Event 38 Unmanned Systems, Inc. has announced the launch of its latest aircraft model, the E455. It is as a premier fixed wing, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) drone. At 55lbs, the E455 offers a 2-hour flight endurance on battery power alone, it is designed to carry a diverse range of payloads, including mapping sensors, LiDAR, and EO/IR surveillance sensors, meeting the demands of various applications while remaining under the 55lb Part 107 limit. One of its key features is its open protocol payload bay.

Virtual Surveyor unveils Photogrammetry App

The Terrain Creator app photogrammetrically processes UAV images to generate survey-grade terrains that then transfer into the traditional Virtual Surveyor workspace. Terrain Creator aims to simplify the aerial photogrammetry process by offering a visual and intuitive application to produce an orthomosaic and a digital surface model (DSM) from UAV photos. The software was originally developed to bridge the gap between UAV photogrammetric processing applications and engineering design packages. Prior to this new release, users had to rely on third-party software to generate elevation models and an orthomosaic on which they could work with the Virtual Surveyor toolset.

Advancing drone thermal mapping

Topodrone recently completed its R&D and released a new drone thermal mapping solution – TOPODRONE PT61 camera can perform detailed surveys and deliver thermal orthomosaic maps obtaining accurate 3D models. It is a camera with 61 MP resolution and a built-in thermal imager, RGB lenses with different focal lengths, a built-in GNSS module and IMU, as well as API for integration with any UAV. The new photogrammetry solution was initially developed in collaboration with AGROWING.
