Troops using this technology have the most accurate high-resolution elevation data offered from airborne military observation tools. They can see unmatched detail beneath tree canopies, structures in heavily populated cities, rugged mountain terrain and more.

Warfighters can reduce weaknesses in:

Mission Planning

Pilots need to find safe landing zones on land and at sea. Clear images help determine the safest locations to land and avoid obstructions like powerlines.

LiDAR high-resolution (30 points per square meter, 18 centimeters ground sampling distance)

Geiger-mode LiDAR Solutions - Mission Planning Low Resolution
LiDAR low-resolution (8 points per square meter, 35 centimeters ground sampling distance)


Locating and tracking enemy movement is crucial to mission success. Warfighters can even gain valuable insight on volumes of weapon stocks and manufacturing abilities.
