Blue Skies Consulting
Since 1999, Blue Skies has specialized in aerial photography for mapping and remote sensing applications for federal and private sector clients. Blue Skies is a woman-owned small business and is certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) with the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program and the New Mexico Unified Certification Program. In 2005, Blue Skies’ quality management system for aerial photography for mapping and surveying applications became ISO certified and is currently certified to the latest ISO 9001:2008 standard.
In October of 2011, Blue Skies took delivery of the only photogrammetric digital mapping camera in the state of New Mexico. The new Microsoft UltraCam Lp (11,704 x 7920 pixels) is equipped with 5-hertz airborne GPS and a Northrup Grumman LN-200 Inertial Measurement Unit. The camera system is fully integrated with a Leica Geosystems gyro-stabilized camera mount and the Track ‘Air flight management system. The new camera system has filled a void in the local marketplace with a modern camera system equipped with the latest technology.
Blue Skies does more for its customers than provide superior quality imagery. As a small business, we take a team-oriented approach to ensure the greatest success for your projects. We ensure that we understand what your project requirements are, assist with flight planning and control layout, coordinate the flight schedule for optimal acquisition parameters, and deliver the highest-quality imagery and metadata in a timely fashion. As a testament to our commitment to our customers, Blue Skies was awarded the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year for 2003 and, more recently, the USDA Farm Service Agency’s Woman-Owned Business Contractor of the Year for 2010.
