Our Story

Our Commitment

We commit to providing our clients with the best information possible, faster and more efficiently than any other supplier. By integrating and controlling the entire sequence from data collection to analysis and reporting, we invest in the best possible sensors for the task, deploy the most efficient aerial collection vehicles and optimize the data analysis to provide the highest quality results for our clients at the least cost.

What We Do?

Superior Results with Leading Technology

Precision Vectors utilizes a new layer of technology in aerial data collection to provide our clients with high quality imagery for superior results.

For agriculture we collect crop health data at the level of precision you want and provide it in the form you require. At 5 cm GSD we collect data at 3,000 acres per hour and at 30 cm GSD we are collecting data at 50,000 acres per hour.

For Wildfire Management we provide auto-detection of fire and hot spot locations, with real time mapping of the fire. This is a new tool in the wildfire fighting arsenal which can be used to improve resource management and reduce the cost of fighting wildfires.

For pipeline utility companies we provide detailed imagery of the pipeline, collected at 100 mph, 3,000 feet over the pipeline, which creates a digital record of the pipeline and enables detailed inspection of the ROW, precise topographic mapping, volumetric calculations and vegetation assessment.

Our data processing is completed in-house which permits customised solutions and historical data retention and access for our clients.
