In what has become a tradition for Quantum Systems, the company highlighted their presence at INTERGEO with the debut of a brand-new drone. Expanding greatly on the features of the first version of the Trinity that was released in 2017, the new Trinity F90+ allows users to reduce typical GNSS geotagging errors of several meters down to 2-5 cm via auxiliary GNSS data collection in flight. This new drone is designed to provide better accuracy at a dramatically reduced price.
Florian Seibel, CEO of Quantum-Systems, revealed the product to the crowd that was gathered at the Quantum Systems booth and then further explained the product’s capabilities. The “F” in F90+ stands for the guaranteed 90 minutes of flight time, while the new payload selection enables a max of 700g (1.54 lbs), providing users with that many more payload options. Additionally, the Trinity F90+ was tested in desert environments to ensure it could remain operational at these higher temperatures. The temperature resistance goes up to 50 °C (122°F) to provide users with that much more flexibility.
Another important feature of the Trinity F90+ is the ability to automatically integrate the Live-Air-Traffic-Info into QBase when pingUSB is connected. pingUSB is the world’s smallest and lightest USB dual-band ADS-B receiver and can provide high-quality tracking data for use with software such as Virtual Radar Server with services that include ADS-B Exchange. A list of the new features is below:
- 90+ min flight time in combination with the widest range of payload options available
- PPK including Quantum-System iBase Ground Reference Station powered by u-blox
- RGB & multispectral (dual) payload options
- Powerful motors for even more reserves in all situations
- Live Air Traffic (ADS-B) & QBase Mission Planning
- 2.4Ghz telemetry with up to 7.5 km range
- Optional ADS-B Mode-S out
