System description

Aerial photography complex with vertical take-off and landing. Complex takes-off from a site with a radius of 5 m, can work in a confined space and accurately bend the relief. With Geoscan 401 Geodesy, you can survey high-rise structures (pipes and utility poles), objects with pronounced relief and significant altitude differences (quarries) or vertical surfaces (facades). Due to the onboard geodetic GNSS receiver, the obtaned images allow the creation of the precise georeferenced orthophotos and 3D models.

Ground control station
Ground control station

Automatic control

System is equipped with ground control station with preinstalled Geoscan Planner software.

Program allows to perform preflight preparation, select the preferred surveying parameters, launch the UAV and select the landing point. During the flight task execution, the operator is provided with telemetry and information about the conditions of the UAV.

After the flight completion the received images can be downloaded to the program interface and any image of the flight along the route may be viewed.
