RTL-450 - A turn-key UAV LiDAR solution
RedTail’s integration process provides world-class turn-key solutions. The RTL-450 is system agnostic, allowing the customer to select their UAV of choice. The RedTail team provides all mounting, calibration, testing, and hands-on training to ensure the customer’s UAV LiDAR system is ready to go from day one.
RedTail provides a lifetime license for our processing software. Our software, the RedTail Point Cloud generator (RTL-PCG), outputs a geo-referenced .las file.
RedTail provides mounting, calibration, and boresighting to ensure the RTL-450 works perfectly right out of the box.
LiDAR Sensor & GNSS/IMU
RedTail’s patented LiDAR sensor was designed and optimized for use on UAVs. The integrated APX-18 GNSS/IMU makes the RTL-450 the ultimate drone LiDAR package.
Unprecedented Data Density
The RTL-450 evenly distributes all data points on the ground, resulting in unprecedented data densities and point cloud resolution.
Extremely Light Weight
The RTL-450 unit weighs only 4.2 lbs. allowing for integration on a large variety of UAV platforms.
The dual antennas come standard on the APX-18 increasing GPS accuracy, even when hovering.
RedTail’s Workflow Process
A key objective during the design and development of the RedTail LiDAR system was to simplify the data collection and processing workflow. The UAV LiDAR sensor and ground control station work seamlessly together to create the ultimate user experience for 3D mapping.
