SmartPlanes and Septentrio launch a new high performance PPK-unit for the Freya drone system at The Commercial UAV-show in London 2016
October 19, 2016
Skellefteå, Sweden – Smartplanes, a producer of high-end professional drone systems for survey-grade photogrammetric mapping, and Septentrio, a producer of high performance satellite navigation products will be launching a new post processing kinematic (PPK) GNSS unit at the The Commercial UAV-show in London.
“The Smartplanes PPK device is a high performance post processing kinematic GNSS unit that eliminates the time consuming task of establishing and surveying ground control points.” said Smartplanes’ CEO Simon Nathanson. “The Septentrio GeoTagZ software product streamlines the post processing of recorded GNSS data and the geotagging of photos. The system is capable of generating camera station coordinates with very high accuracy even in challenging conditions” said Aldert Kluft, Sales Manager of Septentrio.
In an accuracy assessment study performed by independent geoconsulting experts SCIOR, the average absolute accuracy (RMSE) of photogrammetrically measured point targets was found to be 18 mm in both plane and height. The spherical error was 26 mm. A white paper reporting on the study is available here.
The Smartplanes PPK-unit has been tested by operational end-users in North America, Asia and Europe since June and is now shipping to customers world-wide. You can read more about the PPK-unit here.
