Wingtra takes 2nd place in Top 100 Swiss Startup Awards, landing at the peak of worldwide innovation

On the evening of September 9th, the tenth-anniversary edition of the TOP 100 Swiss Startup Awards showcased and ranked Switzerland’s top-performing startups. For the past 10 years, Switzerland has ranked at the top of the Global Innovation Index. This standing casts an even more impressive light on the winners, particularly Wingtra and its world-class VTOL drone technology, which came in second place in overall Swiss startup ranking and first place in the drone category.

A jury of experts critically evaluated firms and chose Wingtra as an outstanding and promising technology. This award is an obvious nod of approval for the automated VTOL drone that has already demonstrated its power to change surveying and mapping. 

Indeed, Wingtra’s 80+ employees include a robust team of leading engineers who have poured seven years of research and development into a user-friendly, broad-coverage and high-accuracy aerial mapping solution. They continue to hone the technology to offer the most reliable and effective UAV in the industry. With more than 60 distributor partners around the world, Wingtra is positively disrupting the way survey teams tackle geospatial measurements across industries.

The Top 100 Swiss Startup Awards event gathered representatives from 100 startups, 100 investors, and key partners of the TOP 100. For the first time, the award ceremony was live-streamed. The awards were presented in partnership with Credit Suisse, SVC, Swiss Prime Site, SECA, and digitalswitzerland.

Wingtra and Pix4Dmatic integration brings 2x faster orthomosaic and point cloud generation

Wingtra’s recent WingtraHub 1.0 release has launched to fully support a lean workflow between the WingtraOne drone and Pix4Dmatic, a fresh Pix4D product for reliable speedy processing of large datasets. This integration is especially key since Wingtra’s VTOL drone is designed to map large sites fast and safely while providing the best possible data quality. The high-quality datasets that result can now be processed into point clouds and orthomosaics at twice the speed on average with Pix4Dmatic.
