Uncompromising Accuracy

The ROCK R1A uses best in class navigation and GNSS receiver system that transforms the operation of the R1A payload from a technical hardware to a Ready-To-Fly system that captures quality data. Every Time.  With the R1A navigation system, you can set up the R1A and be in the air capturing high quality data in under 5 minutes. The <0.006 deg Pitch and roll and < 0.03 deg Heading accuracy navigation system delivers sub 5cm accuracy on your LiDAR surveys.

Fast Setup

The R1A has a one click fast connector to attach with the skyport connector of the DJI M200 M300.  Quick connect also on the DJI M600 Freefly Systems AltaX Astro Watts Innovation PRISM and many more

1-Click  Desktop Software

Quickly generate georectified point cloud data with the ROCK post processing software.  Novatel Inertial Explorer quickly generates smoothed best estimate trajectory (SBET) that is used in the ROCK point cloud generation software.  Use the software to get a preview of data coverage before you leave the jobsite.
