Position Partners has partnered with Klau Geomatics to bring the Klau PPK High Precision Drone module to the Australian market.
The positioning and geospatial solutions business will be the exclusive distributor of the drone module from Klau Geomatics – an Australian technology company that produces aerial geo-positioning solutions for mapping and inspections.
“We’ve been working with the Klau Geomatics team for a couple of years now and have seen this product develop to the sophisticated solution we see today,” Position Partners CEO Martin Nix said.
“We have solid product adoption with many of our enterprise customers across the mining and construction sectors.”
Director of Klau Geomatics Rob Klau said Position Partners is the right choice to take their product to market.
“Support is critical to our customers. The Klau PPK system is more than just a drone payload – it’s survey equipment,” he said.
“When we get into handling custom coordinate systems, site localisation and details of photogrammetry, the level of support many customers need starts to grow. With Position Partners’ reach on sales and support we can focus on what we do best, continuing to develop an industry leading product.”
A statement from Position Partners said customers using the module are achieving positioning results at the 3cm level XYZ on the ground using the Klau-calibrated camera supplied with the Klau PPK kits for DJI drones.
“The high quality of the L1/L2 GNSS receiver (BeiDdou enabled), coupled with tight integration to Position Partner’s AllDayRTK CORS network, means the end user has all the tools necessary to carry out reliable aerial surveys efficiently and without the need for ground control across the coverage area,” Position Partners RPAS Product Manager Gavin Docherty said.
“Position Partners are very proud to be the exclusive distributor of this revolutionary airborne survey product and are looking forward to improving productivity for our existing and new customers.”
