Description

SkySpecs is a drone-based technology company from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Founded in 2012, SkySpecs has developed highly-automated drones that can carry out inspections of wind turbines in a fraction of the time it would take a ground-based crew or manually piloted drone. This makes asset inspections faster, easier and more affordable, measurably minimizing downtime and maximizing lifespan.

Wind farms are on track to supply 10% of US electricity by 2020 – more than twice the share they accounted for in 2015 – and SkySpecs operates in the $6.2B operations and maintenance subcategory of the global wind market, with opportunities to expand into other difficult-to-inspect infrastructure markets.
