The new high performance LiDAR and Imagery Data Collection System for UAVs -> Download the Brochure
COMING FROM SITECO’S CONSOLIDATED EXPERIENCE IN THE LIDAR MAPPING SYSTEMS SKY-SCANNER EXPLOITS THE BENEFITS IN THE UAV AIRBORNE SURVEYS
The development project was spearheaded in collaboration with LTS, shareholder of UNISKY (spinoff of the Venice University) and ASCO-DAITO Co. Ltd., Japanese leader of surveying, inspection and environmental engineering.
The new Sky-Scanner is a high performance airborne data collection system that fills the gap between the low-cost low-altitude photogrammetry approach of current UAV systems, and the more complex and expensive lidar systems typically deployed on manned fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
The system is delivered as a compact and light configuration with up to 5-hour data collection time, with its own independent batteries.
Thanks to its perfectly integrated highest quality components, Sky-Scanner produces very consistent, accurate and well structured data, both in terms of point-clouds and orthophotos.
Adaptable to any mid-range UAV (already tested on DJI-S1000 and DJI-Matrice-600), or other aircrafts.
The flight plan can be programmed with any mission planning software (ex: DJI Ground Station).
Best-practice initialization procedure for the Inertial System, without any loss of autonomy.
The post-processing software generates georeferenced LAS files, starting from the SBET obtained with the POSPac.
The LAS files and the ortophotos can be imported and processed in any point-cloud management software (Terrascan, Riscan, Orbit, JRC, etc) to get the most required and expected deliverables:
Classification and Ground Control Point calibration
Cross-sections and profiles
Feature extraction and Mapping
Applanix AP15 Inertial Navigation System, with 2 GPS receivers and antennas (less than 0.08° RMS on heading, and 0,025° RMS on pitch and roll)
Velodyne VLP 16 Puck-Lite or Puck Hi-res laser-scanner with 300.000 PPS speed and ±3 cm accuracy
Sony A5000 camera 20-24 Mpx, synchronized with the Inertial Navigation System
