Topcon Positioning Group released two unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) for aerial mapping applications: the Sirius Pro and Sirius Basic fixed-wing aircraft systems. Both systems are designed to produce accurate solutions for mapping a wide range of sites”regardless of terrain”for use in land surveying, power line and pipeline inspection, and precision agriculture.

The fixed-wing systems resulted from a partnership with MAVinci GmbH, a UAS development company with which Topcon recently entered into a worldwide distribution agreement.
