Centre de géomatique du Québec selects ING Robotic Aviation's Responder for 
use in Geomatics 
OTTAWA, May 12, 2014 /CNW/ - CGQ (Centre de géomatique du Québec) has 
purchased ING Robotic Aviation's Responder robotic aircraft system as a tool 
for aerial data acquisition. The Responder will be used to collect aerial 
imagery that will contribute to CGQ's scientific research activities in the 
geomatics field. 


      "Responder is a perfect
       tool for geomatics,"
       states Ian Glenn, CEO
       and CTO of ING Robotic
       Aviation. "Our equipment
       will be used to get the
       right information, into
       the right hands, at the
       right time."

ING Robotic Aviation has sold a complete Responder vertical takeoff and 
landing (VTOL) robotic aircraft, including a portable Ground Control System 
(GCS) and ancillary equipment. As well the company will be providing a 
one-week training package that will take place with the delivery in the spring 
of this of this year. Furthermore, based on ING Robotic Aviation's excellent 
track record, the company will also be providing services support to CGQ.

ING Robotic Aviation and CGQ have worked together on a number of other 
projects in the past. CGQ was very pleased with the fact that ING Robotic 
Aviation could reliably perform precise aerial data acquisition. In turn, the 
Responder was chosen for the CGQ's current project due to its flexibility, 
reliability and performance in its ability to lift a variety of heavy sensors.

CGQ is a non-profit organization that is central to technology transfer. They 
work with other organizations to develop an abundance of efficiently retrieved 
knowledge. Their mission is to improve and innovate the use and development of 
geomatics by applied research, technical assistance and training. They have 
consequently created a highly dynamic mapping system.

ING Robotic Aviation delivers airborne sensing solutions and much more.  The 
company developed their skills through extensive operational surveillance work 
with the Canadian military.  From these beginnings, they are now providing 
commercial services including critical infrastructure inspections, forest fire 
monitoring and land use planning in North America and other regions. Their 
clients are getting the right information in the right hands in a timely 
manner, while also discovering whole new uses and capabilities for robotic 
aviation.  ING Robotic Aviation is at the forefront of a disruptive 
technological and operational change, focused on reinventing aviation.
