Multi-pulse LiDARs Changing the Business Model

Wires1-300x166As they explain in this blog from Ayres Associates much of the 100kV+ power transmission lines have been surveyed so the focus is now shifting towards collecting and analyzing information about lower voltage transmission and distribution lines. This information is being used for a variety of applications, including asset inventories, assessing encroachment, and wildfire mitigation.

Until relatively recently, there were few fixed-wing aerial Lidar systems capable of supporting the necessary point density – with any sort of efficiency.  However, there are several new multi-pulse systems manufactured today that capable of collecting sufficient density over wide areas.
