Skycatch Edge1 Now Available Worldwide, Built by DJI

SAN FRANCISCO – Skycatch has announced the first-of-its-class, on-premise data processing and GNSS base station, the Skycatch Edge1. Manufactured in partnership with DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, the Skycatch Edge1 is now available worldwide.

Tested and optimized for the Skycatch Explore1 and DJI Phantom 4 RTK drones, the self-positioning Edge1 allows commercial drone users the ability to process and receive data without the need for internet or cellular connectivity. Simply fly, process the data, and receive centimeter-level data outputs in 30 minutes or less, directly to your tablet. Never before has data been this reliable and accessible for on-site field teams. 2D maps and 3D point clouds are available for viewing and sharing directly from the accompanied tablet.

The Edge1 concept began as the perfect companion to the Skycatch Explore 1 drone. Now, a new generation of the Edge1 will support all DJI drones, including the recently released DJI Phantom 4 RTK, and will process any 2D geotagged images.  In addition to a survey-grade GNSS base station, the Edge1 includes built-in WiFi, LTE, reliable sub 5 cm accuracy, and delivers high-quality data outputs. Built around a state of the art compute module, the Edge1 is also capable of running deep learning algorithms to extract more insights from your data in near real-time.

“It’s truly a revolutionary product that we’re excited to make available to the DJI community, and the construction and mining industry at large. With the partnership and support of DJI, the Edge1 will be assembled with precision execution in their world-class manufacturing facility, and will be available faster to the customer,” said Christian Sanz, Founder & CEO of Skycatch.

“As the commercial drone industry has grown, the amount of data collected by our enterprise users is unprecedented,” said Jan Gasparic, Director of Strategic Partnerships at DJI. “We are glad to work with Skycatch to manufacture the Skycatch Edge 1 GNSS base receiver, enabling enterprise customers, especially those in the construction industry, to process data from their DJI drones on-site and in real-time.”

The Edge1 is available in select markets worldwide, for more information, please visit www.skycatch.com/airworks.
