“ppm skeyepad” is an intergrated GNSS solution based on a 8“ tablet. The customer can choose between a Windows or an Android OS. In addition the customer has the choice between the Novatel OEM7 or the Trimble MB-two GNSS board. Both are high end solutions with capable option. That makes it possible to have different solutions based on the accuraccy. From submeter up to 1 – 3 cm. And the user can upgrade the accuracy by optional software codes. This unique solution works more than 10 hours with the integrated battery by using the GNSS and the LTE module.

The UltraCam Panther is a versatile, portable Mobile Mapping System. It carries complementary sensors to capture full-spherical imagery and video, dense 3D Lidar point clouds and precise geopositioning information – indoors and outdoors. The panoramic head, the systems centerpiece, captures very high-resolution still imagery or video with a 360-degree field of view. A multi-beam rotating Lidar sensor simultaneously collects precise 3D data and a GPS/INS system, combined with a visual odometry sensor, enables accurate positioning even in environments where no GNSS signals are present.
