A variety of mission profiles
Multi-scope mobile (ground) and UAV (airborne) mapping systems
The system can be deployed rapidly on road vehicles as well as on all types of UAV (multicopter, traditional, and VTOL fixed-wing).
This flexibility allows you to expand your range of applications (e.g. vertical elements or no-fly zones), which will increase your return on investment and thereby decrease the system’s payback period.
