“Quantum-Systems is looking forward to working together with such a strong partner to serve the innovative Israeli market. Says Quantum-Systems CEO Florian Seibel.

Review Quantum-Systems @ Geoweek in Denver

Review Quantum-Systems @ Geoweek in Denver

Quantum-Systems first time at Geoweek, LIDAR Mapping Forum and ASPRS Meeting 25-31 January 2019 in Denver, with great success.

Professional LiDAR and photogrammetry solutions, in the professional environment are the focus in Denver. The perfect environment for the VTOL-UAV´s from Quantum-Systems.

For the first time Quantum-Systems presented the application possibilities of Tron and Trinity as carrier systems for the use of different sensors for land surveying and land reconnaissance in front of more than 5,000 lidar and photogrammetry experts at the fair in Denver.

There was great interest in the possibility of using the #TronUAV as the only eVTOL carrier system available on the market for a #LIDAR. “A nice and well-made solution…German craftmanship as it best…beautiful system…astonishing specs” were just a few of the quotes that reflect the positive interest in the Tron.

Johannes Krick from the German subsidiary of Quantum-Systems GmbH and the American distributor Dayle Hylton from Seattle agreed after the three days of the fair: “We will be there again next year. Trinity and Tron as systems that can fly more than 60 minutes with one battery charge have a great future in the North American market.

Great interest in Quantum Systems UAVs

The long flight time, the ability to take off and land in very narrow terrain due to the electric VTOL design and the robust construction as well as the complete system with the QBase mission planning software have few competitors in North America to fear.

There is already a great demand for the Trinity UAV, which is currently distributed by four resellers in the USA. With a new regulation of the BVLOS regulations by the FAA, the interest in the eVTOL UAV´s from Quantum-Systems will increase even further. See you in a year, then in Washington.”

Quantum-Systems supplies drone technology to inspect Deutsche Bahn’s infrastructure

Quantum-Systems supplies drone technology to inspect Deutsche Bahn’s infrastructure

In order to monitor BVLOS (Bejond visual line of sight) infrastructures, DB relies on drones from Quantum-Systems for the “Urban Air Mobility” project in Ingolstadt.

Ingolstadt strives to become one of the competence centers for drones and autonomous mobility in general. Thus the model project “Urban Air Mobility”, which is also supported by the EU Commission, was launched.

Deutsche Bahn is a partner in this project and has been using numerous drones in pilot projects since 2015 to test their suitability for inspection tasks. UAVs from Quantum-Systems were always present at these tests, such as the Tron 2016 in the picture above.

The Urban Air Mobility project now strengthens the will to continue research into the suitability of drone technology for monitoring infrastructures such as Deutsche Bahn’s rail network and to take advantage of the benefits for DB and (rail) customers.

This will make it possible to react much more quickly and cost-effectively to operational disruptions. The (cost) advantages of using drones are also obvious during routine inspections, for example of vegetation in the track area.

On January 17th The Minister of State for Digitisation Dorothee Bär, DB Board Member for Digitisation and Technology Prof. Dr. Sabina Jeschke and the Mayor of Ingolstadt Dr. Christian Lösel signed a declaration of intent. In model tests, the use of drones and flying taxis as well as the necessary framework conditions are to be investigated (second row right: Dr. Reinhard Brandl, CSU Member of Parliament for Ingolstadt constituency).

The drone in the foreground is the Trinity F9, which was newly introduced in 2018. Thanks to PPK for position determination, it is possible to make high-resolution image material available here at low cost for a wide range of evaluations.

The signing took place on the margins of a meeting of the “Innovation Council” of the Minister of State, which took place at the invitation of Sabina Jeschke at the DB headquarters in Berlin. The aim of the committee is to promote digitisation in Germany through close exchange between politicians, companies and start-ups.

Quantum-Systems is proud to provide its unmanned aerial expertise for this project.

For us the exchange with the involved parties is important to optimize processes and scenarios in the daily use of our UAV systems and to adjust them as well as possible to the requirements of the users and authorities.

PT Byte Geosolusi @ Quantum-Systems HQ

One of our first resellers, PT Byte Geo Solusi from Indonesia has visited us at the Quantum-Systems headquarters. Erwin Rommel and Yovist Taufan were informed at first-hand about the upcoming developments for 2019 by the Quantum Systems team.

The intensive exchange of ideas was a great benefit for both sides. Yovist Taufan: “I am pleased to have been here and had intensive discussions with all technicians, developers and the sales and support team”.

We would like to take this opportunity to pass on our thanks. For Quantum-Systems, professional work always means listening to the wishes and suggestions of our professional partners!

New reseller in South Korea

Ricky Chang, Managing Director of the Helsel Group and his colleague Se ho Kwon participated in an in-depth training at the QS headquarters in Gilching (one of our Demo Days). The two UAV experts were enthusiastic about the ease of use of the Trinity F9 and the possibilities of the control software QBase.

Ricky Chang: “I see a wide variety of uses for the Trinity F9 in Korea, and the system is a great addition to our product portfolio, and will undoubtedly attract many buyers in Korea!”

We are proud to welcome them to the Quantum Systems reseller family! Welcome!

 

The Trinity as part of the CopKa Project – BVLOS in action

The Trinity as part of the CopKa Project – BVLOS in action

Trinity as first on site to collect data

CopKa is a BMWI funded project exploring the possibility of accompanying rescue operations with live images. Providing faster and more comprehensive information to mission control centers and additional participants in the rescue chain is the main goal. The data connection is achieved via satellite.

In November 2018 the Trinity performed an 8km long BVLOS flight within the framework of a disaster control exercise north of Munich. It is particularly worth mentioning in this context that the flight took place in the no-fly zone of the Munich Airport beyond visual line of sight.

The flight path led across a high-voltage line, followed by a highway and railroads through the suburb of Munich. The target area was directly located at the approach corridor of the Munich airport. Airplanes have an altitude of 300m above ground in this area.

Extensive approvals were the prerequisite

Thanks to explicit approvals by the German federal aviation office the Trinity was permitted to perform the mission. Only this made it possible to fly during active flight operations at Munich airport. An ADS-B receiver connected to our mission planning software QBase is only one requirement necessary for operations such as these.

Based on this data, situation-dependent and highly up-to-date resource planning is possible.In addition, valuable time of the emergency forces can be saved.. This time saving can be decisive for the success of life-saving measures in the future.

Thanks to the collaboration with the “CopKa” project, the Trinity was able to successfully transmit the first visual data via live stream to the emergency line. Equipped with data and video link on board, the emergency forces were able to access a wide range of data.

The project was regarded as a success by all participants and promises a lot for the near future. With the further development of the UAV systems, the entry hurdle will be even lower and meaningful data will be available even faster.

Such lighthouse projects are important to increase the acceptance for the use of drones in the population. We as Quantum-Systems are pleased to be able to actively help here.

Thanks to all participants of the CopKa project!
