Mini-DSL

THE PERFECT BLENDING OF DRONE AND LIDAR

The Mini-DLS solution is our entry-level airborne LiDAR solution.  This excellent, integrated system features the advanced DJI M200/210 v1 Matrice quadcopter drone and Velodyne VLP-16 “Puck” LiDAR sensor.  To ensure accurate, real-time attitude of your drone during data-collection missions, the Mini-DLS can be flown with state-of-the-art Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)s to ensure your data is 0.2′ and below.  Your Mini-DLS can produce fine-resolution digital elevation and digital terrain models, volumetric scans, vegetation scans, to name just a few of the possible applications!

WHY MINI

lIGHT AND COMPACT

Small Jobs- Mini’s small size allows you to easily transport and get to a job site.  This job is perfect for doing daily projects under 100HA.  

Increase productivity

Mini makes you money if you use this instead of manual projects requiring over 3 days of traditional work.

Higher flight safety

No More Crashing into Terrain. We can’t say you will not crash.  That is up to your judgement.  However the pairing of the Lite 8 or 16 with M200 allows object detection, greatly reducing your chancing of an accident. 

Quality data

Not all Lidar is the same.  Our engineers take the time to tune and calibrate each laser to ensure the highest accuracy is possible for this class of lidar sensor.  We also use top end positional components to ensure you the best data possible.

TRAINING

DRONE LIDAR FIELD TRAINING 

With a Google Earth-like 3D mission planner interface, operators have an easier time navigating the environment and can plan more complex missions that regular software doesn’t allow. Moreover, a 3D mission planning environment gives more control allowing to view the created flight plan from all angles, taking into account any obstacles such as terrain or buildings.

DRONE DATA TRAINING LEVEL 1 

Here we go beyond just generating a point cloud and explore how to turn lidar into basic early stage products and load into over 350 different file types.  This 1-day course was specifically designed for drone pilots looking to expand their business capabilities, companies which are looking to integrate this emergent technology into their traditional workflow, and business executives needing drone-based LiDAR technical training. 

This is our highest reviewed course.  Come find out why.
