RDO Integrated Controls

The FAA Modernization Act of 2012, mandates a standardized and permanent system for governing commercial sUAS (small unmanned aerial vehicle system) in the national airspace. The FAA Part 107 rules will be a new option other than the 333 Exemption which is the only current system for commercial sUAS compliance. There are plenty of rumors about what Part 107 compliance will entail and all we have to go on are the proposed rules from the FAA. Let’s first identify some key differences between proposed Part 107 and the 333 Exemption based on the FAA publication; Overview of Small UAS Notice of Proposed Rulemaking What’s different about Part 107? No need for previously licensed FAA pilot as operator. An extra VO (Visual Observer) is not required for flights. No need for Air Traffic Control clearance in class G airspace.

Of particular focus are solutions that can be operated safely in often harsh environmental conditions. SwissDrones, which is based in the St Galler Rheintal, Switzerland, brings outstanding expertise in engineering, manufacturing, deploying and operating UAVs for earth observation, directly complementing Leica Geosystems industry- leading mapping technology. The Leica RCD30 for UAV – high accuracy mapping from UAV-based platformsAs a first, the Leica RCD30 medium format camera has been integrated into the SwissDrones Waran TC-1235 UAV. The Leica RCD30 is the world’s first medium format camera to provide superior multispectral imagery and highest accuracy. Mapping the World in 3D — with Drones? As controversial as they are, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are quickly becoming a viable tool in many industries.

Mapping the World in 3D — with Drones?

In fact, these UAVs (or drones, as they are commonly called) will soon be able to see and map the world in 3D using reality capture software. Reality capture refers to the use of technology as a tool in capturing and documenting reality in 3D. It is primarily achieved through laser scanning or photogrammetry, which is the practice of stitching together a set of images taken at multiple locations and angles to create one 3D model. The information gathered in reality capture is often stored in point clouds — which, because they contain millions of individual points of information, can be massive files that are difficult to manage.

This is where the reality capture drone comes in. These drones are coming for you in 2015 (pictures) Pix4D. DJI - The World Leader in Camera Drones/Quadcopters for Aerial Photography.

NEW RIEGL RiCOPTER VUX-SYS. To use the RiCOPTER for acquisition of high-accuracy, high-resolution laser scan and image data, the UAS is equipped with the RIEGL VUX-SYS, comprising the VUX-1 LiDAR sensor, a IMU/GNSS unit, a control unit, and up to four high-resolution cameras.

NEW RIEGL RiCOPTER VUX-SYS

The RIEGL VUX-SYS is a complete miniaturized airborne laser scanning system solution of low weight and compact size for flexible use in UAS/UAV/RPAS, helicopter, gyrocopter and ultra-light aircraft installations. The system consists of the RIEGL VUX-1 airborne laser scanner, an IMU/GNSS system, a control unit and up to 4 optional cameras. The excellent measurement performance of the VUX-1 in combination with a precise fiber optic gyroscope and GPS/GLONASS receiver results in survey grade measurement accuracy.
