KOREC to distribute unmanned flying camera for aerial mapping projects

28 April 2011

Sensefly SwingletCAM UASKOREC is delighted to announce that it has signed an agreement with Swiss company, SenseFLY, to become the sole UK and Irish distributor of SenseFLY’s unmanned flying camera, the swinglet CAM.

The swinglet CAM is a lightweight, unmanned air vehicle (UAV) with a high resolution electronically integrated digital camera. Designed to undertake small scale aerial mapping projects it can be deployed in under one minute, is hand launched and has a take-off weight of just 500g. The camera records 10-40 cm/pixel images and can produce over 100 hectares of aerial photo coverage during its 30 minute flight.

An integrated GPS based miniature autopilot ensures that the swinglet CAM starts, flies and lands silently on its own. Its flight path is defined in easy to use PC based software and can be updated at any point during the flight by using the software’s simple drag and drop functions. When the swinglet CAM lands, images can be immediately downloaded and are ideal for use in a wide range of applications including wildlife monitoring, traffic monitoring, archaeology, crop monitoring, security, mapping or environmental projects.

KOREC’s Mapping Solutions Consultant Brock Ryder said, “The swinglet CAM has been developed to undertake a wide range of aerial mapping projects without the usual costs or set ups involved – it’s simply thrown in the air for take-off and returns to the same location for an automatic landing. Previous sales in Europe indicate that it will open up customised aerial photography to a whole new market in the UK and Ireland where previously costs were prohibitive – anyone from a small landowner to a large government body can expect a swift return on investment.  End users can now be the pilot of their own aerial photography missions and have access to the data minutes after landing! Additionally, the swinglet CAM’s low weight and size mean that there are few flying restrictions*! It is the perfect addition to KOREC’s extensive portfolio of Trimble GPS and Mapping solutions.”

For further information please call KOREC on 0845 603 1214 (UK) or 01 456 4702 (Ireland) or view a video of the swinglet CAM in action on the KOREC website at http://bit.ly/korecswinglet

 * Certain restrictions & permissions may be required for use of the UAV in Ireland & the UK.  KOREC will provide guidance in the granting of permissions as required.
