We are pleased to announce that Dassault Systèmes and Delair, a leading supplier of commercial drone solutions have signed a collaboration agreement confirming our intentions to combine Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, GEOVIA solutions and relevant drone-based technologies developed by Delair, and cooperatively promote these solutions for the mining and construction industries.
“In just a few years, companies of all sized have embraced unmanned aerial vehicles for land and mine surveys. Surveys traditionally performed by personnel often in dangerous conditions are now conducted by drones, eliminating the need to expose surveyors to unnecessary risks. These technologies are also revolutionizing how mining companies are using survey data to manage their operations. It’s now possible to automatically fly a drone several times a week to accurately measure stockpile volumes or monitor the progress of a large construction site like a hydroelectric dam without even interrupting the operations.” says Raoul Jacquand, GEOVIA Brand CEO at Dassault Systèmes.
Over recent years, Delair have developed photogrammetry techniques and machine-learning based imagery analytics allowing the high fidelity capture of changing conditions at the surface of large-scale infrastructure projects, which ultimately result in actionable insights. This valuable information, typically generated in the form of large point clouds and photogrammetric scenes, can be further exploited using GEOVIA Surpac or the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The implementation of technology developed within Dassault Systèmes, allows Delair generated actionable intelligence to inform downstream processes of mining or construction companies.
“As more and more high-resolution aerial imagery is captured and processed, the ability to inject in near real time point clouds in design and planning decisions will differentiate best-class operators from the average ones. This vision of digital continuity from the drone takeoff all the way to models and operational plans is really exciting. Delair and Dassault Systèmes share that vision and our collaboration aims at making it a reality”.
This cooperation agreement will enable to explore the synergies between the software solutions of both companies for the benefit of the industry processes which are mission-critical to our common customers.
