  2. Pelixar LAB - a multirotor UAV, fully equipped as an open research and educational stand for tests, didactics, automation equipment testing, and UAV control.
  3. Flight Simulator Kit - devices designed for the initial phase of flight training and the consolidation of trained pilots' habits.

Ground Photogrammetric Cameras:

  1. Nikon D5300 Camera with GPS - a visible light camera with a set of high-quality lenses for close-range photogrammetric measurements, including lenses:
  2. Nikon Nikkor 20 mm f/1.8G AF-S ED
  3. Nikon AF-S 35 mm f/1.8 G ED Nikkor
  4. Nikon Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4G AF-S
  5. Synchronized Photographic Cameras 2x Canon EOS 5D
  6. Sony A6000 Visible Light Camera with a set of lenses included in the Pelixar Light Pollution (LP) kit.


Low-Altitude Aerial Cameras for Matrice 300:

  1. MICASENSE MX Red and MICASENSE MX Blue Cameras - a multispectral head with 10 channels, mountable on DJI, manual mounting, and Pelixar LP UAVs.
  2. Micasense Altum PT with a DJI head - a multispectral camera with thermal and panchromatic ranges.
  3. DJI Zemnuse XT2 Thermal Imaging Camera for thermal photogrammetric measurements.
  4. DJI Zemnuse L1 Laser Scanner - an aerial laser scanner.
  5. DJI Zmnuse P1 Camera with 24 mm, 35 mm, and 50 mm lenses: high-resolution visible light camera.
  6. Share 102S V3 Camera - a multi-camera aerial photogrammetric head with 102 MPix, DJI mount for photogrammetric measurements.
  7. 2x DJI RTK Mobile Station - for precise positioning of DJI drones in flight.

Aerial Training


Aerial training is conducted in the MR NSTS1 and 5 category (VLOS, BVLOS) as part of the curriculum in the 6th semester. Students obtain state qualifications issued by the Civil Aviation Authority.

3D Design and 3D Printing


We design models and print them.

Learning 3D printing and reverse engineering from 3D scans is conducted as part of the didactic activities in the Low-Altitude Photogrammetry profile.

We print CAD models as well as models generated from photogrammetric flights.
