Flight Specifications: altitude 200’, speed 18 mph

When it comes to corridor mapping and planning, RedTail UAV Systems create high resolution, highly accurate, 3D maps of powerlines, pipelines, highways, and railway corridor projects, quickly and without endangering people.

Building and maintaining safe and reliable energy and transportation corridors can present a multitude of challenges. Traversing dangerous and remote areas, as well as navigating complex urban centers, these vitally important corridors can be difficult to survey, map, analyze and monitor, putting these critical assets at risk. 

Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System combines the agility and operability of a drone with a superior point cloud generation tool. 

Data collected from corridor flights can be used to: 1) create topographic maps and boundary surveys prior to construction, 2) inspect and monitor conditions of existing infrastructure, 3) collect accurate position information of wires, structures, vegetation and terrain, 4) improve maintenance planning and scheduling for crews and equipment, 5) monitor the safety clearance area around power and pipe lines, 6) monitor environmental conditions including fault and landslide hazard detection, wetlands, and river crossings, and 7 ) assess and monitor road surface damage, and compute cross section
parameters and road alignment. 

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal tool to help you plan, build, and monitor your next corridor project. With a pulse repetition rate of up to 400,000 pulses per second, even ground-point distribution, superior ranging capability, and optimized scan angles, the RedTail LiDAR System will exceed your energy and transportation corridor needs.

High-Resolution Point Cloud
Flight Specifications: altitude 100’, speed 13mph

The RedTail LiDAR System –
incorporating LiDAR technology licensed from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory – is designed to provide high-resolution imaging from multicopters, hybrid, and fixed-wing UAVs.

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.

Construction

Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System is a superior point cloud generation tool that can help you manage all stages of the construction process.

​With no interference to operations or construction activities, the RedTail LiDAR System quickly creates high resolution point clouds which can be imported directly into construction and architectural software solutions.

​From roadways and waterways, to airports and commercial development projects, data collected with the RedTail LiDAR System can be used to:

  • ​conceptualize designs
  • evaluate sightlines and distances
  • complete topographic maps and boundary surveys
  • confirm as-bid conditions
  • determine flood elevations
  • map vegetation and wetlands to support environmental assessment studies
  • monitor construction impacts
  • survey projects in hazardous areas without endangering the crew or the public
  • document as-built plan

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for construction project planning, mapping, and monitoring.
