Protecting unique wilderness – Why Quantum-Systems teams up with Wilderness International to protect unique natural areas in Peru

Protecting unique wilderness – Why Quantum-Systems teams up with Wilderness International to protect unique natural areas in Peru

Gilching, 01.12.2021; Protecting unique wilderness areas for future generations is the goal of Wilderness International. Since 2008, Wilderness International managed to protect more than 5 million square meters of valuable and endangered rainforest by buying ecologically valuable wilderness areas in Canada and Peru. These are then entered in the land registry. Thus, the maximum durable legal protection is secured. The purchases are financed through donations. Wilderness sponsors can choose the areas they wish to protect and receive the exact geo-coordinates of the area protected.

To determine the exact location of this area and to track the use of the donation accurate georeferenced data and up-to-date, high-resolution photographs are a must but no easy task at all when you work in the dense rainforest. This is where Quantum-Systems supports this mission with equipment and technical expertise to capture aerial imagery with centimeter-level ground resolution in the areas that will be protected in the future, as well as to conduct additional aerial surveys with LIDAR and multispectral cameras.

Do you want to see what this is all about?

Achieve more together – How Quantum-Systems helps protecting unique wilderness

 

In June 2021, Quantum-Systems joined Wilderness International on an expedition in Peru to capture aerial imagery with an extremely high ground resolution of the areas recently put under protection.

By assigning exact geo-localized data to every square meter, it is made clear which piece of wilderness is protected with each donation. Orthomosaics, high-resolution aerial photographs, are created for this purpose.

The cooperation with Quantum-Systems saves the team from Wilderness International up to 150 h of work per 50 ha land area.

High-resolution aerial images create transparency

If an institution, company, or individual decides to protect a piece of wilderness, it was previously possible to select the respective area on a map with a ground resolution of approx. 3 meters per pixel. Thanks to the high-resolution sensors onboard the Trinity F90+ drone, the level of detail now increases to approx. 2 cm ground resolution.

The data quality creates the necessary transparency between provider and supporter and shall be the new standard for future protection projects. By having such a high ground resolution available, completely new possibilities for long-term observation emerge. For the respective supporter, the plus of information about the protected area is of additional value.

More data, also for science

In addition to a high-resolution RGB camera, additional data was also recorded using LIDAR, as well as the MicaSense Altum multispectral & thermal powerhouse to capture even more details about the areas to be protected.

MicaSense Altum RGB & multispectral / thermal Sensor

ALTUM Integrates a radiometric thermal camera with five high-resolution narrow bands, producing advanced thermal, multispectral, and high-resolution imagery in one flight for advanced analytics.

With the collected data it is an easy task to compare e.g. RGB data with a temperature map of the same area.

Qube 240 LiDAR Payload

Until recently, LiDAR payloads were hardly affordable for SMEs due to their high cost. This is exactly where Quantum-Systems and YellowScan come in and offer a geomatics grade LiDAR scanner integrated into the payload compartment of the Trinity F90+ drone including software package without having to compromise on data quality.

What is LiDAR?

LiDAR is an abbreviation for “Light Detection and Ranging”.
It is also called “laser scanning” or “3D scanning”. A LIDAR sensor emits pulses of laser light and measures the exact time it takes for these pulses to be reflected from the ground.

It also measures the intensity of that reflection LIDAR uses oscillating mirrors that emit laser pulses in many directions, creating an “arc” of light as the drone moves forward. By measuring the timing and intensity of the returning pulses, measurements of the terrain and points on the ground can be obtained.

Since it is not a passive-optical sensor, but an active sensor, the LIDAR flights in Peru could take place at night, while the RGB and multispectral images could be acquired during the day.

This is just the beginning

 

With the technical support of Quantum-Systems and the necessary tools in the form of fixed-wing UAVs and high-resolution sensors, Wilderness International can continuously map and survey its range of areas to be protected.

Thanks to time savings in the collection of data & provision of results, and at the same time higher depth of detail, transparency and efficiency increase in the presentation as well as in the communication with supporters.

The collected data is also made available to scientists for further analysis, for example to determine exact figures on the biomass or plant health status in each case.

Having highly detailed data is the only way to provide reliable information about the project region in the long term. This additional information is unique in this field so far.

Which drone does Quantum-Systems use in the projects with Wilderness International?

Quantum-Systems supported Wilderness International during this mission – and will for future ones – with equipment and technical expertise. The equipment is composed of the drone platform Trinity F90+ itself plus various cameras and sensors that are individually integrated into the drone and are easily exchangeable.

Every Trinity F90+ sold makes its contribution to protecting unique wilderness.
Quantum-Systems cooperation with Wilderness does not stop there but continues. As inhabitants of the earth, we consume nature every day and leave traces on the earth through our activities. According to the current state of science, this so-called ecological footprint can be measured most tangibly in terms of CO₂ equivalents. It can be compensated for by preserving intact natural areas. For example, the trees in the temperate rainforests of Canada and Peru are world champions in CO₂ sinking and sequestration.

We have not yet calculated the precise CO₂ footprint of our company, but nevertheless our company will assume responsibility for its consumption of nature from 2021. By protecting primary native forest in Peru together with the Wilderness International Foundation, we are offsetting part of our CO₂ footprint.

