Flight Specifications: altitude 120’, speed 27mph

The RedTail LiDAR System is a superior point cloud generation tool that helps streamline workflows and make informed crop and livestock management decisions that result in reduced costs and increased productivity.

Designed specifically for use on unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System combines the agility and operability of a drone with a superior point cloud generation tool to create high resolution, highly accurate 3D maps of your agricultural land. 

Data collected with the RedTail LiDAR System can be used to: 1) create slope and sunlight exposure area maps, 2) monitor irrigation and fertilizer needs, 3) detect crop damage, analyze stand counts, and estimate harvest yield, 4) identify and minimize the impact of pests and disease 5) observe plant growth and detect areas of irregularities, 6) map water flow and catchments, 7) monitor erosion, soil loss, and assess storm damage, 8) calculate grove maturity, and 9) assess livestock health and determine optimal foraging areas. 

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for your agricultural mapping, monitoring and assessment needs. 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 provides you with timely and accurate information, reducing cost and increasing productivity.

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
