TerraHawk V (VTOL) Fixed-wing LiDAR System Features: 4-6 Hour flight times Vertical Take off and landing capability eliminating the need for launchers and runways 75 meter scan range with the Velodyne VLP-16 sensor Excellent accuracy using the Sensonor STIM IMU Integrated high resolution photogrammety system using the Sony A6000 camera or Basler Ace Cameras Other external sensors can be integrated using the 16pin I/O connector, which also supplies protected 5V and 12V power. All systems can be used for mobile mapping in airborne and ground missions. When satellite reception is lost for extended durations, optional post-processing software (NovAtel's Inertial Explorer) can be used to compute forward and reverse solutions, thereby recovering an accurate and smooth trajectory.
