measurement technologies will grow as customers understand the value, affordability and inherent safety of using UAS in their daily operations. The combination of Maser Consulting as solution provider, with Pulse’s UAS technology, fills a void between understanding the customer need and the development of customized UAS technology solutions for Maser Consulting’s customers.
“Pulse Aerospace is the clear leader in UAS technology and we see their platforms being instrumental in our development of quantifiable UAS sensor technology workflows,” said Mark Pitchford, National Director of UAS technologies for Maser Consulting. “Their value proposition in flight control software, flight time, payload flexibility and stability are critical for advanced UAS sensor deployment. Pulse’s willingness to adapt pricing models to meet the needs of both industry and public agencies puts advanced UAS sensor technology within reach for many organizations.”
Maser Consulting currently provides survey and measurement support for construction, transportation and development support primarily across the United States. By adding UAS technology, Maser Consulting is able to provide measurement solutions specifically designed for the power utility, oil/gas, environmental and emergency response markets. The Maser Consulting UAS team has thousands of UAS flight hours with an impeccable flight safety record, and over 100 years of combined engineering consulting expertise.
Pulse Aerospace designs and manufactures the VAPOR family of UAV aircraft that combines precision flight control systems for industry leading flight times and payload capacity. For over a decade, Pulse has been working with a broad array of industries and UAS users including agriculture, mining, survey (geospatial), emergency management, energy, university, military and non-military government agencies. The company’s VAPOR systems carry a wide array of sensors, LiDARs, gamma, magtometers, and both spectral and infrared cameras. This advanced technology enables customers to collect data quickly and efficiently to make actionable decisions.
“It’s the commitment to drive sensor integration and UAS hardware that makes Pulse Aerospace the ideal partner for Maser Consulting,” said Aaron Lessig, Pulse Aerospace Chief Executive Officer. “Our capabilities in payload, flight time and mission precision are the perfect complement to the high value workflows Maser Consulting has been developing.”
