Delivering a quality lidar product quickly and efficiently requires rapid acquisition of data with the required point density, a refined processing approach, and a robust set of QA/QC measures. The initial step, acquisition, is a critical phase because all other downstream processes are dependent upon it.

To ensure the highest degree of collection efficiency, the Merrick-Surdex Joint Venture owns and operates a large collection of aircraft and sensors of differing capabilities. Collective, these assets can be combined to achieve the optimal efficiency for every project, delivering our clients the highest quality products with the fastest delivery times at a competitive price.

The following are the Joint-Venture’s acquisition aircraft and sensors:
