Microdrones Welcomes MODUS as a new Distributor and Government Sales Specialist

Rome, NY –MODUS, (Mapping Operations and Data Unmanned Solutions) a logistic automation and geo-spatial intelligence innovation company, joined the network of distributors for Microdrones in the US Southwest Region and as a US government sales specialist. They offer solutions to reduce the cost of transporting sensors and cargo while providing business growth opportunities with increased business intelligence.
MODUS is also a premier drone LiDAR and mapping solutions company now offering Microdrones Integrated Systems – complete mapping solutions composed of Survey Equipment and Data Processing modules fully adapted to that Survey Equipment. It includes the drone, the payload, and Microdrones proprietary mdCockpit mission planning and control software.
“The Microdrones product line, streamlined workflows, and interchangeable sensors will dramatically simplify our enterprise drone fleet management and fieldwork standardization,” says Dan Hubert, CEO, and Founder of Modus. “Our customers won’t have to guess which drone, sensor, or processing software they need. Microdrone takes care of this in one neat, business-friendly package.”
Over the past 5 years, MODUS has partnered with government agencies, research institutions, and leading manufactures to test and verify the accuracy and market viability of many of the UAV systems on the market today. Their research is helping government and large companies to build standards and develop contracts with small businesses to take advantage of the current drone mapping technology.
“Our specialty is working with traditional AEC and Engineering companies with little-to-no drone or GIS experience and helping them adopt digital drone data decisional processes,” said Hubert. “We are unique that we have over 12 top-level Geospatial data scientists and instructors, all with over 20 years’ experience working at the national level, who understand drones, data science, and remote sensing technologies and how to commercialize them.”
Aaron Beach, the Northwest regional manager for Microdrones, helped facilitate the partnership between the two companies. “We have a great opportunity for a mutually beneficial relationship between MODUS and Microdrones,” Beach explains. “Their staff has the experience and know-how to help clients identify business opportunities and smartly integrate drones into existing enterprise workflows.
Hubert adds, “We can remove the frustration and guess-work they’ve experienced with other drone manufacturers by offering a fully integrated UAV mapping system. Especially, now that Microdrones offers affordable renting and leasing programs. This means we can enable new customers to leverage the  drone technology to scale their business while efficiently managing their cashflow.”


MODUS products help clients learn how to integrate drone technology and increase return on investment.
To achieve this, MODUS fuses its expertise in drones, geo-spatial sensors, business analysis, digital workflow design, geographic information visualization, and learning systems into a cohesive product.  MODUS is the world’s most customer-centric company, where businesses can affordably collect, analyze, and execute smart scaleable business decisions to solve challenging problems.
