About Raptor Maps

Raptor Maps makes it simple and affordable for solar companies to adopt drone technology as a tool to increase performance, reduce costs, and standardize & compare solar PV assets across a portfolio. Founded by MIT engineers, our software helps teams convert drone and asset data into accurate, high-value system analytics and reports. We work with portfolio owners, asset managers, O&M providers, EPC contractors, and independent engineers across six continents, to identify and localize anomalies that affect energy production. Our partnerships with industry leaders in drone hardware and aerial inspections make it easy for anyone to utilize drone technology and inspect their PV assets.

Technology

We have extensively used Python, Javascript (with React), Postgresql, AWS, and GCP for ML workloads, but as we grow we continue to build services and abstractions that leverage the right tool for the right job while maintaining readability and ease of use. We emphasize the core concepts, ideas, and data structures more than the particular technology/language. We do use tools like TensorFlow, OpenCV, and Numpy for image processing and our analytics engine. Many of our interfaces leverage maps or geolocation. Our mobile application uses React Native. We're approaching renewable energy digitization and software with a fresh look by blending deep engineering expertise with an eye towards the product and user experience.
