TOPODRONE AQUAMAPPER selected as a finalist for AUVSI XCELLENCE Awards

TOPODRONE has been named as a finalist in the XCELLENCE IN TECHNOLOGY of the XCELLENCE Awards by the Association for Uncrewed Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI). TOPODRONE AQUAMAPPER was selected from a pool of accomplished applicants as one of several finalists. 

TOPODRONE AQUAMAPPER is a drone-based solution for bathymetric surveying and marine construction. The multitasking data collecting device is designed for a wide range of applications in the maritime branch and other water sources. The product mounted on a UAV provides a combination of high-speed efficiency (up to 14 km/h) and accuracy, successfully challenging conventional surveying methods. It is a PPK ready solution, compatible with DJI Matrice 300 RTK. The combination of GNSS and Inertial measurement system helps to get accurate results after data post processing providing a new standard of accuracy, efficiency and flexibility.

This year, XPONENTIAL is all about designing a shared plan for the future of autonomy,” said Keely Griffith, Vice President of Strategic Programs at AUVSI. “There’s no better place to announce the 2023 XCELLENCE award finalists. Together, they are redefining what’s possible with uncrewed and robotic technology.”

AUVSI’s XCELLENCE Awards honor innovators with a demonstrated commitment to advancing autonomy, leading and promoting safe adoption of uncrewed systems and developing programs that use these technologies to save lives and improve the human condition.

“We developed AQUAMAPPER throughout 2022 and first presented the product at Intergeo 2022. Within half a year our solution has been applied in a number of European countries, USA, Israel, the Philippines and many other locations for bathymetric surveying and mapping. The key application areas include but are not limited to mining, construction, renewable energy and many more”, Maxim Baklykov, TOPODRONE CEO, explains.


Winners will be announced at XPONENTIAL 2023 on May 8-11 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO. Learn more about the AUVSI XCELLENCE awards here.
