Ground-vehicle LIDAR (laser-scan)

SONAR (underwater)

FODAR (creating 3D rendered point cloud - structure from motion) using photographic techniques provides an alternative to LIDAR for certain applications - especially augmented reality applications.

  • Electric power transmission vegetation management (augmented reality)
  • Pipeline mapping (underground)
  • Leak / Void detection and mapping
  • Change detection
  • Corridor (rights-of-way) encroachment assessment
  • Volumetrics
  • Thermal imagery

Technologies

  • Helicopter deployment
  • Eliptical scan pattern
  • Point density (20 points/square meter)
  • Uniform / consistent ground coverage
  • Absolute (in-the-field) accuracy = 6"
  • Typical scan widths (300' to 1000')
  • Typical height-above-ground = 600'
  • Corridor / Area scanning
  • LIDAR intensity imagery
  • Multiple returns (4) for each laser pulse

Airborne LIDAR (laser scan)

Aerotec provides ground-vehicle LIDAR via its teaming partners (EMC, TopCon).

  • On-the-ground
  • On-the-water

Aerotec provides underwater side-scan imagery data (point cloud) via its teaming partner EMC.

  • Daylight, color oblique & ortho photography
  • Thermal (infrared) imagery
  • Hyperspectral imagery
  • High-resolution color inspection photos
  • ​Corona imagery
