LiHawk is an aerial LiDAR surveying system designed for large area and long-range 3D data collection projects. The system is designed to be mounted to a fixed-wing airplane platform or multi-rotor UAV and features a Riegl VUX-1LR laser scanner coupled with a best-in class inertial measurement unit (IMU) for increased point cloud accuracy and precision. LiHawk is wellsuited for projects aiming to map terrain features beneath forest canopies and extract structural parameters from forest LiDAR data. The centimeter-level accuracy of this measurement device will meet the rigorous accuracy demands of civil engineering and critical infrastructure maintenance professionals. And the high-definition digital camera module can be used to generate photogrammetry products as well as true color 3D point clouds during each LiDAR survey.
The system can be mounted on different platforms (e.g.UAV LiAir series or fixed-wing airplane platform) for data collection.
ONE STOP SOLUTION PROVIDER
GVI supports self-developed software for data collection, data georeferencing, data post-processing and data analysis. GVI’s Software Suite provides you a one-stop solution without using any other third-party software.
LiHawk is a highly integrated LiDAR system, with only 5.3 kg weight without camera. The system supports an external solid-state drive to store the collected data, which eliminates the time to download data from the system and improves operational efficiency.
