Trimble Expands Portfolio of OEM Products for High-Accuracy DG on UAVs

Trimble has expanded its portfolio of OEM products with the introduction of GNSS-Inertial Systems for Direct Georeferencing (DG) 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.
