Geneq Introduces New Multi-constellation GNSS Receiver for Survey

Geneq has announced the F90, a multi-constellation GNSS receiver with very high level of technology integration. The new product will fulfil the current surveyor’s demands in terms of performance, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. F90 tracks multi-constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou) and can maximise the acquisition and tracking process with all-in-view GNSS satellite frequencies. Providing maximum performance for accuracy and real-time measurements, F90 also supports RTK correction service, including RTX service that can get centimetre accuracy without a base station. The F90, with its advanced technology, ensures high performance even in harsh environments such as under heavy canopy. Combining GNSS, 4G, Bluetooth... (read more)

First Flyers Announced for ASPRS UAS Mapping 2015 Reno Symposium

UAS flyers are signing up to participate in the 2nd Annual UAS Mapping Test Flights. Ten firms have already expressed their interest in putting their systems through their paces, and many more firms are expected to join in. Flights will occur at Turf Farm outside of Reno, Nevada, USA, which hosted the test flights at the 2014 event. The organising committee already has compiled a varied programme. Saturday-Sunday, 26-27 September: Test/calibration courses will be established for the UAS Mapping Test Flights to include ground surveyed targets, radiometric targets, undulating surfaces, “surprise” targets, and simulated flight restricted areas.  Areas will be...

New INS/GNSS Solution to Increase Productivity of UAV-based Surveying

SBG Systems will present for the first time at AUVSI’s Xponential show in Chicago, USA, the Quanta UAV Series, a new line of inertial navigation systems (INS) dedicated to UAV-based surveying integrators. As SBG Systems aims to give UAV surveyors more autonomy for additional survey lines, the company has designed a small and low-power inertial navigation system offered on two levels of accuracy. Quanta UAV and Quanta UAV Extra have been developed for compact Lidar to high-end beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) mapping solutions. Both solutions provide precise orientation and centimeter level position data delivered both in real-time and post-processing. This direct geo-referencing solution eliminates... (read more)

EnsoMOSAIC 7.5 Released

MosaicMill, Finland, has released EnsoMOSAIC 7.5 for aerial triangulation and orthomosaicking with new management of coordinate systems, which allows user to freely define and set map projections. At the same time a new data transfer function from EnsoMOSAIC to Espa 3D (EnsoMOSAIC 3D) was launched to enable use of camera self-calibration for high-accuracy elevation points and terrain models. These enhancements are available for image processing of both UAV and traditional flights. Also a new version of NavCam flight control software for manned flights was released with support for Novatel GPS with Omnistar corrections. (read more)
