Fixed-wing drone surveying and geodesy solution 

Welcoming those who carry out surveying and geodesy works on large areas or data collection support for territorial planning and environmental FAE Drones developed the flying package based on FAE 1718 Fixed Wing.

FAE 1718 Fixed Wing is an automated aircraft - drone, suitable to acquire fast and accurate data covering large areas (over 500 ha) and long distances, requiring a landing zone on the ground in a straight line about 50 m, and air of about 300 m direct visibility.

It flies over an area ten times bigger than a multirotor the same size in relation to a fully charged battery.

Multirotor drone for topography and geodesy solution

A solution that offers accuracy and high resolution of the flown surface, is based on multirotors flight package.

 Performance package flight, is based on FAE 1115 Octa - Predator drone, a professional octocopter , ready to fly, requiring a space for takeoff / landing vertically of only 3 m. The drone is distinguished by power, has long fly, rigid construction carbon fiber and autonomic functions with complete GPS navigation. The drone can be configured wirelessly with a PC.

Applications - Surveying and geodesy overview

For experts in surveying and geodesy, FAE covers the need for acquisition of information by combining the provision of high-tech equipment (airphotogrammetric, GSM-LTE, electric propulsion, etc.) with specialized services (training of pilots, photographic processing, conducting flights photogrammetry, etc.), building with beneficiaries the optimum business model.

Using FAE topographical drones , can be achieved topographical georeferenced photogrammetric flights with flight plan computer-generated and executed automatically UAV. These are automated tools for fast and precise acquisition of data from the air to achieve:

  • 2D digital surface model orthophotomap .tif (topographic map)
  • Digital elevation model (DEM) DXF .asc .bil .xyz
  • 3D digital model of the surface .3ds
  • Point cloud .ply .las .obj
  • Volume calculations and dumps excavated
  • KMZ Google Earth map
  • Oblique aerial images
  • Orthorectified aerial images
  • Mapping areas with a high degree of variability (Delta, meadows, areas affected by erosion, transport and storage) with high temporal resolution
  • Coastal mapping
  • Mapping of disaster areas

FAE Drones offers tested aerial solutions for data collection, using own production drones and records in different spectral ranges (FIR, IR, visible).

The defects and the stress of the structures are highlighted by stress variations that can be captured and recorded.

Advantages of FAE Drones

  • high flight time (double compared to competition)
  • high payload - 5 kg operational, 10 kg max
  • preserves altitude versus flight (AGL) in topographical applications
  • automatically divides large areas into multiple short flights
  • 24 MPx image quality with Prime APSC sensor lens (25.1mm x 16.7)
  • head hold - Direction of the camera to the same direction
