MODUS will support you in every step of the way. For instance, we will provide on-boarding training to ensure that you can professionally use the equipment for field services to make sure that you get it right when it counts.

MODUS SUCCESS SUPPORT TEAM
World Class Tech Support
1 on 1 support. We don’t just fix your problem but we take the time for you to understand what went wrong.
Field Representative Options
Let’s face it, most people don’t know LiDAR and you are probably using it to build your business. While we have great training and support materials, sometimes your team needs a little extra help. Our field professionals will coach you all the way through your process, from planning, field execution, to processing the data.
Field Office Data Processing
Need help processing your data. You can count on our professional data analysts to help you get the job done. (fees apply)
We supply you with checklists, step-by-step operator manuals, video teleconferencing, and more. Discover the MODUS difference.
How to Qualify
We have an outstanding training program designed to be tailored from the new user to experienced geospatial professionals.
We require every company to have proof of insurance with full replacement coverage for the unit.
Proof of Flight Experience
You don’t drive construction equipment without an operator’s license. A high-end drone package isn’t any different.
We require all operators to have their part 107 certification and to provide proof of over 20 hours of 1000-class multi-rotor flight time.
MODUS Rental Training
LiDAR Operator Training
This two-day course covers everything you need to plan, collect, and post-process LiDAR data to create a raw geo-corrected point cloud.
LiDAR LEVEL 1 Training
This optional one-day course picks up where we left off with the Operator Course. You will learn how to do basic classification, visualization, and convert files into over 250 popular formats to allow 3rd party software to process your data. We highly encourage this course.
We offer a simple, “no-fuss” rental process. We offer an easy, one-price cost i.e. no hidden costs for taxes or shipping costs. This makes bidding a job easy. When you have won your bid, simply schedule and hold your equipment with a 100% refundable deposit. When you are finished with the job, just drop it in the mail with one of our return mailing slips.
IT IS THAT EASY!

Add DATA PROCESSING SERVICES to your rental
When you need to leverage professional data analysts to get the job done right.
Raw Calibrated Point Cloud
A raw geo-corrected point cloud is the base product LiDAR equipment produces. However, as you start out, you may want to make sure you have a team of data analysts behind you to ensure you can wow your customer. Perfect when you are trying to do big jobs or your company is new to LiDAR.
Point Cloud Classification
Classification assigns points into groups with useful and logical categories, such as points on a road surface, building roofs, trees, etc. Without the proper training, experience, and software, renters can spend hours of tedious work trying to isolate the data of interest.
MODUS has your U.S. team to make sure you can deliver downstream data products to support your customer.
Colorized Point Cloud
Need RGB LiDAR data? No problem. Let our professionals take your imagery and LiDAR data and fuse them to create a 3D colorized image. This would provide your customer all the color they see from photogrammetry with all the accuracy and under vegetation coverage of LiDAR.
Drone Rental Insurance
It has never been easier to obtain commercial UAV insurance coverage on your drone, mapping equipment, and rentals.
TALK TO ONE OF OUR SPECIALISTS
What do I need to have in order to Rent drone lidar?
You need 4 things
1. Part 107 License or equivalent
2. Full Replacement Insurance Coverage
3. Refundable Security Deposit
4. MODUS Drone Lidar Training Certification
What does the training consist of and is it web based?
Training is now broken into two parts:
1. Online – This is all the theory and lectures. Everything you need to know to be successful with LiDAR.
2. Practical Hands-on – This is the time one-on-one with qualified LiDAR specialist to hone field operations and post-process skills.
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.
For our online training, check out Learn.MODUS-ai.com.
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.
What does a drone lidar rental cost?
This depends on the duration, type of equipment. We have weekly, monthly and quarterly rates with discounts. We also have subscription services and LiDAR “payload-only” rentals so you can use your own drone system and save on the shipping costs.
Inquire at Info@modus-ai.com
Are shipping days part of the rental?
NO – we charge for usable 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 that there may be rain days, set up, or natural delays with the site. We found that 3 days works the best for majority of 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.
- Part 107 certification
- Proficiency check and flight log review
- MODUS LiDAR and Operations training course for each operator.
- We also require proof of insurance with Modus as COI and full replace coverage of the equipment being rented from us.
- Small refundable deposit or a hold on a charge card to cover small damage like missing rotor blades, lost iPad, etc.
Why do we require training?
We want you to succeed. Even if you have used other LiDAR systems before, every manufacturer does their workflow a bit different. We know, we have worked with a lot of them.
Also, this creates a safe environment to learn and experiment. The last thing you want is your team learning this for the first time on a job site. You will lose money.
Last quality control. We know that when you certify with us that you will be able to operate safely and protect your insurance policy.
