CHC Navigation (CHCNAV) announced the release of the AlphaAir 1400 (AA1400) and AlphaAir 2400 (AA2400) LiDAR systems.

AA1400 and AA2400 are very lightweight and compact airborne laser scanners that are easily installed on various UAV platforms or small survey aircraft and helicopters. They are ideally adapted to high-density point corridor mapping applications, day or night, under leaf-on and leaf-off conditions or with dense vegetation to provide reliable results.

“Nowadays, it is critical to obtain the highest data quality for the majority of aerial survey projects. In addition to state-of-art GNSS and IMU sensors, the AA1400 and 2400 also integrate Riegl’s VUX LiDARs with their unique Waveform-LiDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage,” said Andrei Gorb, Product Manager of CHC Navigation’s Mapping and Geospatial Division. “The continuously rotating polygonal mirror wheel enables scanning speed of up to 400 lines per second, allowing for effective coverage of large areas when used from fast drones or aircraft.”
