Australia: Drone manufacturer, ScientificAerospace in partnership with mapping experts DroneMetrex has developed a unique photogrammetric mapping solution that will revolutionise the Geospatial Industry.
Building on the advantages of ScientificAerospace’s industry-proven experience over eight years in six continents, their uniquely designed and technically advanced multi-rotor drone is a perfect synergy with DroneMetrex’s world-leading mapping accuracy technology to produce the world’s most accurate, safest and easiest complete photogrammetric mapping system – the TopoDrone-4Scight (TD-4Scight).
The TD-4Scight easily collects photogrammetric mapping data of unprecedented accuracy (20mm horizontal and better than 25mm vertical) for rapid integration into a wide range of industries including Surveying, Urban Mapping, Civil Engineering, Mining, Agriculture, Bridge and Dam Wall Mapping, Post Disaster Mapping, Waste Management, Recycling and other industries.
ScientificAerospace Managing Director Richard Pace said the TD-4Scight will be invaluable for many of his customers.
“The new mapping system is very affordable and it is easy to use without complicated setup. It requires minimal training and it is easy to transport,” he said. The TD-4Scight can be used almost anywhere including urban areas and difficult-to-access areas because it is a vertical take-off and landing drone rather than a fixed wing.
Unique vented ducts of the rotors guarantee that TD-4Scight is the most efficient, stable VTOL drone mapping system, especially in stronger winds. They also provide safety advantages because of no exposed blades. The TD-4Scight can also easily capture aerial data in spark free safety conscious applications, because of its non-conductive airframe and brushless motors.
Users will benefit from a whole set of the TD-4Scight unique features such as mapping without ground control points. The TopoDrone-4Scight goes with PPK Direct Georeferencing Solution which logs all the high precision GPS satellites (from US, Europe, Russia and China) on board theTD-4Scight, synchronised to the nano-second with the camera shutter.
Managing Director of DroneMetrex, Thomas Tadrowski said this was the future of Geospatial Industry as it made accurate surveying and photogrammetric mapping easy.
“The new system will significantly increase surveying and mapping efficiency in response to a growing demand for fast and affordable mapping data of highest quality,” Mr Tadrowski said.
