Solution presentation

YellowScan Surveyor Ultra is a Velodyne VLP-32-based UAV LiDAR system.

YellowScan Surveyor Ultra LiDAR system is suited for high speed UAV (VTOL fixed-wing or helicopter) and long-range needs due to its high-density specifications.

With the 360° Field of View of the Velodyne VLP-32 laser scanner, YellowScan Surveyor Ultra is matching vertical mapping and mobile mapping needs when combined with Fly&Drive.

Its light weight makes it easy to mount on any UAV, including VTOL or Helicopters. As with all YellowScan’s LiDAR systems, the Surveyor Ultra is designed for 3D modeling under vegetation, and fast data processing.

Key differentiators

  • Helicopter UAV

Easily integrate the Surveyor Ultra into UAV platforms

YellowScan Surveyor Ultra is a versatile LiDAR solution. It can be seamlessly used on multirotors UAV, fixed-wing VTOL UAV and Helicopter UAV. This great flexibility is an asset if you have a great diversity of missions: sizes and reliefs. Fixed-wing VTOL for big area to survey, multirotor for small areas or vertical sections.

If you already have a M300 or M600, we have the dedicated mounting to attach the Surveyor Ultra to your UAV.

2-in-1 solution: UAV & MOBILE Mapping

Surveyor Ultra is suitable for mobile mapping with YellowScan Fly&Drive. This mobile mapping kit includes:

  • A 4-kg car pod for mobile mapping with 3 built-in suction cups and a wire rope vibration isolator system, a GNSS antenna and a roof bar
  • A wheel-mounted odometer, measuring the distance driven to improve final trajectory data
  • Specific dual use dynamic model for mobile / UAV mapping
  • External power supply, with a cable directly connected to the cigarette lighter socket of the car
  • LiveStation software for live visualization. Start LiDAR acquisition directly from the LiveStation (no need to get out of the vehicle…. to start acquisition)

360° Field of View!

You have the ability to scan at 360° with YellowScan Surveyor Ultra. This means you can collect LiDAR data not only from the ground but for verticals as well.

Surveyor Ultra is the best if you plan to use your LiDAR system for applications such as vertical inspections (buildings, bridges, coastal erosion, cliffs, mountains). And you benefit from a high point density obtained from the Velodyne VLP-32 laser scanner.

drone battery autonomy

Because productivity in the field matters.

No worries for autonomy! YellowScan Surveyor Ultra comes with 2 sets of battery, having 1h30 of autonomy each.
data storage

Data in your pocket, not in the cloud!

We provide you with 2 x 128GB USB key for LiDAR data storage. This represents approximately 25 hours of data collection.

Travel easily with your LiDAR equipment.

With the YellowScan Surveyor Ultra, you get a complete Pelicase protecting all the accessories needed for your LiDAR surveys.

Take care!

Laser scanner glass can be scratched if you don’t handle it with care. At YellowScan, we know this can happen! Thus we provide you with a dedicated protection cover, so your LiDAR laser head is protected over time from any scratches.

Long-lasting LiDAR system: if you want your LiDAR system to last, internal temperature management is key!

We designed an aluminium cooling plate and air flow management system with internal fan. This system increase longevity and reliability of the components integrated into the LiDAR system.
