Trimble APX-15 EI

Turn your UAV into a professional mapping solution

The Trimble APX-15 EI UAV is a GNSS-Inertial OEM solution designed to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of mapping from small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Comprised of small, low power, precision GNSS and inertial hardware components and POSPac UAV post-mission Differential GNSS-Inertial office software, the APX15 EI UAV eliminates the need to survey extensive Ground Control Points (GCP’s), and reduces the amount of sidelap required to be flown per flight. The innovative APX-15 EI UAV features a precision, survey grade GNSS receiver and dual inertial measurement units with identical performance; one embedded onto the GNSS-inertial board and one as an external unit connected remotely.

 With this feature the APX-15 EI can compute two sets of orientation for direct georeferencing of two separate sensor payloads, or to provide automatic support for gimballed platforms without requiring an external interface.

 HIGH ACCURACY, EXTREMELY SMALL PACKAGE Weighing only 90 grams and measuring just 60 x 67 x 34 mm for the GNSS-Inertial board, and only 15 grams and 43 x 47 x 12 mm for the external IMU, the APX-EI UAV can easily be mounted on all types of UAV’s and gimballed platforms. The APX-15-EI UAV computes a real-time navigation solution at 100 Hz using its embedded IMU while simultaneously logging the raw IMU data from both the internal and external IMU at 200 Hz for post-processing in POSPac UAV.

 The highly accurate post-processed position and orientation solutions are used for direct georeferencing of cameras, LIDARs and other sensors.
