Position Partners, Australia’s largest retailer of positioning and geospatial solutions for surveying, mining and civil construction, have partnered with Klau Geomatics to deliver technical training and support, improving the productivity and efficiency of accurate UAV surveying.
Klau Geomatics, an innovative Australian technology company, produces the world’s most accurate and sophisticated PPK geo-positioning solution, compatible with most drones, for high precision, reliable, repeatable and accurate mapping, inspection and surveying with no ground control points.
The uptake of drone technology in construction, mining and inspection has put photogrammetry front and centre as the required skillset for the industry. There is a huge gap here in knowledge and experience, that Position Partners intends to fill by establishing themselves as the industry’s leading support source for geospatial professionals.
“We’ve been working with the Klau Geomatics team for a couple of years now and have seen this product develop to the sophisticated solution we see today,” says Martin Nix, CEO of Position Partners. “We have solid product adoption with many of our enterprise customers across the mining and construction sectors.”
“Position Partners are the right choice to take our product to market, with skilled surveyors as their sales and support staff.” says Rob Klau, Director of Klau Geomatics. “Support is critical to our customers. The KlauPPK system is more than just a drone payload, it’s survey equipment. When we get into handling geodetic corrections, site localisation and details of photogrammetry, the level of support many customers need starts to grow. With Position Partners’ reach on sales and support as well as managing other distribution channels we can focus on what we do best, continuing to develop an industry leading product.”
Customers are routinely achieving absolute positioning results at the sub 3cm level XYZ on the ground using the Klau-calibrated camera supplied with the KlauPPK kits for DJI drones. The time saving both in the field (no need to place GCPs) and in the office (reduced photogrammetry processing time), with the streamlined workflow for data processing and management, makes this a very valuable and affordable product for survey professionals.
With the seamless integration of the KlauPPK unit onto almost any drone, including the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, Matrice 200 series and Matrice 600, no professional operator should be without this high precision option for their drone.
“Position Partners are very proud to be the exclusive distributor of this revolutionary airborne survey product and are looking forward to improving productivity for our existing and new customers” says Gavin Docherty RPAS product Manager at Position Partners.