From December 2021 on, with the sale of each Trinity F90+ we protect and area of 64m² in the Peruvian rainforest and give back to nature.

An area of 64m² rain forest in Peru sequesters 3.84 t of CO2 in its biomass. This is equivalent to:

Projectors

Smartphones

Refrigerators

Vector UAS assists in securing the demolition of an apartment block

Vector UAS assists in securing the demolition of an apartment block

On September 5th, 2021 the second “White Giant” was blown up in Duisburg/Germany. The Duisburg Fire Department was charged with the task of safely carrying out the blasting of the 23-story building itself. They had to take direct action on the effects of the blast (dust generation) and monitor the danger zone to prevent spectators from harm.

As one of the first authorities in Germany, the Duisburg Fire Brigade, relies on Quantum-Systems drones to gather relevant data for situational awareness.

Planned demolitions of inner-city buildings are a logistical feat

The “White Giant” weighs 50,000 tons, is 63 meters high and 90 meters long. More than 1,700 residents were affected by the evacuation and had to leave their houses and apartments.

Securing the danger zone on the day of the blast places an enormous logistical demand on the local authorities. In addition, the supply of the affected citizens who had to leave surrounding apartments for safety and the necessary countermeasures at the moment of the blast such as reducing dust development was part of their task list. 

The vector UAS equipped with a thermal camera was used

To ensure no people were in the evacuation zone, a Quantum-Systems Vector including HD40 gimbal payload was deployed. This way, live monitoring of the entire area of operation and efficient observation was made easy.

What is the benefit of using a drone for aerial live monitoring during the day of the demolition?

The blasting itself had to be delayed for a few minutes because several residents were detected on the roof of an adjacent building close to the evacuation zone. Though in advance, the city had asked citizens not to make a “public viewing” out of the blast.

More than 200 spectators had gathered on-site, and were advised not to come because of the extensive barriers, the traffic situation, and the limited visibility of the blast object.

800 kilograms of explosives brought the building down

The manpower required for such a blast should not be underestimated. In addition to units of the Duisburg fire department, about 200 employees of municipal offices and police forces were deployed. Drones can be used flexibly and thus provide added value in order to save personnel or to gain more insight with less danger to all involved.

A payload with live video capabilities was used in this mission. Additional systems are being developed together with DLR as part of the LiveLage project since 2018.

The Duisburg Fire Department is part of the LiveLage project in cooperation with Quantum-Systems and DLR

Driven by requirements from emergency services, the desire arose to develop an optical system for fast, precise optical reconnaissance of large-scale damage and disaster situations that can be integrated into unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and provide this data in real-time. The LiveLage project was born:

The LiveLage Project in detail

The Security Research and Applications Department of the Institute of Optical Sensor Systems of the DLR is developing new technologies for the rapid reconnaissance of large-scale damage and disaster situations from the air. Current optical technologies are to be combined with the possibilities of new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) such as Vector and Scorpion to enable operational support for authorities and organizations with security tasks (BOS).

The Duisburg fire brigade is taking on the role of being able to prove the system’s operational capability under real conditions.

Operations like the one in Duisburg create confidence among the emergency services and the public. It also demonstrates the added value of these investments in people and equipment.

Both are important steps toward large-scale approval for public safety operations.

Joint Press Release: EIB supports Quantum-Systems with venture dept

Joint Press Release: EIB supports Quantum-Systems with venture dept

  • The EIB loan is part of the European Growth Finance Facility that offers startups an alternative to finding additional shareholders.
  • Quantum-Systems drones combine vertical take-off and landing-capabilities with long-range surveillance capabilities that can help governments in cases of natural catastrophes like the recent floods in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
  • Munich-based FCF Fox Corporate Finance supported Quantum-Systems as an advisor.

The European Investment Bank (EIB) and Quantum-Systems have concluded a loan agreement of up to €10 million to further develop capabilities in the areas of autonomous flight and artificial intelligence.

Quantum-Systems, founded in 2015, successfully developed drones with a wing flight mode that enables long travel times, long ranges and quiet flight by utilising electrical and aerodynamic efficiency. The drones are capable of vertical take-off and landing. The founders registered a patent for a vertically launchable unmanned transition aircraft in 2012.

The drones can be used in search and rescue operations after catastrophes like the recent floods in Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Further areas of applications are smart farming, volume calculation in open-pit mining, surveying work for large construction sites, real-time situational awareness, tactical mapping and automated railway inspection.

Quantum-Systems’ technology promises competitive advantages in areas like coverage, reliability, endurance, flights in windy conditions, high flight speed and autonomous flying abilities. The company targets the growing governmental market — where a limited number of companies based in the United States and Israel have historically provided systems — and the commercial market.

The EIB loan is part of the European Growth Finance Facility (EGFF), via which innovative startups can get a debt alternative to equity financing. The EIB thereby offers startups an alternative to finding additional shareholders and allows the founders to retain majority ownership. The programme is part of the European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI).

