Lightweight multicopter UASs such as the Aibotix X6, shown here, are proving ideal for infrastructure inspections of powerlines, bridges, dams and power plants.

Swiss airborne mapping company Leica Geosystems has teamed with German unmanned aircraft system (UAS) manufacturer Aibotix to create a one-stop shop for infrastructure inspection and mapping.

“For us this is really the next step in our UAS strategy,” said Rüdiger Wagner, general manager of Leica’s geospatial solutions division. “UAS-based mapping solutions are on the increase, and we have been carefully expanding our exposure to this market by focusing on select applications.”

Headquartered in Heerbrugg, Switzerland, Leica is part of Sweden’s Hexagon Group andmaintains U.S. headquarters in Norcross, Ga. The company also specializes in offering digital airborne and light detection and ranging sensors for the geospatial industry.
