Hamburg, 25.03.2021 –
When maintenance teams are assigned to inspect the state of a facility or building, there is often still a vast lack of digitization. Data, images, and reports are, in the best-case scenario, transferred digitally to the respective property management or owner. But the process often requires time, multiple hours of work, and a stack of administrative tasks.
Because of that, FlyNex and KSI have partnered to bring their solution to the European market, offering an ability to stream inspections directly from drones to project managers, service providers, and teams. Available now, the German drone management platform FlyNex, in partnership with the US-based data specialists KSI Data Sciences, have created a solution that makes remote inspections or maintenance more effortless than ever. A pilot is on-site operating a drone, the rest of the team can be distributed worldwide viewing the live-stream video from the flight and working together. The service, MissionKeeper on FlyNex, is currently available for European companies.
Browser-based for All Online Devices
The KSI MissionKeeper app streams video or data feeds directly from a drone to a distributed team. Service teams and employees can view and collaborate together on any device. MissionKeeper on FlyNex is cloud-based, meaning customers can quickly deploy the new solution based on the FlyNex Enterprise Suite without the need for their own IT infrastructure or additional devices. Team members have access to the video and data feeds via a web interface. The stream is retrievable with every internet-capable device and from anywhere in the world. A significant time-saver for collaborative working, inspection teams have all information directly available and make immediate decisions together.
“As more and more drones and sensors are deployed in the workplace we are already seeing the need for widespread collaboration in real time and an increased demand for connected devices and interoperable apps,” Jon Gaster, CEO of KSI Data Sciences. “Bringing together the drone management platform from FlyNex and MissionKeeper from KSI will unlock new ways of making data and information accessible across the organization, delivering better outcomes and an improved return on any drone investment.”
“There is a high demand for remote data collection and platforms providing data-based insights on objects, properties, and assets. Offering the full workflow of managing and deploying drones for data collection, plus enabling teams and service partners to directly access the drone, is a true game-changer. The KSI MissionKeeper app for drones is such an enabler for construction, security and rescue, property management, and more,” adds Andreas Dunsch, CEO and co-founder at FlyNex.
