Product Name

NEXUS 800 Multisensor Unmanned Aerial System (UAS)

 Sensor Payload


 Directly Georeferenced Point Cloud Data  


Geotagging of Imagery


Real time Geotagging of Thermal Images

UAS Total System Uncertainty (Accuracy)

High & Moderate Reflective Surfaces

X,Y = ± 3 cm,   Z = ± 5 cm

@ 40 m altitude (Examples of surfaces with High Reflectivity: Concrete, Granite, Sand)

Using 4 channels (±3°) Using more channels will increase uncertainty.

Low or Poorly Reflective Surfaces

X,Y = ± 5 cm,   Z = ± 9 cm

@ 40 m altitude (Examples of surfaces with Low Reflectivity: Asphalt, Wood, Dark Soils)
