Wingtra has signed a reseller agreement with Sitech Louisiana, an authorised Trimble distribution partner in Louisiana.
The agreement comes as the Swiss drone company, which manufactures the VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone WingtraOne, continues to grow its global footprint.
“We thoroughly evaluated all the popular professional surveying drones but only the WingtraOne offers the high data accuracy and usability that our customers request,” commented Layne Meylain from Sitech Louisiana.
“Sitech Louisiana is well known for their commitment to drones and their high product standards so we are very happy to have gained them as our distribution partner for Louisiana”, stated Justus Bamert, head of sales for the US at Wingtra.
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 sensors 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 Sony RX1RII and PPK system, WingtraOne reaches an accuracy down to 0.4 in without any ground control points.
Wingtra develops, produces and commercialises high-precision VTOL drones that collect survey-grade aerial data. Wingtra entered the market in early 2017 has raised an additional $5.8m (£4.3m) to meet the demand in 2018.
