“After speaking with Skyfish customers, we quickly understood that Skyfish is unique in the commercial drone world, producing precise ‘engineering grade’ drone enabled photogrammetry and 3D Models of infrastructure,” said Bernstein.

“These are the best cell tower digital-twin models I’ve seen and could significantly enhance the cell tower industry’s inspection, measurement and mount mapping processes. The Skyfish team have invented an autonomous work drone for scanning infrastructure that enables detailed centimeter grade measurements of not only cell towers, but many critical infrastructure targets like; power lines, dams, bridges, electrical sub stations, wind turbines and airports,” said Bernstein.”

“To date, Skyfish’s amazing photogrammetry has been a bit of an industry secret but now it’s time to tell the world.”

“We are thrilled to have Steven and Henry advising the company,” said Dr. Orest Pilskalns, CEO of Skyfish. “Everyone talks about engineering grade measurement, but we actually deliver on that promise. Now engineers can feel safe signing off on drone enabled models because they are working with data they know they can trust.”

The funds are earmarked to grow customer revenue, expand drone manufacturing capacity, add to Skyfish’s existing talent pool, Skyfish said in a statement.
