The Draganfly Long Range LiDAR (DLR-LiDAR) is designed to capture survey-grade 360-degree point cloud data, based around cutting-edge technology including a Trimble laser scanner and Applanix GNSS-IMU. It can be mounted on multirotor, fixed-wing or helicopter UAVs as well as mobile mapping vehicles.
With a range of up to 750 metres (2460 feet), the drone LiDAR system produces 0.5cm point cloud precision with 2cm global accuracy, and captures high-resolution data at 2 million points per second. Four laser returns enable capture of more ground points, resulting in high-accuracy bare earth models through even the thickest vegetation.
The Draganfly LiDAR system includes pre-processing software for converting raw LiDAR, IMU, and GNSS data into point clouds, and additional post-processing software is available for further processing and analysis.
