Hexacopter for professional use
Commercial aerial solution
The H520 is a hexacopter that has been developed for commercial use. The sUAS is the perfect solution for long flight times and a proven and robust technology in an all-in-one package. The H520 is built for inspection, law enforcement, security, construction, surveying, and mapping applications in addition to offering cinematic imaging payload systems.
Built for industrial use and ambitious professionals
The H520 is designed with the inspection industry in mind with six-rotor systems that allow for stable, precise flight, long focal-length lenses that allow the sUAS to fly at greater distance from an object and data storage that may be shared instantly from the ST16S Ground Station or delivered directly in 4K/2K/HD video or 20Mp still images.
H520 with Real Time Kinematics (RTK) technology
Thanks to Real Time Kinematics satellite navigation the H520 RTK is able to stand in the air with centimeter accuracy, enabling extremely precise, repetitive photos, faster 3D mapping and more accurate, even automated, inspection flights. The commercial Hexacopter H520 receives one of the fastest and most reliable RTK systems in the world, developed by the award-winning Swiss company Fixposition. Fully integrated into the H520, it ensures the highest precision and the fastest possible operational readiness even under difficult GPS conditions like in cities, canyons or forests.

2 components for a centimeter-level positioning
The system works with 2 components, an RTK module on board of the H520 and a base station. In less than 30 seconds it can reach a centimeter-level accuracy, also under challenging GPS conditions (with respect to the base station). For an absolute global centimeter-level accuracy and in case you don't want to use a base station, the system can also be operated with a network RTK reference station (Network RTK through third party provider, needs an internet connection, additional fees may apply).
Real Time Kinematics - Application areas
The RTK system is an important part of commercial applications where highest precision is required. A classic field of application is 3D mapping, for example with Pix4D, Dronedeploy or Altizure software. With the help of RTK, there are significantly lower image overlaps which means that less photos and thus a shorter flight and calculation time are necessary. In addition, inspections can be much closer to the desired object because the drone's location will be precise down to the centimeter. This precision is also a great advantage when comparing several images taken on different days, for example to document a construction progress.
