Trimble Expands Portfolio of OEM Products for High-Accuracy DG on UAVs

Trimble has expanded its portfolio of OEM products with the introduction of GNSS-Inertial Systems for Direct Georeferencing (DG) on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs): the Trimble APX-15-EI UAV, Trimble APX-18 UAV, and Trimble APX-20 UAV.

Direct Georeferencing with the systems allows the location of image elements collected by Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and hyperspectral sensors to be accurately computed without extensive networks of ground control points, reducing costs while maintaining accuracy to produce maps.

New High-End GNSS Simulator Unveiled by Rohde & Schwarz at ION GNSS+ 2017

Today, an increasing number of GNSS receivers are able to process signals from diverse navigation systems such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo or BeiDou in several frequency bands — and in some cases with several antennas in parallel — in order to improve positioning accuracy. Accuracy can be further improved with differential GNSS (DGNSS) techniques.
