Our focus was locating the finest product made with the best workmanship and the most reliability. No other product set the bar as high as Microdrones.

Steve McKinzie, President & CEO CSI Mapping

Steve McKinzie, President and CEO of CSI Mapping, conducted a thorough worldwide search to find the optimal integrated aerial solution to assist in collision scene reconstruction and investigation using unmanned aircraft systems. He concluded that Microdrones commercial grade products should be the standard.

McKinzie said, “Our focus was locating the finest product made with the best workmanship and the most reliability. No other product set the bar as high as Microdrones. Our biggest concern is a failure in flight, which is alleviated by partnering with Microdrones. Their integrated solutions have gained the trust of more than 1000 businesses worldwide. They have taken the guesswork out of the process, so you are ensured a perfectly integrated aerial solution that performs flawlessly from start to finish. We don’t buy our police officers kit cars to patrol in and they deserve a product like Microdrones to perform their jobs in a reliable, safe manner.”

CSI Mapping’s area of specialty is critical incident management on highways, which are highly dynamic and dangerous environments. Operations are designed not to further complicate the scene but to assist in the quick accurate documentation of roadway geometry and evidence. Microdrones mdLiDARmdMapper and mdTector solutions can help reduce time spent at collision sites, allowing for rapid restoration of traffic flow and the safety of investigative members.

A Forensic Computer Assisted Design Model

“The mdMapper units will by far be the core of our application,” notes McKinzie. “The mdLidar unit will be the product that leads the industry in safely collecting data points. As you know highways carry large volumes of chemicals. The mdTector, we hope, will be the first of many chemical detectors that can save the lives of first responders. Equipment can be replaced while the preservation of life and limb is paramount. I am confident that CSI Mapping and Microdrones partnership will continue to provide the best service and product to our public servants.”

Rick Rayhel, Microdrones Sales Manager for the Western US, looks forward to this collaboration. "Microdrones is very pleased CSI Mapping selected our integrated systems to aid in their efforts. For over 20 years Law Enforcement has trusted CSI Mapping to supply Forensic Mapping Technology & Training and we know that our products will meet and exceed their standards and expectations."
