The SmartPlanes Freya is perfect for BVLOS. The system consists of three central components: the drone, all the required software and accessories, and support services. The system can be complemented with additional components to enable even more mission types, using the same software.
The Ricoh GR is equipped with a high-sensitivity, wide dynamic range APS-C large-size CMOS sensor for image quality equivalent to much larger DSLR cameras. With the cameras fixed high-performance GR LENS 18.3mm F2.8(equivalent to 28mm in the 35mm format) and by making the camera low-pass filter-less, the camera provides a clear depiction all the way to the edges of the image. By designing the sensor and lens to be mutually optimized, and inclusion of a large-format sensor, the GR achieves outstanding results in the following photogrammetric processing.
Smart4D Smart4D is an advanced software powered by Pix4D that automatically processes your aerial imagery into orthomosaics, DSMs, DTMs, Point clouds and much more. Smart4D is only sold as a part of SmartPlanes Advanced Package. Follow this link to read more.
This is a specially modified version of the Ricoh GR camera that can acquire image data also in the near infrared spectrum. It is designed for applications within the fields of precision agriculture and vegetation health monitoring. The spectral information can be used to compute the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and other spectral indices. The high resolution optics combined with a large (APS-C size) with very good signal to noise ratio makes it ideally suited for accurate measurement of spectral properties. It also features manual focus and exposure settings. Image data can be acquired in the uncompressed RAW format preserving the integrity of the radiometric data.
Designed for professional use, FLIR Vue Pro is more than a thermal camera, it is a thermal measurement instrument and data recorder that adds tremendous value to your sUAS operations and services.
Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card so you won’t lose any of your data to transmission loss. Imagery is saved to the micro-SD card and can be retrieved either from the card or by plugging the camera into a USB cable, where your computer will see it as a storage device.
Post processed kinematic (PPK) is a GPS position location process whereby signals received from a mobile location receiving device stores position data that can be adjusted using corrections from a reference station after the data has been collected.

RedEdge is a rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor that captures specific wavebands needed for accurate plant health analysis. With various integration options, it’s also one of the most flexible solutions on the market. Additionally, high GSD, a low power requirement, and a global shutter for distortion free images make this sensor the multispectral powerhouse.
If you are flying your Freya in difficult situations, such as strong winds, in mountainous areas, out of line of sight, or over very large areas, the Tracker is a useful safeguard against unexpected aircraft loss. It is a portable handheld receiver plus small transmitter that fits nicely into the cargo bay.
A foldable Ground Control Target. Size is 100X100 cm, weight is 0,43 kg. It is made of durable plastic, white on one side, black on the other and sold in sets of 10. An useful addition to your kit and a professional reference item.
A backpack and a foldable stool that will make your work in remote areas comfortable.

To us, the moment you receive your Smartplanes system is just the beginning of our relationship. We are proud to include pilot training in our offer, as well as service for your first year of flying. That includes support over the phone or via e-mail as well as repairs. Forget having to order spare parts that can be tricky to attach to your drone; during the first year, we’ll take care of all maintenance. Should you need to send your drone to us for repairs, you’ll have it back in about a week.
After the first year, we offer the option to renew the service agreement for another year. We hope that your purchase will lead to a long-lasting relationship where we can help you work more efficiently.
While we at SmartPlanes recognize that accidents happen and the end user might experience a set of events leading to a, for the UAV/UAS disastrous outcome, be it anything from accidentally slamming the car trunk or stepping on the equipment to rapid change in weather conditions, we are also very confident in the build and quality of our UAV/UAS.
In recognition of this and knowing how important the UAV/UAS is to our customers’ daily business we have decided to offer unlimited maintenance and support for those deciding to sign a new or renew their existing service agreement. This is a significant change from the earlier 8 hours of free maintenance and support included in the earlier service agreement.
The new service agreement is only valid if signed directly with SmartPlanes. Resellers may have different agreements.
Customers with the old service agreement will be offered an opportunity to upgrade their existing version at a favorable fee.
