MADTECH works with customers to determine their needs and requirements and how to best take advantage of MADTECH services. This process is called "Mission Planning" because the customer is procuring a defined mission to collect data using a drone operated by an FAA-licensed, insured, commercial drone operator who has passed a compliance course from an accredited university, such as Drone University USA in Sacramento. Mission Planning determines which reports we provide to our clients. The scope of the missions determines the cost. It also predicts the benefits -- which will outweigh the cost of the missions by at least three to one.
The price of a mission is determined by pilot and observer time, location of mission site, equipment and sensors, software needed, and report preparation time required to complete the mission. The cost of FAA clearance and compliance can also be a factor in determining final costs of a mission. MADTECH provides open book pricing on all missions. The price is offset by savings to the customer, which are determined during Mission Planning. Missions have great financial paybacks.
