YellowScan Launches Lidar Surveying Solution - 24/02/2016
YellowScan is pleased to announce the global launch of its new Lidar UAS surveying solution with its highest accuracy and most dense geo-referenced point cloud data: 3cm accuracy – 300 000 shots/s – 1.5kg.
R&D development for the YellowScan Surveyor solution started in early 2015 with the same philosophy and technology foundation that has made the YellowScan Mapper. With a robust and fully integrated system designed to meet the needs of most demanding survey professionals and terrain, YellowScan Surveyor is quickly and easily adapted to any drone, generating data when and where you need it.
The team has carefully selected and deployed the best high-end components for unparalleled performance; for example, the Applanix APX15 single board GNSS-Inertial solution chosen for its highly accurate position and orientation solution for direct geo-referencing.
The YellowScan Surveyor does not replace the YellowScan Mapper, but complements the YellowScan product family with a solution ideally suited for precise topography and demanding requirements for civil engineering and mining applications.
YellowScan will demonstrate its ultralight Lidar aerial scanning system in Denver-USA on the 25 February in partnership with Juniper Unmanned. The YellowScan will be flown by Pulse Aerospace on their Vapor UAS.
The YellowScan Surveyor includes:
- High-end Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) allowing precision measurement of the attitude
- Dual-frequency GNSS receiver, capable of operating in RTK or PPK positioning mode
- Multi-echo laser scanner
- Onboard computer for continuous data acquisition and processing
- Battery (up to 1.5 hours of autonomy)
- Worldwide technical and operational support
