CTG  is aiming to take on the challenge of a 40,000ha high-resolution survey in the Eastern Mauritania region using DATAhawk PPK. The sheer size of the project would make a normal drone survey with ground control an impossible task due to the immense number of ground control required and the difficult, barren terrain. Hence the 3cm to 6cm geospatial resolution capable with the QuestUAV PPK technology brings this opportunity closer to reality.

The companies director, Cheikh Tijani Hamed, received his DATAhawk PPK fixed-wing drone during his official drone training in the United Kingdom in February 2019.

Mauritania is one of Africa’s newest oil producers and is rich in mineral resources such as iron and ore.  Mauritania is in North West Africa and the eleventh largest sovereign state in Africa, bordered by Algeria, Mali, Western Sahara and Senegal.  The largely desert country presents a cultural contrast, with an Arab-Berber population to the North and black Africans to the south.  Many of its people are nomads.
