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 Mapping & Surveying 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 multirotor can be equipped with both an RGB detector and a LiDAR scanner.
With integrated GPS and RTK, the AeroSpector 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.
GGS specialises in complete in-house UAS systems integration, providing customers with the highest possible system performance and efficiency for a broad range of applications, including infrastructure inspection, surveying and mapping, flood and fire monitoring, and post-disaster relief.
Our AeroScan LiDAR solutions are based on RIEGL airborne laser scanners, and are ideal for rapid, high-accuracy 3D data capture of agricultural assets, forestry sites, urban areas, industrial plants, utilities and infrastructure, and more.
The compact, lightweight sensors are designed for even the most challenging UAV LiDAR surveying missions.
Our 5-Band solution for precision agriculture and other red-edge vegetation analysis applications uses three stabilized PhaseOne cameras with direct georeferencing for maximum position and orientation precision. The 5-Band system works with specially modified iX Capture software to provide an efficient, intuitive workflow for generating RGBI, NDVI and CIR images for data analysis.
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.
Our UV/RGB detector systems, ideal for power line monitoring and failure detection, capture both corona radiation and corresponding visualized RGB images, blocking sunlight to generate pure amplified UV radiation. The systems provide up to 1.4 MP resolution at up to 30 fps, with a choice of 18 or 25 mm diameter image intensifiers with spectral sensitivities from 180 to 850 nm.
The AeroTherm infrared camera supports a variety of thermal radiation monitoring requirements, for missions such as utilities and infrastructure inspection, forest fire management, industrial plan monitoring, and security.
Available with cooled or uncooled sensor, AeroTherm can be fully integrated with our AeroTopoL FMS and AeroStab stabilizer family, and is managed by AeroTherm Control software via Firewire, with real-time data control and visualization.
The Aero OTS high-resolution multi-sensor platform combines up to nine cameras based on FLIR industrial thermal imaging sensors, with five cameras providing continuous cross-track coverage, and two back and two front cameras for oblique data.
The OTS Capture software allows control of all synchronised cameras within the system, and can be interfaced with the AeroTopoL FMS for precise, efficient mission planning. The OTS Capture interface can also be accessed remotely via web browser.
The AeroNav GPS is an entry-level solution providing precise mission navigation and camera control for accurate aerial imagery. Based around smoothed L1 GPS receivers, the AeroNav GPS uses bi-directional RS232 communication to facilitate operations such as aerial camera operation via electronic switch, determining camera event signals on an open collector, and event-based positioning with 0.01 second accuracy.

The AeroNav Vector is a dual-receiver, dual-antenna GPS solution that provides true heading determination for UAVs with a 10 Hz refresh rate. The system is ideal for precision aerial camera operations, including triggering via electronic switch, determining camera event signals on an open collector, and event-based positioning with 0.01 second accuracy.
AeroMMC is a multi-camera interface that can electronically trigger up to 5 cameras simultaneously, using either galvanic separation or sequential 200 or 400 msec delays. A single port GNSS event can be used to detect the projection centres of each camera, with serial commands used to trigger cameras separately or all at once.
AeroMMC allows interfacing of a wide variety of GNSS receivers and cameras along with AeroTopoL and other FMS.
Our Oblique Imaging Systems combine multiple cameras for 3D mapping applications such as generation of high-precision models of urban environments.
All perfectly-synchronized cameras are controlled by our Smart Shooter software, which controls a variety of parameters and procedures including image exposure and storage procedures.
All systems can be equipped with different lenses and tilt angles can be modified for flexible operation. Our AeroTopoL FMS and AeroDiDOS GNSS-INS can be integrated to generate directly georeferenced data for a smooth workflow.
