Nauru 500B

Nauru 500B

In a country like Brazil, of continental dimensions, there is a high demand for mapping areas impossible to be raised with the conventional drones in the market. So, thinking of those specific needs, the XMobots® developed the Nauru 500B.

It is a superdrone able to map, in a single flight, the incredible mark of 49 thousand hectares. This record has come true thanks to the xMx oblique camera system, XMobots® exclusive technology.

Features of the Nauru 500B

Nauru is the ideal drone for those who seek to break down barriers, mapping with agility areas previously impossible.

Autonomy: up to 10h

25 kg

Maximum mapping per flight: 49,000 hectares

Landing system with parachute

Hull made of kevlar fiber

HA (High Accuracy) system: proven accuracy of a few centimeters without collection of control points

The Nauru 500B is available in configurations:

Nauru MA

For XMobots, a good product is one that generates a high level of profitability for your customers. Always thinking about the best results, the company launched in August 2018 the MA (Medium Accuracy) technology, already shipped in the entry version of the Nauru 500B. The MA System comprises the onboard computer MA with RTK GPS + Glonass L1, guaranteeing decimetric accuracy in the drone mapping. The XMobots MA System is compatible with RTK technology shipped on most drones manufactured in Brazil, which use RTK GPS + Glonass only on the L1 frequency. In Nauru, this technology is already present in the input configuration of the equipment. It is the best cost-benefit ratio of the Brazilian market.

MA1M3

With high performance and excellent geometric quality in obtaining images in the visible spectrum, the 1M3 camera with APS-C sensor of 24mp resolution in the RGB spectrum, is embedded in the fuselage. Thus, it is isolated from dirt and with easy access to the memory card.
This payload comes with all power, calibration, trigger and georeferencing devices, transforming the camera into an aerial photogrammetric camera.

Mirrorless camera

APS-C sensor with 3.9m pixel pitch and 3-line linescan technology (blue, green and red)

Minimum resolution of 24.3 mp

16mm fixed focal length

Minimum shutter of 1/4000

MA1M5

After almost two years of development, XMobots brings to the market the multispectral version of Nauru, boarded with the exclusive xM5 camera. With the 5 bands of the spectrum (R, G, B, Nir and RedEdge), the XMobots camera differs from the multi-spectral cameras developed for drone market by combining high radiometric and geometric quality. All this thanks to the APS-C CMOS sensor of 24mp with 6,000 horizontal pixels (in conventional cameras, the sensors usually have 1,000 horizontal pixels). The 1M5 camera bands are captured separately, allowing a single flight to generate RGB, Nir and RedEdge orthophotos.
In addition, the 1M5 camera is integrated to the MA system, guaranteeing decimetrical accuracy also in multispectral bands.

Minimum shutter speed of 1/4000

Lens with fixed focal length of 20mm

Spectrum blue, green, red, RedEdge725nm and NIR 850nm

Minimum ISO sensitivity of 6400

Files in RAW and JPEG format

Minimum resolution of 24.3 mp

Camera power supply devices by RPA, trigger and automatic synchronization for georeferencing

CMOS sensor (APS-C) 3: 2 or higher, with 3.9 pixel pitch and linescan technology

Double productivity and high performance for those seeking the best results

Unique in Brazil and the world, XMobots oblique camera technology is suitable for applications that require maximum performance in drone mapping.
When boarded obliquely in Nauru, the 2Mx system allows double the mapping capacity by increasing the coverage of the image ranges, without increasing the processing time of the images.

MA2M3

In this configuration, Nauru 500B is boarded with two 24 mp APS-C CMOS sensors in the R (Red), G (Green) and B (Blue) bands.
The angled positioning of the sensors allows – with a lateral overlap of 60% between both – an increase of 100% of the mapped area, when compared to the use of only one sensor.

2 oblique sensors that map twice the area compared to a single sensor

In case of upgrade, the sensor signals are integrated with XMobots HA technology. It allows the generation of maps with centimeter accuracy in all bands

MA2M5

The need to map thousands of hectares on few flights is a reality in countries like Brazil. The demands for mapping gigantic areas require maximum productivity and high accuracy in results.
With 2x more efficiency, two 2M5 are boarded in this version. They generate high-quality multispectral maps, both planimetric and altimetric.

In the upgrade to HA, signals integrated with XMobots HA technology allow the generation of maps with centimeter accuracy in visible bands (RGB), as well as Nir and Red Edge

3M3 and 3M5: High productivity in large areas

In countries of continental dimensions such as Brazil, it is common to demand mapping with drones areas whose size exceeds the 30,000 hectare barrier.
For technology users who have low-performance equipment, coverage of these areas requires months of operation and hundreds of flights that may involve contingencies and reduce project profitability.
It has been thinking of customers who operate frequently in these areas, that XMobots® developed the 3M5 version of Nauru. It comes boarded with 3 angled APS-C 24mp sensors with 3.9um pixel pitch with linescan technology of 3 (R, G and B) or 5 bands (R, G, B, RedEdge725nm and NIR 850nm). Thus, it allows 49 000 hectares mapping in a single flight. Ideal for users looking for high productivity, even in huge areas.

HA Technology

With HA (High Accuracy) technology, collection of control points in the field has become a thing of the past. Available in the Nauru 500B, the system developed by XMobots allows the generation of 3D models and orthophotos with accuracy of up to 2cm, without need of collection of control points.

As the only Brazilian company and one of the few in the world to have this innovation embedded on your drones, XMobots has developed HA technology thinking about clients that require maximum productivity and cost reduction in drone mapping, generating great results that contribute to the best decisions.

As a result, digital surface models, digital terrain models, contours, orthophotos and other imaging products are generated with planimetric accuracy of 1 to 3 times GSD (Ground Sample Distance) and altimetric 2 to 5 times GSD.

In this unprecedented fixed-wing drone configuration, HA technology is integrated into the 1M5 multispectral camera, developed by XMobots. For the first time in the market of drones, this innovation allows to obtain multispectral images with positional accuracy of a few centimeters, besides high geometric and radiometric quality.
The 1M5 camera contains 5 spectrum bands (R, G, B, Nir and RedEdge), captured separately by an APS-C CMOS sensor of 24mp. In this way, in a single flight it is possible to obtain orthophotos RGB, Nir and RedEdge with high accuracy.

HA2M3 and HA2M5: higher productivity

The need to map thousands of hectares on few flights is a reality in countries like Brazil, where the demands for mapping gigantic areas require maximum productivity in the results. But to get high accuracy, the difficulty of access and the long time for the implementation of control points in these large areas often make projects unviable, generating excessive costs and very low productivity.
In an attempt to solve this problem, XMobots® introduces Nauru 500B in the HA2M3 and HA2M5 versions. Nauru comes with the HA system shipped with two 24 mp three-band (blue, green, red) or five-band APS-C CMOS sensors (blue, green, red, RedEdge725nm and NIR 850nm).
With xMx camera technology, positioning the two oblique sensors allows you to double the mapping capability on a single flight.
