  1. Camera synchronization

    Usually autopilot triggers the camera and records the coordinate it has at that moment. When the drone is flying at 20 m/s and GPS works at 5 Hz, that means your autopilot will have position readings only each 4 m, which is not suitable for precise georeferencing. In addition, there is always a delay between the trigger and the actual moment the photo is taken. Reach solves the problem of positioning by connecting directly to the camera hot shoe port, which is synced with the shutter. The time and coordinates of each photo are logged with a resolution of less than a microsecond. This method allows GCPs to be used only to check your accuracy.

  2. RINEX logging

    Reach captures flash sync pulses with sub-microsecond resolution and stores them in a raw data RINEX log in the internal memory. After the flight, get the RINEX logs from your airborne Reach module and a base station (Reach RS, CORS or another receiver). Process RINEX files using free RTKLIB software. The produced file with precise coordinates of the photos can be used for georeferencing.

  3. ReachView 3

    The most user-friendly software for data collection that is available both for Android and iOS. Supports thousands of coordinate systems and is translated into multiple languages. With ReachView 3, you can control all the features of Reach receivers, such as setting up a base station, logging RINEX data, and configuring NMEA output.
