Brunswick Power Plant

AXIS GeoAviation LLC provided LiDAR and imagery acquisition services to provide client the detailed topographic & imagery data set for planning and analysis of flood hazards for the Duke Energy Brunswick Nuclear Plant.  This 60 acre site required acquisition during leaf off conditions and tidal hydro captured within +/- 2.5 hours of low tide.

Challenges that were overcome included acquisition which had to occur during a specific tide level between certain sun angles while dealing with rain and clouds.

Cecil County Maryland HD-LiDAR

Using a 2004 Cessna 206H Aircraft equipped with Harrier 68i Sensor, AGA acquired HD-LiDAR pointcloud density of approximately 5 ppsm (points per square meter) and digital color imagery at a GSD (ground sample distance) of .25’ pixel resolution.  Under contract data collection, flight reports, processing and surveying services were provided.

Queen Anne’s County Maryland HD-LiDAR

Using a 2004 Cessna 206H Aircraft equipped with Harrier 68i Sensor, AXIS flew at an altitude of 2000’ AMT to achieve an HD-LiDAR pointcloud density of approximately 5 ppsm (points per square meter) and digital color imagery at a GSD (ground sample distance) of .25’ pixel resolution.

Maryland SHA HD-LiDAR

Using a 2004 Cessna 206H Aircraft equipped with Harrier 68i Sensor, AXIS flew at an altitude of ~1800’ AMT to achieve an HD-LiDAR pointcloud density of approximately 6 ppsm (points per square meter) and digital color imagery at a GSD (ground sample distance) of .25’ pixel resolution. Aerial data collected was used to produce design scale mapping data for 1” = 10’ mapping with 1’ topography adhering to National Map Accuracy Standards for large scale mapping on various tasks throughout the State of Maryland.

Wallops Island VA HD-LiDAR

As a subcontractor AXIS GeoAviation LLC was contracted to acquire HD-LiDAR data to be used for mapping in support of Wallops Island Beach monitoring project.  Data was acquired within +/- 2.5 hours of low tide.  Acquisition using a 2004 Cessna 206H equipment with Harrier 68i Sensor at an altitude of 1722’ AMT for this 6.5 square mile corridor.
