Cover More Ground

Microdrones is pleased to announce a special presentation on the newest member of the GE industrial drone line, the mdLIDAR1000LR. This powerful drone LiDAR integrated system helps professionals collect data from a longer range, covering more area per flight, enabling users to create and maintain digital twins of their assets and project sites.

Join us for this informative webinar to learn how data produced by the new mdLiDAR1000LR can be captured from a greater distance to make quick work of large projects.

mdLiDAR1000LR means longer range. You’ll cover more ground from above. This translates to more efficiency than ever – the survey equipment, software, workflow, training and support that you need to be productive in the field – with convenient mdaaS plans.

The presentation will be conducted by Robert Chrismon, Microdrones Marketing Manager and voice of the customer. Robert is a Professional Land Surveyor who brings extensive field experience using drones for surveying work, having previously been a customer of Microdrones.

“With the release of the mdLiDAR1000HR earlier this year, the announcement of the GE industrial drone line and the mdLiDAR1000LR, it’s been an exciting 2021,” Chrismon said. “One of the things that really jumped out at me with the mdLiDAR1000LR, is the altitudes we are able to fly at and the coverage that we have with the field of view of 90 degrees for LIDAR collection, we’re going to be able to cover a lot of ground.”

Drone LiDAR is making a serious impact for specialists across many professions, both in terms of efficiency of data collection and generation of geospatial deliverables.

“The mdLiDAR1000LR increases the distance from which details can be captured,” explains Frank Darmayan, the Chief Operations Officer for Microdrones. “It can capture powerline details at 75m for distribution and 90m for transmission, effectively doubling the range of our mdLiDAR1000HR system. Flying at 70m from the powerlines, at 8m/s allows for efficient location of the powerlines with roughly 10 points per linear meter and capturing great detail of the towers.”

The presentation also explains new pricing options unveiled by Microdrones to provide even more flexibility for drone surveying customers to access the company’s mdInfinity software data processing modules.

Microdrones added the new offerings to its Microdrones as a Service (mdaaS) pricing menu in September, which gives professionals the ability to decide whether they want to rent or buy drone surveying equipment with convenient software packages and payment options to process data.

The pricing updates come on the software side, the first of which is the new choice to subscribe for data processing and analytics monthly through the “Explorer” package. Explorer joins the mdInfinity options to pay per project or to choose unlimited use.

The second update creates new basic and pro user levels for LiDAR data processing, adding another layer of flexibility. Photogrammetry users also benefit from an Explorer Basic Mapper plan to help manage their data processing needs.

“There’s something for everyone,” said Chuck Dorgan, US Director of Sales at Microdrones. “We’ve seen that progression with some customers that start out at pay-per-project and then switch over to unlimited,” Dorgan said.  “Our team can show you how to estimate jobs and you can get a feel for how many tokens it would take you to process some of your average work, and then get an idea of whether to pay per project or if you want to use a monthly plan. We provide as much as we can to help.”
