Medical logistics

German Copters DLS GmbH strives to revolutionize and optimize the transportation routes for the delivery of medical material. In addition, we focus on patient and supply security while maintaining a more economical solution.

When developing the solutions, we bring in our core competencies in the medical field and work with the world's leading technology providers.

Safety, speed, reliability and privacy

What are the requirements of German Copters for the transport of medical material?:

  • Safety comes first. Be it the safety of the population or the safety of the cargo, GermanCopters uses proven technology and has installed several safety components. With GermanCopters the data transfer is triple, and the power supply of the drone is secured 6 times.
  • The drone has a parachute that protects people and structures on the ground in an emergency from injury or damage.
  • The transported material is anonymized. Personal data cannot be read out without the corresponding key.


German Copters DLS GmbH specializes in inspecting radio masts and structures using drones. The core technology is based on artificial intelligence and advanced algorithms that allow us to support large and complex projects in a wide variety of industries.

Before every flight, our drone pilots work out the task together with the customer's engineers. German Copters utilizes it proven workflows for different tasks.

GIS Support

For German Copters, aerial surveying is not just about drones. Rather, the focus is on solutions that contain all the elements for professional geo-data management. Nevertheless, the drones must also be able to be used safely over urban areas. Basically, the capturing of GEO data is about two essential technologies that can be used to generate point clouds. A laser or a camera can be used. Laser scanners can generate point clouds directly; when taking photos, point clouds are created using photogrammetry. Over the past two years, drone LiDAR has become increasingly popular in many industries, such as surveying, engineering, inspection, mining, and construction, where the technology can help increase efficiency, accuracy, and profits.

Pros of LiDAR

  • LiDAR is the way to go for absolute accuracy also because of the integrated GNSS data (direct measurement)
  • LiDAR’s light pulses penetrate the gaps between leaves and branches, reaching the ground below and improving the accuracy of measurements.
  • LiDAR is also preferable if the light conditions are inconsistent
  • LiDAR allows you to capture details that are small in diameter.

Pros of Photogrammetry

  • Photogrammetry is more easily accessible and can already be implemented using normal camera drones.
  • If the camera can be calibrated, mapping missions can be implemented quite easily and quickly.
  • The colours of the photos make it easier to recognize and assign structures that have been converted into point clouds.
  • The costs of photogrammetry solutions are lower compared to LiDAR

Choose LiDAR for:

  • Mapping hard to access, complex, and overgrown terrain
  • Capturing details on thin structures, such as power lines or roof edges
  • Projects where detail and precision are the priorities

Choose Photogrammetry for:

  • Context-rich scans that are accessible and require minimal post-processing and expertise
  • Maps and models that are easy for untrained eyes to understand
  • Datasets that need visual assessment

Security, speed, reliability and data protection

Which technology is used depends on the task:

LiDAR and photogrammetry are data capturing methods that cannot be compared with one another. The task determines which method is best suited. For complex mapping projects that involve elevation accuracy, complex structures, or partially covered terrain, LiDAR is probably the way to go. Costs and the experience of the team are important in both methods. It is also important to know how the data is processed and prepared so that it can be made available to the various users in high quality as a basis for decision-making.
