Trimble, a developer of GPS technology, optical and inertial technologies, application software, wireless communications and services to provide commercial solutions, has announced that it has partnered with Propeller Aero to distribute its Unmanned Aircraft System analytics platform.

Propeller Aero, a Sydney and Denver based company, is a market leader in the collection, visualisation and analysis of data obtained through its UAS solutions. Through an automated set of ground control targets, cloud-based visualisation and rapid analysis platforms will bring a complete end-to-end cloud-based UAS solution the construction space.

Through Propeller Aero, users can “unlock the full value” of UAS information. Users can access simple measurement tools for surface geometry, track trends and changes across time as well as perform visual inspections.

Insights can be obtained through the UAS solutions, both locally and from remote locations and collaborate which will significantly deliver improvements in safety, efficiency and huge reductions in environmental impacts across construction worksites.

"Propeller combines ease of use with powerful analysis tools that allow users to view 2D and 3D deliverables and extract valuable information," said Scott Crozier, director of marketing for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. "Like Trimble, Propeller understands the value of quality and accurate data for integration with civil engineering and construction workflows."

"We pride ourselves in taking the most trusted, technical data and tools and wrapping that up in an easy-to-use online platform that is relevant to the entire organization, not just technical users. Working closely with Trimble demonstrates a shared commitment to achieving that vision," said Rory San Miguel, CEO of Propeller Aero. "Integrating our platform into Trimble's Connected Site solutions will bring a new class of information to construction sites and organizations globally."

This is just a further example of Trimble investing in technology solutions to enhance its offering to the construction industry. In January 2017, Construction Global spoke to Aviad Almago, Director of the Mixed Reality Programme at Trimble, as he discussed how the HoloLens from Microsoft has proven advantageous to the construction industry.
