Quantum-Systems and Rocketmine enter into strategic partnership

Quantum-Systems GmbH and Africa’s leading drone services provider, Rocketmine, a member of Delta Drone International (DLTI) enter into strategic partnership to expand drone-based service offering across the continent and Australia 

 

Both market leading companies note an increasing demand for drones-based LiDAR solutions and partner to enable clients exploiting the full potential of this technology  

 

MUNICH, Germany, and JOHANNESBURG, South Africa— March 01, 2022 — Quantum-Systems, an innovative developer, and producer of advanced eVTOL UAVs officially announced today a strategic partnership with leading drones as-a-service provider, Rocketmine to meet the growing demand for actionable, aerial Light Ranging and Detection (LiDAR) data across the African continent and Australia.   

Having deployed the innovative technology solutions across multiple countries and projects over several years, Rocketmine’s expertise as a drone-technology leader and service to the African continent’s biggest companies is unsurpassed.  

The use of a LiDAR scanner as remote sensing method generates precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of the Earth and its surface characteristics. This kind of fast actionable data is crucial for mine operators when calculating stock volumes and for other measurements.  Historically, aerial LiDAR has been a technology that could only be deployed by manned aircraft such as helicopters or planes. 

Quantum-Systems introduced the Qube 240 LiDAR sensor in 2021, which has been transformative for the industry since, offering attractive applications for several operations. The Qube 240 produces survey grade results, weighs only 930g, and can be mounted on the Trinity F90+ eVTOL fixed-wing UAV.

As a technology agnostic company and being an early adopter at the same time, Rocketmine always deploys best in class technology and solutions for their clients’ missions in challenging and complex African environments. This strategy brought them together with Quantum-Systems, an innovation-driven company, pushing new technologies to market.  

Quantum-Systems joined Rocketmine on their RocketTechTour in September 2021 for extensive deployment of the Quantum-Systems portfolio. Over 24 days and 3,000 km of travel, 15 missions were completed, 14 flight hours conducted, and three different sensors deployed, including the Qube240 LiDAR sensor, and more than two (2) Terabytes of survey grade LiDAR data was captured.

The operations on the tech tour were successful, proving the usability, accuracy, and quality of Quantum-Systems products.   

As Camron Pfafferot, Rocketmine’s Head of Sales and Marketing says: “Rocketmine is currently backed by major multinationals in agriculture, mining, and security for leading aerial data services in Africa. Quantum-Systems brings increased capabilities to our existing service offering and is disrupting the manned LiDAR model through more agility, cost efficiency and versatility.  Through Rocketmine’s experience in South, East, West and North Africa, its global 4th ranking (Droneii), current and future clients are now in a position to benefit significantly from our long-range drone LiDAR turnkey offerings.”  

The successful testing period led to the conclusion of the global enterprise agreement, solidifying the relationship between both companies.

C3 class identification label for TrinityF90+

C3 class identification label for TrinityF90+

Trinity F90+ in the process of receiving C3 label soon

With the beginning of the year 2023, the transition period for unclassified UAVs as per (EU) 2019/945 ends. Consequently, UAVs are only allowed to be operated with a class identification label being attached.

The Trinity F90+ falls under the class C3 for unmanned aircraft systems. Quantum-Systems is working with Spanish Alter Technology Group (TÜV Nord) to receive the class C3 label for Trinity F90+, ensuring compliance with the requirements of that class. The extensive test procedures are scheduled to launch in the beginning of March with the hand-over of a serial UAV in the facilities of the first notified body in Europe and accredited test lab, which is Alter Technology Group.

In case all parties involved will be able to keep the time schedule, the Trinity F90+ will be one of the first officially C3 labelled drones in the European market. The classification efforts will then be completed months before the end of the EU’s transition period. Not only is the classification a legal requirement but also an independent proof of the system safety level and the advanced flight performance of the Trinity platform,” says Tim Ganzer, Certification Manager at Quantum-Systems.

All Trinity F90+ models equipped with the current hardware and software revision will be eligible of a retrofittable identification label.

Further time slots for Quantum-Systems Vector and Scorpion UAV, CE certifications for future product versions, as well as IP53 certification are already planned at the notfied body for the second half of the year.

Alter Technology Group is based in Madrid, Spain, and part of the TÜV Nord Group and accredited notified body of the EASA for drone classification and CE declarations.

C3 Class Identification Label

As a class C3 UAV Trinity F90+ shall have a direct remote identification.
This is not only a requirement by the EASA, but also part of the FAA requirements for operating UAVs in the United States.

Since January 1st, 2022, all Trinity F90+ drones are already equipped with a Remote ID module integrated into the payload. Later this year, the Trinity F90+ will be shipped as a standard Remote ID drone to all customers all over the world, with the Remote ID module implemented in the main body.

Trinity F90+ is C3 ready.
