MANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS
Take on larger jobs than drones
With greater agility and economy than commercial manned systems
Pre-configured payloads and workflows
The gap between enterprise systems and drones
Klau Geomatics systems and aircraft hit the ‘sweet spot’
Drones have brought aerial mapping into vogue, but there is a point of scale where they become very inefficient and costly.
Traditional manned aerial surveys have high capital costs and operational costs, and are cost effective only on very large scale.
Aerial mapping from a light aircraft with a Klau Geomatics solution is the sweet spot for many aerial capture requirements.
There is a level of complexity in setting up an aircraft for aerial mapping.
Mounting sensors on an aircraft requires certification.
Flight management is required to plan and fly the mission and trigger sensors.
Direct Georeferencing is required to enable efficient accurate data capture.
Processing and data delivery is another bottleneck.
Klau Geomatics brings the sensors, certified installation, flight management, positioning, data processing and data delivery together in an end to end solution.
Pilots and surveyors are not necessarily integrators. We do that. You do what you best, or do it even better, with a reliable acquisition system.
We can help with data processing, analytics and visual web delivery via 4DMapper.
