AUVSI North Carolina

Situational Summary

  • Precision Hawk would like to be set up with partners in 60 to 90 days. 
  • They would like a partner to think outside the box and be able to challenge the orthodox way of doing things in order to help improve the product suite.
  • The current codebase is based on coding standards from DJI - a Shenzhen, China-based Unmanned Aircraft System (drone) manufacturer.
  • The intention is to move off proprietary DJI code components to a non-DJI, agnostic set of code standards for Unmanned Aircraft Systems. This will address concerns about the ability to configure the firmware and software settings such as issues highlighted by government assessments of DJI software and where it was determined that it was not possible to prevent to decline and lockout any device information sharing including telemetry through aircraft, software or applications preventing any automated uploads or downloads.
  • An example of such issues is highlighted in this US Department of the Interior report on DJI's non-compliance with DOI requirements.
  • The current tech stack is Java backend and React frontend, with Android applications for tablet use.
  • AWS hosting, but should be able to be hosted in an Azure environment if needed.

Projects for Partner Consideration:

Precision Flight Application:

  • Rewrite to be vendor agnostic. 6 months - 1-year effort.
  • 5 developers
  • 2 testers
  • 1 QA
  • 1 architect

Flight Automation Software:

  • Rewrite to be vendor agnostic. Documentation will need to be compiled (currently missing documentation)

Precision Mapper rewrite.

  • The application is used to plan repeatable flights for inspections.
  • Precision Mapper synchronizes back to the decision analytics suite of tools.
  • These applications are tablet-based (Android) and Windows-based for laptop use.
  • 3 months effort
  • 4 developers
  • 2 testers
  • 1 QA
  • 1 architect

Multi-Spectral Camera Analysis:

  • Using Vegetation Index algorithms to determine the health of plants in order to highlight at-risk plants such as trees that could fall or encroach on vital infrastructure and cause power outages, road closures, and other disruptive events.
  • The partner should have some experience in photogrammetry and computer-based vision.
  • 1 year - 18 months duration
  • 6-8 developers
  • 3 testers
  • BA
  • Data scientist
  • Architect

Lidar Technology: 

  • Produce 3D images and measurements of infrastructure, and also measure vegetation encroachment on infrastructure. Identification of changes that could impact the performance and serviceability of infrastructure is a key use case.
  • The partner should have some experience in photogrammetry and computer-based vision, as well as matching algorithms.
  • 1 year - 18 months duration
  • 6-8 developers
  • 3 testers
  • BA
  • Data scientist
  • Architect

Drone Project A:

Enables on-demand aerial imagery by connecting businesses to commercially licensed pilots. The platform matches drone pilots to aerial image customers. The current platform was built as a B2C offering and the intention is to build out a more feature-rich platform for B2B users. The functionality will include job posting, procure-to-pay processes, including issuing 1099's to drone pilots and including CRM functionality to manage customers and drone pilots. ERP components would be a good starting point for basic processes.

  • 6-8 developers
  • 3 testers
  • BA
  • Data scientist
  • Architect

What Intetics has to say about your project

Dear Ryan,

I am glad to continue cooperation with you on presales related to the “geo” domain. All six opportunities are very interesting for us and we have required experience in the requested functionality:

  1. Projects 1 and 2 (flight application & flight automation) – there is experience in the development and refactoring of the DJI SDK-based mobile application in the company. Also, we have experts working with Ardupilot for the development of custom mission planners for new UAV models. Finally, we developed a few vendor-agnostic software for preprocessing of the data from ground geodetic hardware.
  2. Precision mapper rewrite – we have experts in the development of custom software (viewers, editors for 2d, 3d data, custom processing plugins, development/integration of Machine learning models for the automation of the geodata processing). Regarding repeatable flight planning – as I mentioned, we have quite good knowledge in the mission planners' development for UAVs.
  3. Project 3 and 4 – we have the necessary experience in photogrammetry and computer vision. For example, for the time being, we have an ongoing project where a strong knowledge of photogrammetry is used. The second example is the deformations monitoring tool that helps the user to define deformation trends based on series of lidar point clouds. Also, regarding computer vision, we have experience in automated feature extraction projects based on multispectral and lidar data (even based on Ultra Wide Band radars).
    1. Multi-Spectral Camera Analysis – we have experience in all stages of work with multispectral data: preprocessing – an enhancement – filtering – orthophoto plan creation automation – editors – combination with other types of the data (lidar, radar, IoT, etc) – visualization, analytics. We know how to work with UAV, aerial, and satellite multispectral data, as well as how to combine them.
    2. Lidar data – we have experience in the development of custom solutions for visualization, filtering, classification of lidar point clouds. Regarding measurement – we have experience not only in the development of tools for measurements but also in the development of automated ML-based solutions for that.
  1. Drone Project A – we have such experience but not for the UAV domain (for example, for food delivery), as well we developed marketplaces for multispectral data, and now we how on the platform of the surveying as a service for one of our Clients in Africa.

Ryan, please find the presentation with case studies for each potential project here. Also, I’d like to propose to you our assistance in the preparation of the proposal. We just would like to know what kind of information of our experience, approach to the development of software solutions, or our vision on each of mentioned opportunities you need. We are ready to perform additional researches related to each project (we have available one of our Business Analyst, most experiences in Geosolutions, for the next few days)

So please do not hesitate to contact me anytime should you have any questions or needs.

 Best regards,

Dr. Alexander Tretyakov

Business Development Director, Digital and Geo Solutions

What Teracode has to say about your project

Gents - 

Thank you for spending time with us yesterday morning. These opportunities are very interesting and exciting projects for the Tera team. 

In terms of deliverables, I attached an overview of a solution TeraCode led and executed that utilizes a number of data collection methods with drones on an abandoned well project that align fairly well with your client's requirements for projects 4 & 5.

We also have a great deal of experience developing platforms that project 5A outlines. We can dive deeper into these experiences when we speak with your client.

Let us know if you have any questions and when we can meet for a prep session.


John Atchley, VP of Business Development at TeraCode

After you review this proposal please respond with feedback and questions so that we can clarify your needs and preferences.

The next recommended step is to have a brief 1 hour video call with two or more recommended partners using a simple agenda below. You will use the calls to validate shared information while exploring other related topics like how they work with clients and how they would create and ramp up your team, what software development methods they use with clients, case studies, metrics, etc... You can choose to keep the call at the business level or you can make it more technical.

Partner Intro Video Call - Recommended Agenda

  • 15 min: Overview of your company background and project goals and objectives.  
  • 15 min: Partner overview and review of their ability to support your software development needs
  • 25 min: Q & A 
  • 5 min: Next Steps
