senseFly GeoBase


senseFly GeoBase is a fully integrated, easy-to-use and fully integrated base station of the renowned senseFly brand that allows most end users to have direct access to high-precision data. Thanks to its automatic detection and configuration in eMotion 3, users can be operational quickly. The senseFly GeoBase fully guarantees RTK and PPK fluid workflows.



The senseFly GeoBase is a highly-capable base station preconfigured for use with eMotion and senseFly drones. The senseFly GeoBase features:
1/ Dual-frequency L1/L2 code/carrier tracking of GPS and GLONASS signals
2/ Integrated Bluetooth (2.1 + EDR/4.0)
3/ Hot-swappable batteries
4/ Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM) support
5/ Auto-detection of correction type
6/ APME+ multipath mitigation technology
7/ ION+ advanced ionospheric scintillation mitigation
8/ Track+ for robust tracking under weak signal conditions
9/ GLO+, ultra-precise GLONASS bias calibration

















Using the senseFly GeoBase with eMotion

The senseFly GeoBase starts logging as soon as you power it on. You can use the senseFly GeoBase:
1/ Connected to eMotion and providing in-flight RTK corrections eMotion has been preconfigured with the senseFly GeoBase’s parameters. eMotion will find the logs automatically.
2/ Standalone, then use PPK corrections after the flight. You must find the logs yourself.


About the senseFly GeoBase’s logs

The senseFly GeoBase does not log RINEX; its logs are in a proprietary format (.sbf).

You can find its logs in the geobase folder within eMotion’s data folder.

If you process your senseFly GeoBase’s logs using eMotion’s Flight Data Manager, you do not need to convert them to RINEX.

You can choose how your logs are organised into folders in the Geobase panel within eMotion’s Options function tab.


Using the senseFly GeoBase as a rover

senseFly supplies the senseFly GeoBase configured for use only as a base station (the drone acts as the rover). If you want to use the senseFly GeoBase as a rover, this capability will need to be activated. Contact your support provider for instructions.
