By Brandon Torres Declet, Chief Operating Officer & Board Director of AgEagle, and President & Co-Founder of Measure.
We’re pleased to announce that we were recently acquired by AgEagle Aerial Systems (NYSE: UAVS), an industry-leading drone solutions provider. The acquisition was finalized on April 19, 2021 and will provide our team with the resources to drive innovation, deliver exceptional customer support, and foster long-term growth. With Measure’s advanced software platform now part of the AgEagle family, customers across a wide range of industries can further capitalize on the benefits of a robust drone program.
Measure brings to AgEagle a world-class team of drone technology experts with deep operational experience, tens of thousands of successful missions, and industry recognition and respect as one of the world’s leading aerial intelligence solutions companies. The acquisition represents a powerful marriage of strengths, experience and highly complementary capabilities and know-how that should earn us distinction as the leading global provider of true end-to-end drone solutions.
What The AgEagle Acquisition Means for Measure Customers
Now that we’re part of AgEagle, our team will continue to operate with the agility of a startup, while also benefiting from the resources of a publicly traded company. Customers can expect a faster pace of innovation and feature rollouts, as well as more resources and customer support. And above all, this enables us to position Measure as a reliable solutions provider for years to come in this rapidly evolving industry.
About AgEagle Aerial Systems
Current Measure customers might be interested to know that AgEagle was an early pioneer in the delivery of advanced commercial drone technologies, services and solutions. The Company’s founding premise is rooted in high performance, next-level thinking and technological innovation. Like Measure, AgEagle is focused on a range of diverse industries and applications beyond Agriculture. Rest assured, Measure will continue to support all current sectors, with plans to expand into even more verticals and industries moving forward.
Another exciting benefit of the acquisition involves MicaSense, a leading developer of patented, high precision thermal and multispectral sensors. MicaSense was also acquired by AgEagle in early 2021, and the Company will integrate Measure technology into MicaSense products. This will provide customers with the industry’s most advanced turnkey solutions for drone mapping and in-flight data.
The Path Forward
As part of the acquisition, I’ve been appointed as AgEagle’s Chief Operating Officer and a Member of the Board of Directors, while Jesse Stepler moves into a new role as Senior Vice President, Strategy and Product at Measure.
On behalf of the entire Measure team, we’re beyond excited to team up and provide you—our valued customers—with even more innovation in the years to come.
