Quote from Key Partner:

SMG is nothing short of driven. Committed to excellence and doing the right thing, SMG exemplifies Florida Power & Light’s core values as they work alongside our Technology and Innovation team. By working to improve FPL’s flight profile and collection methods, SMG is enhancing our storm response and infrastructure using LiDAR technology.

SMG has pivoted and grown as a company with the use of new manned flights that improve drone performance through the analysis of altitude, speed and angle. It is exciting to see this growth and how far they have come with their innovative technology. Thank you to FPL’s in-house innovation hub, 35 Mules, for fostering this connection. 

-Eric Schwartz, Manager of Technology and Innovation team for FPLAir
