Montpellier, 5 February 2018 - The Surveyor Ultra is the new system from YellowScan, integrating the Velodyne VLP-32C scanner & the Applanix APX-15 IMU. Thanks to its high-density (600 000 shots per second), the system is ideally suited for high speed UAVs & long-range needs (maximum range:100 m). Its light weight (1,7 kg) makes it also easy to mount on any drone, including VTOLs. As all YellowScan Lidar Systems, the Surveyor Ultra is a turn-key system fitted for under vegetation 3D modeling, and fast data processing.

Tristan Allouis, PhD & YellowScan CTO : "The Surveyor Ultra shows great potential to safely and efficiently operate lidar on lightweight fixed wing uavs."

Pierre d’Hauteville, YellowScan Head of Sales & Marketing : " The Surveyor Ultra completes our product line including the successfull Surveyor Lidar System (integration of the VLP-16 scanner from Velodyne)."
