Drone-Augmented Engineering

Sierra Overhead Analytics (SOA) is a civil engineering, environmental engineering, and computational modeling firm. We gather remote sensing data for use as an input in inspection, analysis, and design workflows.

SOA operates UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) to collect most of our remote sensing field data. We can collect data for clients as a stand-alone product, but our team of scientists and professional engineers can also use collected data to deliver real-world decision making advisory reports and detailed permitting packages.
