Following the sale of its Gatewing UAS business, Trimble has entered into strategic alliances with Delair-Tech and microdrones of Siegen, Germany. Under the agreements, Delair-Tech and microdrones will become preferred providers of both fixed-wing and multirotor UAS solutions, with Trimble providing software, data processing and deliverables to UAS operators in the construction, agriculture, transport, geomatics and energy sectors.
“Trimble chose to partner with Delair-Tech and microdrones to strengthen our UAS portfolio,” said Bisio. “Working together, Delair-Tech and microdrones will deliver industry-leading UAS platforms and Trimble will focus on core software technology for UAS that integrates positioning, remote sensing and photogrammetry. The end goal is to deliver a complete solution to transform work processes and efficiency for our customers.”
“microdrones complement the Delair-Tech fixed-wing lineup with one of the most resilient and stable Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft on the market today. This provides a complete product line of tightly integrated solutions for mapping,” said microdrone’s president, Vivien Heriard Dubreuil. “We’re excited to support Trimble distributors to enable a one-stop shop for UAS mapping solutions and to enable their global customers to produce exceptional results on every job.”

“We are proud that Trimble selected us to be their fixed-wing UAS solution provider. With the addition of Gatewing to our portfolio, we can provide one of the most innovative and extensive portfolios of long-range, fixed-wing commercial UAS solutions to support Trimble and its distributors,” said Michael Delagarde, CEO of Delair-Tech. “The portfolio will continue to provide dedicated end-to-end solutions, from hardware to fully processed aerial data, which can then be turned into actionable business intelligence.”