“We are proud of this unique funding product that met an urgent demand. Venture debt protects ownership, fuels growth and helps to bring new technologies to the market,” said EIB Vice-President Ambroise Fayolle, responsible for projects in Germany and engagements related to the environment, climate action and the circular economy. “If we want to support the market leaders of tomorrow, we need to take certain risks. We believe in the potential of the companies that we support and are committed to helping them grow by providing tailor-made financing.”

European Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, responsible for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth praised the European Union’s innovation programme, saying: “We are glad to enable new ideas to be turned into concrete innovations by big and small entrepreneurs, improving our collective prosperity. The EGFF is an essential instrument to foster the competitiveness of European economy.”

“With the fresh capital, we want to expand our research and development capacities in the areas of autonomous flight and artificial intelligence and drive the further vertical integration of system-critical components of the vertical take-off and landing drones,” said Florian Seibel, CEO and co-founder of Quantum Systems. “The funds are used to increase sales and marketing measures as well as the ramp-up of production and operations, supporting the company’s strong growth.” In 2020, Quantum Systems achieved a 155% increase in revenue compared to the previous year.

The advisors of FCF Fox Corporate Finance supported Quantum-Systems in its search for financing. “Especially for young and innovative companies, the EIB’s venture debt financing offers enormous advantages in financing growth measures such as R&D, sales, marketing or building-up working,” said FCF-Director Florian Theyermann. “One of the advantages of such an EIB loan is that, in contrast to a capital increase, the founder’s shares are not diluted.

Advanced training for DLR staff on Vector & Scorpion UAS as part of the LiveLage Project

Advanced training for DLR staff on Vector & Scorpion UAS as part of the LiveLage Project

At the beginning of July, within the framework of the already existing cooperation between Quantum-Systems and German Aerospace Center DLR, the LiveLage Project, selected DLR employees were given further training on our Vector & Scorpion UAV systems.

Driven by requirements from emergency services, the desire arose to develop an optical system for fast, precise optical reconnaissance of large-scale damage and disaster situations that can be integrated into unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and provide this data in real-time. The LiveLage project was born:

The LiveLage Project in detail

The Security Research and Applications Department of the Institute of Optical Sensor Systems of the DLR is developing new technologies for the rapid reconnaissance of large-scale damage and disaster situations from the air. Current optical technologies are to be combined with the possibilities of new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) such as Vector and Scorpion to enable operational support for authorities and organizations with security tasks (BOS).

Training for DLR staff on Vector & Scorpion UAS

Vector and Scorpion were selected as a carrier platform

The platforms will be used as carriers for a specially developed camera by the DLR, more specific the Institute for Optical Sensor Systems (OS). The Modular Aerial Camera System (MACS) will enable real-time tactical mapping. This development on the part of DLR runs hand in hand with the Helmholtz Innovation Lab OPTSAL, whose goal is the application-oriented testing of novel, optical technologies in combination with the UAS from Quantum-Systems.
The Optical Technologies for Situational Awareness Lab (OPTSAL) is a Helmholtz Innovation Lab at the DLR Institute for Optical Sensor Systems in Berlin/Germany.

The Duisburg fire brigade is the first fire brigade in Germany to test VTOL drones since 2018. It started with the Quantum-Systems Tron and now the Vector as a successor product.

Duisburg Fire Brigade is the first partner in Germany to test the system

The Duisburg fire brigade is taking on the role of being able to prove the system’s operational capability under real conditions. A Vector UAS will be used in combination with the MACS.

Particularly in the case of accident scenes that are difficult to reach from a traffic point of view, the overview of the situation gained in this way helps the emergency control team to coordinate the number of emergency forces, in addition to saving time through the image data transmitted via the real-time tactical mapping capabilities of the MACS.

Just recently, the special department for drone operations of the Duisburg fire brigade was our guest. Training with our Vector platform for scenarios like above was on the agenda.

Training for the UAV Team of the Duisburg Fire Brigade on Vector & Scorpion UAS

Real-time mapping is a key element for all project partners

Another cooperation partner is Drones4Good, in which DLR is involved with the setup of MACS and Quantum-Systems Vector.

Drones4Good is about the development of suitable AI methods for the rapid evaluation of MACS aerial images. For example, it should be possible to automatically detect people and damage to roads and buildings in real-time. DLR-OS employees have been part of the non-profit aid organization ISAR-Germany since 2016, and the Vector UAS and MACS are to be used to support relief efforts during international rescue missions after devastating natural disasters. There have been three joint missions so far: October 2017 in Mexico, October 2018 in Indonesia, August 2020 in Beirut

Working together as project partners to create something new

Cooperation between different institutions from the private sector, government, and research is essential to lay the groundwork for new products. The rapid development steps and willingness to take risks of the participating partners to achieve the best results as cost-effectively as possible in a short time favors agile companies like Quantum-Systems.

For example, the use of drones in disaster control and rescue operations is still in its infancy for all parties involved. There is also a need for new technology in the special and often time-critical scenarios, such as the real-time tactical mapping function of MACS. This is also the reason why the state government is interested in providing financial support and promoting the project.

As Quantum-Systems, we are proud of this partnership and hope to gain additional knowledge to further enable our UAV platforms for rescue operations!
