Dual Heading as standardEach Routescene UAV LiDAR system option is equipped with dual antenna GNSS to establish heading. This is the best method and provides not only position and velocity but also a true heading which remains accurate even when stationary. Read more.

Options

RS1RS2RS3RS4
Include a survey grade INS sensor? This improves the accuracy of the overall system by approximately:x2x2
Include an RTK receiver in the Ground Station?1) This transmits Real Time Kinematic (RTK) corrections to the LidarPod in-flight and enables you to create a high accuracy point cloud immediately after the mission is complete.

2) Provides the ability to process using Post-Processed Kinematic (PPK) and\or improves the accuracy of the overall system by having a very short PPK baseline.
