Arcturus UAV and Urban Robotics Fly 3-D Imager

ARCTURUS UAV T-20

The GeoDragon sensor system has now been integrated and flown on an Arcturus UAV T-20 Tier II unmanned aerial vehicle.  The sensor system is enclosed in a wing-mounted pod and is capable of high resolution 2-D and 3-D image capture. The sensor was designed by Urban Robotics in Portland, Oregon. The aircraft was built by Arcturus UAV in Rohnert Park, California.  The GeoDragon system can create 3-D reconstructions in near-real time and output high-resolution digital elevation models, LIDAR-like datasets, and wide area maps.  The system will be released in mid-2014.  GeoDragon adds significant 3-D imaging and mapping capabilities to the T-20 UAV.
