We deliver the industry’s most complete data

We invest actively in leading-edge technology and our developers work directly with leading industry providers to enhance their tools to produce better solutions for our clients.

Our field crews utilize the latest GPS equipment and ground-based LiDAR scanners to collect massive amounts of aboveground data. Deploying best-in-class aerial LiDAR sensors increases our capabilities for gathering greater point density at a faster scan rate—which means we can capture more accurate data, faster. And with our own fixed-wing aircraft, we have greater control over the surveying schedule.

In addition, SAM has developed an unmanned aerial system inspection program to collect and analyze data that is helping utilities nationwide identify potential failures in their system before they arise.

Our data in your preferred software language

At SAM, we excel at delivering the data you need, just the way you want it. Every project includes a data review with a SAM expert to address any questions you may have or customizations you may need. Our easy-to-use deliverables are designed to be integrated seamlessly into your workflow. We have experience working with a wide array of industry software, as well as our own proprietary software developed to address specific client needs. And our file management platforms make it simple to share files and data with your team. SAM deploys its in-house Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) staff with a wide array of geophysical locating equipment to locate and mark existing underground utilities and provide customer-driven deliverables.

We’ve also developed a proprietary tracking system that provides detailed insight into job efficiencies. These insights allow us to deliver more accurate bids and jobsite reporting.

Proven expertise in the renewable energy market

SAM offers a full range of geospatial, utility engineering, and inspection solutions to support the renewable energy industry, and our capabilities are aligned with the specific needs of renewable developers. By providing local market knowledge, the horsepower of a national firm, and the ability to meet the most demanding schedules, we’ve successfully completed over 230 renewable energy programs in 34 states in the past three years.

We prioritize security

Like our clients in electric power distribution and generation, SAM prioritizes security at every step. We maintain compliance with the NERC CIP-013-1 standard on supply chain cybersecurity for your protection. Due to our complete in-house processing and data storage capabilities, clients can rest assured that SAM will not utilize offshore labor at any point during your undertaking.

By working with one fully integrated provider to meet a range of needs, public utilities and electrical cooperatives benefit from a seamless process and limit data sharing across multiple contractors.
