The Cansel/Delair agreement targets a market characterized by wide-area mapping and surveying needs, making the advantages of long-range aerial viewing and data collection well-suited for a range of industries. Cansel brings five decades of experience in this area, and the addition of solutions based on the Delair platform will allow Cansel to expand its capabilities to provide even more efficiencies and accuracy to its customers. In addition to offering Delair products, Cansel also plans on offering drone-based complementary services to Canadian based companies, such as training, integration of air- and ground-based technologies and processing via innovative and powerful cloud based services and desktop solutions.
Delair’s long-range, fixed-wing drones with sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) analytics and advanced machine learning algorithms are today sold in more than 70 countries. In 2016, the company established its North American headquarters in Los Angeles to address the expanding demand in the region.
“Having Delair solutions in our portfolio gives us a wider array of options for helping our clients with their mapping and survey needs. 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,” said Martin Trudelle, Vice President at Cansel.
“The Canadian market is an exciting one for UAVs and we see the ability to bring great value to business operations there. 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,” said Marta Jubero, Channel Sales Director at Delair.
