Lima 10 January 2019: Wingtra, manufacturing WingtraOne VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drones, has signed a partnership agreement with Geo Systems S.A.C. who are experienced consultants in the areas of Topography, Cartography and Satellite Geodesy.
“Peru’s special geography opens up the opportunity for manufactures of traditional fixed-wing and multi-rotor drones to cover most of the cadastral and land surveying needs but the partnership with Wingtra, with its VTOL features, will bring us the capability to offer our customers the right solutions for limited take-off/landing spaces, while delivering exceptional results.” stated Carlos Purizaga, Sales Manager at Geo Systems.
“We are proud to have an exciting new partner in Peru,” said Percy Paredes, LATAM Sales Manager at Wingtra. “The leadership and strong network that Geo Systems has will be an asset to professionals for drone surveying and mapping applications and we are excited to launch the VTOL WingtraOne solution there.”
WingtraOne takes-off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing aircraft. This technology eliminates the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry heavier and thus better cameras (e.g. 40MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas.
The new PPK (post process kinematics) upgrade allows the WingtraOne to reach new level of accuracy. With the highest quality sensors: the Sony RX1RII and state-of-the-art PPK system, WingtraOne reaches accuracy down to 1 cm without any ground control points.
Wingtra develops, produces and commercializes high precision VTOL drones that collect survey-grade aerial data. Wingtra entered the market in early 2017 and has been selling globally ever since. Recently the company has raised additional $5.8M to meet the demand in 2018 and partnered with biggest surveying, mining and precision agriculture equipment dealers across the globe.
