Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, now has a permanent home in South Africa. Leica Geosystems SA will incorporate its existing local distribution partner, Aciel Geomatics and will continue to provide a range of geospacial solutions, whilst ensuring customers receive only the highest level of service and support.

The YellowScan Surveyor ultra-light stand-alone LiDAR system is embedded on the OnyxStar® XENA multirotor UAV, which is the last generation professional drone designed by Altigator.

Compact, light, powerful and foldable, Xena is the result of the analysis of users’ operational needs and months of Research & Development in order to release this versatile “off-roader” type of drone.

Dust proof, it can be transported either in a small-size case, or even as a backpack, which makes it the ideal solution to perform survey, mapping, environmental and mining monitoring of areas up to 100 ha on any type of field.

With a total take-off weight of 5.6kg including the YellowScan Surveyor system, the aircraft can navigate autonomously up to 25 minutes with 1 single battery, and can also lift a combined camera to mix Lidar scanning and photogrammetry.

Years of partnership between YellowScan and Altigator and renowned references worldwide demonstrate the effectiveness of their systems.

The YellowScan Surveyor includes:

  • - High-end Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) allowing precision measurement of the attitude.
  • - Dual-frequency GNSS receiver, capable of operating in RTK or PPK positioning mode
  • - Multi-echo laser scanner
