Centimetre perfect mapping with the DJI Phantom 4 RTK

The Phantom 4 RTK enjoys all the features and technology DJI is globally renowned for in their drone mapping platforms. A true commercial offering, the Phantom 4 RTK is already field-proven in mapping applications across the globe in industries ranging from mining to forestry. Compact, flight stable and technology ‘packed’, it is considered one of the world's best low altitude mapping solutions.

Exceptional low-altitude mapping

An RTK module is integrated directly into the drone, providing real-time, centimeter-level positioning for absolute accuracy on image data.
With RTK and GNSS on board, the Phantom 4 RTK optimises flight safety while ensuring precise data is captured for surveying, mapping and inspection workflows.
The new onboard TimeSync system continually aligns the flight controller, camera and RTK module during flight operations.

The Phantom 4 RTK has a 25mm, 20 megapixel CMOS sensor (camera). With its high-resolution, it can achieve a Ground Sample Distance (GSD) of 2.74 cm at 100 meters flight altitude.
The flight planning modes allow you to select the drone’s flight path while adjusting overlap rate, altitude, speed and camera parameters.
The Phantom 4 RTK is compatible with the DJI Mobile SDK, allowing it to access functions, automation
and customisation through a mobile device.

World class mapping technology in a compact, sophisticated drone package

On-going research, development and field experience has led to the creation of the Phantom 4 RTK. With commercial standard on board mapping technology from RTK to GNSS, it is adaptable to almost any workflow with the ability to connect its positioning system to the D-RTK 2 Mobile Station orNTRIP (Network Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol). In addition, you can use a 4G dongle, WiFi hotspot, or even store the satellite observation data for Post Processed Kinematics (PPK). On the transmission side, with the new OcuSync system, it enjoys stable and reliable HD image and video transmission at up to 7km! Overall, this is a serious commercial mapping platform.
