About SciDrones

Share this:

SciDrones P.C. is a spin-off company from the University of the Aegean (2022). It is a private startup company located in Lesvos Island, Greece, founded in 2021, by a team of experts in coastal mapping. The founders have vast experience in remote sensing, geoinformatics, and Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) technologies. SciDrones is a natural result of 7 years of intensive research on UAS technology and visualization of the geoinformation in the coastal area.

SciDrones’ main business focus is the mapping and quantifying of emerging coastal phenomena through state-of-the-art sensors. Quantification includes artificial intelligence algorithms and dedicated spatiotemporal visualizations. SciDrones analytical tools transform remote sensing data into real Information that drives decision-making.

The company has been awarded a grant from EIT Digital Venture Program 2021 and is a member of the Science Agora Funding program 2022. In addition, SciDrones is an alumnus of ACEin incubator in Athens and has just registered as a member of the Orange Grove Incubator of the embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Athens.

Our equipment

The Scidrones team owns and operates the following fleet of UAVs.

DJI Phantom 4 RTK

The phantom RTK is a small, reliant drone that offers customers centimeter-accurate data while requiring fewer ground control points.

DJI Matrice M30T

The Matrice M30T integrates wide, zoom, and thermal cameras with a laser rangefinder, which together can capture the aerial data needed for monitoring critical infrastructure.
