DeckfinderTM Key Features

DeckfinderTM provides a very high accuracy of better than 20cm during final approach – and this for landing & take-off. The area of operation is scalable up to 1.1 km. With an update rate of 15 Hz the system can handle highly dynamic situations. DeckfinderTM is build to task with it‘s strong dust- and saltwaterproof GSU housing and the 1.6 kg light airborne segment. And it will work under an extreme temperature range of -32°C to +55°C.

System Level Features:

  • Provision of relative 3D position
  • Provision of relative heading
  • Independent from Global Navigation Satellite Systems
  • Radio-frequency based solution – independent from day / night & environmental conditions
