We first tested our technology in 2011 by aerially reading meters in a 3.5km area for a natural gas company. The test revealed an 85% reduction in reading time compared to the traditional drive-by method. Since then, Stratocom has been unstoppable. We have refined the process and developed patent-pending technologies to collect mass data from smart meters aerially, increasing efficiency and decreasing carbon footprint.
Building The Future of Aerial Data Collection
As part of the INDROTEK GROUP OF COMPANIES, the pioneers in aerial robotics and drone defense, Stratocom has priority access to cutting-edge RPAS technology. In the next few years, there will be an exciting shift in how meters are read as ultra long-range drones (4hr+ continuous flight time) become commercially viable. This will revolutionize several industries like aerial data collection, delivery services, security, search and rescue, to name a few.
”We appreciate the professionalism of the Stratocom staff. Our reads are collected efficiently, accurately, and in a timely fashion. We are extremely happy with their service.”
