April 20, 2020, Santa Monica, CA—AirMap, the leading digital airspace and automation company serving the drone economy, is partnering with FEDS, the first and leading Drone-As-A-Service (DaaS) company in the Middle East, to provide its JobSight solution to construction companies across the Middle East and North Africa.

The region’s construction sector has boomed in recent years as cities rush to create smart, 21st century infrastructure. In order to meet demand and keep their projects on time and on budget, construction firms need access to high-quality drone captures that produce actionable business intelligence.

JobSight is an end-to-end drone operations and data processing automation platform that gives construction professionals unparalleled visibility into construction projects. With JobSight, construction companies can monitor progress, improve safety, reduce rework, and increase efficiency across their entire project life cycle.

As the Middle East’s leading Drone Service Provider, FEDS delivers drone inspections, progress monitoring, and surveying and mapping to the construction and infrastructure, oil and gas, and sustainable energy and utility industries. It maintains a network of 40 drone operators across the region.

“In order to maximize value from their drone operations, construction companies need to harness automation to ensure that their aerial inspections produce high-quality images at regular, repeatable intervals,” said FEDS CEO Rabih Bou Rashid. “JobSight does precisely that, and we are proud to offer it to our customers.”

“With JobSight, construction firms can gain critical site intelligence that saves time and money,” said AirMap CEO David Hose. “We’re proud to work with FEDS to extend those benefits to construction firms in the Middle East and North Africa.”
