DRONE TECHNOLOGY CASE STUDIES
TRANSMISSION LINE LIDAR
On this particular project, Flight Evolved partnered with the Kootenai Electric Company and HDR Inc. to gather data of a transmission corridor in the Pacific Northwest. The data was to be used to determine the feasibility of running another line along the corridor. Our data was fully classified and HDR Inc. was able to import it directly into PLS-CADD for interpretation and analysis.
Wide Area LiDAR Acquisition
Flight Evolved was tasked with a unique project to provide LiDAR and ortho imagery of a series of ski resorts outside Lake Tahoe, California. This particular project was unique because of it’s high accuracy and coverage requirements. To accomplish this, traditional fixed-wing acquisition was not an option for gathering LiDAR to the high density and accuracy requirements. However, using a Bell 206 helicopter and our custom lightweight LiDAR/optical camera integration, we were able to gather extremely dense and accurate data of the mountain for use with ski grooming equipment.
