Geoscan 401 Lidar system with an AGM-MS3 laser scanner and a Sony A6000 camera

System description

The Geoscan 401 Lidar system can take off from a 5 m radius site, work in confined space and accurately bend round relief. It carries an AGM-MS3 laser scanner and a Sony A6000 camera with a 20 mm lens. The system allows to survey forests and areas with tall vegetation, sites with elevation differences and vertical surfaces, and acquire 3D relief models.

An onboard Novatel GNSS-receiver and a professional Sony camera help create high precision geotagged orthomosaic maps and 3D models of sites or separate objects.

Laser scanner for UAV AGM-MS3

Cost-effective multifunctional solution for mobile and airborne laser scanning from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Usual applications: engineering surveys; creating three-dimensional models of infrastructure objects; inventory and diagnostics of the roads and railways; creating GIS for various purposes; mine surveying; and others.

The weight of the laser scanner for the UAV is 1.5 kg, which makes it easy to install it on a wide range of unmanned aerial vehicles. The AGM-MS3 laser scanner is designed for fully autonomous operation with minimal operator involvement, which makes survey easy, fast and convenient. The ability to integrate external cameras – from panoramic to thermal imaging, opens an unlimited number of applications.
