Topcon Accepts Wichmann Innovations Award for Falcon 8 Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Group   
Thursday, 17 November 2016

Livermore, Calif., USA/ Capelle A/d Ijssel, The Netherlands – November 17, 2016 – Topcon Positioning Group announces it has won the Wichmann Innovations Award in the competition’s hardware category. Topcon representatives accepted the award for the Topcon Falcon 8 (powered by Ascending Technologies, a part of Intel®) rotary-wing UAS (unmanned aerial system). The Wichmann Award is bestowed annually at the INTERGEO trade fair in Germany. The Falcon 8 was judged the winner based on the criteria of innovation, user-friendliness and practicality.

Designed for inspection and monitoring, as well as survey and mapping applications — the Falcon 8 features AscTec®Trinity technology, an autopilot safety feature that provides three levels of redundancy for protection against performance drop or loss of control. Three IMUs (inertial measurement units) synchronize all sensing data and identify, signal and compensate when needed.

“The Falcon 8 offers the flexibility to maneuver in small spaces and can cope with challenging environments often presented in inspection and monitoring,” said Ian Stilgoe, vice president portfolio management at Topcon Positioning Group. “Thanks to the participants who voted for the UAS and recognized its precision, reliability and user-friendliness.”

This is the fifth year the Wichmann Innovations Award has been bestowed.
