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.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
