Position Partners turn to Propeller

Position Partners and Propeller Aero partner to offer seamless end-to-end Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) bundles that deliver survey-grade results.

Their new RPAS bundles offer centimetre-level accuracy and a seamless, user-friendly workflow, and they’re now available from Position Partners. The bundles are designed specifically for surveying purposes, and combine aircraft from leading global manufacturer DJI with Propeller Aero’s cloud-based data platform, and new, revolutionary AeroPoints ground control system.

“We are delighted to offer these comprehensive and unique RPAS bundles, which make getting survey grade accuracy with aerial mapping technology a simple and reliable process, from as little as $18,000 Australian dollars, $19,000 New Zealand,” said Gavin Docherty, Position Partners National RPAS Manager.

Customers can choose from either the popular, sub-two kilogram Phantom 4 aircraft or new M100 high performance quadcopter, which offers longer flight times, advanced collision avoidance and enhanced in-flight stability.

What makes the bundles survey-grade, Mr Docherty said, is the new AeroPoint active ground control system. “AeroPoints are the only ground control points in the world that deliver absolute MGA (Map Grid of Australia) coordinates, with built-in GNSS, PPK, WiFi and solar panel technology,” he said.

“Previous ground control systems worked off a ‘near-enough, good-enough’ basis, which simply doesn’t cut it for survey applications,” Mr Docherty added. “With AeroPoints there are no more spray paint marked points and no need to use a survey rover. You simply set them down, press a button, and fly the aircraft. You can then process, analyse and share incredibly accurate 3D surveys through Propeller’s online platform.”

Rory San Miguel, Propeller Aero’s Co-Founder and Co-CEO also commented on the new partnership. “It is great to bring our advanced cloud software and new AeroPoints system to market via a collaboration with a leading RPAS solutions provider such as Position Partners,” he said. “We’re excited to make survey-grade accuracy both affordable and accessible through this bundle.”
