We are glad to welcome a new commercial drone supplier in Delair’s global, open ecosystem of partners. The partnership will combine Quantums’ VTOL UAVs and Delair’s hardware-agnostic analytics solution to empower aerial data programs in mining, aggregates, surveying and mapping, power and utilities.
At the Esri User Conference 2019, Delair and Quantum-Systems GmbH, a specialist in the development and production of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) fixed-wing drones, will present their collaboration to offer a complete integrated, easy-to-use workflow to answer the needs of specific industries and use cases in mining, aggregates, construction, and power and utilities. This partnership is made possible by a shared mission of our teams to equip end users – geospatial specialists and site managers – with the most optimal tools to support their aerial intelligence strategy.
New combination of UAV hardware and software platform for data analytics
The partnership associates the data collection capabilities of the Quantum-Systems’ UAVs especially when take-off and landing must occur in challenging, small or confined environments, with the imagery analysis, cloud computing and machine learning technologies available on the Delair Aerial Intelligence (delair.ai) cloud platform.
For enterprises who rely on aerial data to support their core business, they face a real challenge ensuring this data can be leveraged across different teams. The Delair.ai solution is designed to turn data from digital twins into actionable business insights, thanks to enterprise-focused workflows and powerful industry-specific analytics.
Benjamin Michel, Chief Product Officer at Delair: “We have designed delair.ai to be compatible with any drone-based data in order to enable our customers to deploy fully automated and cloud-connected commercial drone operations at scale. We are really pleased about having Quantums’ solutions as a part of our ecosystem since they are a leading provider of electric VTOL drones, a technology that is a great fit for some of our customers in the mining, construction or utilities markets.”
The Quantum-Systems UAVs are perfectly integrated to delair.ai, capturing highly accurate aerial data that will be turned into consumable, shareable, and actionable insights on delair.ai. The workflow is fully automated and user-friendly, to rapidly and repeatedly analyze comprehensive imagery of an unlimited number of sites, thus saving time and reducing the global operating costs of a drone operation.
Florian Seibel, Chief Executive Officer at Quantum-Systems: “Delair is recognized as the pre-eminent supplier of enterprise-class software solutions for the UAV industry. Their hardware-agnostic cloud solution is probably the industry’s most powerful platform to manage, analyze and share aerial data. By providing an integrated workflow between two cutting-edge systems, the collaboration creates a full lifecycle solution, and illustrates how strategic partnerships can help meet customer demand and accelerate time to market in a competitive high-tech market.”
In the near future, the Quantum-Systems UAV portfolio will be available through Delair’s international reseller network. In a first stage, delair.ai will be offered as a software solution with every Quantum-Systems UAV.
Subsequently, hard- and software will also be available from both Delair and Quantum-Systems to extend the reach of our dealer network on both sides. In case of support customers worldwide can rely on fast and straightforward help.
Creating a global, open commercial drone ecosystem to answer customer needs
Since day one, Delair has offered both hardware and software solutions to customers in a wide array of industries. Envisioning a more mature commercial drone market where there is a real opportunity to answer quickly and efficiently to specific customer needs, Delair is partnering with leading industry players who are also committed to moving fast and solving real problems that customers face. That means really understanding what these customers do today and presenting them solutions that help them save time and money while increasing safety.
The team at Quantum-Systems shares Delair’s vision to federate this global community of drone technology suppliers in order to accelerate the global market.
“The drone ecosystem has a lot of talented players today, and likewise there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to the diversity of use cases requiring drone solutions. Building an open ecosystem of competent partners will allow Delair to provide the right products to our customers, ultimately giving them the required business insights needed to succeed,” adds Benjamin Michel at Delair.
We are really excited to onboard Quantum-Systems in our community of passionate drone suppliers. We look forward to offering our combined products to the market along with joining forces with like-minded drone vendors.
