ING Robotic Aviation is proud to announce that it has just entered into a partnership with Anthea Technologies to become the sole Canadian reseller of the Huginn X1 ‘quad rotor’ vertical takeoff and landing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The X1 is an outstanding platform in terms of reliability, cost and flexibility, and is the best quad rotor on the market today. In addition to sales of the platform, ING can also organize training and offer operational advice for the end user.
The X1 is an easy to carry and simple to use UAV that is ideal for defence and public safety applications. Small teams can easily use the system to greatly enhance their situational awareness in a wide range of applications including tactical surveillance, forensic crime scene investigation, search for missing persons and much more. The platform provides its user the ability to receive useful data, while simultaneously focusing on the task at hand.
“We are platform agnostic” says Ian Glenn, CEO of ING Robotic Aviation. “Simply put, our job is to make sure that the right information gets into the right hands at the right time. So we source the optimal equipment for the job. The X1 is the right equipment, and we are proud to be able to offer this system in Canada.”
ING Robotic Aviation delivers airborne sensing solutions and much more. The company has developed it's skills through extensive operational surveillance work with the Canadian military. From these beginnings, ING is now providing commercial services including critical infrastructure inspections, forest fire monitoring and land use planning in North America and other regions.
