Innovative LiDAR Scanner

Exceptional Accuracy and Repeatability

The system boasts a measuring accuracy of 10mm and repeatability of 5mm, ensuring highly precise measurements and reliable data analysis. This remarkable consistency enhances data reliability and facilitates change detection analysis.

Nadir/Forward/Backward Scanning

The JoLiDAR-120 utilizes a sophisticated scan pattern alternating between strict nadir and ±10 degrees forward and backward scanning angles. This ensures comprehensive 3D data capture, accurately sampling vertical surfaces and enabling reliable data acquisition in narrow canyons.


Effective Measurement Rate Up to 1.8 Million pts/s

JoLiDAR-120's capacity to generate 1.8 million points per second surpasses traditional LiDAR systems, enabling it to capture richer, more detailed point clouds in less time. This high-resolution data is ideal for applications such as 3D mapping, object detection, and terrain analysis.

Scan Speed Up to 400 Lines/Sec

The JoLiDAR-120 offers rapid scanning speed, allowing for the quick coverage of large areas while maintaining high data density. This increases efficiency and productivity, particularly beneficial for applications requiring extensive data collection such as topographic mapping and corridor inspection.

1,430m Scanning Range

The JoLiDAR-120 boasts a maximum scanning range of 1,430 meters, allowing it to effectively operate at an operational range of up to 720 meters (2,350 feet). This extended range makes it particularly suitable for fixed-wing UAVs, enabling efficient surveying of vast areas from greater distances.

100° Field of View (FOV)

Featuring a field of view of up to 100°, the JoLiDAR-120 captures a broad swath of data in a single scan, minimizing the need for overlapping scans and maximizing efficiency. This expansive coverage is particularly beneficial for applications requiring rapid and comprehensive data collection.

High-Precision Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

Equipped with a high-precision inertial measurement unit (IMU), the JoLiDAR-120 ensures accurate orientation and positioning data. This enhances the quality of LiDAR point clouds and enables reliable geospatial analysis, even in dynamic environments. 

  • Roll, Pitch: 0.005°
  • Heading: 0.010°
  • Maximum Data Update Rate: 600Hz
High-Resolution RGB Camera
