Quantum-Systems Tron Custom Payload & Configurations

Tron Custom Payload Configuration

With its large payload compartment and wingspan of 3.5 meters the Tron is able to provide a safe option for payloads up to 2 kg / 4.41 pounds. The high payload allows the Tron to operate as an ideal platform for LIDAR applications

If applications require a little bit more than the Trinity can offer, the Tron will be the right platform for you.

Survey Payload Compartment (SPC) – RGB Cameras

Sony RX1 RII

The Sony RX1 RII is a lightweight, fast focusing camera with a remarkable lens for collecting pictures with an excellent image quality. The details and the color rendition impress with exceptional quality. A 35 mm lens, a 42 MP full frame sensor satisfy even the highest demands (e.g. GSD: 1,3 cm at 100m flight altitude)

You need very high precision in your mapping tasks? This sensor will not disappoint you!

Agriculture Payload Compartment (APC) – Multispectral Camera

Tetracam MCAW

The Tetracam MCAW is a camera type with an array of 6 aligned and synchronized multi-spectral cameras. Users select the filters that they insert between the lens and the sensor in order to restrict the radiation that contacts the sensor to a narrow band of wavelengths. The filters can be replaced by users in the field to detect different wavelengths at different times for diffrenet purposes.

  • 1,3 MP CMOS sensors.
  • 9,6 mm Fixed Lens
  • 6 User selectable narrow-band filters (~450 nm to ~1000 nm)

The combination of filters selected by the user enables the system to sense a unique spectral signature to identify one or more kind s of plants, plant conditions or other compounds.

Combined Payload Compartment (CPC) Option


This package combines the Sony RX1RII and the multispectral camera Tetracam MCAW.

This is the ideal combination in need of ultra-high precision data recorded by the Sony RX1RII for cartography reasons and multispectral pictures in a variety of bands recorded by the Tatracam MCAW.

Payload example: LIDAR Integration

in 2017 Quantum-Systems started a cooperation with YellowScan in order to successfully integrate an airborne LiDAR system

The Tron LIDAR payload compartment has been designed to integrate the YellowScan Surveyor & Surveyor Ultra LiDAR scanner. This Airborne LIDAR Survey Bundle allows survey missions up to 90 minutes with a 180 degree field of view at altitudes up to 80m above ground.

This solution gives the Tron a full range of LiDAR capabilities and enhances the range of geospatial solutions for our customers.
