Santiago, 14 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 Geocom. Geocom is a leading provider of geospatial equipment and solutions in Chile with their reputation extending out into South America.
“We are very pleased with the high technological level of WingtraOne and the excellent quality of its components, as well as the professionalism of the engineering team that has developed this equipment, giving an excellent support.”, stated Geocom Product Manager, Christian Michell.
Carlos Escudero, CEO of Geocom added, “We are sure that WingtraOne delivers great benefits, mainly for its vertical take-off and landing. Our customers from diverse areas, like mining and forestry, will count on a technology that is safe for them to operate, while it also delivers impressive results.”
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 sensors (e.g. 40MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas.
“We are excited to complete the partnership with Geocom. This will provide many VTOL WingtraOne drones to surveying professionals in Chile through Geocom’s extensive network. Their reliability and great reputation in South America and Chile specifically will be a great asset.”, stated Percy Paredes, Sales Manager for the Americas at Wingtra.
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 professional 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.
