Trimble OEM GNSS Receivers for UAVsTrimble solutions offer robust precision accuracy and fully streamlined integration for autonomous navigation.

A wide range of high-precision receivers and rugged enclosures are available to fit the needs of your application. Trimble’s centimeter-level, real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning is achieved through the combination of multi-frequency GNSS and full triple-frequency support of all available GNSS satellite constellations.

ApplanixA wholly owned subsidiary of Trimble, Applanix specializes in the Direct Georeferencing of imaging sensors with inertial-aided GNSS technology on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Our scalable, high-precision positioning and orientation solutions maximize the productivity of mapping with UAVs across numerous applications and environments (including GNSS-denied areas), while backing our products with first-rate service and support for our global customer base. Applanix also specializes in autonomous vehicle technology and our POS LV systems are in use with autonomous heavy industry vehicles such as mining. The Applanix Autonomy development kit includes hardware, software, and engineering and implementation services.

OEM RTK GNSS Receivers

Trimble RTK GNSS receivers offer quick and reliable centimeter-level positioning to OEMs and system integrators, and are ideal for the demanding requirements of unmanned and autonomous applications.

Trimble UAS1 Dual-Frequency GNSS Receiver

Compact, lightweight GNSS receiver for UAV/UAS applications

Trimble UAS1 GNSS receiverThe Trimble UAS1 dual-frequency receiver provides robust centimeter-level, real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning for UAV/UAS applications.

With L1/L2 tracking for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou, the UAS1 features a rugged construction with a full metal shield and a very small footprint for SWaP-conscious systems. The UAS1 supports Trimble CenterPoint® RTX GNSS corrections, enabling precise and robust positioning without the use of a base station and providing better than two-centimeter horizontal and five-centimeter vertical accuracy.

Trimble BD940 Triple Frequency GNSS Receiver

Centimeter-level position accuracy for unmanned applications

Trimble_BD940 Triple-Requency GNSS ReceiverThe Trimble BD940 delivers the quick and reliable RTK and RTX initializations for centimeter positioning in a small, compact design. For applications operating in GNSS-denied environments, the Trimble BD940-INS delivers robust high-accuracy position data without the need for a base station.

Trimble MB-Two OEM GNSS Receiver

Lightweight, dual-frequency receiver for precise Heading + Pitch/Roll

Trimble MB-Two OEM GNSS ReceiverThe Trimble MB-Two is a powerful dual-frequency, lightweight GNSS receiver capable of providing centimeter-level accuracy position and heading. The system allows a wide range of option-upgradable GNSS configurations from single antenna/frequency (GPS) to dual antenna/frequency (GPS, QZSS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo).

The next-generation hardware provides low power consumption in a compact form factor ideal for space-constrained unmanned vehicles and robotics.

Two MB-Two modules can be easily connected to each other to build a Precise Platform Positioning module (no firmware upgrade required), utilizing up to four dual-band GNSS antennas for multisensory raw data output, precise position and attitude simultaneously.

OEM GNSS+Inertial Boards with DG Technology

Applanix Direct Georeferencing (DG) technology works with airborne UAV mapping sensors such as cameras, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), and hyperspectral sensors to perform highly efficient and automated mapping and surveying. DG reduces – even eliminates – the use of Ground Control Points (GCPs), significantly shortening the flight and processing time required to generate final map products. Our family of DG for UAV OEM boards compute positioning and orientation with superior accuracy and performance in a tiny form factor, suitable for even the smallest of UAVs.

Trimble APX-15 UAV

Single board GNSS-Inertial solution for Direct Georeferencing from sUAS

Applanix’ small, lightweight flagship Trimble APX-15 UAV GNSS-Inertial OEM solution provides superior DG accuracy and performance using cameras, LiDAR, and other sensors, and is suitable for most UAV applications.

The single OEM board contains a precision GNSS receiver and inertial sensor components, plus post-mission Differential GNSS-Inertial office software. This highly efficient solution eliminates the need to survey extensive Ground Control Points (GCPs) and reduces sidelap, thereby increasing the area flown per mission.
