Kespry, the aerial intelligence platform provider, announced, it has enhanced the Kespry Drone 2 with higher performance features that deliver significantly greater accuracy and reliability.
Kespry Drone 2 to better address a wide range of industrial applications, including better survey-grade precision, including mining, architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) markets. The new Drone 2 now achieves four to six times the accuracy of the previous Kespry Drone System.
“Customers are looking for a complete drone solution that provides survey grade accuracy, without sacrificing speed and convenience,” said George Mathew, CEO and chairman of Kespry. “ The enhancements to the Kespry Drone 2 – bringing centimeter-level accuracy – exemplify how Kespry is innovating the industrial drone space through its Aerial Intelligence Platform.”
By adding a high-performance ground receiver, the Kespry Drone 2s can deliver accuracy of two to 10 centimetres. The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) base station receiver serves as a single survey control point. During a flight, imagery from the Drone 2s and data from the base station are collected simultaneously. Both data sets are automatically uploaded for processing in the Kespry Cloud where accurate survey-grade data is automatically generated.
Such degrees of accuracy are critical for mine planning, determining boundary lines, positioning underground utility cables and pipes, and other survey-grade applications. The single ground control point simplifies survey applications as it eliminates the need for multiple control points and additional manual measurements in the survey process.
