Another successful LIDAR mission in collaboration with our partner IR Technic in Malaysia!
Mapping of hill cliff for the Public Works Department of Malaysia (JKR), for corrosion and landslide study using high-end scanning lasers (LIDAR) with accuracy up to 1cm.
The demand for LIDAR mapping using UAV/Drone helicopters has grown considerably due to lower operating cost compared to full-sized manned airplane or helicopter, as well as mapping accuracy obtained using laser sensors.
In addition, UAV helicopters have the advantages of Vertical Takeoff and Landing, while being able to carry significantly more payload compared to similar sized airplane or multirotor platform, plus longer flight time.
