UAV with RTK eliminates ground control

Sirius Pro UAV

MAVinci’s latest offering to the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) market, the Sirius Pro UAV, offers the same 5cm accuracy as a Sirius Classic without the need for ground control points (GCPs).

Traditionally, ground control points have been required for UAS modelling applications.

It also allows areas that are difficult to access, hazardous, or very large to be aerially surveyed.

“Setting out ground control can often take more than 50% of the total project time for an aerial survey,” explained Gavin Docherty, UAS Product Manager for MAVinci’s Australasian distributor, Position Partners. “By removing this step in the process, the Sirius Pro delivers the same accuracy and reliability of data with ultimate convenience for the user.”
