Phoenix LiDAR is a leading developer of survey-grade aerial LiDAR systems for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and unmanned systems.

airborne lidar system

Our versatile laser scanning solutions can be mounted on a wide range of platforms, including fixed-wing and multirotor drones, USVs (unmanned surface vessels) and land-based mobile mapping vehicles.

Our Technology

Our airborne LiDAR solutions take advantage of state-of-the-art laser mapping technology that allows users to acquire high-resolution survey-grade data in real time, covering large areas faster and with more consistency than traditional terrestrial or mobile mapping methods.

All our products are integrated to meet your individual requirements for accuracy, environment, budget and overall capability.

We offer imaging options for hi-res photo, thermal, hyperspectral sensing and more, as well as optional GNSS reference stations, a laptop-based ground control station (GCS), and other accessories.

Every LiDAR system is thoroughly and expertly tested to ensure that it is properly calibrated and ready to fly out of the box.

MissionGuidance Data Acquisition Improvement Software

MissionGuidanceMissionGuidance Data Acquisition Improvement Software provides real-time guidance for manned LiDAR data acquisition operators that improves accuracy and closes the gap in data quality between manned aircraft and UAVs, reducing gaps and repeated flights.

The software visualises pre-defined flight plans to the pilot relative to the aircraft’s current position, allowing real-time adjustments to be made and ensuring all data collection passes are made within tolerance.

FlightPlanner Software

FlightPlannerUAV Flight Planner software is a free web-based service offered to all our clients that allows UAV LiDAR operators to precisely plan missions and experiment with different parameters before flying.

The intuitive interface allows users to select areas of interest, input a variety of flight parameters such as altitude and velocity and see how they will affect the mission, and export a KMZ file directly to the drone.
