Microdrones Reveals First NDAA-Compliant LiDAR Drone Surveying System
At Commercial UAV Expo in Vegas last week, Microdrones announced their new, NDAA-compliant EasyOne LiDAR solution. The solution was also on show at the nighttime, CSI demonstration hosted by Sundance Media Group: where the Microdrones solution executed a grid mission in moments to produce a digital twin of a simulated crime scene.

During the Commercial UAV Expo, Microdrones announced its upcoming EasyOneLiDAR NDAA. This drone surveying system features a new 128 channel LiDAR sensor and Triple 1’’ cameras with mechanical shutters, granting a combined resolution of RGB 60 MP.
“EasyOneLiDAR NDAA provides all of the convenience, ease of use, small form factor and accuracy of our EasyOne system, but this version is NDAA compliant, including the LiDAR and imaging payload,” said Vivien Heriard Dubreuil, CEO of Microdrones’ parent company mdGroup.
“When we launched our EasyOne system earlier this year, we saw some big interest from public enterprises, but they needed full NDAA-compliance,” said Microdrones VP of Sales Vincent Legrand. “That’s why we are so pleased to announce EasyOneLiDAR NDAA. It’s the first complete solution of its kind to hit the market with NDAA-compliance.”
The company also developed a new ground control system and LiDAR payload in order to achieve NDAA-compliance.
“We are taking pre-orders now, for delivery in October; interest has been high and we anticipate strong ordering activity in Q4 for this system,” added Legrand. “There is some pent up demand for something like this in the market.”
