STRABAG, one of the largest construction companies in Europe, was an early adopter of UAV technology and successfully implemented Microdrones integrated systems to help strengthen their work flow and processes.
STRABAG has been applying digital object detection from the ground and air with state-of-the-art technologies for years. With drone surveying and mobile mapping, they are becoming one of the market leaders in 3D surveying. In fact, the STRABAG Group has concentrated their expanded range of services in digital surveying at their new office facilities in Regensburg with a focus to help drive the digital transformation in the construction industry.
STRABAG Teams Work
To help highlight their success in the field of 3D surveying, STRABAG recently commissioned a video to showcase their work with Microdrones for surveying and 3D data processing. The video is titled “STRABAG AG – New Drone Surveying and Mobile Laser Scanning” and illustrates how STRABAG stands for the highest quality and customer satisfaction. In their own words, “STRABAG teams work.”
The video exhibits STRABAG operating Microdrones integrated systems to help gain new perspectives and efficiently manage projects. The UAV platforms from Microdrones are able to house state-of-the-art camera and laser scanning systems providing highly accurate data and increasing the efficiency of the construction process.
STRABAG also demonstrates a successful application of mobile mapping surveys across long distances, both on roads and railways. Featured predominantly throughout most of the video is a Microdrones Commercial UAV, outfitted with some of the most advanced technology, to help STRABAG deliver the best results for their customers.
The services offered by STRABAG range from detailed point clouds, realistic 3D models, diverse object classifications, precise digital terrain models, calculation of cross-sections, model-based mass determinations and 3D vectorization.

Event 38 Unmanned Systems announced today that it has entered into a collaborative agreement with uAvionix to resell and integrate uAvionix ADS-B products with Event 38 aircraft.
Unmanned aerial systems and manned aircraft equipped with uAvionix ADS-B transceivers can track each other electronically while in flight. ADS-B transceivers like the Ping2020, which is small enough for Event 38 drones, receive and transmit information about air traffic such as location, altitude, and speed. The Ping series can detect ADS-B messages from aircraft up to 100 miles away.
When a uAvionix ADS-B transceiver is integrated with an Event 38 aircraft, operators can see the locations of manned air traffic overlaid directly on their ground station display. This capability improves both operator and pilot situational awareness, so operations near manned aircraft can be performed with an added level of safety. This risk mitigation tool may also increase the chance of being approved for Part 107 waivers such as high altitude and BLOS operations, depending on the location and airspace of the operation.
With this added ADS-B capability, Event 38 aircraft continue to lead the industry in long range mapping aircraft for EVLOS and BLOS operations. “Our prediction is that the FAA will require ADS-B as part of its eventual integration of unmanned aircraft into the NAS,” says Jeff Taylor, President, Event 38. “By partnering with uAvionix to offer this capability, we hope to make it easier for our customers to obtain Part 107 waivers now and to build flight heritage for future changes in regulation.”
Event 38 will carry all of uAvionix’s products for unmanned aircraft, including Ping2020, Ping1090, Ping200S(r) Transponders, and PingUSB. These products will be available on all Event 38 long endurance aircraft starting with the E384-Heavy and E400.
