Go extreme with the most powerful laser scanner… extend your data collection reach from high above or collect extreme point density when flying closer to the ground.
mdLiDAR3000LR aaS uses the lifting power, resilience and efficiency of the Microdrones aircraft platform to carry a perfectly integrated Riegl VUX-1UAV.
The result? You can quickly acquire high density and accurate LiDAR data from high above your subject in the field and efficiently turn it into a 3D pointcloud back at the office or on your laptop.
Who Should Consider This System: As you’ve come to expect, Microdrones provides you with the full solution: Plan, Fly, Process, Visualize. Only Bigger.
This is a serious machine for serious geomatics professionals in the construction, land development, engineering, surveying and research trades. It’s field tough and ready to work with you on the following tasks:
Mining (volume calculation)
Construction site monitoring
Environmental changes (time series)
Archaeology and cultural heritage
Power Line Inspection
SURVEY GRADE DRONE LASER SCANNING
By combining our robust and field proven md4-3000 airframe, with a highly precise and accurate Riegl VUX-1UAV payload, you can capture ultra dense LiDAR data quickly and safely in the field, and then turn it into a 3D point cloud back at the office or on your laptop.
Why Should You Invest in Drone Based LiDAR?

5 Reasons Why Professionals are Making the mdLiDAR3000DL LR aaS part of their geomatics workflow:
Drones can Lead to Better Worker Safety
Easily tackle projects in areas that are difficult, dirty or dangerous to access – such as challenging terrain, crumbling structures, high elevations, and areas impacted by natural disasters.
Save Time, Money and Hassle by Deploying a Drone
Collecting data previously required extensive groundwork or very expensive manned aircraft. Using a drone allows quick and affordable data collection; that’s one of the most important benefits for geospatial professionals.
Integrated Drones = Interruption-Free Data Collection
Survey live construction or mining sites without interrupting people, plans or machinery. You’ll no longer have to stop work and equipment to collect the data you need, making you more valuable to your customers.
Technology Thought Leadership and Practical Field Leadership
Customers are curious about UAV surveying technology – so providing it demonstrates that a business is an industry leader at the helm. Faster, more efficient data collection differentiates you from competitors and positions you as a subject matter expert in an emerging technology.
Microdrones Offers Unmatched Training, Education and Support
Our professional UAV pilots offer complete onsite Microdrones UAV training to both dealers and end-user customers to ensure they are fully capable of deploying their drone packages in the field, ready to achieve immediate results.
