Scout Lidar Series

9 1

Multi-platform high definition LiDAR mapping system.



  • Phoenix Aerial Systems introduces the Scout - a small yet powerful RTK UAV LiDAR system that redefines the power of LiDAR mapping.  The new Phoenix Aerial Scout is an ideal solution for both new entrants and experienced firms looking to offer an aerial LiDAR solution for jobs considered too small for conventional LiDAR systems.  


    The Scout weighs just 1.82kg (4 lbs), minimizing UAV power usage and maximizing flight time.  At the core of the Scout is the Velodyne VLP-16 Puck Lite, which features 16 lasers spread out over a 30º vertical field of view, 120 meter range and captures up to 300,000 measurements per second and up to 600,000 per second in dual return mode.
