With the recent news of Trimble selling off its UAS business, Trimble has entered into strategic alliances with Delair-Tech and Microdrones of Siegen, Germany. Microdrones is a leading provider of multirotor UAS solutions. Under the agreements, Delair-Tech and Microdrones will become preferred providers of both fixed-wing and multirotor UAS solutions, with Trimble providing software, data processing and deliverables to UAS operators across multiple vertical markets.
Below are brief overview of microdrones offerings:
mdMapper200: Compact but robust, the md4-200 aircraft at the heart of this solution is lightweight and easy to transport – yet tough enough to stand up to rough weather and daily use. mdMapper200 is a reliable, professional solution that allows surveyors to map up to 30 hectares (74 acres) in one flight. It is integrated with a lightweight 20.1 megapixel camera and Nadir mount. www.microdrones.com/mdmapper200
mdMapper1000: Featuring the microdrones md4-1000 to cover more area per flight, users enjoy the longest flying time (30-45 minutes, depending on conditions) and stability on the market, as well as resistance to rough winds, harsh weather, hot temperatures, high voltage, and strong magnetic fields. It is integrated with a 24 megapixel camera and Nadir mount.www.microdrones.com/mdmapper1000
mdMapper 1000DG: Direct georeferencing technology sets a new standard of efficiency. With mdMapper1000DG, surveyors achieve the highest level of data accuracy possible using fewer ground control points – or no ground control points at all and less overlap. Cover up to 90 hectares (223 acres) in one flight. It is integrated with a 42.4 megapixel camera and Nadir mount.www.microdrones.com/mdmapper1000dg
mdMapper 30000DG: This UAV can fly quicker, reach higher, and carry more. With a flight time up to 45 minutes, a payload of 3,000 – 7,000 grams (6.5 – 15 pounds), this solution opens up an entire new world of flexibility and opportunity. It is integrated with a true medium-format camera with up to 100 megapixel performance, direct georeferencing technology and a Nadir mount. www.microdrones.com/mdmapper3000dg
Optional Accessory Kits: Complementing the above packages are optional accessory kits that help professionals broaden their capabilities on site, or to expand their services to serve new markets.www.microdrones.com/mdmapper-accessories
+m (multi-spectral imaging) : captures five spectral bands for precision agriculture applications
+t (thermal mapping) : captures thermal data to detect heat issues in agriculture, environment, solar panels, or infrastructure inspection applications
+i (inspection feature): transforms your mdMapper1000 into a powerful visual inspection tool for buildings and infrastructure
“We offer the best range of products for aerial mapping using multi-copters,” said microdrones president, Vivien Heriard Dubreuil. “We’re looking forward to helping many Trimble surveying customers produce exceptional results on the job.”
