Aeroscout unveils UAV helicopter for LiDAR surveys

Swiss UAV innovator, Aeroscout, has unveiled the Scout B-330 UAV helicopter, with a high payload capacity designed for LiDAR mapping and surveying.

The Scout B-330 is built with a 50kg payload capacity, a long flight endurance of up to three hours and the capability of flying at altitudes up to 3,000m above sea level.

It is also supported by a range of navigational sensors that enable a fully autonomous take-off sequence, mission flight operation at variable speed, and a landing sequence.

The Scout B-330 is specifically designed for LiDAR-based powerline mapping missions. It sets a new benchmark in the long endurance UAV class with its combination of flexibility, world-renowned Swiss quality,

“After one year of intense development, we are very excited to introduce our new Scout UAV system to the public,” said Dr. Christoph Eck, Aeroscout founder and CEO.

“The reactions [to the new product] are extremely positive and encouraging, we are very motivated for the serial production out of the system”

The Scout B-330 has been designed to pair perfectly with RIEGL airborne and unmanned LiDAR sensors, including the RIEGL VP-1 Helicopter Pod, the RIEGL VUX-1UAV lightweight UAV laser scanner, or the RIEGL VUX-1LR lightweight, long range airborne laser scanner.
