Hovermap ST-X Scan Range

With a LiDAR sensing range of 300 m (984 ft), the Hovermap ST-X allows you to fly higher and faster to expand your transect coverage and provide faster data acquisition over larger areas. As a result, fewer flights are required to cover an area, reducing the time spent setting up, packing, moving, and merging scans.

Vegetation Penetration

Triple returns and a rotating LiDAR (not statically mounted) make the Hovermap ST-X perfect for scanning terrain or forests. The resulting point cloud is dense, making it easy to classify scanned objects.

Real-Time Point Cloud

Hovermap ST-X streams a point cloud map directly to your control tablet to display a real-time data preview as you capture it. The addition of Emesent’s Long-Range Radio accessory enables live streaming and control of the device from up to 20x further, allowing you to view real-time data and set waypoints for guided exploration from an even greater distance.

Survey Grade Scans

In addition to improving accuracy for common mapping tasks, Hovermap ST-X with ground control points can create survey-grade scans for long, linear assets, large and feature-poor environments previously challenging for other SLAM-based systems.

Durability & Adaptablity

The robust, weatherproof Hovermap ST-X is dust and splash-resistant, making it ideal for use in dusty or harsh environments. Expand your options with accessory ports and mounting points, and add long-range radio, colorization hardware, or an inspection camera.

Benefits of Hovermap ST-X Slam-based LiDAR system.

Collapse According Hovermap Why
Data Collection Speed
Capture more than one million points per second for more accurate data over long distances in less time.
Uniquely Versatile
The plug-and-play design and quick-release mechanism make it easy to switch between modes. Use Hovermap ST-X as a handheld scanner; Connect it to a drone, vehicle, or pole. Lower the Hovermap ST-X into a cage or attach it to a backpack for easy data collection anywhere. The lightweight design makes it an easy-to-carry accessory and ensures a longer flight time.
Sub-Centimeter Indoor Scans
The award-winning wildcat SLAM solution, Automated Ground Control Points and improved LiDAR sensor accuracy provide a cleaner, more precise point cloud with 4 – 5mm accuracy allowing you to obtain more accurate measurements.
Autonomous Capabilities
Advanced autonomy and 360° collision avoidance enables flight and mapping in challenging surroundings. Including beyond visual line of sight and communication range or even in GPS-denied environments while the operator remains in a safe location.
