Aeroscout Introduces New Lidar UAV Helicopter - 30/05/2017


Aeroscout, a long-term partner of Lidar manufacturer RIEGL, has launched the Scout B-330 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) helicopter. It is built with a high payload capacity of up to 50kg, a long flight endurance of at least three hours and the capability of flying at altitudes up to 3,000m above sea level in a typical mission scenario. This includes a fully autonomous take-off sequence, a mission flight at variable speed and a landing sequence. The Scout B-330 is specifically designed for Lidar-based powerline mapping missions.

After one year of intense development, the Swiss-based company introduces the new Scout UAV system to the public. The reactions at AUVSI Xponential were extremely positive and encouraging, said Christoph Eck, Aeroscout founder and CEO.

Aeroscout's new UAV is designed to pair perfectly with RIEGL airborne and unmanned Lidar sensors, such as the RIEGL VP-1 Helicopter Pod, the RIEGL VUX-1UAV lightweight UAV laser scanner, or the RIEGL VUX-1LR lightweight, long range airborne laser scanner.

Aeroscout will be displaying this high performance UAV at the Commercial UAV Show in Las Vegas, this October.
