The mdLiDAR3000 uses the lifting power, resilience and efficiency of the Microdrones aircraft platform to carry a perfectly integrated Riegl miniVUX-1UAV (or an optional miniVUX-1DL) and a Sony RX1R II camera. The result? You can quickly acquire high density and accurate LiDAR data in the field and efficiently turn it into a 3D colourised pointcloud back at the office or on your laptop.



mdLiDAR3000 is an end-to-end LiDAR solution combining a drone, a LiDAR payload, a fully integrated software workflow, and world class support to consistently provide quality deliverables.
