Trimble has just announced they have partnered with Delair-Tech and microdrones as their official suppliers for UASs. On the coattails of that announcement come four proven mapping solutions, or mdMapper, including the md4-1000 in yellow (pictured right) to commemorate the new partnership.
mdMapper200: Compact but robust, the md4-200 aircraft at the heart of this solution is lightweight and easy to transport – yet tough enough to stand up to rough weather and daily use. mdMapper200 is a reliable, professional solution that allows surveyors to map up to 30 hectares (74 acres) in one flight. It is integrated with a lightweight 20.1 megapixel camera and Nadir mount.
mdMapper1000: Featuring the microdrones md4-1000 to cover more area per flight, users enjoy the longest flying time (30-45 minutes, depending on conditions) and stability on the market, as well as resistance to rough winds, harsh weather, hot temperatures, high voltage, and strong magnetic fields. It is integrated with a 24 megapixel camera and Nadir mount.
mdMapper 1000DG: Direct georeferencing technology sets a new standard of efficiency. With mdMapper1000DG, surveyors achieve the highest level of data accuracy possible using fewer ground control points – or no ground control points at all and less overlap. Cover up to 90 hectares (223 acres) in one flight. It is integrated with a 42.4 megapixel camera and Nadir mount.
mdMapper 30000DG: This UAV can fly quicker, reach higher, and carry more. With a flight time up to 45 minutes, a payload of 3,000 – 7,000 grams (6.5 – 15 pounds), this solution opens up an entire new world of flexibility and opportunity. It is integrated with a true medium-format camera with up to 100 megapixel performance, direct georeferencing technology and a Nadir mount.
Optional Accessory Kits are also available. These packages allow users to broaden their capabilities on site or to serve new markets with features like five spectral bands for precision agriculture, thermal data to detect heat issues and an inspection feature for buildings and infrastructure.
“We offer the best range of products for aerial mapping using multi-copters,” said microdrones president, Vivien Heriard Dubreuil. “We’re looking forward to helping many Trimble surveying customers produce exceptional results on the job.”
