SimActive Inc., a developer of photogrammetry software, has purchased multiple Correlator3D licenses by railway giant SNCF. The software is used in conjunction with UAVs from Delair-Tech, SimActive’s partner.
“Delair-Tech was the first company in the world to provide a drone solution for operations beyond line of sight,” says Benjamin Benharrosh, co-founder, and sales and marketing director of Delair-Tech. “Similarly, SimActive is the premier software for clients with advanced needs on extensive projects.”
The collaboration between SimActive and Delair-Tech aims to bring a new solution to the drone mapping industry. The speed and accuracy of Correlator3D, combined with the autonomy of Delair-Tech UAVs, allows for a turn-key reference solution for completing large-scale projects.
“We are proud to be selected by SNCF to fulfill inspection needs on their vast railroad network,” says Philippe Simard, president of SimActive. “Offering the capacity to process limitless images, Correlator3D remains the only reliable enterprise solution.”

A public sector group dedicated to public service, SNCF builds on its foundations in rail to offer a range of services, delivering seamless door-to-door mobility for transport and logistics operators, passengers and the regional and local governments that are its organizing authorities.
