Dowe Gallagher Airborne Data Group (DGADG) recently added a new Textron Cessna Caravan EX to its expanding LiDAR (Topographic and Bathymetric) aerial survey offerings.

The Caravan EX platform, equipped with the G1000 avionics package, brings added safety, dispatch reliability and fuel efficiency and is powered by the newest generation Pratt & Whitney PT-6A-140 867HP turboprop engine.

“The dual port, multi sensor configuration of this new aircraft allows DGADG to acquire multiple data sets (e.g. Lidar point cloud and RGBN multispectral data) during a single collection mission. The FAA approved electrical system and camera port modifications enables operation with a Normal Category Airworthiness certification, allowing seamless approvals for a multitude of sensor configurations” says CEO Dwain Gadway.

DGADG recently added a new RIEGL VQ-1560i linear LiDAR sensor integrated with a Phase 1 iXU 1000, 50mm RGB camera. The combination of the Caravan EX workhorse and the industry leading RIEGL VQ-1560i sensor provides our customers with a wide range of standard setting point cloud resolutions. As part of its growth strategy, DGADG will continue to add additional aircraft and sensors to our airborne capabilities portfolio.
