Atmos - Marlyn UAV


Atmos - Marlyn UAV


Fly in the Toughest Winds, up to 45km/h

Surveyors deserve better than 30km/h wind limits. That's why with Marlyn you can take off, survey, and land comfortably in winds of up to 45km/h (28mph), more than any other survey drone.

Operate from Any 2x2m Area

Take off like a Helicopter and Fly like an Airplane. With Marlyn you can operate from anywhere and cover up to 150Ha (370 Acres) per flight. No more finding large clear areas for belly landing!

Engineered and manufactured in Europe

To ensure high-end quality and ethical trade standards, we believe in keeping things local. That’s why all of our Marlyns are designed, created, and assembled right here in the Netherlands.

How is Marlyn helping surveyors?

Increased Efficiency

Take your data capture to the next level. Marlyn speeds up your data capture by surveying large areas up to 30x faster than traditional land surveying methods, and up to 10x faster than Multicopter drones.

Survey Anywhere

Small take-off areas? No problem, Marlyn only needs a 2x2m flat area to take off and land allowing you to be flexible in your operations. Easy backpack transport is also perfect for those heading off the beaten track.

Survey Any Time

With Marlyn 'no-go' days are turned into routine projects. You get the benefit of flying in wind conditions of up to 45km/h at ground level, and 55km/h at cruise altitude resulting in up to 30% more days per month.

Absolute Accuracy

Accuracy is king in the surveying world. Attain accuracies as low as 1cm with Sony’s 42MP, full-frame RX1RII combined with Topcon's PPK module, an Aerial surveying match made in heaven!

Dedicated Survey Cameras

Marlyn’s cameras are modular, meaning they're swappable in minutes. A variety of RGB and specialty cameras are available to suit your project requirements.

How does Marlyn help you fly more?

Referencing localised weather data, Marlyn's Wind Benefit Calculator shows you how many more days in a year Marlyn can operate compared to competing products**

Reduce time and cost with PPK.

With your integrated Topcon PPK, you can quickly survey areas down to accuracies as low as 1cm without the time-consuming placing and use of Ground Control Points, and without the need for a constant data link between the aircraft and the ground.

Get results easily with the right software.

Developed with ease of use and Data Quality in mind, your in-field operation software Navigator and geo-referencing Geotagger will allow you to get survey-quality data without all the hassle and inaccuracies typically associated with certain mapping drones.
