Built for beginners and validated by experts, AeroPoints are the industry’s only smart ground control points. Use with any drone and on any worksite to capture survey-grade data every time you fly.
What are AeroPoints?
AeroPoints are GPS-enabled smart ground control points that deliver the same precision as traditional solutions, with less time and money involved. But their real value comes from their versatility—use them as ground control, checkpoints, or even base stations.
AeroPoints were carefully designed to withstand extended usage in any environment and offer ultimate compatibility. Use AeroPoints with any drone, anywhere. Then access your data from a single cloud-based platform.
New dual-frequency GPS means faster satellite fix times and a reduced minimum capture time for our Propeller PPK drone surveying workflow. AeroPoints require just 10 minutes (and a 2-minute minimum flight using a known point) to capture the information they require to deliver accurate ground control.
The new AeroPoints 2 last more than twice as long as the original AeroPoints on a single battery charge — up to 100 hours of battery life. The new plug-in charging port provides a fast charge, so you can get back in the field quickly.
We’ve upgraded internal storage to Flash memory hardware, so you can kiss your SD card goodbye. New Bluetooth capability enables you to receive diagnostic information through the new AeroPoints app while you’re out in the field, and a new Wi-Fi chip enables faster, more reliable uploads.
New AeroPoints App
The AeroPoints app puts the confidence that comes with real-time diagnostics in your hands. The app can help answer questions like, “Did my data upload?” and “Is my AeroPoint’s battery charged?”. And in keeping with our commitment to ultimate interoperability, the app works on any Android or iOS device that’s Bluetooth-enabled.
For AeroPoints to work, you need to maintain a subscription to the Propeller Corrections Network, which is included with your purchase for the first 12 months.
After the first year, if you have a current Propeller Platform license, you get the Network subscription for free.If you aren’t using the Propeller Platform, the Network subscription is just $600 USD / year.
