Kespry’s drone-based thermal inspection solution

Kespry has launched a new fully autonomous, simple-to-use, high-resolution thermal inspection solution for commercial property and industrial facilities. Using radiometric thermal technology, the drone-based product can be used to detect potential roof damage and dimensional analysis.

The drone can identify previously-unseen damage to roofs, mechanical elements, piping and other infrastructure. Kespry’s thermal inspection solution is based on radiometric temperature analysis, which provides actionable data to people inspecting roofs. The product creates thermal inspection views, which combine pixel-level thermal data with high-resolution imagery.

“Accuracy really matters when billions of dollars of property and facilities are at risk,” said George Mathew, CEO of Kespry, in a prepared statement. “Manual inspections and first-generation drone flights are slow and inaccurate ways of attempting to understand the state of a roof and the risk that issues may have on organizations’ productivity. These earlier approaches leave surveyors, risk assessors and roof inspectors guessing at the specific location of leaks, blocked drains or damage to building infrastructure, all of which can have serious impacts on assets inside. The new Kespry solution for commercial roof inspection solves these problems.”
