UAV Lidar

At the core of the Phoenix AL-2 is the Velodyne HDL-32E sensor, which features up to 32 lasers aligned over a 40º Vertical Field of View, and generates 700,000 distance points per second. The HDL-32E rotates 360º up to 20 times per second and provides measurement and intensity information over a range of 1meter to 100 meters, with a typical accuracy of better than +/- 2 cm. The Phoenix AL-2 delivers a real-time, high definition 3D point cloud for speedy mapping of difficult to reach areas without the expense of hiring a commercial plane.

The Phoenix AL-2 will be on display at the Velodyne booth #3326 at the AUVSI show, held August 12 – 15 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington DC.

The Phoenix AL-2 is expected to be commercially available by Q4 2013. For more information about Phoenix Aerial LiDAR, please visit  http://www.Phoenix-Aerial.com. Click HERE for a direct link to the Proof of Concept video.
