Introducing the fully integrated YellowScan Surveyor with Applanix APX-15 UAV
The world’s lightest and most accurate LiDAR Direct Georeferencing solution for UAVs...

Designed by surveyors for surveyors, the YellowScan Surveyor is a LiDAR solution for UAV’s ideally suited for precise topography mapping tasks. Quick and easy to operate, it answers the demanding requirements of civil engineering and mining applications.

A robust and fully integrated system capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding survey professionals and terrain, the YellowScan Surveyor is quickly and easily adapted to virtually any UAV, generating data when and where you need it.

The YellowScan team carefully selected and deployed the best high-end components for unparalleled performance and for achieving highly accurate position and orientation Direct Georeferencing; this meant the Applanix APX-15 UAV single board GNSS-Inertial OEM solution for Direct Georeferencing and POSPac UAV post processing software.

APX-15 UAV is designed to enable small UAVs to produce highly accurate, directly georeferenced aerial images for any imaging payload (visual, LiDAR, infra-red, multispectral imaging, even video). Measuring just 6 cm x 6.7 cm and weighing only 60 grams, the Applanix APX-15 UAV provides unparalleled performance in an extremely small package. The included POSPac UAV post-mission software produces an even higher accuracy position and orientation solution for direct georeferencing.
