Galaxy CM2000 Corridor LiDAR Scanner for UAVs/Drones

Airborne LiDAR sensor with adjustable FOV

The Galaxy CM2000 is a next-generation airborne LiDAR scanner designed specifically for low-flying corridor mapping applications. With a measuring rate of up to 2 million points per second, it captures the most precise details of corridor elements such as power cables and pylons, railway signs and cellular tower antennas, and can also detect fine changes in the ground over time for pipeline monitoring.

Galaxy CM2000 Corridor LiDAR Scanner

The flexible low-footprint sensor features an adjustable field of view that can be narrowed to the exact width of the corridor, allowing laser measurements to be focused on a precise target. Built-in roll compensation corrects for UAV turbulence, maintaining a constant swath width on the ground.

With point density and efficiency previously seen only with dual-beam sensors, and the highest-quality data precision and accuracy, the CM2000 enables advanced analytics, insights, and decision making for a wide variety of corridor mapping and scanning applications.
