Quantum-Systems and SKYLAB partner to provide foresters with digital forest management information

Quantum-Systems GmbH, an innovative developer, designer and manufacturer of advanced unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and SKYLAB, the fully-digitalized forest management provider, today announced a partnership to help forestry customers maximize productivity and reduce costs.

With deep learning and advanced aerial data analytics, SKYLAB provides fully-digitalized forest management, from seedling survival and weed monitoring to full timber and carbon stock inventories, as well as monitoring forest health and harvesting operations for 100% of the areas. SKYLAB enables its customers to receive precise information on their forestry assets, with 24/7 access to the results online. Paired with aerial data generated by the Trinity F90+ UAV, customers will be able to maximize productivity and optimize management processes.

Designed and manufactured in Germany, Trinity F90+, the fixed-wing eVTOL from Quantum-Systems flies as efficiently as a fixed-wing aeroplane, allows for easy vertical take-off and landing, like a multi-rotor drone, and comes with the broadest choice of integrated sensors in the industry. Trinity F90+ offers a wide range of easily interchangeable camera solutions, which includes the MicaSense Altum-PT, MicaSense RedEdge-P, Qube 240 LiDAR, Sony UMC- R10C, Sony RX1 RII and the Oblique D2M cameras. Additionally, the Trinity F90+ drone can fly for up to 90 minutes – well beyond the industry standard of 60 minutes – allowing forestry professionals to move from sampling and extrapolating 1% of the forest to knowing 100% of the forest.

Combining the state-of-the-art hardware from Quantum-Systems and the sophisticated forestry and plantation management software from SKYLAB, customers have access to a complete solution that maximizes the usage of aerial data generated by the Trinity F90+ UAV. Using SKYLABcloud for easy data upload, seamless processing, analyzing and mapping, with no prior GIS knowledge needed, customers can generate precise and detailed maps on the state of their forest, to be integrated into their own management systems.

Using the highly accurate SKYLAB maps, foresters reduce their operating costs and maximize productivity by identifying areas of low seeding survival, targeting seeding refill, minimizing chemical and mechanical input, monitoring disease and problem areas, and optimizing harvesting operations, which all results in significantly higher profitability. #forestAi
