Construction, piloting and applications of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)

Our research institute provides an advanced service in the Construction, Piloting, and Applications of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly known as drones. We specialize in developing diverse drone applications tailored to various needs, ranging from infrastructure inspection and large-scale crop monitoring to cartography generation and cadastral control.

Our drones are designed to assist in critical situations such as natural disasters, where they can provide crucial information rapidly and safely. We leverage the latest technology in UAS design and operation, providing drones with superior flight capabilities, high-resolution imaging, and advanced data processing. Our team of experienced drone pilots ensures accurate data capture and operational efficiency.

We are committed to helping you harness the potential of drone technology, offering solutions that improve safety, efficiency, and decision-making in your operations.
