Q200 Surveyor Pro

 Advanced Aerial Survey Drone And Data Analysis


The QuestUAV Q-200 Surveyor Pro solution is a Survey Drone aimed at intermediate to advanced users who are looking to complete regular, professional surveys under the toughest of conditions whilst still aiming to obtain high-grade data that fits the industry standard.

The Q-200 Surveyor Pro Survey Drone is for is best suited for established users, or users who intend to become established within a 3 to 6 month period and who are looking to invest long term with a view to Return on Investment (ROI) within the first year.

The solution looks to provide the operator(s) with skills and support to remain consistently airworthy, saving time, resources and costs. The solution is backed up with options for comprehensive training in the UK or in the country of sale, as well as ongoing service, repair and maintenance packages.

The data capable of capturing covers a wide range of applications and industry including agriculture for land survey, archaeology for site investigation, Fluvial/Glacial/Cadastral surveys, high-altitude surveys, land management, Stock Pile Volume Estimation and many more applications.

 


Why Choose the Q200 Surveyor Pro Survey Drone?


 

Durability

Buy into endurance. Built with durability and long service in mind, our drones use only the highest quality processes and the toughest building materials.

Precision engineering techniques, rigorous testing and off-the-shelf spares will ensure that a QuestUAV drone will be ready to fly, even under the toughest conditions.

Mission Planning

Mission Planning

Standard mission planning functionality is available and includes common tasks such as survey, monitoring and data acquisition. Simple to use software enables operators to automatically generate survey grids, select payload and cameras settings, place navigation waypoints, home position and emergency reference point. Safety settings, including maximum distance limits, battery condition and data-link quality provide additional mission management functions.

Flight Automation

Our autopilots provide selectable levels of user control from full-autonomy to manual override. In full autonomous mode, the autopilot provides auto-launch, waypoint navigation, task/payload management and auto-recovery solutions. In assisted mode, the autopilot provides stabilised flight control in pitch, roll and yaw. Manual override provides the operator with the ability to take complete control at any time during the flight.

Parachute Recovery

Create a safer and easier operating environment with our parachute function. This makes the general operation of the UAV drone simpler for inexperienced users, or for landing in small spaces.

The parachute is deployed through a switch on the pilot’s transmitter, giving the pilot control over the exact time of deployment - a key factor in any successful UAV drone parachute deployment. The parachute can also be deployed as a safety function should the pilot consider that the UAV drone or the flight is in danger.

Gimbal System

The SURVEYOR PRO drone comes equipped with our custom built single gimbal system to further help obtain the best quality data.

Made from a robust ABS construction, the twin gimbal allows self-stabilisation of the drone's roll axis. No matter how turbulent the flight is, the sensor will always be stable and pointing in the right place!

Telemetry

The inbuilt telemetry solution provides two levels of data to the ground: essential flight critical and mission management information with the option of full aircraft state and instrumentation outputs. The powerful software suite includes both routine operational mission management and an integrated data acquisition system. Data can be logged to file for inspection after the flight.


Q-Pod Technology


Keep up-to-date without sourcing whole new systems. The QuestUAV Q-Pod technology allows a series of modular payload bays to be attached to your UAV. Opt for different sensors or upgrade to new sensors when they become available.

This technology is a breakthrough in low-cost commercial UAV, giving you an unparalleled capability to benefit from the latest sensor designs and developments.

Upgrades


 

UAV Branding

All our drones can come specifically branded to your companies requirements with no additional cost. We treat each of our customers as individuals and understand that the small details are just as important as the big ones!

Our design team will walk you through this process to ensure your company branding, logo and colours are in place to add this extra dimension of professionalism.

 

Software Upgrade

Once your mission has been completed and your data have been collected, the next step is to process this data to acquire the information you require to make the all important decisions. Upgrade your package with industry standard leading Pix4Dmapper software to generate high resolution referenced, survey-grade accurate orthomosaics, DSMs and Point clouds in a few clicks. The fully automated workflow enables a non-specialist to process thousands of aerial images on a desktop computer to produce professional class photogrammetric data.

High Accuracy Sensing Capabilities

The sensor is the heart of your drone and depending on which sensor you choose will determine what data your drone is capable of collecting.

Survey large areas of land in high detail with our QuestUAV Q-200 Surveyor drone. At the heart of the UAV sits the Sony A6000 visible (RGB) sensor which captures high definition geo-referenced images which are suitable for post analysis of the survey area.

The Sony A6000 captures the finest detail with the DSLR-sized 24.3 effective megapixel APS-C sensor. Using the 16mm wide angle lens we are able to capture data down to 2.9cm GSD resolution at 400ft. The A6000 is equipped with an Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor usually found inside a DSLR to ensure an extremely fast performance, sharp image quality and low noise images, even in low-light conditions.

The sensor is triggered automatically by the autopilot through an infra red sensor. This means that there is no modification to the camera ensuring that replacements are at regular prices rather than highly inflated OEM prices.

When the mission has finished all images and their corresponding coordinates cab be inputted into our modelling software (upgrade option) where 2D orthomosaics, 3D surface models and point clouds can be generated.
