Case Study

Next-Generation Aerial LiDAR Mapping

LidarUSA’s ScanLook Revolution features an integrated VN-300 Dual-Antenna Inertial Navigation System. The combined system provides easy-to-use, efficient and cost effective LiDAR mapping capabilities targeted at applications such as law enforcement for accident scene reconstruction, archeology and encroachment monitoring.

LIDAR Mapping, VN-300

UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) mapping is a booming industry. One company taking advantage of the technological advances is LiDAR USA with the ScanLook Revolution integrating the VN-300 Dual-Antenna Inertial Navigation System. The combined system provides LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) mapping capabilities targeted at applications that require a fast, efficient, cost effective and easy-to-use solution.

The size, weight and power requirements of legacy LiDAR mapping systems primarily limited their use to manned aircraft. Overall hardware and operations costs also resulted in the need to map large areas to maintain financial feasibility. Recent advances in both LiDAR and inertial navigation technology have enabled a new generation of mapping systems that weigh just a few hundred grams and fit in the palm of your hand. LiDAR units are now also affordable enough for small businesses to develop services around this technology with a meaningful return on investment.
