Applanix releases highly accurate mapping solution for small UAVs


Berlin, October 8, 2014: Applanix, a world leader in products and solutions for mobile mapping and positioning announced a new solution for highly accurate and cost-effective directly georeferenced mapping from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) at the ongoing at the ongoing Intergeo 2014 conference in Berlin.

The Applanix APX-15 UAV offers unmatched performance in an very small package and coupled with the included POSPac UAV post-mission software, delivers a highly accurate position and orientation solution for direct georeferencing of LIDARs, cameras, and other UAS sensors.

Weighing only 60 grams, it features a survey-grade, multi-frequency, high-performance GNSS receiver and state-of-the-art low-noise MEMS inertial sensors all on a single board.

Joe Hutton, Director of Inertial Technology and Airborne Products at Applanix Corporation said,We are offering a cost-effective solution that meets the size, weight, power and cost requirements of small UAS', and maintains the Applanix pedigree for quality and performance."

The APX-15 UAV with 220 channels, tracks all available GNSS satellite signals including GPS L1/L2/L2C/L5 and GLONASS L1/L2, QZSS, BeiDou and Galileo, and offers a highly accurate post-mission and real-time RTK GNSS-inertial position and orientation solution to support control and guidance, sensor georeferencing and precision landing.
