Huntsville, Ala., Feb. 9, 2015—AirGon LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the GeoCue Group, is pleased to announce the release of the AirGon AV-900 Metric Mapping Kit (MMK). The AV-900 MMK includes all of the components and software that you need for small area photogrammetric mapping (with the exception of a laptop computer on which to run the software and the survey equipment necessary to place ground control points). The system is based on a 6 rotor vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) called the AV-900. We have spent a considerable amount of research and development selecting what we think is just the right platform, autopilot, telemetry radios and other kit materials to enable repeatable and reliable mapping operations.
The base AV-900 MMK includes:
This complete kit is priced at $29,665 and is immediately available. We have a recommendation for a high end laptop PC suitable for point cloud processing listed on our AirGon Knowledge Base. Customers who need to do bare earth orthophoto production can upgrade to the Pix4D version of the AV-900 MMK.
AirGon LLC is the airborne sUAS metric mapping subsidiary of GeoCue Group Incorporated. AirGon is the creator of the AV-900 VTOL sUAS and the AV 900 Metric Mapping Kit (MMK). Additional information can be found at www.AirGon.com or by inquiry via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
