China: CHC Navigation has released a UAV Ground Control (UAV GC) and Post Processing kit for all high precision UAV systems. The GNSS kit, which is claimed to be the industry’s first, is designed to bring an easy to operate and cost-effective system for producing cm level control for all UAV projects.
The standard CHC UAV GC kit includes five GNSS receivers with easy expansion of additional receivers in pairs. The core of the system is the photo identifiable X900+OPUS, which is a dual frequency, triple constellation GNSS receiver capable of cm positioning of the project at 200 km in absolute geodetic space. The secondary X20+ receivers (also photo identifiable) are then the cost effective project ground control points for orthorectification, project verification, and other high accuracy positional tasks.
The UAV GC kit is available through the existing CHC distribution channel worldwide.
