Bringing New Technology to Our Existing Relationships. When "Close Enough" Just Isn't Good Enough!

Horizon Helicopters, Inc. has recently been trained to conduct LiDAR surveys!

LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging, also LADAR) is a digital imaging technology that fires and records thousands of individual infrared survey pulses every second. The pulses record accurate distance measurements to the ground allowing us to produce a high-resolution 3D model of the earth's surface and anything that's built on or above it.

Aerial LiDAR consists of an aircraft-mounted system that can be added and removed from the airframe and is used to take images that may look similar to FLIR (Night Vision) but are able to be combined and recorded to produce maps of great detail and accuracy.
