Phoenix Aerial offers both scanning-as-a-service as well as customized scanning platforms for customers with diverse requirements.

Our team consists of industry leading specialists all focused on one task - inventing affordable, accurate and unrestricted measurement solutions.

What is LiDAR

Light Detection And Ranging works by sending laser pulses into many, accurately defined directions in fast succession. Measuring the time it takes for each laser-pulse to be reflected and returned to the LiDAR-scanner allows reconstruction of all surfaces surrounding the scanner. Dynamic LiDAR mapping further requires fusing the returned pulse with the accurate world-position of the scanner at that time, so that returned points can also be recorded in a world coordinate system.

Phoenix AL Details

Introducing an unmanned aerial LiDAR platform, so advanced, it redefines the possibilities of measurement sciences. Weighing less than 10kg, the Phoenix AL-2 combines the latest UAV, LiDAR and INS technology into a cost-effective, accurate and safe mapping solution. Featuring first-person-view navigation and a turnkey flight control system, the sensor platform can be guided effortlessly through complex terrain and urban architecture. Alternatively, the AL-2 can also navigate through pre-programmed waypoints, eliminating the need for manual control by a pilot.

The resulting point cloud can be imported in various software packages and used to measure distances, surfaces and volumes, reconstruct 3d models, plan maintenance work, compare against previous scans etc.
