Red Mountain Scientific provides the data you need, in the way you want it, to most effectively manage your wind turbine or cell tower assets. Unlike other drone inspection companies, we see the drone simply as an advanced, aerial sensing device. Don’t get us wrong, we use best in class commercial drones for drone inspections and leverage our own custom software to fly consistent, systematic autonomous missions. However, what makes us different is our commitment to the data. We utilize the power of cloud computing and our propriety AI software to analyze your data to provide concise reporting and analytics that allow you to act proactively. Because we are experts in the power of data, we can help you use it to transform your business
Regardless if you work with wind turbines or cell towers, it takes hours for someone to rack up
and climb and/or conduct the tedious groundwork to perform a proper inspection. Which means you
have to make significant trade-offs about what gets inspected.
(Further complicating things, long inspection times mean you’re always working around the weather. And as we all know, high tower work is also inherently dangerous.)
Because typical inspection methods can only access a portion of your total structure,
you end up with incomplete, inaccurate, and often, incorrect information.
(On top of that, manual inspections are subjective, every climber is different. This variation makes it impossible to systematically replicate inspections, perform trend analysis, or make critical management decisions.)
We deliver a superior level of dependability and performance of wind turbine inspections by utilizing best in class commercial drones, our own custom-built flight management software, on-board collision detection and avoidance technology to enable fully autonomous drone missions that capture images of blades at close range and 20 MP resolution. Missions are completed in minutes enabling the inspection of multiple towers in a day with little down time.
We deliver a superior level of tower dependability and performance by utilizing best in class commercial drones for the cell tower inspection process instead of manual climbing techniques. Our custom-built software combined with on-board collision detection and avoidance technology enables fully autonomous drone missions to capture tower images at all heights and configurations at close range and 20 MP resolution. Missions are completed in minutes enabling the inspection of multiple towers in a day with less risk to human life.

After returning home following a year in New Zealand, Sam and his brother traveled the country inspecting cell phone towers for one of the world’s largest tower ownership groups. Joining Red Mountain was an exciting opportunity to help bring new and innovative technologies to the industry.
When he’s not working, you’ll find Sam playing in the great outdoors. Whether it’s hiking, biking, camping, climbing, or just slinging a hammock, his making the most of his time outside.
In addition to daily problem solving, over the last year Erickson has also rekindled his relationship with neural networks and AI as a new era of Machine Learning emerges.

In his free time, Matt likes to listen to music without a care in the world while taking a leisurely bike ride around town. In addition, he loves to sit down with a group of friends and play a few board games or meet up with his weekly D&D group.
Graduating from Colorado State University with 2 degrees: Masters in Electrical Engineering and a Focus on Digital Signal Processing. Also, a Bachelors degree in Physics.
Walking out, the sage brush quietly hushes in the wind. A drone sizes up the tower and using a custom flight path application, obtains valuable information about the structure: is there damage? what devices are latched on? or, did the last team complete their work? The ability to acquire information from a drone is quickly gaining utility in industry, and now Red Mountain is reinventing how people interact with that data; recreating the drone's vision of the structure, visually and by leveraging valuable metadata like gps coordinates or camera settings.Read more »
