New Generation LiDAR Scanner

Unmatched Precision

With its impressive 5mm measurement accuracy, the JoLiDAR-1500 ensures detailed capture of even the finest features. Additionally, its 1.5cm relative accuracy ensures consistent and reliable point cloud generation, ideal for creating highly accurate 3D models.

1500m Scanning Range

The JoLiDAR-1500 boasts an impressive 1500m scanning range, enabling efficient data acquisition over large areas. Under specific conditions, with a drone like the CW-25E, it's estimated to cover up to 53km² in a single flight (assuming 50% overlap and 500m relative height).

High-Speed Scanning Capabilities

The JoLiDAR-1500 boasts a 2000kHz pulse frequency and 300 lines/sec scanning speed, allowing for fast and efficient data capture. This rapid performance minimizes flight time and optimizes operational efficiency, making it ideal for large-scale projects.

7 Returns

The JoLiDAR-1500 features 7 echo capabilities, allowing the system to potentially capture data from up to 7 different reflecting surfaces within a single laser pulse. This capability is particularly beneficial for penetrating dense vegetation and gaining a deeper understanding of complex environments.

75° Field of View (FOV)

The JoLiDAR-1500 features a 75° Field of View (FOV). While a narrower FOV can potentially lead to higher point density within the covered area due to concentrated laser pulses. It is particularly valuable for applications requiring detailed information, such as high-resolution terrain mapping and precise vegetation characterization.

Integrated IMU System

The JoLiDAR-1500 leverages cutting-edge RTK + IMU fusion technology. This combines the high-precision positioning of Real-Time Kinematics (RTK) with the continuous orientation and motion data from an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). 

This innovative technology allows for operation without the need for a base station or Ground Control Points (GCPs), increasing efficiency and flexibility.

61MP Full-Frame Camera

The JoLiDAR-1500 goes beyond just LiDAR data collection. It's equipped with a powerful Full-frame RGB Camera featuring a high resolution of 61MP and a large sensor size (35.7mm × 23.8mm). This camera captures detailed color images (9504 × 6336 pixels) with a 21mm focal length, providing valuable visual context alongside the rich LiDAR data.
