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
