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.

Quantum-Systems and Rocketmine enter into strategic partnership

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.

Use Case – Precise large scale terrain mapping under tropical rain forest with the Qube 240 LiDAR and Trinity F90+ UAV

Creation of a Digital Terrain Model using a LiDAR sensor in cooperation with Rocketmine

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.
