NEXUS 800 Powered by HYPACK

The new NEXUS 800 powered by HYPACK is a full end-to-end solution that represents a new paradigm in UAV data collection by seamlessly harmonizing Lidar data with photogrammetry. The Nexus 800 is a turnkey system that tightly integrates hardware and software to provide a cutting-edge solution for LiDAR survey planning, data
acquisition, post processing and analysis, and product creation. The Nexus 800 UAV does it all in one sweep. It fuses the data collected from a Canon SLR camera, Velodyne Lidar sensor and SBG Intertial GNSS. For mission critical application where time for data collection and fast processing is of the essence there is no need to look any further than the Nexus 800.
The software engine behind it, is one of the most powerful engines available today, Hypack Hysweep. With Hysweep you complete your survey by combining both data from your Multibeam dataset with your UAV dataset. Furthermore it enables the use of Pointcloud data.
