AGM Systems is the first company in Russia to use lidar on fixed-wing-type unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for mobile mapping solutions.
Mike Ball, in an Unmanned Systems Technology story, wrote how AGM Systems is using Velodyne’s Ultra Puck lidar sensor in the new AGM-MS3 UAV mapping solution. AGM Systems serves global leaders in the energy sector with its multi-functional, high performance technology based on Velodyne’s lidar.
The article quotes Mischenko Yury, Production Director at AGM Systems, saying:
“Velodyne’s Ultra Puck lidar sensors are reliable, accurate and versatile technological solutions. They meet the needs of our customers with low weight, low power consumption, and ease of integration. Velodyne is a well-respected name in the industry and a valued partner for us.”
An Earth Imaging Journal post, quotes AGM customer Kamina Nadezha, Rector, Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography, saying:
“The data quality of the AGM-MS3, enabled by Velodyne Lidar’s Ultra Puck, is confirmed by assessments carried out at a specialized testing site of the university. In the course of the study, the accuracy, detail, repeatability and stability of the system were evaluated. At the moment, this is the best solution on the Russian market for UAV mapping with lidar, verified by our university.”
The AGM-MS3 solution is AGM Systems’ second generation of one of the most popular UAV lidar scanning technologies for mapping in Russia.
