Skyswoop captures infrared imagery of your solar panels to quickly identify defective panel cells, connection points and complete arrays that form individual electrical phases. This helps you ensure your solar equipment produces energy at maximum potential.

Skyswoop captures infrared video of your solar panels to identify defective solar panel cells, connection points and arrays so that any identified issues can be resolved quickly. This helps you ensure that your solar panel(s) are providing maximum output.
Skyswoop can generate interactive infrared 3D models (similar to the one below) and 2D orthomosaic maps of solar farms so you can see their current condition and level of energy absorption and view which panels or equipment are defective.
