Arad, 18 September 2018: Wingtra, the Swiss drone company that develops the first commercially successful VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone, has signed a reseller agreement with Giscad SRL, a Romanian certified Trimble dealer and distributor of topographic and construction equipment.
“We look forward to offering Wingtra’s solution to our customers in Romania. Surveying and mapping professionals will have access to the VTOL, highly accurate capabilities of the WingtraOne, which combines many of the benefits seen in fixed-wing and multirotor drones. This partnership will help customers to have better access and support through the Giscad network.” said Iosif Ameziane, Executive Manager of Giscad.
In regards to the recent partnership, Antonio Živolić, Sales Manager at Wingtra, stated, “This new partnership with Giscad will mean that more surveying and mapping professionals in Romania have access to the efficiency boost and cost-savings provided by WingtraOne VTOL fixed-wing drone. Customers will benefit from the highest quality technical support from the Giscad team in offices in Arad and Bucharest. We are excited to work closely with Giscad for years to come!
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 professional mapping cameras (e.g. 40MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas.
The 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.
