Where do you see the strengths for the products of Quantum-Systems as a service provider and what can customers expect from you?

We constantly collaborate with global vendors to provide the most up-to-date products that benefit our clients from both quality and cost perspective. As part of our expansion, we are looking to fill a gaps in our current survyeing solutions. We were looking for a tool which can do mass data collection similar to our mobile mapping units, but in an economical way and felt drones could fill this gap quickly. Going thru Quantum systems and solutions, we believed it would be right solution.

Why Quantum-Systems? Why did you choose our products?

The market was demanding a VTOL based drone for survey and mapping and the Quantum Systems Trinity F90+ is the best in the VTOL market today! The efficiency of the Trinity F90+ is particularly convincing when customers have larger areas to cover and the use of multi copters would mean an increased expenditure of time.

Series A Funding Rounds completed: Bayern Kapital invests in Quantum-Systems

Series A Funding Rounds completed: Bayern Kapital invests in Quantum-Systems

On course for growth: Bayern Kapital with the Bavarian Growth Fund 2 invests in Quantum-Systems

Quantum-Systems, innovative developer, designer, and producer of advanced eVTOL UAVs, together with Bayern Kapital and its Bavarian Growth Fund 2, renowned German private investors, and existing investors, as well as the European Investment Bank EIB has completed its Series A funding rounds with a total of 32 million USD equity and venture debt.

Quantum-Systems, founded in 2015, develops drones with a fixed-wing flight mode that enables long travel times, long ranges, and quiet flight. The drones are capable of vertical take-off and landing. The founders successfully registered a patent for a vertically launchable unmanned transition aircraft in 2012. After a short transition phase, the motors swing into a flight position and the drone flies like an airplane using aerodynamic and electrical efficiency. And it does so for up to 90 minutes – comparable models from other manufacturers do not achieve this flight time.

Increasing demand and growing areas of application

The drones serve a variety of use cases both in the defence and security sector, as well as for the geospatial industry. They can be used in search and rescue operations after natural disasters like floods. 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.

We are seeing a constantly growing interest in our unique UAV systems from governments as well as leading enterprises around the globe. They use our drones for applications like irrigation optimization in agriculture, progress monitoring in open pit mining, surveying work for large construction sites, real-time situational awareness and in Search and Rescue (SAR) scenarios. The Deutsche Bahn inspects their railway network with our automatically operated drones for instance after severe weather events. The Series A round will allow us to further scale our production and establish ourselves as the international standard in eVTOL UAVs by increasing investment in our development capabilities and sales team. We thank our investors and look forward to continuing successful collaboration.
Frank Thieser

CFO & CSO, Quantum-Systems

Quantum-Systems technology promises competitive advantages in areas like flight endurance, ease of operation, reliability, flying in windy conditions, 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.
Vertical take-off and landing drones have started to change how our customers operate their systems today. With the fresh capital, we will expand our research and development capacities in the areas of swarming, autonomous flight, and artificial intelligence. We will continue to lead this field.
Florian Seibel

CEO, Quantum-Systems GmbH

Tailwind for promising pioneers

“The Bavarian Growth Fund is an important instrument for strengthening the competitiveness of the Bavarian economy,” said Bavaria’s Minister of Economics Aiwanger. “This helps small and medium-sized enterprises to turn new ideas into concrete innovations. Young Bavarian high-tech companies in particular need capital to be able to compete in international growth markets. The young company can use the fresh funding to expand its research, development, and sales capacities in the fields of autonomous flying and artificial intelligence. Ultimately, Bavaria as a business location benefits from every development of new technologies.”

“Today, there is hardly an industry that is not thinking about the opportunities presented by the use of drones, and there are already plenty of successful customer examples,” said Monika Steger, Managing Director at Bayern Kapital. “Quantum-Systems convinces us equally with its powerful, efficient technology and its brilliant starting position for an international market with enormously high growth potential. We are delighted to have a Bavarian company with outstanding management that is helping to shape digitalization and the next stage of conquering airspace for the future.”

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!

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.
