SABRE-SCAN MOBILE MAPPING - LiDAR Surveying Product Solutions 

SABRE-SCAN Mobile Mapping LiDAR Survey used during (or as part of the) development of road infrastructure
The mobile mapping with the SABRE-Scan for Road Mapping can be carried out from the safety of a vehicle at up to highway speeds. Applications: urban planning city mapping and more, please enquire for a comprehensive list.

Data capture of up to 1 million points per second to generate high resolution 3D Point Clouds. The laser scanner utilised with the SABRE-Scan is offset at 30 degrees from vertical for improved capture of vertical objects.
The screen-capture below shows the different routes driven by the survey vehicle carrying the SABRE-SCAN LiDAR Mobile Mapping system used to generate the multi-pass raw point cloud data as displayed. All data shown is in its raw form.

The zoomed in screen-shot below shows multiple passes of the system scanned along either side of the road travelling in opposite directions. 

The criss-cross interlacing pattern is clearly visible for the helical-lines generated by the system for the multiple scans in opposite directions.
The point cloud data shown is raw unedited data generated by the SABRE-SCAN LiDAR Mobile Mapping system showing close repeatability of the precisely placed points for multiple scan passes.

Mobile LiDAR Mapping - Complementary to Main-Stream Surveying Techniques

The SABRE-Scan mobile mapping product utilising LiDAR and Imagery combined with inertial-navigation is intended to complement standard mainstream/conventional survey techniques. Both static and mobile scanning can, and should be used together as both have advantages for given circumstances/requirements respectively. The use of this approach can be used to radically reduce acquisition time and end-to-end delivery of accurate 3D information.
Mobile mapping has the ability to capture its surrounding environment at high-speed with high-definition point clouds spatially positioned with high accuracy and precision.
The SABRE-Scan system can accommodate a range of IMU’s dependent upon application from mid to high range The SABRE-Scan product provides superior performance dependent on the particular grade of IMU employed.

Mobile mapping is a useful tool for Land, Marine or Airborne deployment

SABRE mobile mapping systems are compact, light-weight and can be attached to a diverse range of vehicle/mobile platforms - pickup trucks, cars, quads, tractors, vessels/boats and small helicopters. The choice is yours!

Georeferenced Imagery Solutions Avialable. Above Ladybug5 Panoramic (360) Video Camera Plug and Play with the SABRE-SCAN mobile mapping product. The Ladybug5 uses machine vision camera global shutter type camera lens which mitigate motion blur for image capture from a moving vehicle/platform.

SABRE SKY-3D UAV LiDAR – Remote Sensor Payloads

The SABRE UAV LiDAR presently uses either any range of FARO Focus3D or SABRE S80 model laser with a single-beam which is accurately calibrated, delivering survey-grade results.

UAV LiDAR - A View from Above - Advantageous airborne operated LiDAR 

Airborne LiDAR systems offer Rapid survey of areas within difficult, inaccessible or dangerous situations for ground-based survey. 

Mounting of LiDAR systems on Drone Platforms provides enhanced results with the coverage being improved by the Line-Of-Sight. This is achieved by having a high-angled view-point from above reducing blind-spot areas when compared against the view-point seen from ground level using conventionally operated vehicle mounted LiDAR systems. The perspective of data acquisition at height also maximises the range capabilities of the utilised laser using a more ideal perpendicular angle of incidence encountered by the laser-beam. 

SABRE’s Aerial LiDAR product - high-definition SKY-3D FARO Focus 3D

The screen-capture’s below show the detail captured using the SABRE Sky-3D S120 for quarry and stockpile assessment. The airborne UAV LiDAR captured point clouds show the enhanced coverage capabilities of scanning from a 30m flying altitude.

SABRE SKY-3D S80 - light-weight vegetation and forest canopy penetrating LiDAR

The SABRE S80 laser is a lighter-weight laser more suited to penetration of vegetation and forest canopy that produces ~58K Points per second.

The SABRE S80 laser has 5 hits/returns typical distance range up to 80 metres. The Screen shot below shows the ability of the time-of-flight laser to penetrate forest tree canopy. 

Simple to operate, Portability and Security

All SABRE systems are designed with rapid deployment in mind and are sufficiently compact to be transportable for global operations. Systems have been developed from extensive LiDAR and laser System expertise as well as operational experience in the field. The UAV systems have been designed by our engineering team who stem from engineering and operations backgrounds. 

Product Solutions to the Global market for surveying and inspection

Over four years of continuous development in laser, inertial measurement units IMU, GPS/GLONASS integration have been applied to produce the SABRE SKY-3D UAV LiDAR Remote Sensor Payload system. With battery weighing in at 5.4Kg for the SABRE Sky-3D S80 and 8.4kg for the SABRE SKY-3D F-3D the FARO Focus based solution. The system can be attached to most heavy lift UAV or Drone, VTOL, Multirotor, Helicopter and manned aircraft platforms on the market.
This system is suited for many applications where surveying with LiDAR and camera technologies are needed to produce high detail, accurate 3D models of terrain or structure.
