UNMANNED GROUND ROVER
Rover is a semi-autonomous 4-wd ground rover designed for data collection in harsh and hazardous environments. Rover can be operated manually via remote control or be programmed to run autonomous routes using ArduPilots Mission Planner software and GPS waypoint navigation.
The Rover is specifically designed for endurance, versatility, speed and modularity. The rover was integrated with a Pixhawk flight controller, a Ronin-MX gimbal and an DSLR RGB camera capable of streaming live data back to the ground control station.
DJI PHANTOM 4 RTK WITH BASE STATION
The Phantom 4 RTK Quadcopter with D-RTK 2 GNSS Mobile Base Station from DJI is a Phantom 4 quadcopter with additional GPS technology that is designed to deliver centimeter-level accurate mapping that can be extremely useful for surveying, construction sites, and inspections.
The Phantom 4 RTK aircraft has a built-in DJI Onboard D-RTK, providing high-precision data for centimeter-level positioning when used with Network RTK service. Raw satellite observations and exposure event records can be used for post-processed kinematic (PPK) differential corrections.
The Phantom 4 RTK can hover and fly in extremely low altitude and indoor environments and provides multi-directional obstacle sensing and vision positioning functions. Obstacles detection and avoidance in large range and landing protection enhance flight safety.
The Phantom 4 RTK is equipped with a 24 mm (35 mm format equivalent) wide angle camera, high-precision and anti-shake gimbal, 1-inch CMOS sensor, mechanical shutter to offer the best in aerial photo analysis. Built into the remote controller is the latest DJI OcuSync technology with enhanced anti-interference capability to deliver a more stable and smoother video downlink.
D-RTK 2 Mobile Station fully supports GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and GALILEO signals. Easy and quick to set up, the DRTK 2 Mobile Station provides real-time differential data for drones to achieve centimeter-level positioning accuracy. The built-in high-gain antenna offers better signal reception from more satellites even when obstructions are present.
DJI M210V2 WITH CADENCE REMOTE AND CRYSTAL SKY MONITOR
The flight controller provides a safe and reliable flight experience. A flight recorder stores critical data from each flight. Dual IMUs and barometers design provides redundancy. The aircraft can hover and fly in extremely low altitude and indoor environments, and provides multi-directional obstacle sensing and vision positioning functions.
Air Sense makes you aware of nearby aircraft in the surrounding airspace to ensure safety. The safety beacons on both the top and the bottom of the aircraft allow the aircraft to be identified at night or in low light conditions.
Time sync system continuously aligns the flight controller, camera, GPS module, RTK module for the M210 RTK V2, as well as payloads or onboard accessories. The position data is fixed to the center of the CMOS for precise geotagging when using DJI payloads.
OcuSync 2.0 is the low-latency long range (up to 5 mi (8 km), FCC) HD downlink. Support of 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz ensures a more reliable connection in environments with more interference. The AES-256 encryption keeps your data transmission secure so you can be sure that your critical information stays safe.
Cadence Remote provides up to five analog control channels with over ten customizable buttons, improving overall control efficiency. Its design offers antenna interchangeability where a high-gain antenna can augment the power of DJI Lightbridge technology, significantly increasing overall anti-interference and image quality.
DJI MAVIC PRO ENTERPRISE DUAL
The Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual has both an infrared sensor and a standard camera. The infrared camera allows for temperature measurements to be taken at the center of the field of view.
With OcuSync 2.0 the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual can easily transmit 1080P video feed through solid walls. With a maximum transmission range of 5 miles the days of the video cutting out or losing connection are a thing of the past. GPS timestamping records the time, date, and GPS location of the images or videos taken in flight. This extra piece of data provides useful information on the locations of people, objects, or buildings in the images or videos captured
Local Data Mode- feature in the DJI Pilot App which, when activated, will stop the user’s connected mobile device from sending or receiving any data over the internet.
Equipped with DJI AirSense, designed to help ensure drones remain conflict free in the airspace. Aimed to improve a pilots situational awareness and enhances airspace safety by automatically alerting drone pilots of ADS-B signals from nearby airplanes and helicopters and by sending real-time positioning alerts through the DJI Pilot flight control app.
Secured with 24 GB of onboard data storage and password protection, creating accountability for all access to the drone’s functions and stored data.
DJI INSPIRE 2
The DJI Inspire 2 has can go from 0 to 50 mph (80 kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58 mph (94 kph) with a max descent speed of 9m/s. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S), while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures.
Flight Autonomy has been revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2, providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. Increased intelligence adds multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration.
The latest update to DJI Lightbridge technology has an effective transmission distance of up to 4.3mi (7km)* and is capable of delivering both 1080p/720p video as well as the FPV view to pilot and camera operator. Users can also switch between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz** control frequencies to cut through noise for greater signal stability.
A new wireless HD image transmission technology sends video information from the master controller to the slave controller and the two controllers can be up to 100m apart without loss of image quality.
DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO V1
The Phantom 4 Pro shoots at 4K at up to 60 frames per second and captures 20megapixel photos that look crisper and cleaner than ever thanks to the new 1-inch CMOS sensor. Its mechanical shutter and auto focus create an even better aerial shooting experience
The flight controller has been updated to provide a safer, more reliable flight experience. A new flight recorder stores critical data from each flight. A system of visual sensors enhances hovering precision when flying indoors or in environments where GPS is unavailable. Dual IMUs and compasses design provides redundancy.
The low-latency long range (up to 4.3mi (7km)) HD downlink is powered by an enhanced version of DJI LIGHTBRIDGE. Support of 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz ensures a more reliable connection in environments with more interference.
