In January 2019, there has been a collaboration between Terra Drone Corporation and AeroGeosurvey Indonesia through investment in form of capital and technology. The result of this collaboration made AeroGeosurvey as part of Terra Drone global group with a new identity: Terra Drone Indonesia. By having technology provided by Terra Drone Corporation, Terra Drone Indonesia will be able to offer more drone applications and solutions for industries in Indonesia.
“We have discussed with many drone operators and were very impressed with AeroGeosurvey’s good track record and professional experience,” said Toru Tokushige, CEO of Terra Drone.
This decision was based on the good track record, high quality, and professionalism of AeroGeosurvey that has been carried out for the past three years. This made Terra Drone choose AeroGeosurvey to be the right part to achieve Terra Drone’s vision which is to be the largest drone service provider in the world.
Director of AeroGeosurvey, Michael Wishnu Wardana, added, “With this investment, we are capable of providing higher lever service by utilizing Terra Drone’s 3D surveying know-how and latest technology such as own LiDAR system Terra LiDAR which is twice or three times cheaper than conventional UAV laser.”
This also became an opportunity for Terra Drone Indonesia to explore various technologies and methodologies available in the world including Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology to customers in various sectors, not only in Indonesia but also in Southeast Asia, based on Terra Drone’s global network. Terra Drone will continue to generate innovations in drone applications that have great impact on society.
AeroGeosurvey will formally change its identity to Terra Drone Indonesia gradually in Q1 2019.
AeroGeosurvey Indonesia is a drone service provider established in 2016 that provide solutions for industrial application which include aerial mapping and modeling, as well as aerial inspection and monitoring. In addition, AeroGeosurvey Indonesia also provides training and consultancy services for drone users in the industry.
Terra Drone Corporation is a leading global commercial drone technology company for industrial needs which was established in 2016. Terra Drone’s head office is located in Tokyo, Japan, which has global branch offices in several countries in Asia, Africa, North America and Latin America.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Indiana/FORT COLLINS, Colorado – Remote GeoSystems, Inc., a provider of immersive geospatial video, photo and data recording and reporting software for survey and inspection, is partnering with Purdue University with a gift to the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) degree program and laboratory. The UAS program at Purdue focuses on geospatial data collection and analysis by unmanned aerial systems, also known as “drones.”
As part of the partnership, Remote GeoSystems is providing Purdue with a starting gift of the company’s LineVision video-mapping software suite valued at $111,000, with additional licenses available as needed by students and faculty. Purdue will support Remote GeoSystems as a research and development partner by beta testing new features and technologies and exploring an ever-growing array of applications for Remote GeoSystems’ geospatial software and hardware within the research community.
“Remote GeoSystems is on the leading edge of videogrammetry,” says Joseph Hupy, Ph.D., associate professor with Purdue University’s School of Aviation and Transportation Technology.
Videogrammetry refers to utilizing specific methods and software capabilities for rapidly collecting continuously geo-referenced video and then “geo-editing” and extracting geotagged still photos from the video at user-defined frequencies. These video-derived image datasets are then used to build orthomosaics and 3D models in traditional geospatial imagery processing software.
“Remote GeoSystems is establishing methods to quickly collect and derive the geospatial data from drone videos that will change a number of industries and drive the acceleration of location-based artificial intelligence,” explained Hupy. “Having their software and team connected to Purdue is a significant resource for our evolving UAS program.”
The School of Aviation and Transportation Technology – part of Purdue Polytechnic Institute, one of the 10 academic colleges at Purdue University – is based out of the historic Niswonger Aviation Technology Building, which once housed Amelia Earhart’s airplane.
“Purdue has long been a global leader in aerospace and engineering curriculum and a pioneering institution in the aviation field since the early 20th century,” says Jeff Dahlke, managing director, Remote GeoSystems. “We are proud to now partner with and support the University as their next generation of students takes UAS platforms from novelty to the true airborne workhorses of the 21st century.”
