Microdrones mdLiDAR1000

Microdrones’ UAS (unmanned aerial system) solutions for mapping and surveying are now being offered to customers in Eastern Europe and Eastern Africa by Geozona, a Bulgaria-based company specializing in geospatial data solutions, precise positioning instruments, and geodetic measuring products for engineers and scientists.

Geozona will offer Microdrones Integrated Systems, which are complete UAS commercial mapping and surveying solutions consisting of a multirotor drone, specialised LiDAR sensor payloads, data processing modules adapted to the particular solution, and Microdrones’ proprietary mdCockpit mission planning and control software. The integrated LiDAR solutions, such as the mdLiDAR1000 aaS and mdLiDAR3000 aaS, will help feed the growing demand for drone LiDAR systems in markets such as surveying, construction and urban planning.

Peter Balkanski, Managing Director of Geozona, commented: “Microdrones has been on our watchlist for a while. When customers are looking for professional mapping tools the Microdrones brand has always been the first choice due to their high-quality hardware, advanced features, and modern software. With excellent LiDAR solutions and the recently announced Microdrones as a Service sales model, we know we found the right partner. Now with Microdrones products in our portfolio, we can offer comprehensive drone surveying solutions to our customers.”

Hanno Truter, the Microdrones sales representative for Africa, stated: “We are excited to welcome GEOZONA as a new distributor of Microdrones products because they are driven by customer satisfaction, rather than a need to sell product by sales segment or targets. They are able to recognize their customers’ requirements in both budget and technical qualities, which enables them to provide cost- effective solutions with Microdrones as a Service. We look forward to helping their customers achieve maximum productivity and to be a part of their success.”
