History

About Robinson Aerial Surveys, Inc.

Established in 1936, Robinson was founded by C.S. Robinson in Ithaca, NY, a civil engineer who worked for the New York State Park Commission. What started with a contract awarded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to photograph 16,000 square miles in New York State, evolved into other two companies, Robinson Airlines (later merged with Allegheny Airlines and now known as USAir) which provided airline services between Ithaca and New York City, and in 1946 the acquisition of Standard Aerial Surveys of Newark, NJ.

The next expansion for the Company was in topographic mapping. A field operation was established which utilized the Tellurometer system. During 1960, Robinson moved to Newton, New Jersey to be near the new airport being built by the Aeroflex Corporation at Andover, New Jersey. Today, Robinson has its own photographic laboratory, digital and analytical mapping systems and CADD platforms, making it a fully integrated mapping facility.

In 2011 Robinson developed an Engineering division. Our Engineering team has vast experience in MEP Design and Construction Management / Administration gained through participation in numerous, diverse projects throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Additionally, Robinson is certified DBE / MBE / SBE in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Over the years, Robinson has worked on over 10,000 projects for major clients.
