Geiger-mode LiDAR , A Powerful New Approach

VeriDaas’ partnership with L3Harris Technologies has created a new generation of high-density LiDAR data, built on the ability to achieve previously “premium” point cloud collection faster, more accurately, and more cost-effectively. In setting a new standard for quality and speed, VeriDaaS’ Geiger-Mode LiDAR also creates opportunity to utilize richer data in new and innovative ways.

We are collecting an unprecedented level and scope of geospatial data through our Hi-Definition Geiger-mode systems. It enables levels of collection efficiency, detail and accuracy rarely seen on the market.

Our standard off-the-shelf high-density LiDAR data is 30 points per square meter (ppsm) to 50 ppsm, however this data can be processed at multiple levels of resolution to meet your requirements and achieve your project or mission goals.
