World’s first fixed-wing UAV integration of the MicaSense Twin Digicam System – sUAS Information



Gilching / Germany: As a producer of superior VTOL UAV methods for high-precision surveying duties within the skilled subject it is usually in our curiosity to supply our prospects the absolute best sensors together with our UAV methods. It’s subsequently our pleasure to supply prospects the brand-new Twin Digicam System from MicaSense as a payload possibility for our Trinity F90+ UAV.

MicaSense Twin Digicam Imaging System: Double the spectral decision with half the effort in a single payload.

By integrating two five-band cameras, the RedEdge-MX and the brand new RedEdge-MX Blue, the Twin Digicam System allows essentially the most superior distant sensing and vegetation analysis purposes. This digital camera possibility completes the accessible portfolio of digital camera payloads for skilled customers of Quantum-Programs drones.

RGB and multispectral sensors have been accessible because the preliminary launch. As well as, the excessive payload of the TrinityF90+ permits RGB and multispectral sensors to be mixed with the RedEdge-MX and Sony UMC-R10C digital camera to cowl much more superior eventualities from skilled customers.

With MicaSense Altum, our prospects have lengthy had a extremely built-in multispectral sensor at their disposal. Consisting of a radiometric thermal digital camera and 5 high-resolution slim bands, Altum produces superior thermal, multispectral and high-resolution imagery in a single flight for superior analytics.

Primarily based on the already built-in sensors and the pliability of Quantum-Programs’ UAVs, the mixing of the brand new Twin Digicam System consisting was achieved in document time!

“Whereas all of our sensors produce repeatable outputs with optimized GSD, the extra spectral info captured by the Twin Digicam System makes it particularly suited to AI/Machine Studying workflows. Now, built-in with the Trinity F90+, the mixed resolution provides prospects the utmost functionality in plant cover evaluation and classification duties over massive areas.” – Justin McAllister, CTO of MicaSense

To this point, using this twin sensor has been reserved solely for multicopters. The mixing right into a small fixed-wing UAV opens up fully new potentialities by way of vary and ideally saves loads of time by way of a totally built-in PPK course of.

PPK 100% supported for all payload integrations with no added price

In contrast to different accessible mapping options, we’re proud to supply our personal PPK resolution for all accessible sensor payloads together with the Twin Digicam System. Because of this seamless integration there is no such thing as a have to take care of third occasion options within the PPK space – a giant benefit!

Every of our drones comes customary with our iBase Floor Station and may generate top quality GPS information out of the field. PPK is subsequently a fundamental characteristic of our methods at no extra price to the shopper. Mixed with the broad protection capabilities and user-friendly dealing with the money and time saved is a large profit!

iBase is an multi function GNSS reference station. It robotically logs GNSS reference measurements on the bottom to a file on a micro SD card. This file allows QBase3D to do PPK processing of the collected survey information with a absolute accuracy of 2- 5 cm.

Within the occasion of help, prospects thus have a direct benefit over third-party options, as now we have direct entry to our PPK integration. Moreover, particular person PPK modifications are additionally potential due to vertical integration. Merely contact us on this regard.

Appropriate with all TrinityF90+ UAVs

To make the most of the brand new payload, no technical modifications to already delivered TrinityF90+ are crucial. A corresponding replace for QBase3D shall be accessible earlier than the deliberate launch on the finish of Could 2020.

The MicaSense Twin Digicam System is accessible for order finish of Could by way of Quantum-Programs companions around the globe.

About Quantum-Programs

Quantum-Programs GmbH was based in 2015 in Munich and is specialised within the growth and manufacturing of computerized, electrical vertical take-off and touchdown (eVTOL) fixed-wing drones for all kinds of use circumstances. The 50+ staff (rising) are working intensively on combining vary and electrical effectivity with the power to vertically take-off and land with out extra tools.

CEO Florian Seibel: “Our ardour is the continual growth of trade main VTOL aircrafts. With our able to function methods we serve a variety of consumers. We assist to extend yields in agriculture, fly Three-D reconstruction missions, do tactical mapping for safety forces or present mission crucial video footage in actual time to governmental customers. Made in Germany, non ITAR and no again doorways in soft- or hardware as all of our flight planning and autopilot hard- and software program is designed in home”.

Distinctive characteristic – eVTOL fixed-wing system

The eVTOL fixed-wing UAVs of Quantum-Programs unite the advantages of helicopters and airplanes in a single new modern plane. This makes it a recreation changer because it has each, the handy dealing with of a helicopter and the subtle aerodynamics of an airplane.

The methods subsequently can cowl as much as 100 occasions extra space than common multi copter drones however are equally simple to regulate and function. No catapults, runways or touchdown nets wanted.
