Mining and surveying professionals are turning to fixed-wing vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drones in order to cover larger areas of land in a single long-range flight. We want to support the growing demand for fixed wing VTOL drones and become a single, go-to vendor for our customers, so that’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ve entered into a distribution partnership with Wingtra, manufacturer of the WingtraOne VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone.
As part of this partnership, 3DR endorses the WingtraOne—which can take off in an area as small as 2×2 meters and has a flight range up to 50 kilometers—as the preferred fixed-wing drone solution for the Site Scan platform. 3DR and Wingtra will distribute this complementary solution across a range of industries, particularly to mining and surveying teams. We’ll sell Wingtra products through their existing distribution partnerships across the U.S., E.U., and Australia, and Wingtra will sell Site Scan worldwide.
You can easily upload your photos collected from the WingtraOne into the Site Scan cloud-based web application, and process them into high-resolution maps and 3D models. Site Scan users—which includes leading mining firms across the world such as Newmont, Newcrest, and Gerdau—can then analyze their drone-captured data with a suite of measurement tools, securely share them with teammates and stakeholders, and export data for use in CAD, mine planning and geological software.
“Our partnership with 3DR lets our customers analyze high precision aerial data directly in Site Scan–in a lot of cases, without any additional tools. Together, WingtraOne and Site Scan make up a complete solution and we are very excited to offer this bundle to the industry.”Basil Weibel, Founder & CRO, Wingtra
