FIRM ADDS PLANE TO FLEET

The Star Democrat - - REAL ESTATE -

EAS­TON — AXIS GeoAvi­a­tion LLC (AGA) has added a Vul­can Air P68C twinengine air­craft to the firm’s fleet.

The ad­di­tional plane al­lows AGA to sup­port fu­ture aerial sur­vey­ing and map­ping projects in the South­east U.S., Caribbean and na­tion­wide. AGA’s sis­ter com­pany, AXIS GeoS­pa­tial LLC re­cently ac­quired Map­ping Re­source Group,Inc. of Florida with a sig­nif­i­cant cus­tomer base in the South­east and the Mid-At­lantic re­gions of the U.S. and the Caribbean.

The Vul­can P68C pro­vides the ad­di­tional ca­pac­ity to serve AXIS’ clients, as well as ver­sa­til­ity in that it is fast enough for aerial im­agery col­lec­tion yet can be flown slower and at lower al­ti­tudes to cap­ture higher den­sity LiDAR data.

Ad­di­tional air­craft in AGA’s fleet in­clude a Cessna 206H and a Piper Navajo.

In ad­di­tion to its grow­ing fleet, AGA has ex­panded its ca­pa­bil­ity to col­lect LiDAR data through the pur­chase of two RIEGL VQ 1560i dual-chan­nel air­borne map­ping sen­sors. AGA in­vested in the ad­di­tional LiDAR sen­sors to meet the in­creas­ing client de­mand for higher den­sity datasets. As ex­perts in Hi-Def­i­ni­tion LiDAR ac­qui­si­tion, AGA of­fers sur­vey data col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and clas­si­fi­ca­tion for de­sign scale map­ping of air­ports, col­lege cam­puses, en­vi­ron­men­tal re­me­di­a­tion, high­ways, rail­roads, pipe­lines, cor­ri­dors, and other de­sign and main­te­nance projects. Cur­rently, AXIS GeoAvi­a­tion is the only com­pany on the East Coast to own two RIEGL VQ 1560i sen­sors.

“We, at AXIS, see rapidly evolv­ing tech­nol­ogy trends that will trans­form the way in which civil en­gi­neers, ar­chi­tects, in­fra­struc­ture man­agers, and GIS pro­fes­sion­als plan and de­sign so­lu­tions for to­mor­row’s geos­pa­tial needs,” Justin Lah­man, CEO of AXIS GeoAvi­a­tion, said. “Our lat­est ex­pan­sion and in­vest­ments are based on our pre­dic­tions of the in­no­va­tions that will re­de­fine the scope of work in to­mor­row’s sur­vey­ing, en­gi­neer­ing and geos­pa­tial mar­kets. Our po­si­tion­ing is founded on in­tel­li­gent prepa­ra­tion for the fu­ture; us­ing the past only to make smarter pre­dic­tions.”

The new ac­qui­si­tions bring the to­tal as­sets owned by AGA to three fixed-wing manned air­craft, two Un­manned Air­craft Sys­tems (UAS), one Vex­cel Ul­traCam Ea­gle sys­tem, one

RIEGL LMS-Q1560 LiDAR sen­sor, and two RIEGL VQ 1560i LiDAR sen­sors. AGA cur­rently em­ploys four pilots and eight crew mem­bers op­er­at­ing out of its Eas­ton and Or­mond Beach, Fla., hangars. About AXIS GeoAvi­a­tion
