DENVER, CO – June 14, 2022 – Propeller Aero, the drone data visualization and analytics platform, and Quantum-Systems, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems developer, today announced their joint effort to include compatibility of Propeller’s site surveying and 3D mapping software with Quantum-Systems’ Trinity F90+ drone.
Propeller’s Post-Processed Kinematic solution (PPK) enables seamless surveying and 3D mapping of worksites across the construction, mining and earthworks industries. Coupled with Quantum-Systems’ Trinity F90+ drone, a dedicated large scale mapping drone, contractors will be able to improve survey accuracy, condense their traditionally weeks-long data collection process into a few hours, and quickly share digital models among their broader worksite teams.
Designed and manufactured in Germany, the Trinity F90+ drone builds on Quantum-Systems’ previous F9 model and makes electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft accessible to customers at an affordable price point without compromising technical quality or usability. Additionally, the Trinity F90+ drone can fly for up to 90 minutes – well beyond the industry standard of 60 minutes – allowing earthworks professionals to survey larger worksites more efficiently, and it comes with the broadest choice of integrated sensors in the industry.
To use the combined solution, surveyors place Propeller AeroPoints™ (smart ground control points) around the worksite, fly the Trinity F90+ drone above to collect survey data and upload that data to Propeller’s cloud-based platform where it is processed and available to use within 24 hours.
Clients will now have the ability to purchase the complete solution of Trimble Stratus and Quantum- Systems Trinity F90+ through Propeller’s channel partnership with Trimble®, the global leader in positioning technologies, and through participating SITECH® distributors.
The drone industry has progressed a lot over the last couple of years, along with customer
expectations. It is no longerreasonable to have customers figure out a complete solution
for their needs. As a technology company,we listen to our customers and understand their
needs and how best to address them. With the fullTrimble Stratus solution completed with
Trinity F90+, customers can proactively finish their projects from end to end.
Today’s contractors and surveyors are eager to adopt new technologies that modernize workflows and
allow them to analyze more aspects of their worksite than ever before. The clients we work with are
doing cutting-edge work in the construction,earthworks, and mining space and are already using
drone technology to accelerate project timelines,reduce costly rework, and create safer environments
for their employees. Our new partnership withQuantum-Systems gives our customers in Europe and
around the world even more ways to achieve thisincreased efficiency and accuracy with the highly
advanced F90+ drone.
