Delft, 11th July 2019
Atmos UAV, the Delft based drone manufacturer that develops VTOL fixed-wing drones for surveying and mapping, has signed a reseller agreement with Mena3D. Mena3D with its headquarters in Germany (Stuttgart) and several other offices in the Middle East and North Africa will strengthen Atmos UAV distribution network meeting the demand in the MENA region. Apart from the supply of Marlyn, Mena3D will also provide support and first line maintenance.
“I think everyone in the geospatial world has acknowledged the benefits of drone surveying. VTOL drones come with many advantages but a big differentiating factor in choosing Marlyn is its wind resistance. This is really a game changer as it offers on average 50% productivity gains for surveyors compared to other drones (less to no lost days due to high winds). With Marlyn, we want to further diversify our portfolio and keep supplying our clients with cutting-edge surveying equipment” said Dr. Khaled El Nabbout, General Manager at Mena3D GmbH.
