UAVOS has developed a new VTOL UAS, the UVH-25EL, designed for data capturing applications using Light Distance and Ranging (LiDAR).

The fully automatic, compact and lightweight UVH -25EL is equipped with an electric engine unit and has a flight endurance of up to 1.5hrs when carrying a payload of up to 5kg.

The company plans to partner with leading LiDAR manufacturers to provide the users with an all-in-one 3D mapping solution. The system can integrate high resolution cameras for precise, efficient and cost-effective surveying and 3D mapping.

The UVH-25EL has a maximum take-off weight of 25kg, with a chassis designed to fit the LiDAR installation. The aircraft’s rechargeable battery module is located inside the helicopter’s bearing frame, which protects it from damage. The UAS is also equipped with a radio altimeter.

Aliaksei Stratsilatau, CEO, UAVOS, said: ‘The UVH-25EL is truly an advanced UAV for serious geomatics professionals in the construction, land development, engineering and geomatics trades.

‘The partnerships with developers of LiDAR systems will allow us to complement our UVH-25EL unmanned helicopter offer with a coverage of aerial photography and 3D elevation data, as well as more specialist capture including thermal surveys, LiDAR.’
