HYPACK - Working with the Nexus-800
Posted by Jerry Knisley on 30 March 2017 12:40 PM

In the month of March the HYPACK Technical Support Team reached a few milestones related to the Nexus-800. The first is that we now have a staff member that has passed the Part 107 exam for flying Small Unmanned Aircraft. Christian Shaw has his FAA certification and has spent the past week working with a customer flying the Nexus-800 in various survey conditions to better understand from a support point of view the questions that will arise. Christian has worked with the customer to develop a work flow for computing volumes that will make the process easy to follow for the end user.



During the time with the customer several sites were surveyed.

A typical survey required around 20 minutes after arrival to set up the system and conduct all of the preflight checks, 10 minutes of flight time, 20 minutes of tear down and pack up. That made for about an hour onsite to collect the data. When processing all that was required was to load the data into the Editor and run filters once. To get to the final stage of looking at the client view in the Web browser took total of 1 hour of office time. The Nexus-800 recorded 1.9 million XYZ points in 10 minutes on a single channel in an area that is 1,514,748 square feet or about 34.5 acres. On a different site data was recorded on all 16 channels where 9.4 million XYZ data points in an 8 minute flight. The typical project for a 30 acre site records about 1 GByte of raw data for a 12 minute flight using all of the available channels.

The site below is a test site that was flown over a park. The flight lasted 8 minutes and recorded 13 million XYZ points.
