RedTail Featured in "10 UAV LiDAR products creating buzz"

Gone are those days when heavy LIDAR sensors had to be carried on an aircraft. With the new compact lightweight devices that could be easily mounted on UAVs along with advanced photogrammetry software, image processing has become faster and better. Valuable data obtained from these images can then be used by various governments, organizations and business for effective decision making.

Of late the LiDAR sensors have also integrated optical altimeter technology that helps to determine more accurate distance measurements above ground level. All this is done in accordance to weight and size required to fit in a UAV. These sensors have not only given an impetus to the LiDAR technology, but has made them cost-effective for UAV manufacturers too.

With tough completion and more requirement of this technology by various sectors, manufacturers of UAV LiDAR sensors have grown leaps and bounds with new products flooding the market every now and then. Let’s have a look at some of the best UAV LiDAR sensors in the market (continue reading)

Infrastructure

RedTail UAV LiDAR Infrastructure Mapping Application

Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System is a superior point cloud generation tool that can help you survey, map, analyze and monitor all of your infrastructure projects.

​The RedTail LiDAR System quickly creates high resolution point clouds which can be imported directly into mapping, design, and engineering software solutions, allowing you to assess and complete your infrastructure projects more effectively.

​From power lines and pipelines, to railways and roadways, data collected with the RedTail LiDAR System can be used to:

  • create detailed topographic maps
  • perform boundary surveys
  • inspect and monitor conditions of existing infrastructure
  • collect accurate position information of wires, structures, vegetation and terrain
  • improve maintenance planning and scheduling for screws and equipment
  • monitor vegetation and terrain changes around power lines and pipelines
  • monitor environmental conditions before and after an infrastructure development project
  • evaluate how new structures will integrate into an existing landscape

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for your infrastructure surveying, mapping, inspecting, analyzing, and monitoring needs.
