RTF Signs Cooperation Agreement with TraceAir
The company TraceAir developed the first IT system in Russia to monitor and control construction projects with the help of UAVs, starting from the project design phase until the facility is put into operation. The company’s portfolio currently includes specialized products for the energy, oil and gas, mining, and forestry industries. The TraceAir team plans to expand its line of products and services in 2016.
The cooperation agreement envisages RTF providing products and services on the Russian and foreign markets as well as assistance with questions of strategic development, increasing attractiveness to investors and attracting investment.
According to Director of AeroNet Development Alexander Ryzhov, “the market for monitoring infrastructural, industrial, and civilian facilities is one of the most promising directions of development for unmanned aerial technology. The scanning of facilities or territories within a limited perimeter and the receipt, development, analysis and forecasting done based on the received data is specifically the kind of service and product that will be hugely valuable to business in the near future. These developments and approaches to working with big data help identify weak spots and significantly optimize costs, which is critical in today’s economic reality. TraceAir’s current developments are unique to Russia and have just a few competitors in the entire world. According to our estimates, the use of such technology could help cut up to 30% of construction project budgets. In the future, through the development, refinement, improvement and integration of TraceAir technology with other IT products on the market, this approach could become its own standard, not just in Russia, but worldwide.”
“TraceAir offers its customers a wide variety of data, analysis and forecasting from the excavation assessment and project planning stage through building construction and landscaping. Our system is aimed at tackling two key problems of any construction project – timing and costs. We currently work with the largest construction companies in Russia and have saved them dozens of millions of rubles. Our main task now is to make our technology known throughout the country, so that everyone could try it and understand that the future is already upon us. In the next few years, the world will be created anew. The most important thing is to make sure that builders don’t miss out on this moment. I am confident that our partnership with RTF will allow us to more quickly reach our goals of making Russian business more technological, modern, effective, and oriented toward the future!” noted TraceAir General Director Dmitry Korolev.
