AirGon LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of GeoCue Group Inc., has been appointed the North American distributor for France-based YellowScan’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) LiDAR systems.
Under the agreement, AirGon will sell, train and support YellowScan’s complete line of drone LiDAR scanning systems. The system choices range from the mapping-grade YellowScan Mapper II to the advanced, RIEGL-based YellowScan Vx and the new Velodyne VLP-32C-based Surveyor Ultra.
“Drone LiDAR systems are rapidly advancing and thus must be capitalized over a fairly short life span,” says Lewish Graham, general manager of AirGon and president of GeoCue Group. “When you face this challenge, reliability is keenly important. In addition, the broad applicability of the various YellowScan systems from mapping to survey accuracy allows us to meet each customer’s unique needs.”
The new agreement became effective in December. AirGon, also a DJI enterprise dealer, offers a range of software and hardware for implementing drone mapping solutions. AirGon is also the creator of the Loki PPK direct positioning system for DJI drones. The company has its headquarters in Madison, Ala., and a Canadian office in Whitby, Ontario.
