The Japanese company arrives Down Under after completing an equity investment in Australian company, C4D Intel Pty Ltd.

C4D Intel will now be renamed Terra Drone Australia as part of the deal, and will focus on the mining, oil, gas, power and forestry sectors. Previously, the company provided surveying, inspection, and 3D modelling services in these industries.

Terra Drone Australia says it will be able to leverage the additional growth capital to expand its service offering to include "unmanned airborne LiDAR, bring innovative Terra Group technologies to Australia and expand its operations to the East coast of Australia".

It holds an impressive list of existing clients, such as Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group, and large utilities such as ATCO Gas Australia and Synergy.

"We are delighted to join the No.1 industrial drone services company in the world, Terra Drone," C4D Intel operations manager Will Wishart says.

"When the world’s fastest-growing drone business chooses to expand to Australia, and selects our business to invest in, it speaks volumes about the opportunities available here and the vision we have for the company.

"There are many advantages of being a part of a global organization and this next phase of growth makes for very exciting times," Wishart adds.

"We have already leveraged Terra Drone’s international network to bring new technology to Australia and look forward to accelerating this as we expand our operations across the Australian continent."

Terra Drone Corporation CEO Toru Tokushige adds: "The establishment of Terra Drone Australia is another milestone for our international expansion strategy.

"Australia bears a strategic significance in our growth plans, having a local presence in the region allows us to be close to our customers and strengthen our support to them."

Terra Drone Australia will bring innovative drone technology from The Netherlands to Australia later this month for ‘proof of concept’ trials with mining group Rio Tinto.
