YellowScan launches versatile, long-range platform LiDAR explorer

Sep 10, 2021

The Explorer can be mounted on a light manned aircraft or switched to different types of UAV platforms. The compact, versatile, long-range platform allows users to tackle a wide range of projects and mission profiles. The Explorer’s high-power laser scanner can catch points up to 600 meters away. Combining Explorer with YellowScan’s full suite of software solutions to extract and process point cloud data provides users with a highly accurate set of tools for surveying, forestry, environmental research, archaeology, industrial inspection, civil engineering, and mining. The Explorer comes with an Applanix APX-20 UAV GNSS/inertial solution, a precision of 2.6 cm, and an accuracy of 2.2 cm. Flight operation speed is 5 m/s to 35 m/s and it is capable of above-ground-level (AGL) altitude up to 300 m. Designed to be mounted on fixed-wing UAV, multi-rotor UAV, or manned aircraft, Explorer can enable a large variety of mission profiles. “We have been working on Explorer for the last three years, building on everything we have learned and achieved to date from a hardware, software, and component integration perspective,” Nassim Doukkali, R&D Project Manager, YellowScan, was quoted as saying. In 2017, YellowScan took part in a research project called FRELON, funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The goal was to develop a new standard for long-range LiDAR by bringing together innovative specialists like YellowScan to collaborate directly with Airbus Defense and Space, Delair, M3 Systems, and utility end-users EDF, RTE, Enedis, and SNCF to develop the next-generation solution to meet their requirements. “We are proud to finally release Explorer,” Tristan Allouis, CTO, YellowScan, was quoted as saying.
