Drone startup Atmos UAV has closed it’s next investment round with investment firm Disruptive Technology Ventures (DTV). Atmos has developed an industrial drone that is a clever crossover between an airplane and a helicopter. The drone can already be found flying all over the world to help professionals in mapping large areas of land. The series A of undisclosed amount enables the startup to further scale up their distribution, product development and support organisation. “Our innovative drone, named Marlyn, combines the high flight performance of conventional aircraft with the vertical take-off and landing of helicopters” explains Sander Hulsman, CEO of Atmos UAV. “The investment, as well as the extensive experience of the DTV team, will help us achieving our goal of making Marlyn the new standard in the professional mapping industry.” With their technology, the company targets professional markets in which large area mapping plays a key role.
