Cyberhawk has entered an agreement with aerial data acquisition specialists, Azure Integrity, to offer an end-to-end inspection solution for the power grid, construction, energy and mining industries across Australia and New Zealand. The agreement combines Azure’s specialist aerial inspection capabilities with Cyberhawk’s cloud-based analytical software, iHawk.
iHawk empowers asset owners and project managers to effectively assess the condition of critical infrastructure and monitor the progress of capital projects, by unlocking the power of drone data collection. Azure Integrity will offer iHawk software to help their clients make sense of the drone data they’ve collected and to support evidence-based decision-making.
iHawk can be used to analyse datasets from multiple sources which prevents data silos, and replaces partial information stored in disparate systems, with a single software solution.
The fully enabled IoT solution integrates with third-party sensors and APIs. Geospatial information, including images acquired from ground cameras, CCTV, drones, and autonomous technologies form data layers to provide asset owners with an unprecedented insight into the condition of critical infrastructure and major capital projects.
iHawk software stores visual data captured from drones and other inspection methods to help asset owners monitor the condition of critical energy infrastructure.
Barry McGinn, Sales Director - Capital Projects, Cyberhawk said: “We’re excited to be partnering with Azure Integrity to help iHawk become more established across Australia and New Zealand. Azure Integrity are recognised as specialists in data acquisition for asset digitisation and this capability complements our iHawk offering perfectly.”
Craig Macintosh, Chief Remote Pilot, Azure Integrity said: “iHawk fills the gap for Azure by providing our clients with a software solution that can manage the visual data for multiple assets on a single platform. iHawk offers our clients a more in-depth level of data visualisation and effective reporting capabilities that they’ve never experienced before.”

Azure Integrity are an ambitious start-up headquartered in southern Australia. Craig commented: “South Australia is regarded as a globally connected state of innovation, and the location of our HQ allows us to tap into a thriving technology network to scale our operations across Australia and New Zealand with equal measure. The agreement with Cyberhawk helps us to strengthen our business strategy and will play a key role in job creation, supporting STEM development and inspiring industries to adopt new technologies.”
