CompassDrone, Newest Division Of CompassData, Integrates UAV LiDAR Solutions

Centennial, CO – CompassDrone announced they have acquired the Riegl MiniVux as the best hardware system to provide reliable, consistent data for our customers solutions. CompassDrone will be celebrating with CompassData, Inc. on their 25th anniversary at the Geo Week in Denver, Colorado.

CompassData, a leading provider of accurate geospatial data, has expanded survey capabilities with the addition of the Riegl MiniVUX-1UAV mounted on a DJI M600 Pro Platform.

RIEGL MiniVUX: 1UAV
The RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV makes use of RIEGL’s unique Waveform-LiDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage.

DJI M600 Pro
The DJI M600 Pro with A3 Flight Controller has triple modular redundancy and diagnostic algorithms that compare sensor data from three GNSS antennas. Compatibility with D-RTK GNSS prevents magnetic interference while providing centimeter-level accuracy.

“After thorough investigation of the UAV – LiDAR market CompassData has established the Riegl MiniVux as the best hardware system to provide reliable, consistent data for our customers,” said Hayden Howard, Vice President CompassData/CompassDrone.

CompassDrone is a one-stop-shop, providing air frames, sensors, software, support, training, and Part 107 classes. It also provides services, including post-processing and flight services. As the 1st geospatial dealer for DJI, CompassDrone sells, rents and supports DJI drone airframes and software to empower mapping professionals to deliver drone-based solutions.

CompassDrone’s CIRRUAS App for flight planning and video collection supports export of DJI FMV to ESRI ArcGIS for enhanced analytics.
