Chengdu, China - July 8, 2024 - JOUAV today announced the launch of the JoLiDAR-120G, a high-end, long-range LiDAR system designed for maximum efficiency and adaptability across various surveying and mapping applications.

Lightweight Design, Enhanced Compatibility

Weighing only 2.5kg (including the camera), the JoLiDAR-120G is a remarkably lightweight LiDAR system. This facilitates compatibility with popular JOUAV drone platforms, including the JOUAV CW-15 VTOL drone and the PH-20 multirotor drone. This versatility empowers users to choose the most suitable drone for their specific mission requirements.



1800m Range Efficiency for High-Difference Terrains

The JoLiDAR-120G boasts a maximum range of 1800 meters, making it perfect for surveying high-difference terrains such as mountainous areas. It effectively detects valley features, reducing the need for additional flights and significantly improving field operation efficiency.

In rigorous tests, the CW-15 equipped with the JoLiDAR-120G achieved a maximum point cloud height difference of 1314.517 meters at a relative flight altitude of 260 meters, with measured distances exceeding 1500 meters.

2000kHz Frequency for Exceptional Detail Capture

With a maximum pulse emission frequency of 2000kHz, translating to a maximum scanning frequency of 900 lines per second, the JoLiDAR-120G delivers exceptional feature resolution.

This enables the capture of intricate shapes and textures of surface features in minute detail, ensuring the creation of highly accurate and informative 3D models.

True Color Point Cloud Real-Time Modeling

The JoLiDAR-120G supports real-time modeling and point cloud classification, producing fast, low-latency, and high-precision data on the fly. It can generate industry-specific reports, such as real-time obstacle reports, ensuring timely and accurate insights.

Customizable Imaging System

The JoLiDAR-120G offers customizable imaging options, with half-frame and full-frame cameras to suit various focal lengths and resolutions:

  • 26 MP: 16mm/25mm/30mm/35mm
  • 45 MP: 18mm/40mm
  • 61 MP: 18mm/40mm

"The JoLiDAR-120G’s exceptional range and multi-return capability make it a game-changer for high-difference terrains," said Li Linfeng, Product Manager at JOUAV. "We are excited to see how our customers will leverage its capabilities to enhance their operations."

Upgraded JoLiDAR Point Cloud Processing Software

JOUAV has significantly upgraded its JoLiDAR point cloud processing software, introducing new features tailored for the surveying, mining, and electrical power industries:

Base-Station-Free Service

The upgraded service includes the N-Base cloud station and high-precision POS cloud solution. The N-Base cloud station allows users to set up virtual stations and control data collection via a mobile app, which is beneficial for large survey areas and long baseline strip operations. This ensures differential precision without the need for traditional base stations.
