How It Works

With Kespry, there are no joysticks to worry about. There are no SD Cards to fumble with. There are no complicated data conversion applications for processing. It’s one complete solution from drone to data.

Step One

Step One: Plan and Fly

iPad Mission Planning and Autonomous Flight

Our iPad app walks you through a simple three-step process:


  1. Determine the area to survey or inspect
  2. Identify flight heights to capture data
  3. Complete preflight checklist to ensure the mission is safe and compliant

Once the drone is launched by tapping the “take-off” button, the drone flies the mission plan autonomously, then returns to the take-off area for landing.


Step Two

Step Two: Automated Analysis

In-the-field roof assessments and rapid delivery of survey data for mining and construction

Once the drone data has been captured, it is uploaded to the Kespry Cloud.

With the Kespry inspection solution, fast processing and mobile tools enable access to drone data within minutes, providing “in the field” analysis and claims decisions in as little as 1 hour.

For aggregates, mining, and construction, Kespry automatically generates 2D and 3D models of the entire site ready for analysis.

Step Three

Step Three: Business Insights

Analytics and Reports in Minutes

A complete model of a site or roof is available for users to accurately determine distances, elevations, and volumes.

For insurance applications, high-resolution roof reports using industry standard processes such as test squares and dimensional analysis can be used to resolve claims decisions or be shared with claims processing systems. Aggregates, mining, and construction users can generate stockpile volumes, cut/fill analysis, and detailed topography across an entire site. This analysis can then be outputted to the system or process used to plan and manage that site.

I love the simplicity of the Kespry system. That was a very attractive aspect for Kespry. Its simplicity, the lack of joysticks. It was so cool to program the mission on an iPad. It takes off, it does its thing, it comes back.

You don't need to fly with a joystick worried about flying into a building, piece of equipment, or a person. You plan a flight in a safe zone and you're ready to go. If you can operate an iPad, you can fly the drone. That's the simplicity of this system.
