"Thanks everyone! @Alexandre - we want the footprints too, but we find that there's too much delay between a camera message and the actual picture being taken. We're characterizing that delay and may be able to add such a feature in the…"

Event 38 Mission Planning & Mapping Workflow Updates

Posted on May 13, 2015 at 8:51am 20 Comments

For anyone using Mission Planner as a ground control station, check out these additions we've made to streamline MP to our workflow. We typically run mapping missions on fixed wing aircraft at Event 38, so these are tailored to that use, but some of our features are more general…

New NGB Filters and Higher Resolution Camera at Event 38

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 12:09pm 20 Comments

We've been hard at work improving our popular NGB filter glass over the summer and the latest design is finally in! This design cuts off higher wavelength NIR light around 770nm. That reduces the amount of light crossing over to the Green and Blue channels which are also sensitive to NIR light,…

NDVI Post-Processing in Fiji

Posted on February 24, 2014 at 1:14pm 16 Comments

A lot of people have been asking me how we post-process imagery coming from one of our, or any other company's, NGB converted cameras. There's a very easy way to run this processing thanks to Fiji and the Photo Monitoring plugin by Ned Horning. I've just written up a quick getting started guide to this…

New, Higher Performance NDVI Converted Cameras

Late last year we released our first version NDVI converted cameras using Schott BG3 filters. Using those filters we were able to generate pseudo NDVI images with a single camera, building off the work of the Public Lab project. After working…

Dear, good afternoon.

I bought the Skywalker E382 and I need your help.
Read all information http://event38.wikispaces.com page and follow the manual configuration.
I'm having trouble configuring Dragonlink 2 Long Range (433Mhz) UHF Tx and Rx System and RFD900 Radio Modems (900Mhz).
My setup for Skywalker E382 is as follows:
Skywalker E382 168mm.
ArduPilot Mega 2.6 Set (external compass).
Turnigy 9X 9cH (2.4Ghz) Transmitter w / Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware).
My question is:
Do you have a manual, tutorial or video of equipment configuration? The frequencies of the equipment are correct? Do you have manual, tutorial or video installation of radio base station ground? Which types of antennas you use for radio base station ground?

Thank you.

Sincerely

Juliano Costa.
