Remote Aerial Surveys is the first UAV operator in the UK to offer a UAV mounted LiDAR survey service. The UAV mounted LiDAR combines the latest UAV technology with a state of the art LiDAR pod to capture survey grade positional accuracy together with a very high point cloud density. Operations Manager Tom Gravett said: âCombining LiDAR with UAV technology will revolutionise the surveying industry with the improvements it will bring in data quality where accurate mapping is essential but has previously been difficult to achieve.â The Company uses a Routescene LidarPod, which has been specifically developed for use on UAVs, being the most compact and lightest offering currently on the market. Mounting the Pod on a UAV is an invaluable and safe way to survey awkward, dangerous and hostile environments such as landslips or disaster zones, where access is difficult.
