Swiss UAV company Flyability recently announced its new Surveying Payload, released in partnership with FARO Technologies, for its Elios 3 Drone at the Intergeo show in Berlin last week. Called the Ouster OS0-128 Rev 7, the new system will enable safe, centimeter-accurate scans of hard-to-reach areas and will be bundled with training, reflective targets, and specialized processing software FARO Connect. The new system is more precise than its predecessor, with a wider range, higher point density, and improved photon sensitivity. The new LiDAR payload for the Elios 3 is an alternative to the existing Ouster OS0-32 Rev 6.2, and targets professionals seeking “survey-grade results” in difficult environments.
The enhanced features include improved volumetric scanning accurate to within 1% of terrestrial laser technologies, distance measurements with centimeter accuracy, and…
