Information from Delta Drone International

Global drones-as-a-service provider, Delta Drone International is expanding its drone operations training for enterprise companies into Namibia via its accredited training subsidiary, Drone Safety & Legal (DSL). The training will be conducted remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions, allowing the training company to expand its courses beyond the usual fifteen enterprise courses each year.

Designed for enterprise drone operators with an intermediate understanding of aerial data capture, courses are tailored to each enterprise, run between 5 and 21 days, and cover all facets of a drone operation – from advanced drone capabilities and data platform integration, to administration, servicing, safety and compliance.

Earlier in 2021, DSL partnered with the University of Pretoria in South Africa to offer Remote Pilot License training to professionals in the mining, agriculture and engineering sectors. The first student intake was in April, with DSL trainers providing the practical, safety and licencing instruction, and University of Pretoria lecturers providing the related theory.

Through another of its subsidiaries, Rocketfarm, Delta Drone International has also expanded its operations into Zambia to deliver a specialised agricultural project for multinational agriculture services company, Syngenta. Rocketfarm will deliver real-time crop visualisation and analysis while allowing remote data capture and sharing of Syngenta’s field trials in the region – an essential part of the company’s research and development process.

As part of its diversification, Delta Drone International launched a new service offering with one of its gold mining clients by providing light detection and ranging (lidar) solutions in Ghana. The company’s mining specialist brand, Rocketmine, will provide its client with real-time lidar solutions via drone to examine mining site expansions.
