Keystone Aerial Surveys gets top USDA FSA small-business honor.

Keystone Aerial Surveys Inc., Philadelphia, has been named the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) Farm Service Agency (FSA) 2004 Woman-Owned Business Contractor of the Year. Mary Potter, president and owner, and Ken Potter, executive vice president, travelled to Washington, D.C., to accept the award in a ceremony at the USDA on June 22, 2004. The USDA FSA's Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO) nominated the company.

W. Geoffrey Gabbott, contracting officer for the USDA FSA APFO, said in part, "The exemplary performance that Keystone Aerial Surveys Inc. always exhibits in the successful completion of USDA projects is only surpassed by their outstanding proficiency in delivering the highest quality product. We congratulate Keystone on the well-deserved award."

Keystone has completed numerous projects for USDA. Over the past four years, Keystone has acquired imagery of more than 88,000 Primary Sampling Units (PSUs). In 2003, Keystone flew more than 25,000 miles of photography in Oklahoma and Kansas for the National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP).

Since its founding in 1963, Keystone has grown from two to 32 employees; one aircraft to ten, and one aerial camera to nine aerial cameras. The company has its own hangar and photographic laboratory, state-of-the-art computer systems, topnotch quality control processes, well-trained crews and contract management expertise. Throughout its history, the company's business focus has been to provide quality aerial surveys to its customers' specifications on time.
