“We’re thrilled to officially partner with Wingtra and make a fixed-wing VTOL drone available to our customer base,” said Chris Anderson, 3DR CEO. “We’re looking forward to deepening this partnership and continue making Site Scan and Wingtra the go-to drone solutions for mining teams across the world.”
Mining and surveying professionals are turning to fixed-wing vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drones, because of their unique ability to take off and land vertically as a multicopter but fly as fast a fixed wing. WingtraOne is a leading example of this, offering safer, more dynamic launch and land, unmatched resolution and broad coverage in a single flight. In response to the growing demand for VTOL fixed-wing combined technology, 3DR chose Wingtra as a partner, due to many of its outstanding features, including proven results with absolute accuracy down to 1 cm (0.4 in).
You can easily upload photos collected with the WingtraOne into the Site Scan cloud-based web application to process them into high-resolution maps and 3D models. Site Scan users include leading mining firms around the world, such as Newmont, Newcrest, and Gerdau. They turn to this robust software as an all-in-one solution where they can analyze their drone-captured data with a suite of measurement tools, securely share them with teammates and stakeholders, and export them for use in CAD, mine planning and geological software.
