In an industry where precision is not just a benefit but a necessity, Quantum-Systems has teamed up with Phase One and Trimble to deliver an advanced UAV-based mapping and surveying solution. The integration of the high-resolution Phase One P5 camera with Quantum Systems' robust Trinity Pro drone is being positioned by each company as redefining survey efficiency and accuracy in construction and surveying.
The Munich-based drone manufacturer Quantum-Systems has a history of innovation, and their latest offering is set to tackle the challenges plaguing the construction and surveying industry: tight timelines, resource scarcity, and the looming threat of costly project delays. Traditional surveying methods, although tried and tested, often fall short in today's environment, where data quality and time are of the essence.
The Trinity Pro UAV has an impressive track record of over 75,000 flight hours. It is not only lightweight but also capable of extended flight durations, a feature that can drastically boost productivity in the face of an industry-wide surveyor shortage. Capable of covering large areas with its 18 m/s ground speed and adaptable operational altitudes, the Trinity Pro presents itself as a formidable player in the realm of rapid surveying.
Enter the Phase One P5 camera, a marvel in its own right, tailored for aerial surveying with a massive 128-megapixel resolution. This camera's integration into the Trinity Pro UAV is a testament to the collaborative spirit between Quantum Systems, Phase One, and Trimble. The P5’s inclusion is not just about improved image resolution—it's about setting a new benchmark for data precision and metrical accuracy that aligns seamlessly with the Trimble Business Center workflow.
This leap in technology is heralded by Quantum Systems' Head of Commercial Sales, Robert Leake, who emphasizes the transformative nature of this integration. "By achieving such high levels of detail and accuracy, we are not just providing a new tool for the industry. We are defining a new standard," says Leake.
Michael Messerschmidt of Phase One underscores the efficiency of the P5 camera. With its metric calibration and certified quality, the camera minimizes the need for extensive post-flight processing. This means that surveyors and construction professionals can expect a more straightforward data collection process with less room for error and more time for analysis.
The synergy of the Trinity Pro's flight efficiency and the Phase One P5's calibrated imaging capabilities ensures that professionals in the field can conduct their work with an assurance of quality previously deemed unattainable in fixed-wing drone platforms.
Quantum Systems, Phase One, and Trimble are delivering not just a product but a promise: to provide survey and construction professionals with a tool that's accurate, efficient, and seamlessly integrated. This joint solution is more than an improvement—it's a reimagining of what aerial surveying can achieve.
