Atlas Dynamics, an aerospace company providing autonomous UAV solutions, fended off competition from global organisations to be hailed for its designs.
The European company has announced that its Atlas Pro drone has been named a 2018 Red Dot Award winner.
The Atlas Pro drone, developed fully in-house by Atlas Dynamics, serves professional commercial markets including security and reconnaissance, infrastructure inspection and emergency response. It provides a complete off-the-shelf UAV solution capable of fully and semi-autonomous VLOS and BVLOS drone operations.
Designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 products for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018.
The award , which dates back to 1955, determines the best products created each year. The judging panel, comprising approximately 40 independent experts, assessed each product individually. The judging criteria included overall level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability.
“We are very proud to be selected as a Red Dot winner for this year’s Product Design Award, recognizing the design innovation and superior capabilities of the Atlas Pro,” said Ivan Tolchinsky, CEO and founder of Atlas Dynamics.
“The Atlas Pro, comprising multiple proprietary components, is the culmination of intensive research and the development of individual parts utilizing Atlas Dynamics’ patented technology and aeronautical expertise. This award acknowledges, not just the product, but our unique vision and approach to development. We have brought together a dedicated team of experts committed to democratising complex aerospace technology, enabling us to create a truly superior product.”
