Wingtra, the Swiss drone company that develops the first commercially successful VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone, has signed a reseller agreement with Global-trak Systems, an authorised Trimble distribution partner in Malaysia. "WingtraOne VTOL drone is an innovation that might be transforming the way industry professionals collect aerial data. We're truly excited to include it to our equipment portfolio" - commented Teik Khor, Managing Director at Global-trak Systems.
"We are very excited to announce that high-accuracy Wingtra VTOL drones will be available to industry professionals based in Malaysia through Global-trak Systems’ distribution network", stated Antonio Živolić, Sales Manager at Wingtra. WingtraOne takes-off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing aircraft. This technology eliminates the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry heavier and thus better sensors (e.g. 40MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas.
The new PPK (post process kinematics) upgrade allows the WingtraOne to reach new level of accuracy. With the highest quality sensors: the Sony RX1RII and state-of-the-art PPK system, WingtraOne reaches accuracy down to 1 cm without any ground control points.
Wingtra develops, produces and commercializes high precision VTOL drones that collect survey-grade aerial data. Wingtra entered the market in early 2017 and has been selling globally ever since. Recently the company has raised additional $5.8M to meet the demand in 2018 and partnered with biggest surveying, mining and precision agriculture equipment dealers across the globe.
