The type of data you want to collect and analyze will determine the sensor required for Trinity loads. Each payload option for the Trinity includes a payload compartment with a Payload Management Board (PMB) for triggering and geotagging controlled by the autopilot. The PMB combines sensors with an autopilot and a battery. In addition, it serves as a data logger, monitoring the actual energy consumption of the sensors, which allows us to mix and match each trigger point with the necessary flight data.
Survey Payload Compartment (SPC)
The Sony UMC-R10C 20.1MP (APS-C, (23.2 x 15.4mm) Exmor® CMOS) sensor is the sensor we recommend for applications such as geodesy and mapping, archeology, mining, storage, geotechnical engineering, GIS, Disaster Control, Civil Engineering and Forestry. It is characterized by good internal orientation, low distortion and fast shutter speeds necessary for our UAVs.
True RGB orthophotomaps (DOP), digital terrain models (DTM), digital surface models (DSM), dense RGB point clouds (eg XYZ, LAS), 3D models (eg OBJ, DXF, PLY, STA).
Agriculture Payload Compartment (APC)
Our NDVI sensors provide accurate multi-band data for wide-range agricultural remote sensing. We currently support MicaSense and Tetracam sensors in the NDVI application area. Depending on customer requirements, the sensors can also be combined with RGB cameras to cover a greater range of functions (CPC).
Mica Sens RedEdge-M is an absolute powerhouse and at the same time a very compact camera perfect for our VTOL UAVs. At the same time, it captures five narrow spectral bands and uses the change in plant reflectance at the border of the red and near-infrared spectra. Global snapshot design creates distortion-free images on any platform. With RedEdge M, the user is not only able to determine conventional vegetation indices such as NDVI, NDRE or SAVI, but can also draw conclusions about the health of the crops thanks to the additional RedEdge band. This provides a more accurate measurement of not only vigor but also plant health.
Tetracam ADC Snap
Equipped with Tetracam Snap 80 gram NIR-RED / GREEN Multispectral Imaging System with Snap Electronic Global Shutter. NIR bands enable this sensor to capture the amount of near infrared radiation that is reflected by a surface, such as soil or a leaf; useful for applications such as calculating indices such as the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).
CPC Professional Package
This bundle combines RGB and NDVI sensors and offers the best of both worlds. It is ideal for applications that require advanced agricultural analytics such as growth and health monitoring, volume calculation and insurance projects.
True RGB and multispectral orthophotomaps (DOP), NDVI maps, application maps (ISO-XML), HiRes digital terrain models (DTM), HiRes digital surface models (DSM), dense RGB point clouds (e.g. XYZ, LAS), 3D models (e.g. OBJ, DXF, PLY, STA), tree counting, plant counting, plant height monitoring etc.
