Netherlands: Topcon Positioning Group has released Topcon SIRIUS PRO powered by MAVinci, an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). It is designed to produce the most accurate solutions for automated mapping of construction sites, pipelines, disaster areas, mines, quarries and myriad sites without regard to terrain. The system is currently available in Europe.
In 2013, Topcon Europe Positioning (TEP) entered into a strategic partnership with UAS provider MAVinci GmbH. The result of that partnership is the release of the fixed-wing UAS Topcon SIRIUS PRO powered by MAVinci. "We are excited to announce our distribution agreement with Topcon. This partnership is the ideal expansion of our global distribution network. The simple operation of our UAS from flight planning to the final orthophoto and DEM (Digital Elevation Model), allows flexible use in highly demanding environments. Its flexible assisted auto-pilot landing mode enables navigation around any unforeseen obstacles,” said Johanna Claussen, CEO at MAVinci GmbH.
