recently entered into a Master
Services Agreement with
Hawkeye Helicopter, LLC
(Hawkeye) to provide preci-
sion helicopter-mounted lidar
solutions to both Quantum
Spatial and Hawkeye clients.
Through this agreement,
Quantum Spatial’s High Accuracy Mapping system
pod will be mounted on one of Hawkeye’s helicopters
while an on-board computer collects and stores the
data sets or point clouds. Each of the points contained
within these data sets or point clouds are geographi-
cally referenced, tying each point to a precise latitude,
longitude, and altitude or elevation. These data sets or
point clouds are then analyzed, classified, and compiled
by lidar specialists. The system was recently used to fly
a transportation solution project in Kansas. For more
detailed information please call 1-855-255-5212 or visit
