PPK Kit Phantom4

The PPK Kit Phantom4 is a non-intrusive adapter system for connecting a receiver GNSS Emlid Reach M2 or M + (not included) to a DJI Phantom 4 Pro or Advance model drone.

Main Advantages:

  • Works with modules Emlid Reach M2 and M +
  • There is no need to open or modify the drone
  • Kit attaches and detaches in seconds
  • No batteries required
  • Ultra-fast Image Trigger Detector Sensor
  • Lightweight micro electronics: 70 grams
  • Heat and cold resistant materials for extreme weather operation

FOR INTEGRATION REQUIRES:

  1. A PPK Kit Phantom4
  2. A Drone: Phantom 4 Pro or Phantom 4 Advance (Not included)
  3. A module Emlid Reach M2 o Emlid Reach M + with GNSS Antenna (Not included)
  4. A RINEX compatible GPS Base Receiver (Not included)

An externally installed sensor on the P4P drone detects the shot of each photograph and records a timestamp in the Reach module's log file. M2 (Multiband) o M + (Monoband).

Timestamps are extracted from the module post-flight and combined with images taken in flight as centimeter-precision geotagging (geotagging) using various specialized software options available on the market.

Modules Emlid Reach M2 and M + They are centimeter precision multiband / monoband RTK GNSS systems for UAV mapping up to 100km / 20km respectively.

Post Process - PPK

The final PPK (Post Processed Kinematic) mapping workflow can be performed using different software options. Each of them has its own steps to follow and its own degree of difficulty. This is a small list of post-processing programs, from less to greater degree of difficulty according to our experience:

Toposetter 2.0 Pro | REDtoolbox | RTKLIB y GeoSetter (Free)

Once the information is processed, you can import the image set into any mapping software, such as:

Pix4D | Agisoft MetashapeDroneDeploy 

The Mavic 2 PPK Kit does not require batteries. It is powered through an electronic card with a USB C type connection to the drone. This allows to reduce the weight of the equipment to a minimum: approximately 70 grams, which is an important detail when flying.
Our photo sensor has the following shooting light response speeds: Turn-On time: 8 uS (micro seconds) Turn-Off time: 50 uS (micro seconds) This shooting record speed sent and recorded by the M2 is enough to ensure centimeter accuracy, taking into account the drone's flight speed margins in a topographic survey flight mission.
All work in PPK mode must have Ground Control Points. The number of points will be subject to the work area. We recommend placing only 30% to 40% of the control points that would normally be used in a conventional survey. For example: from 20 points in conventional mode to 5 points in PPK mode. These points will serve to make a control in x, y, z.
In some specialized processing programs such as Toposetter 2.0 Pro and REDToolbox the values ​​can be placed in x, y, z to compensate or correct the offset of the distance from the antenna to the camera before starting the post process.
When using the Mavic 2 PPK Kit during drone flight and with the M2 module in PPK or "Single" mode, the average consumption of the PPK system is 200 mA to 300 mA. Due to this, the flight time of the drone can be reduced due to the additional power consumption. In flight missions at sea level, the additional battery consumption can be within a range of 2% to 7%. In flight missions carried out above 3000 meters above sea level, consumption can be within a range of 5% to 10%. As a general rule in high altitude flights, it is recommended for safety to set the internal battery consumption alarm at 30% and return to the take-off point at 25%. Please check the drone user manual to make these settings. Always use good drone batteries.
The materials used for the PPK Kit Mavic 2 frame (ABS-PETG polymers) and all the internal electronics are resistant to very harsh working environments, with external temperatures of -5 ° C to 80 ° C (23 ° F at 176 ° F). Keep in mind that the Mavic 2 drone's Operating Temperature Range is only 0 ° C to 40 ° C (32 ° F to 104 ° F).
The maximum capture or recording frequencies of the modules' positioning are as follows: M2: 10Hz (10 records per second). Based on these characteristics, to achieve maximum precision in capturing positioning data during drone flights, we can recommend the following: [1] Select the highest possible frequency according to the number of GNSS systems required. For example: In the M2 module: GPS + GLONASS, frequency 10Hz. [2] Fly in mode: "Hover & Capture at a Point" (Speed ​​can vary between 3m / s to 15m / s). [3] If you are flying in the "Capture at Equal Distance Interval / Time Interval" modes, the speed of the drone should not exceed 5m / s. Remember that at higher flight speed the precision range may decrease, therefore the speed should be as low as possible according to the availability of operating time and the number of batteries. [4] Regarding the flight schedule, it is recommended to fly in the hours when the height of the Sun above the horizon is ≥45 sexagesimal degrees. [5] Image overlap: According to the type of terrain. Flat terrain: Longitudinal: 60%. Side: 20%. Undulating terrain: Longitudinal: 70%. Side: 30%. Mountainous terrain: Longitudinal: 80%. Side: 50%.
