Commercial drones have the potential to revolutionize mining, construction, and civil engineering. They reduce costs, improve worker safety, enable transparency and collaboration, and shave days or weeks off standard tasks.

We’re the technology company that’s already making that happen.

At Propeller Aero, we work every day to improve how worksites are managed around the world. We close the information gap between a physical worksite and the people managing it. We believe that everyone should be able to see their data and measure and manage their site themselves

Our top-tier team puts the power of drone imagery into a user-friendly toolkit. We do this through our 3D, cloud-based platform, where sophisticated engineering and photogrammetry meets intuitive design and simple workflows. Supported by our engineering team and AeroPoints hardware, we translate raw site data into readable, actionable information for our users.

Great engineering is our keystone. Without it, we couldn’t be good data translators and our vision would be unworkable. It’s our practical, results-driven side. It’s the “how” of solving everyday problems. Propeller is comprised of tight-knit, decentralized teams. Our people have the freedom to approach, own, and solve problems creatively. We’re 100% about impact, and 0% about ego. Want to know what our team actually says about us? Check out our Glassdoor here.
