The traditional site survey options of climbing on ladders, roofs, or using a boom lift to survey is outdated.

Autonomously site survey using WISPr Systems’ drones.

Site surveys will never be the same.

WISPr Systems’ drones complete site surveys for fixed wireless networks. Our drones are designed to handle the payload of CPE in winds and power a CPE.  Our software allows the drone to autonomously complete a site survey like never before!

Rather than wasting so much time and money surveying with a bucket truck or ladder, use WISPr Systems' aerial solution.

WISPr Systems commercial drones. Engineered to autonomously complete site surveys for CPE and tower installs.

WISPr Systems' drones are specifically engineered to manage the payload of CPE antennas in moderate to high winds. POGO's maximum payload is a 4lbs CPE antenna in 10MPH winds and the Scout's maximum payload is a 15lbs CPE antenna in 20MPH winds. 

The maximum payloads is calculated with 15lb added to the payload calculation allow cushion room for wind-load on the CPE antenna.  The convex and concave surface area of a CPE antenna introduces additional wind drag on the drone, creating 10lbs of added payload in 10MPH winds. 

Figure 1 shows an example of the surface area introducing the wind drag.

WISPr Systems drones are have mounts for CPE antennas built in. The Pogo has the undercarriage space to carry a 12" CPE and the Scout has the undercarriage space to carry a 16" CPE.

 

The drone needs to have undercarriage space to mount the CPE. Most CPE are around 6.4"-16", so having the appropriate undercarriage space is critical to flying with the CPE.

 

The illustration shows an example of the undercarriage space.

The drone’s thrusters (motors) need to be placed high enough above the drone’s central payload to naturally force the payload to stay level. This assists the machine-learned processes to increase the stability of the drone with variable payloads. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) states that the drone needs to carry payload directly under the center of gravity point on the aircraft.

The illustration shows an example of the motor placement.

To survey with a CPE, the CPE must have power!  Our drones are equipped with 24V power over ethernet (POE) port to power the CPE.  The port also allows our WISPr OS software to operate the drone and communicate with the CPE. 

WISPr Systems' drones altitude is sensed by a altimeter fused with LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) for altitude accuracy within ±2 cm for altitude and vertical control.

A first person view camera comes pre-installed on all WISPr Systems' drones to give the user a 1080p birds-eye view from drone during flight.
