MULTIROTOR service-drone Market-Leading Developments in May 2014

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - MULTIROTOR service-drone extends its market lead at the upper end of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) technology with fully redundant flight control option and aerial geo-survey with 1 mm ground resolution and accuracy of 4-6 mm.

MULTIROTOR's capabilities announced in May represent unique and innovative features that again demonstrate its continued market leadership for civilian applications of UAS.

Until now, redundant layout of all critical flight components was limited to manned aircraft. Today, MULTIROTOR by service-drone redefines operational safety at a new level as the first manufacturer of small UAS (sUAS) to introduce a fully redundant flight control system that independently operates in parallel alongside many other redundant components of its industrial-grade octo-copters. This sets an industry-first major milestone with respect to UAS flight safety.

Not only does the aircraft achieve a high margin of safety to avoid a crash in case of technical failure, but this also defines a new level of demand on safe operation of sUAS. "Austria is the first country in the world that as of the beginning of this year mandates full redundancy in order to authorize certain commercial operations," declares Bernd Lutz, CEO of service-drone USA. "We assume that it won't take long until other countries will follow this example -- with the FAA presumably not too far behind."

Among other innovations, MULTIROTOR by service-drone demonstrated and proved superior accuracy of near-range geographic aerial surveys. Its off-the-shelf MULTIROTOR G4 4.8 GeoCopter achieved previously unimaginable results that up to now could only be obtained with traditional tachymeter measurements at much greater effort and expense. The GeoCopter delivered ortho-photos, DEM, and 3D models at unprecedented ground resolution of up to 1 mm with a horizontal accuracy of 4-6 mm and 10 mm vertically. Measurement flights with this type of accuracy took less than 15 minutes to cover a hectare (2.5 acres) of land. Impressive samples can be seen at www.service-drone.com.

About MULTIROTOR by service-drone
Founded in 2011 the company quickly became the market leader in the area of professional flying cameras for civilian applications with now over 400 UAS in operation across Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. In 2013 service-drone acquired its competitor MULTIROTOR. Their combined expertise allowed them to develop a leading-edge proprietary flight control system.

New in its 4th generation of models are a dual processor flight controller with a 'Black Box' to capture complete flight data 128 times per second and scriptable fully autonomous flight capabilities. The latter allows for a variety of sophisticated, robust applications. Customers include film studios, professional photographers, television stations, public agencies, academia, industrial service providers such as building inspectors and surveyors, and engineering bureaus.

Members of the recently founded US and Americas distribution company include the founders of service-drone.de GmbH and Dr. Lutz who directs the day-to-day operations from Boulder, CO.
