Sewall and its long-term aerial subcontractor Richard Crouse & Associates, Inc. (RC&A), have entered into a teaming agreement to expand mutual capabilities, services and client base in aerial image and LiDAR data acquisition.

Under the terms of the agreement, RC&A will lease Sewall’s aircraft and associated aerial equipment, positioning the firm to provide faster mobilization across a broader geography to both Sewall and its existing clientele. The agreement positions Sewall to offer clients enhanced services in digital imagery and LiDAR acquisition and a wider range of downstream services in LiDAR processing and analysis—engineering-scale mapping for site design, canopy heights assessment for forest harvest scheduling, and ROW feature classification for powerline, road and rail-line management.

According to David Edson, Sewall CEO/President, “The agreement aligns the companies in a complementary relationship that promotes individual business strengths. RCA will focus on the delivery of geospatial data commodities; Sewall will focus on consulting—developing data, applications, and integrated systems to meet client needs. Together, Sewall and RCA will provide a total offering that will create greater customer value in the marketplace.” The offering combines a range of digital camera systems, sensors, and fixed wing and helicopter aircraft, which will now operate out of three facilities in Maine, Maryland, and South Carolina. RC&A President Richard Crouse says, “The benefits of our teaming arrangement are mutual and long term, enabling RC&A to stay current with the technology, and Sewall to deliver industry-standard solutions based on the technology. It strategically positions both firms for the future.”
