L’Avion Jaune Selects Septentrio’s RTK Technology for YellowScan, an Ultralight Standalone Laser Scanner for UAVs

Leuven, Belgium, Dec. 15, 2014—Septentrio announced today that L’Avion Jaune, a leading service provider and airborne sensors integrator in the field of aerial surveys with a decade of experience in UAV technologies has selected the Septentrio AsteRx-m for its robustness and low-power consumption, to equip the YellowScan system.

YellowScan is the world’s lightest all-in-one solution designed to deliver quality aerial surveys carried out using a LiDAR sensor aboard UAVs at an unrivaled price-performance ratio. The self-contained system integrates into a small package all the necessary equipment for conducting airborne surveys: a 3D laser scanner, an AHRS, a controller, an autonomous power supply module and the AsteRx-m™, a high-performance precision GNSS receiver.

The AsteRx-m™ provides a compact and low power solution for precise positioning in the most difficult environments where the tracking of both GLONASS and GPS satellites allows the receiver to improve the availability and robustness of a positioning solution. Septentrio’s newest RTK models optimally adapt to situations where GNSS signals can be distorted by reflective surfaces and feature unique countermeasures to disturbances, thus maintaining accurate and stable measurements wherever and whenever cm-level accuracy is needed.

“The easy to integrate AsteRx-m™ has proven to deliver the most reliable and stable RTK performance of all, in a compact and exceptionally low-power consumption module” said Michel Assenbaum, CEO of L’Avion Jaune. “The AsteRx-m™ allows us to extend the operational range and capabilities of the YellowScan, a fully autonomous surveying solution dedicated to UAVs. We have tested the solution in various environments across the world and have never seen it falter”.

“We are delighted that L’Avion Jaune, a respected expert in designing unmanned-aerial remote sensing solutions, has validated the excellent performance of our ultra-compact GNSS receiver,” commented Jan Van Hees, Head of Business Development at Septentrio. “We are impressed to see how much interest YellowScan has drawn since its introduction and we are very proud to be contributing to the success of a best of breed solution in this highly competitive market.”
