At the cutting edge of high-precision cartography
SenseFly has established itself as a world leader in the sector of drones for professional usage and now employs some 120 people in the canton.
SenseFly was founded in 2009, making it one of the first companies to be involved in the sector of professional drones. It is now firmly established in Cheseaux in the canton of Vaud, employing 140 people in total (120 of them in Switzerland) and with growth of over 30% per year, making it one of the biggest manufacturers in the world in this sector. "We rapidly identified cases for a relevant application for professional usage, in particular in the field of cartography and GIS (geographic information systems), then after that in agriculture and inspection," explains head of sales and marketing Jean-Thomas Célette.
The company specializes in focusing on this type of application. Its products are used to map large areas in 3D and in very high precision, and to inspect buildings and works of art. "In more general terms, we develop solutions to enable our clients to take their readings more efficiently, more accurately, and with greater security," Célette continues.
