What does the training consist of and is it web based?
The training is hands on and in person, either in San Diego or at your site (standard GSA per diem and travel costs are added.) The training is designed for up to five students per instructor. Additional students beyond this will require more laptops and software licenses.

The training is standard industry practice OEM. Many customers are familiar with drones and photogrammetry but not LiDAR; flying LiDAR collections is different as it is an active sensor. Modus AI wants to ensure that you are successful in field operations, as well as understanding and being able to do the six-step workflow, resulting in a geocalibrated raw point cloud.
We also use this time to assess the client’s flying proficiency. A drone is only $5000 but the sensors run in excess of $50,000. This is why we certify/qualify every operator.

Are shipping days part of the rental?
NO - we charge for useable days. We expect the equipment to arrive on a certain date. The next day will start the rental time period. Shipping is charged as part of the rental as a line item on the quote. We understand there may be rain days, set up, or natural delays with the site. We found that 3 days works the best for most customers. On the last day, the postage is already paid as part of the contract. Simply take the equipment to a UPS store and they will get it back to us.
What are the average 3-day rentals cost?
Call for pricing and availability? We recommend six weeks’ notice as the equipment is in high demand.
