CHC Navigation introduces the AlphaAir 10
CHC Navigation (CHCNAV) has introduced the AlphaAir 10 (AA10), an innovative airborne mapping system that seamlessly integrates high-precision LiDAR technology, accurate GNSS positioning, IMU orientation, and an industrial-grade full-frame orthophoto camera.
The AA10 features a lightweight, compact design and effortless compatibility with a wide range of UAV platforms. The AlphaAir 10 can detect up to 8 target echoes utilizing advanced multi-target capabilities, greatly enhancing its ability to penetrate dense vegetation and acquire precise ground surfaces.
The AA10 incorporates a high-precision navigation algorithm that works in conjunction with the CHCNAV LiDAR to deliver 5 mm repeatability and exceptional absolute precision in the 2 to 5 cm range, even in complex environments. Capable of long-range measurements up to 800 m, rapid scanning at 500,000 points per second, and a continuously rotating mirror that enables scanning speeds of 250 scans per second, the AA10 enhances the detail of aerial mapping operations.
