INSTRUCTORS

Unlike a lot of other companies in the market today,
we send a minimum of two instructors for each training event.

Remote Sensing Geospatial Specialist

NGA College Master Instructors. Our instructors have an extensive military background, with decades of remote sensing experience in satellite, aerial, and mobile data analysis and product development.

Lidar Drone Data Acquisition Specialist

Military trained experts experienced in drone flight data collection and sensor optimization. Our flight instructors have thousands of hours flying both manned and unmanned systems.

WHO NEEDS THIS COURSE

Purchasing Equipment

LiDAR is very different from other drone remote sensing systems.  Good training can mean the difference between weeks of experimentation or going out and working.

Renting Equipment

Some of our manufacturers and partners have rental programs.  All of them require training before they rent a company equipment for the first time.

Professional Training by Professional

Lets face it, LiDAR is not like using a camera drone.  This 2-day course is for people who know what system they want to use and want to get out right away with a rental or purchased system and make money.

Easy Step By Step Processes

All our training breaks down each task in the workflow into short easy to understand modules.  You don't have to be a geospatial scientist or a surveyor to understand.

Trouble shooting

We don't just teach you how to use the system, we teach you how to fault isolate and correct mistakes.  We realize you can't call tech support from the field and we believe if we train you right , you will never have to call.

Requirements

What We Bring

Instructors

Drone Flight Instructor

Our fully certified drone pilots have flown commercial drones and military helicopters over 10 years and conducting precision data collection.  Learn how to properly collect lidar, fly safe, and best flight practices from real experts.

Remote Sensing Geospatial Expert

We will try to send analysts that match your industry.  Our experts have been developing workflows for the government but go around the world at a national level teaching professionals how to use these technologies to change.

Equipment

Hardware

  • We bring one drone lidar system with all the equipment an company will bring to the field.

Software

  • We present all the software to plan, fly, collect, compile, check accuracy, view, and post process.

What We Need From the Host

Presentation Space

Half of the course is classroom presentations of the technology, workflow, and data products.

A presentation space adequate for the number of people attending with:

  • Presentation Table for a 3-foot diameter drone
  • HDMI UHD TV
  • A power source for laptops and drones

Safe Flying Area

Flight Demonstrations require safe flight area.  This area should include:

  1. Features you want captured. (Forrest, power lines, etc)
  2. Outside of Controlled Airspace.
  3. Property Owner Approval.
  4. Sparsely populated area.
  5. The optimum area (10 - 40 acres or 1 mile of river, etc)

Other Important Information

Class size: While we do not have a maximum audience size, the more attendees the less experience our customers tend to receive. We recommend eight to one student to instructor ratio.

 We suggest limiting the demonstration to company decision-makers and technical experts, who would gain the most from a first-hand experience prior to purchasing our services.

Hours: Plan for a full 8 hour training day with a 1-hour lunch break. Typical hours of instruction are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. unless coordinated in advance.
