MAYSVILLE, Kentucky, U.S.A. (January 2020) – Carlson Software is pleased to welcome back Michael Manning, this time as the Director of Sales for the Carlson Software land development product line in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Manning, who is based near Brisbane, Australia, previously worked at Carlson from 2005 to 2009 as its Business Development Manager for the APAC region. Over the last decade, he has expanded his expertise in GNSS and Aerial Photogrammetry and has become a Professional Remote Pilot in Australia.

“My seven years of drone sector experience will be a useful asset for Carlson as it seeks to expand its airborne mapping solutions to its extensive product portfolio,” said Manning, who has accumulated more than 600 hours of flying time in the fixed wing, multi rotor, and hybrid categories and who has his Instrument Rating Exam (IREX). He also has his certificate IV in Training And Assessment (TAE) and was certified by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to conduct basic and advanced training courses for Remote Pilots.

Manning recently trained a team in Cambodia to proficiently operate an advanced fixed wing drone for deforestation and agricultural mapping applications, and, in Fiji, he conducted advanced operational training in multi-rotor and fixed-wing drones for advanced surveying and mapping applications.

With this recent experience, Manning will be responsible for managing the development and implementation of the software and hardware product mix for Carlson Software’s aerial mapping solutions. He will also be working closely with the Carlson team members representing the products servicing the laser measuring devices (LMD), machine control, mining and crime scene investigation industries.

“I have always believed in the Carlson Software circle of products philosophy and am excited that I will be able to play a role in plugging this one remaining gap in that circle,” said Manning. “The Carlson team has grown by nearly 50% in the 10 years that I have been away. There are now more international team members than those in the USA which is a testament to the vision of the company. I look  forward to catching up with old acquaintances and clients and to establishing new ones, so that we can continue to see the Carlson brand grow across the globe,” he added.
