French drone provider Delair has announced a sales agreement with Cansel, a Canadian provider of surveying and mapping solutions. The deal directs sales of Delair’s UX 11 long-range drone, with plans to include the company’s full product line.
The agreement also means Delair fixed-wing drones are now certified as compliant by Transport Canada. As a Canadian company, Cansel is already certified as a drone operator.
“The Canadian market is an exciting one for UAVs and we see the ability to bring great value to business operations there,” Delair Channel Sales Director Marta Jubero said. “From agriculture to mining, to construction, transportation and oil and gas, our track record of improving efficiencies through insightful analysis of data will be an important part of what Cansel can now offer.”
Headquartered in Toulouse, France, Delair has offices in Ghent, Belgium, Los Angeles and Singapore with drone products sold in more than 70 countries by a network of resellers.
“Having Delair solutions in our portfolio gives us a wider array of options for helping our clients with their mapping and survey needs,” Cansel Vice President Martin Trudelle said.
“The range and distance of Delair’s UX11, as well as the high-performance functionality of its operational and sensing technology, will allow us to deliver highly effective approaches to aerial data collection that has tangible ROI for companies in many sectors.”
Delair launched the UX11 fixed-wing drone in April. Designed for survey-grade mapping and other industrial missions, the UX11 offers:
- Embedded global shutter camera
- Intuitive analytics and data reporting tools
- Post processed kinematic (PPK) capabilities
- 2.4 GHz wireless and 3G/4G cellular connectivity
- End-to-end system empowering flights of up to 59 minutes over 500 acres at 400 feet
“The UX11 enables industry-leading performance, GSD and flight range, as well as streamlined maintenance, advantages that all reduce costs,” Delair Geospatial Product Manager Chase Fly said. “The integrated processing capabilities are able to collect, analyze and share data and images in real time and provide users with accurate results that shape critical operational decisions and strategies.”
The company recently inked a commercial agreement with UAV sales/support firm Frontier Precision, launching Delair’s first service centers in the U.S. while also providing a new domestic sales outlet.
