Trimble has extended its unmanned aerial portfolio to include both fixed-wing and multi-rotor solutions, with the inclusion of the Trimble ZX5 Multi-rotor Unmanned Aircraft System. The ZX5 is a new aerial imaging and workflow solution that captures and processes geo-referenced photo and video data for mapping, agriculture and inspection applications. The Trimble ZX5 complements the UAS portfolio with the ability to reach smaller, remote environments faster, while providing accurate mapping data for improved productivity in the field and back office.
The ZX5 Multi-rotor is built for everyday jobs where image capture from tight spaces is common. Its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities allow users to work in tight places and obstructed environments where fixed-wing solutions are less suitable.
The ZX5 includes a 16 megapixel camera to capture high-quality aerial imagery, down to 1 mm ground sample distance. It can also be equipped to capture live video imagery for civil infrastructure, utility and oil and gas pipeline inspections.
Data captured by the ZX5 can be imported into Trimble Business Center Photogrammetry Module software to create detailed ortho-photos, digital elevation models, point clouds, volume calculations and 3D models, all without requiring specialised photogrammetry knowledge or experience.
We are expecting delivery of our ZX5 demo model shortly, so contact us using this form if you would like to see what the new Trimble ZX5 multi-rotor can do for you.
