Request For Quote

LiHawk is an aerial LiDAR surveying system designed for large area and long-range 3D data collection projects. The system is designed to be mounted to a fixed-wing airplane platform or multi-rotor UAV and features a Riegl VUX-1LR laser scanner coupled with a best-in-class inertial measurement unit (IMU) for increased point cloud accuracy and precision. LiHawk is well-suited for projects aiming to map terrain features beneath forest canopies and extract structural parameters from forest LiDAR data. The centimeter-level accuracy of this measurement device will meet the rigorous accuracy demands of civil engineering and critical infrastructure maintenance professionals. And the high-definition digital camera module can be used to generate photogrammetry products as well as true color 3D point clouds during each LiDAR survey.


Key Features of LiHawk LiDAR for Drone


The system can be mounted on different platforms (e.g. Multi-Rotor UAV LiAir series or fixed-wing airplane platform) for data collection.


LiHawk is a highly integrated LiDAR system, with only 4.0 kg weight without a camera. The system supports an external solid-state drive to store the collected data, which eliminates the time to download data from the system and improves operational efficiency.
