AUSTIN, Texas, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Microdrones is excited to announce that Martin Instrument, a leading equipment provider for surveying and construction companies throughout Texas, has added a new product line to their extensive offering: Microdrones mdMapper unmanned aerial systems.

Developed specifically for surveying and mapping, mdMapper packages integrate robust Microdrones quadcopter aircraft with advanced sensors and software to improve the efficiency, safety, and accuracy of geospatial projects.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer these systems to our customers," said Mike Minick, Martin Instrument Vice President. "Microdrones UAS can help companies improve the way they perform jobs and add new services to the scope of work they can provide."

Available immediately, Martin Instrument is offering the following products:

mdMapper200 - Compact, complete, and competitively priced, mdMapper200 is a great option for companies seeking the easiest possible drone to transport or a smaller drone to add to their fleet.
mdMapper1000 - Extra-long flight times and resistance to harsh environmental conditions make this complete mapping system an excellent choice for applications like surveying, mapping, inspection, and construction.
mdMapper1000DG - The benefits of mdMapper1000 plus the power of direct georeferencing combine to produce the best possible accuracy and time savings with no ground control points. This system enables highly efficient corridor mapping.
Optional accessory packages - Add-ons like inspection accessories, multispectral, thermal, and soon LiDAR and methane gas detection accessory bundles add flexibility and functionality to the platform.
"Our clients' customers are asking for UAV services and an mdMapper package is a great way to get started," explained Minick. "Microdrones UAS offer long flight times, superb stability, flexibility in the field, resistance to harsh weather and environmental conditions, and they are easy to learn and operate."

As Martin Instrument begins selling these products, Microdrones will support them with training, marketing, and product support.

"Martin Instrument is a great group of people that is all about personal relationships. A lot of teams say that - but with Martin, it's the truth. We want to assist them in any way that we can to ensure their customers succeed and have a great experience doing it," said Chuck Dorgan, Microdrones Sales Director in North America.

To support dealers like Martin Instrument, Microdrones recently developed an online Dealer Toolbox complete with presentations, images, logos, and sales tools to help dealers reach their customers. "The Dealer Toolbox will continue to expand with a Microdrones clothing and merchandise site, as well as sales primers and camera-ready ads," said Mike Dziok, Marketing Director for Microdrones. "We want to make it easy for dealers to explain the technology because, well, when you can do that, it sells itself."
