Optech announces the imminent release of the Lynx SG1 Mobile Mapper (Survey Grade), which replaces the Lynx M1 as the flagship model of Optech’s mobile product line. Lynx SG1, a 600-kHz dual sensor head system, raises the bar for mobile surveying by collecting up to 1.2 million measurements per second at survey-grade precision, spread over an unobstructed 360° field of view with industry-leading scanner speeds for even point distribution. The ability to control several integrated cameras, including the Point Grey Ladybug®, adds further value to a system that is already considered the premium choice for mobile surveys where accuracy, precision and resolution are critical.
Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today its next generation Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)—the Trimble® UX5 aerial imaging rover with the Trimble Access™ aerial imaging application. The new solution builds upon the strengths of its predecessor, the Trimble Gatewing X100, to offer enhanced image quality and intuitive workflows. Combined with the Trimble Business Center photogrammetry office software module, the Trimble UX5 is the first complete UAS photogrammetric mapping solution specifically designed for surveyors and geospatial professionals.
Leica Geosystems is pleased to announce that the new Z/I DMC IIe large format frame camera series can be operated fully integrated inside a Leica Geosystems aircraft installation. The Z/I DMC IIe is based on the proven sensor design of the Z/I DMC II using large format single CCD technology and includes integrated Novatel GNSS/IMU technology. It includes increased airborne storage of 4.8 TByte using four Leica MM30 SSD storage modules, supports the Leica PAV100 stabilized mount and has an integrated Leica FlightPro sensor management system.
South Australia-based DroneMetrex reliably and repeatedly maps at unprecedented 25 mm absolute topographic accuracy in height via its in-house developed TopoDrones. So far, no other manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has claimed such an accuracy, neither relative, nor absolute.
Spirent Communications, the leader in testing navigation and positioning systems, today announced the launch of the Spirent GSS6425 multi-frequency GNSS record and playback (RPS) test system. It provides customers with RF recordings for more constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS), more frequencies (L1, L2, L5), wider bandwidth (30MHz) and more features to support a wide range of positioning and timing test applications.
