CHC Navigation Introduces the APACHE 4 Hydrographic USV
A compact unmanned surface vehicle with integrated ADCP and echo sounder. Shanghai, China – May 6, 2021 - CHC Navigation (CHCNAV) releases the APACHE 4 marine drone featuring a combination of an ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) for cross-section flow measurements and a single-beam echo sounder. The APACHE 4 is a cutting-edge hydrographic USV that can carry all major ADCP sensors. It offers an unattended operation solution with shallow drafts, high navigational accuracy, and stable hovering to hydrologists when conducting water flow velocity and discharge measurements of a current section. "We designed the APACHE 4 to provide a reliable solution that can eliminate the construction and maintenance costs associated with traditional ADCP's ropeway towing systems, overcomeirregular navigational conditions that lead to poor data results, compensate for the resulting loss of ADCP measurement data and maintain compass accuracy in challenging environments," said Felix Ye, Product Manager of CHC Navigation’s Marine Division. "The outcome is the APACHE 4, which solves these challenges and entails conducting the high accuracy hydrological and hydrographic surveys." The CHCNAV APACHE 4 enables marine surveyors and engineers to modernize ADCP operations in a way that is proven to increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve safety. Integrated adaptive water flow straight-line and hovering technology – As the water flow and turbulence change, the autonomous control system allows the APACHE 4 to navigate in a straight course along the cross section according to the defined profile view. The hovering technology improves the flow estimation accuracy and ensures that the APACHE 4 hovers stably in the turbulent flow at the start and endpoint of the ADCP observation. Interrupted positioning with GNSS + IMU – The IMU sensor maintains the availability of position data even during transient GNSS signal loss. The obstacle avoidance radar system and live video feed guarantee safe operations in case of loss of visibility or difficult environmental conditions. Built-in Single-beam Echo sounder – Single beam sounding data expands your unmanned survey capability. It allows you to verify and compensate for the ADCP bottom tracking data accuracy, as well as provide water depth profile data associated with the flow velocity profile measurement. Compatible with most common ADCPs – The APACHE 4 can embed different types of ADCP sensors, such as the M9, RTDP 1200, RiverPro or RiverRay while providing them with positioning, orientation, power, waterproofing, local network and 4G transmission. Apache 4 is available now and further information for Apache 4 can be found here.2021-05-06

Geospatial World interview on digitalization and innovation in the geospatial industry
March 2021, Mao Xunye, Vice President of Global Sales at CHCNAV, was invited by Geospatial World to discuss digitalization and innovation in the geospatial industry. Interview Highlights The characteristics of the AEC industry today As geospatial technology manufacture, we gradually began to emphasize how well the technology interacts with users and how users quickly master technology. For instance, when talking about GNSS RTK in the past, we always focused on higher accuracy, more channels and longer radio distance. However, we leverage technology to increase productivity and quality right now. Our cloud-based technology is moving companies from manual, paper-based workflows to integrated, digital processes. These technologies are changing the game for the survey and construction industries, enabling infrastructure projects to be completed more efficiently and effectively – and to last longer than ever before. The future of the high-precision technology In the future, the software will work out the optimal process once surveyors set an objective. The technology will get users friendlier. With AI and advanced wireless tech, the surveyor will talk with the device. The new super cities will be like a human body, with sensors and feedback systems. As a result, 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), AI, Autonomy and Robotics will be standard. The direction of new infrastructure development The new infrastructure design needs to take demographics into account. Infrastructure should be more convenient, with better interfaces, visual aids, as well as faster medical response times. Remote collaboration, Augmented Reality and Big Geodata can help in modeling how businesses and residential complexes will use an area, which will help in designing the most efficient infrastructure. Geospatial surveying can create a digital model of physical Earth, which provides enhanced spatial intelligence and awareness whether you are working in utilities, mapping, cadastral survey, or infrastructure development.

CHC Navigation introduces the AlphaAir 450 LiDAR System
The lightest, most accurate and cost-effective UAV LiDAR system in its class. Shanghai, China - March 22, 2021 - CHC Navigation (CHCNAV) announced the release of the AlphaAir 450 (AA450) LiDAR system. The AlphaAir 450 is a very lightweight and compact all-in-one sensor. Featuring internal IMU, GNSS, 3D scanner and camera, the AlphaAir 450 solution is widely used for power line inspection, topographic mapping, emergency response, agricultural and forestry surveys, and more. The unit is easy to use, and it is allowed for rapid deployment in the field. "Despite the fact that the LiDAR scanning is an efficient technology to capture 3D data, it still often remains costly and complex to operate," said Andrei Gorb, Product Manager of CHC Navigation's Mobile Mapping Division. " Taking that into account, we introduce the AlphaAir 450 (AA450), a breakthrough LiDAR scanner, that delivers user-friendly and high-accuracy capabilities at a reasonable price.” There are three key aspects of the AlphaAir 450 that quickly created a buzz in the drone users’ community as a new solution for capturing geospatial data: Lightest unit in its class - With this new compact and lightweight solution that can be easily mounted on UAVs, data capture has become faster and more efficient. The LiDAR's weight is a constraint for any drone. The AlphaAir 450 weighs 1 kg, which is perfectly suited to the drones' payload requirements. The lighter the unit, the longer the operating time of the drone, and the greater the productivity. Advanced Accuracy - By combining industrial grade GNSS with a high precision IMU, the AlphaAir 450 can easily achieve an absolute accuracy of 5 cm (vertical) and 10 cm (horizontal) for small survey areas, which is typically adequate for the most use cases. To further improve precision and accuracy, users can apply adjustment algorithms in the CHCNAV CoPre software. Industrial Reliability - Featuring IP64 high-level protection, the AlphaAir 450 extends its operating temperature capabilities, down to -20℃ and up to +50℃, in any field environment and increases users' return on investment by providing more field survey days in a year.
