Complete Package to Add Unmanned Aerial LiDAR to Your Geomatics Services – The Microdrones mdLiDAR1000 aaS is an end-to-end LiDAR solution combining a drone, LiDAR payload, fully integrated software workflow, and world-class support to consistently produce quality 3D point clouds optimized for land surveying, construction, oil & gas, and mining applications.

      The mdLiDAR1000 aaS consistently provides an accuracy of
6 cm (0.2 ft) when flown at 40 m (130 ft) at a speed of 3 m/s (6.7 mph).  It 
uses the lifting power, resilience and efficiency of the Microdrones aircraft platform to carry a perfectly integrated, lightweight, downward oriented LiDAR sensor that efficiently scans up to an 85 degree field of view.

      With Microdrones as a Service (mdaaS), customers deploy the full hardware and software solution as a service. Microdrones delivers access to its unique data processing software solution, mdInfinity, packaged with either the purchase or rental of the equipment. The mdLiDAR1000 aaS can help streamline your
current workflows to become more efficient, while helping you to complete more projects.
