Kissimmee, FL November 11, 2015 -- Lead Air, Inc., the manufacturer of Track’Air aerial survey products, is pleased to announce the availability of one of our newest products, the MIDAR-H. The MIDAR-H is a newly designed aerial platform for concurrent capture of LiDAR point cloud data and tri-view imagery for corridor and powerline mapping applications. Particularly adapted to low level flight, the system is capable of delivering as much as 300 megapixels per second of 0.25 inch (0.6cm) GSD color imagery. Coupled with the RIEGL VUX-1LR capturing an effective measurement rate up to 750,000 measurements per second, the MIDAR-H efficiently captures a complete view of the corridor from both forward and back views in a single pass.
“We are thrilled with the development of this system. The companies that are already using it are excited about the increase in their productivity and the quality of the products” said Lead’Air CEO JP Barriere.
The MIDAR-H has its own automated flight planning process created expressly for taking advantage of the fully compensated mount. Provide centerline data of the corridor segments you are acquiring and with some basic information, the software will do the rest.
Because helicopters can fly slower and turn much tighter than fixed wing aircraft the newly designed, fully compensating (+/- 40° roll, +/- 10° pitch and +/-30° yaw) helicopter nose mount enables users to fly winding corridors without dividing the flight into time consuming multiple straight segments.
Although the systems are designed around a particular type of equipment Lead’Air has the manufacturing ability to reconfigure the equipment to work with other LiDAR or Camera systems. Additional information is available at: http://trackair.com/index.php/midarh/
