YellowScan LiveStation

Don’t miss anything before going back to the office with Live Data transmission.

In-flight LiDAR Data transmission is enabled by a dedicated port. The YellowScan Mapper is compatible with the LiveStation, allowing live visualization of LiDAR data collection. Your mission can only be a success.

Versatile LiDAR

The new YellowScan Explorer can be mounted on a light manned aircraft or switched to different types of UAV platforms.

The YellowScan Explorer is the first LiDAR that can be mounted on a light manned aircraft or helicopter and be switched to a UAV platform like the Martlet MI-3. This versatility allows the end-user to tackle a wide range of projects with the proven ease of use of YellowScan’s UAV LiDAR solutions.

Compatible with

Simple and Efficient

Survey productivity matters.

No need to connect a computer to the LiDAR system to gather data. Just remove the USB stick from the system and go to your computer. As you receive two USBs, this helps you land and take-off again straight away thanks to the second USB stick. One USB stick can store LiDAR data from a 6 hour-survey.

No overheating LiDAR system

YellowScan optimized the temperature management with a double suction grid (airflow management) for better aeration of the system. You can operate the Mapper between -20°C/-4°F and +40°C/140°F.

Human-Machine Interface

The Human-Machine Interface features LEDs that indicate the LiDAR system’s status and a simple but effective single button operation.
