Position Partners has announced the introduction of the Klau Geomatics high-precision PPK system for DJI drones.

Klau’s PPK units contain calibrated cameras, and offer up to 3-centimetre XYZ accuracy in the field without the need for GPS or ground control points, according to Position Partners.

“The high quality of the L1/L2 GNSS receiver (BeiDou 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,” said Martin Nix, Position Partners CEO.

The partnership will place Position Partners as the exclusive distributor for Australian technology company Klau Geomatics’ high-end aerial geo-positioning systems, allowing customers to leverage their national support network and CORS service.

“Support is critical to our customers,” said Rob Klau, Director of Klau Geomatics. “The Klau PPK system is more than just a drone payload, it’s survey equipment. When we get into handling custom coordinate systems, site localisation and details of photogrammetry, the level of support many customers need starts to grow,” he said.

Position Parters says that the Klau PPK unit can be integrated onto almost any drone, citing seamless integration with DJI’s Phantom 4 Pro, Matrice 200 and M600.
