Michael Baker acquires Altavian Nova UAS
The new UAS provides a new tool for Michael Baker pilots to use when conducting aerial mapping and inspections of large sites or during inclement weather conditions.
The Altavian Nova UAS can fly for 45-90 minutes and cover 600-800 acres in a single flight. It will expand Michael Baker’s mapping operations when combined with the company’s existing fleet of vertical takeoff and landing UAS, and mobile and static light detection and ranging systems for data collection.
The UAS can carry advanced DSLR-based photogrammetric mapping payloads, with multispectral capabilities, GPS and IS technologies to transmit data without line of sight; along with remote sensing capabilities and colour infrared technology to identify vegetation and natural resources.
