 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.
