About Quantum-Systems

Transforming decision making through aerial data intelligence.

Our mission at Quantum-Systems is to transform decision-making processes
for professionals through aerial data intelligence.


Whether for precision agriculture, pit mining or the structural construction industry  – our long-range, automatic transition aircrafts capture and deliver data from above for enhanced and sustainable decision making. To fulfill this mission, we put great importance to the perfect interaction between hard- and software of our UAS. All components are developed 100% in-house in Germany.
This includes the hardware, the autopilot, as well as our QBase 3D Mission Planning and Control Software plus our own Ground Control Station. QBase 3D is perfectly tailored to our Trinity™, Vector™ and Scorpion™ UAS, making daily operation for the user as easy and intuitive as possible. No matter what the use case is.

Our eVTOL UAS can be equipped with various professional sensors for a broad variety of applications. QBase 3D makes it easy to plan, survey and record each mission. The images taken can be easily imported into any commonly used software tool for post-processing. Quantum-Systems drones are generally software and supplier independent. This way we give our customers the flexibility to choose the software they prefer and configure a solution that fits their individual needs for enhanced decision-making.

We love what we do.

More than 40% of our colleagues are licensed pilots (planes, copters, paragliders, gliders, etc.) and are passionate for flying. Our engineers are driven by the idea of contributing to shape the future of autonomous aviation.

We are professionals.

The Quantum-Systems staff is composed of innovative and passionate professionals striving for excellence. What drives each individual team member forward is idea of bringing technological innovation to our unmanned aircraft systems for the professional user.

We are agile and responsive.

Flat hierarchies and short decision-making paths allow us to respond quickly to customer requests. We observe the market, listen to our customers, and react quickly to new needs. It is our goal to remain agile, responsive, and flexible in everything that we do.

Discover our eVTOL innovation

A drone is a drone? It’s not that simple.


The Quantum-Systems eVTOL fixed-wing sUAS unite the convenient handling of a multi-rotor drone and the efficient aerodynamics of an airplane into one system – making them unique.  

“Automatic transition aircraft” is how Quantum-Systems calls this innovative and patented category of dronesAfter the vertical take-off and reaching the desired flight altitude, the drone has a short phase of transition. During this transition phase, the rotors, driven by electric motors, swivel from the vertical take-off position to a horizontal flight position. The patent for this innovative swivel mechanism and the unique transition technology was granted in 2012. 

Our sUAS fly as efficiently as a fixed-wing airplanbut allow for the easy vertical take-off and landing like a multi-rotor drone. No runway and no extra equipment are needed for take-off or landingThey land smoothly and controlled on their shock absorbing landing gear. This means reduced harm on the sUAS and sensors for an extended product life. 

All our systems are designedengineered and manufactured in Germany. We operate out of our Headquarter in Gilching, close to Munich 

The Management Team and Founders of Quantum-Systems GmbH

By means of the founding team’s diversity, Quantum-Systems manages to combine extensive experience and expertise from all relevant areas of unmanned aerial systems.

The visionary and initiator Florian Seibel formed the core team around him in 2011, consisting of Dr. Michael Wohlfahrt and Dr. Michael Kriegel. The core team of the founders got to know each other during their PhD work at the Chair of Flight Systems Dynamics at the University of the German Armed Forces in Munich. As early as 2012, they registered the patent for a vertically launchable unmanned transition aircraft under the patent number DE201210104783. A short time later, Tobias Kloss and Armin Busse joined the team. After the foundation of Quantum-Systems GmbH in January 2015 the turnover and the number of employees grew continuously to 80+ people.

The Quantum-Systems Family

Florian Seibel, Dipl.-Ing., Co-Founder & CEO

Florian Seibel is visionary, initiator and CEO of Quantum-Systems. Florian was an officer in the German Armed Forces from 1999 to 2016 and graduated as an aerospace engineer at the University of the German Armed Forces Munich (UniBwM).

After his employment as a helicopter pilot in Germany and abroad, he joined the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the UniBwM as a research assistant in 2010 working on his PhD. His main fields of activity included the development and operation of different carrier platforms based on multi-copters and fixed-wing UAVs. He never finished his PhD but decided to found Quantum-Systems instead.


Florian is a passionate glider pilot, flight instructor, paraglider, and helicopter pilot. In his spare time, he developed performance-optimized RC competition gliders, which have achieved many international successes in recent years. Not having to spend seven days a week with “things flying” anymore, he recently started to play golf. He is the driving force behind his company loving to challenge his engineers daily.

His vision is to form the European Drone Champion in the VTOL segment

Armin Busse, Dipl.-Ing, MBA, Co-Founder & CFO

Armin Busse studied mechanical engineering at the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Munich and was an officer in the German Federal Armed Forces from 2002 to 2014. In this period Armin gathered many years of experience with comprehensive personnel responsibility. During his last years of service, he completed an Executive MBA in International Management.


After his active service in the German Armed Forces he held the position of a quality engineer and process manager in the automotive supplier industry. As second managing director of Quantum-Systems he is mainly responsible for all operational and administrative matters in the company.

“Since autonomous electric unmanned aviation beyond the operator’s visual line of sight is still in its infancy at the moment, we do indeed feel like aviation pioneers like Otto Lilienthal, Gustav Weißkopf or Alois Wolfmüller in their time,” explains Armin the current strategic positioning of Quantum-Systems.

Armin lives with his wife and two children in Landsberg. The only thing he is currently missing is more time for his personal fitness.
