FairFleet and Quantum-Systems partner to boost professional drone solutions.

FairFleet and Quantum-Systems partner to boost professional drone solutions.

FairFleet and Quantum-Systems, leading manufacturer of VTOL drone systems, recently signed a partnership agreement to increase the usage of VTOL systems within the global FairFleet pilot network, to meet the increased client needs.

With Quantum-Systems’ VTOL drone Trinity F90+ and FairFleet processing capabilities as joined force a complete aerial surveying solution can be offered — highly efficient aerial data collection, to postprocessing and analysis.

Through this exciting partnership, FairFleet now endorses Quantum-Systems’ Trinity F90+ as the preferred fixed-wing drone for large-scale projects where conventional copter UAVs lack the required endurance to perform the job efficiently.

Customers with large projects in real estate management, insurance or industrial inspections, will now be able to rely on over 3000 certified FairFleet pilots who will have better access to the Trinity F90+ as the right tool to efficiently and safely capture the necessary data.

The agreement includes a commitment of Quantum-Systems to offer complete drone mapping kits for registered FairFleet pilots. FairFleet will encourage professional pilots globally to the preferred use of Quantum-System hardware. In addition, FairFleet will support Quantum in the further development of hardware and equipment directly from the field. Direct feedback from FairFleet pilots will lead to even more efficient hardware and software solutions. A win-win situation for Quantum-Systems, FairFleet and the drone economy.

FairFleet will offer Quantum-Systems products through their existing pilot database

We’re thrilled to officially partner with Quantum-Systems and make a fixed-wing VTOL drone available to our pilot base. We’re looking forward to deepening this partnership and continue to develop industry solutions for our clients, making professional drone services and data analysis even more accessible for everyone! The entire drone economy will benefit from this great partnership between a leading hardware manufacturer and a leading solution provider.

Alexander Engelfried

Co-founder & Managing Director, FairFleet

The partnership with FairFleet enables thousands of pilots worldwide to use our products and learn about the advantages they offer. We are sure that we can contribute to more efficient use of drone technology in many projects. Together, Quantum-Systems and FairFleet can offer a complete ecosystem of hardware, software and services and we are very excited to see the results of this cooperation.

Florian Seibel

CEO, Quantum-Systems GmbH

In response to the growing demand for VTOL fixed-wing combined technology, FairFleet chose Quantum-Systems as a partner, due to many of its outstanding features, including proven results, ease of use and longevity. VTOL technology offers the unique ability to fly as efficiently as a fixed-wing airplane but 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 landing. This means reduced harm to the sUAS and sensors for an extended product life as well as maximum safety for the pilot/operator.

FairFleet will support Quantum-Systems in the development and in field testing of new hardware, systems, or flight patterns. The great experience of more than 10,000 flights in the past years will provide great value to the product development team at Quantum-Systems and to find innovative solutions to client requirements around the globe.

Reseller Spotlight – Duncan Parnell

Reseller Spotlight – Duncan Parnell

​Today we would like to introduce Duncan Parnell Inc. as our new reseller in the USA with 16 offices from Florida to Virginia. Welcome to Reseller Spotlight!

With over 76 years of experience and expertise, customers in the surveying, engineering, mapping, and construction industries will be serviced and provided with Quantum-Systems products and services.

Can you tell us about the history and background of your company?

Not many businesses reach the 76-year mark, and even fewer family-owned businesses do. So, to say we’re honored to reach this milestone is a major understatement.

In 1946 Duncan-Parnell was founded by World War II vet, Charlie Duncan, as a blueprint and drafting supplier in Charlotte, NC. Over the past 76 years Duncan-Parnell has risen to become a trusted supplier to construction contractors, engineers, surveyors, architects and designers. The evolution of our business and ability to adapt and diversify is why we’ve been able to survive the trials and tribulations of the past 76 years. We’ve sustained ourselves through multiple recessions and we’re grateful to continue navigating the ever-changing landscape caused by a global pandemic.

At Duncan Parnell, we look for capabilities and services with outstanding features for our customers. We chose Quantum systems because it is currently the only light, fixed wing VTOL UAS that has an integrated LIDAR payload.
We are excited to see what projects we can support with this product for our customers!

Miles Kelly

UAS Business Development, Duncan Parnell Inc.

Not only has Duncan-Parnell’s product and service offerings expanded over the years, but our team has too. Three generations later, our current President and CEO Mark Duncan continues to run Duncan-Parnell following the principals we were founded on and our team has grown to over 160 employees. We’ve also since expanded to 16 different branch locations, ranging all the way from Florida to Virginia!

Our growth over the past 76 years has allowed us to better reach and serve customers throughout the Southeast and we couldn’t be more honored to reach this milestone.
