Delair-Tech’s DT18/DT26X Long Range UAVs Now Integrated with Applanix’ APX-15 UAV & AP20 for Highly Accurate and Cost Effective Aerial Mapping


Delair-Tech provides survey-grade drone technology for professionals. The DT18 and DT26X have one of the longest endurance and flight range in the UAV market today. The sensor quality onboard is adapted to the accuracy and quality of the data that is required by our customers. With distributors in 15 countries and references among large companies AND A UNIQUE BVLOS CERTIFICATION* , Delair-Tech is one of the most active drone players in the commercial market.

After reviewing Direct Georeferencing solutions on the market, Delair-tech selected Applanix; the APX-15 UAV for camera sensors and AP20 for LIDAR. Applanix is the recognized leader in Direct Georeferencing technology for aerial mapping and has been aggressively developing for the UAV market.

The Applanix APX-15 UAV, measuring just 6 cm x 6.7 cm and weighing only 60 grams, is a GNSS-Inertial solution designed to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of mapping from small UAVs. Comprised of a small single OEM board containing a precision GNSS receiver and inertial sensor components plus post-mission Differential GNSS-Inertial office software, the Applanix APX-15 UAV eliminates the need to survey extensive Ground Control Points (GCP’s) and reduces the amount of sidelap to be flown thus increasing the area flown each mission.

Accuracies The position and orientation accuracies, once data is postprocessed with the included POSPac software, are 2 to 5 cm in position, 0.025° in pitch and roll, and 0.08° in heading.

Benefits of precision GNSS/IMU and post-mission software POSPac & POSPac UAV

1. Improved Accuracy: by using POSPac MMS postmission software (POSPac UAV for APX-15 UAV), a highly accurate differential GNSS based position and orientation solution for Direct Georeferencing of cameras, LIDARs and other onboard sensors is obtained.

2. Reduced Operational Costs: by reducing the number of GCP’s and sidelap required, larger areas can be flown at a reduced cost.

3. Increased Overall Efficiency. “I would recommend Applanix, the APX-15 UAV and AP20, to companies looking for the best, highest grade products. The technology is superb, and the team is exceptional to work with,” – Benjamin Benharrosh, Co-Founder, Sales & Marketing Director, Delair-Tech SAS
