Surveying reaches new heights in New Zealand


Julian from GNS Science, a New Zealand company who uses Trimble technology, has been tackling some of NZ’s most treacherous mountain terrain to gather information on the changing height Mt Cook. Julian, and his team of mountain guides, surveyors and university professors, used Trimble R10 measurements and computer modelling to determine the mountains current height which had not been measured for over 22 years.

Australia’s first certified UX5 trainers


We’re excited to say, our team is now officially certified to provide training, demonstrations  and produce deliverables with the Trimble UX5 UAV solution. Technical Consultants, Stephen Anthony (NSW) and Simon Sprague (QLD) have successfully completed their Trimble UX5, Aerial Imaging Rover type training which means they’re both able to plan, fly, process and produce deliverables using the UX5.

David Hobby and Bill Farry have also both successfully completed their assessment and are now certified by Trimble to provide UX5 type training. This means we can now offer customers training on the UX5 at our training areas in each state, or on site where the facilities and location are appropriate for training purposes.

We’re currently the only certified trainers for the UX5 in Australia and all of our UAV Technical Consultants are able to provide type training in the Sensefly eBee system.

If you’re interested in a demo or training on either system, give us a call.
