Ease of Use: The RedTail LiDAR RTL-450 workflow was developed specifically for Department of Defense and government customers. Guidance from military end-users was captured for the development of RTL-450’s easy-to-use and simple to understand interface. Operators are able to begin collecting high-quality 3D data with only a few hours of training.
High-Resolution Point Clouds: The RedTail LiDAR System was developed by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to create high-resolution point clouds for military and government customers. The superior resolution of the point clouds generated by the RedTail LiDAR System allows customers to perform enhanced data analytics, including the incorporation of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) algorithms for detection and classification.
FLIR SkyRaider and Blue UAS 2.0 Integration: The RTL-450 LiDAR system is a fully integrated payload on the Teledyne FLIR R80D SkyRaider – a DoD Program of Record sUAS – and both the FreeFly Alta X and the Inspired Flight IF1200 which are both certified as DoD Blue UAS 2.0 sUAS. As other sUAS are approved by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), RedTail LiDAR will provide a fully integrated LiDAR payload on those platforms.
DoD and Government Use: The RTL-450 is the system of choice for military and government customers. The underlying microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) mirror technology used in the RTL-450 was designed and developed by the Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, MD. Systems have been operationally deployed within DoD as a 3D tactical imaging system
Key Specifications: The RTL-450 LiDAR sensor by RedTail LiDAR Systems provides superior performance for sUAS applications, including:
RedTail LiDAR technology licensed from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory; U.S. Patent Number 10,444,330 B2. Scanning - the way it was meant to be is a trademarked slogan of RedTail LiDAR Systems. Specifications are subject to change.
