India’s elite surveying organization Survey of India awards India’s first survey grade hybrid UAV Trinity+ order to India’s oldest surveying instrument company API-Roter Group partnered with Quantum-Systems GmbH Germany.

This cooperation is innovative for the Indian market as the drone market is tightly regulated and several requirements for professional use have to be met.

Survey of India” takes a leadership role in providing user focused, cost effective, reliable and quality geospatial data, information and intelligence for meeting the needs of national security, sustainable national development, and new information markets. As a technology, drones are of the highest interest in all these areas and promise an increase in data quality, timeliness and at the same time cost savings in the survey.

India takes this development seriously and will be a worldwide example for the sustainable use of drones in large scale mapping. Very soon Indian sky will be seeing a lot of Quantum-Systems’ Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) compliant Trinity+ UAVs flying.

Trinity+ prevails against the competition

In order to find the best system in the market for this application, a call for tenders was launched in 2018 to compete different systems against each other. The catalogue of requirements comprised numerous disciplines, some of which were specified by the state and others by the customer.

In a tightly scrutinized demonstration of the drones of 11 participating companies, Trinity+’s outshone the competition in performance, data quality and compliance to the regulations. Quantum-Systems GmbH and its Indian partner Ansari Precision Instruments are proud to have won the tender in the aggressive competition.

Trinity+ as a product is a superb example of Indo-German cooperation and a testament to German engineering and Indian skill and productivity. The drones are specially configured for the customer’s needs and equipped with additional features. Built under of the “Make in India” initiative the systems include state of the art integration of PPK system, navigation lights, GSM tracking and an unmatched flight time.

The UAVs are equipped with ADS-B technology by uaVionix for Detect and Avoid (DAA) functionality as well as for airspace awareness and Air Traffic Control (ATC) compatibility.  It allows the Trinity+ to respond to Mode S radar interrogations by ATC and Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS).The flight control is compatible with the DGCA’s No Permission No Takeoff (NPNT) to implement secure flying of drones in India.

India is at the forefront in the use of UAVs

India is making great efforts to play a pioneering role in the promising fast-growing field of drone technology. Thus, the legal and structural framework conditions are currently being created to make the potential value of the technology truly usable and to offer the public direct added value.

In the future, drones will be used for mapping and producing geographical maps and aerial photographs. Deployments in large cities are also conceivable (cadastral surveying).

The resulting data sets are of great interest to all parties active in the region, as they can be used for spatial planning and development. Big Data applications in particular will enable completely new approaches to spatial development issues in the future.

The Trinity+ UAVs will be deployed in three states with the aim of flying throughout India. The delivery of the first order is expected to be completed by the end of this month.

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.”

Enhanced eVTOL UAV Trinity F9 with PPK and new software features now available!

Enhanced eVTOL UAV Trinity F9 with PPK and new software features now available!

Quantum-Systems GmbH, a German-based eVTOL fixed-wing UAV company founded in 2015 and currently present at the market with its Trinity and TRON UAV systems, just announced the enhanced version of the Trinity –  the Trinity F9. With the PPK module leading the way in the newly announced enhancements, the user now enjoys more accuracy, reliability and flight safety when choosing a Quantum-Systems Trinity F9. Comprehensive and state-of-the-art features are available on both sides, hardware and software.

Official presentation at the INTERGEO 2018 in Frankfurt

On the hardware side the following features are released:

PPK mit iBase (PPK Base Station) for best-in-class accuracy
For all surveyors and professionals that require highly accurate data down to a few centimeters, the new Trinity F9 enables them to reduce typical GNSS geotagging errors of several meters down to 2 – 5 cm via auxiliary GNSS data collection in flight. The new PPK module comes with an additional PPK base station, called iBase, for reliable reference data in an instant. Thanks to a strong cooperation between uBlox and Quantum-Systems, massively increased data accuracy at dramatically reduced costs is now possible with the new Trinity F9.

Anti-collision lights for high flight safety
Next to the PPK module, the new Trinity F9 has integrated flashing anti-collision strobe and position lights to provide even more flight safety to its UAV pilots.  

Live air traffic in QBase for advanced operational awareness
The flight safety is further increased by the automatic integration of the live air traffic info into QBase. With the help of the pingUSB from uAvionix, the UAV pilot now receives high-quality tracking data from other aircrafts around him to increase its operational awareness significantly.

With regard to our mission planning software QBase there are these new features:

As if this wouldn’t be enough of enhancements for the Trinity F9, we have also amplified the scope of QBase, our ground control station. From now on, the existing as well as new users of Quantum-Systems UAVs can take advantage of the following new QBase features:

3D Planning for the most realistic mission planning
Powered by Esri, the 3D planning feature provides the automatic creation of flight plans in sloped and mountainous areas. It uses high resolution digital elevation data (e.g. SRTM) to create collision free and energy optimized trajectory for an optimal data quality results.

Resume mission for higher efficiency
A large photogrammetry mission can’t be covered in a single flight can now be resumed just at the position of the last covered flight leg. QBase automatically calculates the follow-up flight plan allowing an immediate continuation of the remaining mission without the need of the further manual planning steps.

Corridor planning that fits all infrastructures
The corridor planning function creates optimized flight plans for mapping infrastructures like roads, railways and power plans. It optimizes the flight segments according to the terrain altitude as well as the camera characteristics.

The new Trinity F9 is available now to all existing resellers, end users and potential customers through our current distribution network. The delivery happens at a first-come-first-serve basis as the demand is currently unexpectedly high. The Trinity F9 comes at an unmatched retail price of 12,900 EUR (excl. VAT).

“With the launch of the Trinity back in 2015, we could continuously manifest to our user base that they can rely on a high-endurance and long-range UAV with an open source payload concept.” Florian Seibel, CEO of Quantum-Systems points out. “With its price-performance ratio and the state-of-the-art enhancements, the Trinity F9 definitely has the potential to be a game changer in the the eVTOL fixed-wing UAV market in the near future. We’re excited to see our users’ feedback on our Trinity F9 and how we can move from there to leverage it to the next level.”
