Geodetics is an organization that is dedicated to providing advanced sensing and navigation technologies, and the product they were showing off at the Commercial UAV Expo demonstrated that commitment. The Geo-MMS is a fully integrated LiDAR mapping payload for integration with drones. Raw data from the integrated sensors is recorded and can be post-processed using Geodetics’ LiDAR tool software package to directly geo-reference the LiDAR point clouds with LAS format output. It can be used in various commercial capacities, including precision agriculture, oil & gas, construction, mining and more.

We spoke with Dr. Jeff Fayman, CTO at Geodetics, during the Expo to discuss the new market that Geodetics is looking to service with the Geo-MMS, which stands for mobile mapping system. He talked through the convergence of the low cost technology along with the impact of Part 107 in terms of how all these developments are opening up brand new opportunities.
