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
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.
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.
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.
What We Bring
Drone Flight Instructor
Remote Sensing Geospatial Expert
- We bring one drone lidar system with all the equipment an company will bring to the field.
- We present all the software to plan, fly, collect, compile, check accuracy, view, and post process.
What We Need From the Host
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:
- Features you want captured. (Forrest, power lines, etc)
- Outside of Controlled Airspace.
- Property Owner Approval.
- Sparsely populated area.
- 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.
