Under the partnership, the companies will develop a UK distribution network for Aerialtronics’ flagship Altura Zenith unmanned aircraft system and their product line.
MRL are safety, risk and resilience specialists who focus on developing operational solutions for temporary built environments globally, such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in London, the 2015 European Games in Baku and the Volvo Ocean Race in Dubai.
Judy Jackson, managing director of MRL, said: “MRL have been using UAVs for many years, complementing its risk and resilience management operations. Not only are we really impressed with the Altura Zenith product range, but also Aerialtronics as a company, specifically their focus on innovation and customer service. MRL are proud to be an Aerialtronics partner.”
Droneflight have extensive experience of delivering high quality video and inspection. They are also collaborating on several projects integrating the Zenith into emergency services management platforms.
Andrew Griffiths, Managing Director of Droneflight, said: “The Zenith is a great platform, with the capabilities to perform in the real world – not just a sunny day. The quick release payload system and broad range of sensors it supports gives it a huge advantage in this market.”
Aerialtronics will be demonstrating the Zenith during the UK’s second annual Commercial UAV Show, at ExCel, London, on Oct 20-21. Jeremy Wigmore, CEO of Aerialtronics, will be a key speaker at this event which is expecting 3,000 visitors, more than 800 commercial end users and 100 exhibitors this year. Aerialtronics is also a gold sponsor of the event.
Jeremy said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with key UK distributors MRL and Droneflight as each party brings its own unique skills and contacts to the business. The Commercial UAV Show will be an opportunity for customers to meet these UK teams.
“As we continue to expand our global footprint working with MRL and Droneflight will increase our presence in the UK, which offers tremendous opportunities for Aerialtronics and the Altura Zenith.”
Aerialtronics launched its third generation system, the Altura Zenith in 2014. By collecting aerial data and processing it into valuable information the Zenith platform gives clients insights into making smart business decisions.
