General Dynamics European Land Systems-Bridge Systems (GDELS-Bridge Systems) announced on the 28th of January that it has been awarded a contract to develop a multifunctional, modular floating platform known as Pontoon Boat, or PoBo.

The project was awarded under the Innovation Programme for the Support of Diversification Strategies of Defense Companies in Civil Security Technologies, or DIVERS.  DIVERS is a program launched by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWI), with VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH as the responsible project executing agency.

“The PoBo is a modularly configurable floating device,” said Sascha Wahlster, head of civil activities for GDELS-Bridge Systems.  “It can be used to assemble heavy-duty transport, working, diving and recovery platforms or bridges.”

“By means of specially developed propulsion systems and supported by drone based underwater sensors, safe, semi-autonomous driving in flooded and unmapped areas will be made possible,” said Wahlster.

The PoBo will be developed to be ergonomically friendly, and will have a mobile virtual reality system to conduct fast and cost-effective training.

GDELS-Bridge Systems, the market leader in military floating bridges is a part of the newly-established General Dynamics European Land Systems–Deutschland.  The company, which employs 400 people, has been developing and producing these systems in Kaiserslautern, Rhineland-Palatinate, for 65 years.

“Essential for the success of our application was the integration not only of existing long-standing cooperation partners such as the Entwicklungszentrum für Schiffstechnik und Transportsysteme e.V. (Development Centre for Ship Technology and Transport Systems, DST) in Duisburg and the Bremen-based company szenaris specialized in learning programs and simulations for digital learning,” said Christian Kauth, Managing Director of GDELS-Bridge Systems.  “Through our collaboration in the Science and Innovation Alliance Kaiserslautern (SIAK) and the Commercial Vehicle Cluster (CVC), many new cooperation approaches have emerged.”

“Consequently, the integration of the Institute for Robotic Systems at Kaiserslautern University of Technology and the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) into the project developed,” Kauth said.  “The decisive factor, however, was that we were able to win the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) in close cooperation with national fire brigades and police authorities as a project partners, as this is the only way to successfully develop a system that optimally supports relief, rescue and security forces in their challenging tasks worldwide.”

AeroGeosurvey Indonesia is part of the global Terra Drone group and the axis in Southeast Asia

As of January 2019, a new collaboration has started between Terra Drone and AeroGeosurvey Indonesia through investments in the form of capital and technology. As a result, AeroGeosurvey Indonesia has become part of Terra Drone group and will continue under their new name: Terra Drone Indonesia. Terra Drone will provide Terra Drone Indonesia with latest cutting-edge technologies and will be able to offer more solutions for their customers in Indonesia.

“We had discussions with a large number of drone operators in Indonesia, and we were impressed especially with good track record of AeroGeosurvey Indonesia and its professional experiences over the past three years,” said Toru Tokushige, CEO of Terra Drone.

This made Terra Drone choose AeroGeosurvey Indonesia to be their partner of choice to achieve Terra Drone’s vision, which is to be the largest drone service and technology provider in the world.

Director of AeroGeosurvey Indonesia, Michael Wishnu Wardana, added, “with this investment, we are capable of providing a higher level of service by utilizing Terra Drone’s 3D surveying know-how and latest technology such as their own LiDAR system, Terra LiDAR, which is twice or three times cheaper than conventional UAV LiDAR systems.”

This is an excellent opportunity for Terra Drone Indonesia to embrace latest technologies including Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), artificial intelligence based inspections to customers in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Terra Drone will continue to generate more cutting edge innovations in drone applications that will have great impact on the market and society.

AeroGeosurvey Indonesia will formally change its identity to Terra Drone Indonesia gradually in first quarter in 2019.
