Promotion of upgrading solutions for golf course management using drones
Hancom inSpace (CEO Choi Myung-jin), an affiliate of Hancom Group and a space and drone company, will manage golf courses using drones with UFO Astronaut (CEO Shim Chul-kyu), a drone data analysis company.
Hancom inSpace announced on the 18th that it signed a business agreement to upgrade golf course management solutions and expand service areas with officials including Choi Myung-jin, CEO of Hancom inSpace, and Shim Chul-kyu, CEO of UFO Astronaut.
Through this agreement, Hancom inSpace plans to combine its artificial intelligence-based image processing and analysis technology and unmanned drone operation system, “DroneSAT,” with UFO Astronaut’s intelligent golf course management solution to manage courses such as grass and facilities at golf courses.
UFO Astronaut is an AI-based drone data analysis and service company that provides intelligent golf course course management solutions based on Blue One Co., Ltd. and grass data that have been analyzed for many years. Recently, Hana Financial Group has provided facilities and stadium diagnosis and lawn analysis services through Duresin and data visualization.
Although the management of grass and facilities at home and abroad has mainly relied on professional manpower, it is also being introduced in Korea as more and more cases of using ICT technologies such as drones and IoT to manage golf courses have recently been raised in Australia and Japan.
“Although grass and other crops are affected by climate change, it is difficult to secure time and data to build them as a business model,” said Shim Chul-kyu, CEO of UFO Astronaut. “Through this agreement, we will upgrade the strategies and technologies of both companies to succeed as green formation business models in climate change and food security.”
Choi Myung-jin, CEO of Hancom inSpace, said, “The private market using drones is still very expandable in various fields such as agricultural and fishery industry, infrastructure management, and logistics. We will take the lead in creating an ecosystem and expanding the market through industry-academic cooperation.”
Meanwhile, Hancom inSpace participated in ‘2021 Drone Show Korea’ held at BEXCO in Busan last month and introduced future drone services such as drone charging, autonomous driving, and smart city drone safety net.
