Battle Damage Assessment

Rapid Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) is a critical function that provides Operational Commanders the ability to quickly identify and restore damaged essential facilities and infrastructure to a combat ready status. LiDAR provides an excellent means of rapidly characterizing the nature and extent of damage to provide planners key data to regain an effective operational posture. LiDAR allows remote assessment without putting personnel in harm's way and allows efficient collection of data on large areas.

Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System combines the agility and operability of a UAV with a superior point cloud generation tool. Together, they create high resolution, highly accurate, 3D maps of areas of interest quickly and without endangering personnel.

The RedTail LiDAR system is ideally suited for assessing damaged runways to include computing volumetric for compromised surfaces to support determination of fill requirements, establishing the location of unexploded ordnance and characterizing objects of interest on the ground.The system can also be used to baseline large scale infrastructure pre event to allow post event comparisons to determine changes in structural integrity.

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal tool to quickly and effectively complete large scale data collects to perform Battle Damage Assessment. With a pulse repetition rate of up to 400,000 pulses per second, even-ground distribution, superior ranging capability, and optimized scan angles, the RedTail LiDAR System will provide precise, actionable data.
