AltiGator and YellowScan unveil a 5.6kg survey-grade LiDAR UAV all integrated system, ideal for centimetric urban surveys

UAV Lidar surveying with OnyxStar drone - Yellowscan surveyor on XENA UAV


Lidar laser scanning from UAV: 3D Lidar surveying with OnyxStar drone - Yellowscan surveyor on XENA UAVAltiGator and YellowScan are pleased to announce an ultra-light weight LiDAR UAV combo allowing for the first time centimetric UAV surveys in urban situations, in accordance with most regulations.

The YellowScan Surveyor ultra-light stand-alone LiDAR system is embedded on the OnyxStar® XENA multirotor UAV, which is the last generation professional drone designed by AltiGator.

Light, powerful and foldable, XENA is the result of the analysis of users’ operational needs and months of Research & Development in order to release this versatile “off-roader” type of drone.

Compact, it can be transported either in a small-size case, or even as a backpack, which makes it the ideal solution to perform survey, mapping, environmental and mining monitoring of areas up to 100 ha on any field.

With a total take-off weight of 5.6 kg including the YellowScan Surveyor system, the aircraft can navigate autonomously up to 24 minutes with one single battery.
