Measure acquires Pilatus Unmanned to expand one-stop drone service

August 7, 2017  - By 5 Comments

Measure, a U.S. provider of drone solutions for enterprise customers, is expanding its drone engineering and equipment sales capabilities with the acquisition of Pilatus Unmanned.

Josh Kornoff, Pilatus Unmanned CEO and a pioneer in the commercial drone industry, will head Measure’s engineering team.

The acquisition marks the latest chapter in Measure’s rapid growth, highlighted by the recent introduction of new solutions and toolkits for the solar and broadcast news industries.

Pilatus Unmanned (previously known as Allied Drones) specialized in drone customization for commercial customers, leveraging Kornoff’s years of experience in designing and fabricating custom drone and payload solutions. Pilatus Unmanned was one of the first enterprise value-added resellers for commercial drone maker DJI.

“Measure is at the forefront of the emerging drone-as-a-service industry and is fundamentally changing the way businesses gather information critical to their operations,” said Kornoff, whose career also includes 15 years as a Hollywood special effects and pyrotechnics supervisor for nearly 1,000 commercials, music videos, television shows and films. “I’m excited to continue pushing the envelope in using drone technology to solve business challenges.”

Kornoff will lead Measure’s drone engineering team out of its new office in Huntington Beach, California, which includes an industrial facility equipped with the machinery, tooling, parts and components for drone customizations.

Kornoff will also serve as Measure’s lead technical advisor and will oversee support programs for toolkit customers.

“This acquisition will accelerate growth and allow us to continue to create groundbreaking solutions for our customers in energy, construction, telecommunications and media,” said Measure CEO and co-founder Brandon Torres Declet. “Expanding our engineering capacity and our ability to provide one-stop shopping for equipment and toolkits will help ensure that we can offer our customers solutions that are truly comprehensive.”
