ApusDuo solar aircraft successful maiden flight

UAVOS Inc. has successfully completed the first stage of the flight tests of the 10-meter prototype of the High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS) ApusDuo, which was manufactured as part of the development program of ApusDuo solar aircraft with a wing span of 28m. That prototype was made for testing control algorithms, including take-off and landing, full-scale verification of HAPS aerodynamics. Test flights fully confirmed the flight characteristics of the UAV.

UAVOS Inc., headquartered in Mountain View, CA, has recently raised a round of financing from a group of private investors, in order to further enhance its R&D efforts, reduce the go-to-market time for new solutions and also focus on promotion and commercialization.

UAVOS works directly with a number of large customers in different segments. Among UAVOS advanced ready-for-commercialization technologies is unique Apus High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite control system for high-altitude unmanned solar-powered aerial vehicles, multiplatform autopilot solution for converting manned vehicles of all types into unmanned, and unmanned aerial vehicles aimed to counteract systems of electronic warfare.

{articles|100|campaign}Phoenix LiDAR Systems Disrupts the LiDAR Landscape Again

The commercial UAV LiDAR pioneer pushes industry boundaries with three new product announcements at INTERGEO 2018

Los Angeles, CA — October 12, 2018 — Phoenix LiDAR Systems, LLC., the industry leader in commercial UAV LiDAR systems, is proud to announce its three newest LiDAR solutions that will challenge LiDAR conventions once again at INTERGEO 2018, the world’s largest trade fair in the field of geodesy, spatial data and land management.
The Pioneer P10, Phoenix SLAM and AIR NavBox are all designed to increase flexibility, range and efficiency in customers’ LiDAR acquisition workflow more than ever..

“We take great pride in pushing the boundaries of what technology allows us to do, and our newest products provide an unprecedented range of power, density and flexibility,” says CEO Grayson Omans. “We’re always looking for ways to impact the important work our clients are doing for the better.”

The three newest additions to the Phoenix LiDAR family of products are headlined by the Pioneer P10. Scheduled for a US-release in late 2018, the long-range laser sensor weighs only 3.8kg and is a purpose-built, UAV LiDAR mapping system with a high-power 1550nm laser. Most impressively, the Pioneer P10 allows users to finally fly at the maximum regulation AGL of 120m (400ft) and scan more area per flight due to its unique ability to focus all 640k points over a downward looking 110-degree field of view.

Surveyors and LiDAR professionals can expect an increase of 300% in ground point density as compared to most other models at a comparable price point that spin the laser 360 degrees, resulting in wasted data. Its 300m laser range also makes the Pioneer P10 ideal for achieving the best range and power for challenging scans such as high vegetation penetration above 100m with up to three returns.

Late 2018 will also see the launch of Phoenix LiDAR’s new AIR NavBox. The newest generation, ultra-lightweight (450g) rover will help meet the rigorous demands of various industries and applications by greatly increasing flexibility in two key areas:

configuration of heavier payloads for the DJI M600 series, such as Phoenix LiDAR’s 5kg, RANGER LR-LITE paired with the Phase One iXM; and higher range with the highest resolution cameras on the market. The new Phoenix LiDAR AIR NavBox offers the most industry-altering capabilities in a tiny box not much bigger than a standard-size computer mouse.

The new Phoenix SLAM, slated for an early-2019 release, makes Phoenix LiDAR products more versatile by offering a dependable tool for mapping GPS-denied environments, such as underground mines and indoors. With the addition of augmented reality glasses, any Phoenix LiDAR SCOUT series model can be converted into a SLAM-compatible solution using the onboard software, navigation system and sensor for SLAM. Additionally, the Phoenix SLAM extends previous mapping solutions by supporting hybrid mapping modes: sparse GNSS fixes before, during and after SLAM
acquisition can be used to eliminate drift and properly reference data in space and time. Existing ground control points can also be tied into the solution to ensure that deliverables align with ground truth.

The announcement of the Pioneer P10, Phoenix SLAM, and AIR NavBox comes on the heels of Phoenix LiDAR’s LiDARMill launch, the first cloud-based, fully-automated LiDAR post-processing tool which helps reduce costs by leveraging cloud computing to automate post-processing. Phoenix LiDAR’s new platform enables even more companies to take advantage of the detailed 3D data which LiDAR offers.

For more information, please visit the Phoenix LiDAR booth (#12.0A.101) at INTERGEO
2018 from October 16-18, 2018 or PhoenixLiDAR.com.
