Trimble introduced three new GNSS-Inertial Systems for Direct Georeferencing on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs): the Trimble® APX-15-EI UAV, Trimble APX-18 UAV, and Trimble APX-20 UAV. Direct Georeferencing with the systems allows the location of image elements collected by Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and hyperspectral sensors to be accurately computed without extensive networks of ground control points, reducing costs while maintaining accuracy to produce maps. Joe Hutton, Director of Inertial Technology and Airborne Products at Applanix, a Trimble Company said, “We have listened to our customers and worked very hard to come up with solutions that meet their needs, both from a technical and cost perspective.” The APX products use state-of-the-art low noise, multi-frequency Trimble Maxwell™ GNSS technology, and track all current satellite signals including GPS L1/L2/L2C/L5 and GLONASS L1/L2, QZSS, BeiDou, IRNSS and Galileo, supporting SBAS, RTK and Trimble CenterPoint® RTX positioning modes.
