Technidrone, Spanish drone manufacturer company, has put on the market MAPKER multicopter, the first compact drone of high autonomy for photogrammetric applications.
This equipment has been designed to cover the needs of drones of this type and size, since the current equipments does not usually exceed 20 minutes of autonomy. The Mapker has an autonomy of 55 minutes, surpassing the existing options in the market. This autonomy has been possible thanks to the reduced weight of the equipment, which has been achieved using additive manufacturing and composites of great lightness.
In this way, it is possible to cover areas up to 100-120 hectares in a single flight, with a resolution of 1-3 centimeters, something unthinkable until now with a multirotor equipment.
The main objective of this equipment is to perform photogrammetric flights for the capture of information for different professional fields such as agriculture, mining, thermography, .... Highlights its ease of use, since it allows to realize totally autonomous flights, concept denominated like 'click and fly'.
Its versatility allows to change the sensors with great ease, adapting to the needs of each project, being able to integrate sensors of different characteristics like RGB, thermal, multispectral, ...
Its small dimensions (470 x 470 x 270 mm) and light weight of 3.5 kg, makes it very easy to transport compared to the current systems of high autonomy, since these have large dimensions and weight.
For jobs that require high accuracy, it has an optional GNSS system that is based on the PPK system to achieve this centimetric accuracy needed in many projects.
