GGS GmbH Visit Website

GGS is a leading developer and integrator of systems and solutions for UAS (unmanned aerial system)-based aerial surveying. Using state-of-the-art high-resolution sensors together with sophisticated drone flight management systems and mission planning software, we provide all-in-one solutions for drone mapping and aerial survey missions.

AeroSpector Quadcopter Drone

Professional Quadcopter Drone for Mapping & Surveying

Electric quadcopter drone

The AeroSpector is an electric quadcopter drone designed for drone aerial survey missions with a flight endurance of over 30 minutes. The modular construction is optimized for a payload of up to six kilograms, and the quadcopter drone can be equipped with both an RGB detector and a LiDAR scanner.

With integrated GPS and RTK, the AeroSpector quadcopter drone can be programmed with waypoints for fully autonomous operation, and features manual intervention capabilities in case of emergency. The system also features a triple-redundant flight controller, parachute and optional sensor payload airbags for maximum safety.

Drone Hyperspectral Sensors

Hyperspectral Sensors for Drones and UAS

Our hyperspectral sensors are ideal for drone-based mineral prospecting, precision agriculture, environmental monitoring, security and more. Based on state-of-the-art pushbroom technology, the hyperspectral sensors guarantee simultaneous data capture of multiple parallel spectral bands for precise radiometric data analysis.

Lightweight and robust for drone operations, the hyperspectral sensors can be combined with our high-resolution RGB AeroCam systems, the AeroTherm ThIR camera, or LiDAR sensors. With our AeroTopoL FMS and AeroDiDOS direct referencing, these sensors can form highly flexible turnkey solutions to suit a wide range of mission requirements.
