Will Hirschfeld is PrecisionPoint’s new UAS Pilot/3D Solutions Specialist. He comes to us from Beck’s Hybrid, a specialty seed company, where he became an expert on all things UAS and received his FAA Part 107 Certification. That means Will has been cleared to operate small UAVs up to 55 pounds, including our new DJI Inspire 2.
“The Inspire 2 is a great platform that stays stable even in the wind to capture really crisp imagery,” Hirschfeld said. “The combination of stationary laser scanning and UAS photogrammetry will allow PrecisionPoint to create unique deliverables for 3D reality capture and BIM customers.”
“Will’s first responsibility is to help us offer a more complete 3D reality capture service for our existing client base, especially in the Building Information Model (BIM) sector,” said Mark Hanna, PrecisionPoint Founder and President. “Our new drone-based services will be built on our core 3D scanning and modeling competencies that we have developed over the past decade. We’re excited to have Will on the PrecisionPoint team!”
Will is a native of nearby Noblesville, Indiana, and earned his degree in Agriculture from Purdue University. He is married with two young children, and when he’s not chasing them around the house, Will spends his free time hiking, mountain biking, running and fly fishing.
