GPS Precison Packages

Standard Package

Geo-hNAV™ is a hybrid dual-GPS-aided inertial navigation system which delivers consistent position and attitude measurement accuracy. The Geo-hNAV combines RTK-enabled dual-frequency, onboard data recording, and Geo-Pointer dual-antenna heading system to provide the highest levels of accuracy. For drones, a precise heading is derived from GPS measurements using two GPS antennas rigidly mounted 1 meter apart on the platform. Under dynamic conditions, the combination of GPS and IMU provides enhanced position, velocity, and attitude measurements.

 

Real-Time Kinematic Bundle is a software and hardware solution to allow real-time GPS corrected positional data up to centimeter-level accuracy ** 

** Absolution Accuracy is dependent on absolute atmospheric conditions, satellite quality, and other related factors. 

Post-Processing Kinematic Bundle

PPK is a software and hardware solution to all post processed GPS corrected solution up to centimeter-level accuracy **

** Absolution Accuracy is dependent on absolute atmospheric conditions, satellite quality, and other related factors. 

Supporting Software

Real-time Viewer is a radio and visualization tool to show real-time LiDAR point density mapping.  Critical to determining you are collecting quality data for your project.

UgCS Pro/Enterprise is a 3D flight planning and flight control system offering custom tools, obstacle overlays, custom digital maps, digital elevation maps updates, and multiple aircraft control.  ***

*** UgCS Free/One have limited functionality and range, and will not operate near any airport, heliport, etc.  

Platform Integrations

DJI M600 Pro is our most affordable platform.  We currently have stock mountings and packages for the GEOMMS 16 and GEOMMS32

Universal Drone Mount.  If you have a drone that can lift 12lbs and has a standard cinematography rail system we have a universal mount with built-in stabilization.  Talk to our sales representative for details.

Car Mount.  For GeoMMS16 and GEOMMS32 we offer a simple 8 magnetic or suction cup mounting system for mobile capture.  Simply change the configuration file, mount to the car plate and you can use the same equipment in the air or on the ground.   Talk to our sales representative for details.

US Made Multi-rotor Systems.  We have a small number of specialty vendors with extended range, maximum legal lift capacity, and added capacity (additional cameras, radios, etc).  These options require longer purchase lead times.  Our staff can take you through all the options.

Fixed Wing- Extended Range.  Coming in summer 2018. Our drone integration is built on NASA’s Universal Traffic Management (UTM) standard. We offer this to customers operating outside of the US, Canada, and Europe, in countries that allow Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) operations.   The power and wings have been specifically designed for these industrial grade lidar sensors.  if you need extended range and endurance with very high point cloud densities then this is an option for you.

Training

We currently offer two training packages.

  • Basic LiDAR Training.  This is our basic course.  We cover LiDAR basics, full setup, and checklists, preflight procedures, basic flight operations, GPS correction, initial LiDAR post-processing, and visualization.  We do not teach US FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Training in this course.
  • Workflow optimization. This is all the elements listed above, however, we also include 40 hours of process consulting, build our initial checklists for your main collection requirement, and provide additional flight training.  This option is dependent on the drone being purchased and the application desired.

 

Drone Accessories

  • Batteries and Chargers.  This is probably the most overlooked item.  The drone is relatively inexpensive but depending on the volume of operations batteries can add a significant cost.
  • Other Camera. Depending on the use case and drone platform we do offer other cameras as part of the package.
  • Carrying Cases.  We work with local case vendors to get the cases you need for your drone, batteries and chargers, and your ground control station.

Data Processing Subscriptions. 

For our service providers that do not have the geospatial experience, you can work with our remote sensing and geospatial project managers to get your customers the products they need.

    Post Processing Software

    We have tested dozens of vendors. Every industry is different and most vendors’ workflows are aligned with a particular industry.  We have special arrangements with LiDAR software analysis tools.  Since the software will vary based on your industry and end users, please have a conversation with our data analysts so we can match you with the right work management system.   

    Best Uses

    Some Typical Applications!

    “We have clients mapping long narrow tracks of land along powerlines, pipeline, and transportation lanes.  Besides topographically mapping, they are modeling the structures, categorizing them, and loading them into ARC-GIS software” Coridor Mapping

    “LiDAR does more than map land.  It can map biomass.  From this information, individual canopy tops can be filters and counted.  This allows a wealth of information ranging from yeild to burn maps, a wild fire managemetn tool Precision Forestry

    “Surveyors are starting to use this technology.  The speed and volume of geodetic information are amazing.   Cover hard to access and potentially dangerous terrain with ease.  No interpolation between survey lines.  Finally, it is all digital meaning it loads directly into your BIM or CAD software, allowing faster product turn around times. ” Land Mangement

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How accruate is the LiDAR System?

    Accuracy varies depending on several factors.

    Relative accuracy is a function of which LiDAR head and how far away from the surface you are scanning, typical relative accuracy is around 1 to 3 cm.

    Absolute Accuracy we have to add the GPS solutions.  GeoMMS hNAV system with just WAAS will get you 15cm of absolute accuracy.  By doing Post Processing Kinetic 5 to 6 cm RMSE is possible.  For more on accuracy, please see our info on LiDAR accruacy under resources.

    Can I mount on a car?
    Yes, we have car mounting packages.  Since the GEOMMS series is independent of platform, all you ahve to do is load the car configuration file and attach to the car mount is all you have to do.
    Can I mount to a fixed wing droen or regular helicopter/ aircraft?
    Yes you can but performance may be degraded depending on the application.  There are a lot of manufactures attaching their LiDAR on drones.  if you are just doing bare earth mapping and need just a few points per meter squared then this option will work for you.  if you need mroe resolution, talk to our sales staff about pre-ordering one of our fixed wing options, designed to fly at slow speeds.
    Can I map underwater?
    No, mapping underwater is a two wavelength Lidar mapping process and requires different wavelengths to penetrate water.
    What cameras can I use with this system ?
    If you are buying a DJI Mounted system, you can use any DJI camera supported by the M600.  For other cameras or other drones, we can custom mount it for you.  Talk to our sales staff on custom options.
