Frequently asked questions

Where is BoE Systems headquartered?

We’re located in Kansas City, MO. Our central location allows us to provide quality services throughout the U.S.

On what exactly does BoE Systems focus?

Our company focuses on aerial and mobile LiDAR, specifically integrating hardware and software applications around LiDAR cameras for multiple UAV and mobile vehicles.

Why choose BoE Systems for mobile and aerial LiDAR services?

First and foremost: honesty. This is a new era of data collection with UAV and mobile vehicles, and your data is important to your business. We are completely upfront, honest and transparent, believing that our customers will remember that as they grow.

Does BoE Systems work internationally?

BoE Systems can travel internationally. Although this does require additional time and UAV regulations vary by country, our professional team of subcontractors is ready for the job, anywhere it takes them.

How much data is LiDAR collecting every second?

One client said LiDAR is like painting the world with light. It’s a great way to think of how much data you’re collecting every second. Depending on the LiDAR used, you’re collecting roughly 300,000 – 700,000 points per second.

What will LiDAR do for my productivity level?

Data acquisition times are greatly reduced. Jobs that once took weeks can now be done in hours. Our aerial LiDAR unit along with our Ground Control Station (GCS) allows us to view data on site.

How accurate is UAV imaging?

UAV imaging has been proven to be accurate within 1 to 2 percent on volumetric measurements and within centimeters, depending on the type of data that’s gathered. UAVs fly much lower than traditional aerial data acquisition methods with high resolution cameras and high-quality sensors such as the Velodyne HDL-32 and VLP-16.

How is multi-rotor different from a fixed-wing UAV?

Multi-rotor UAVs allow for take-off and landing in a smaller location along with the ability to hover over a single location. All aircraft is regularly serviced and tested to ensure safety.

Will a UAV work for our mapping project?

We can accommodate most mapping projects, but we must adhere to FAA No Fly Zones and regulations. Please contact us to discuss your specific project.

How does aerial UAV LiDAR imaging compare with traditional methods of measurements?

LiDAR has become a common measurement system on many survey sites. Traditional methods of LiDAR require many measurements from a tripod or manned aircraft, which is expensive and time consuming. Our portable LiDAR tube allows us to transmit and receive millions of points in a few minutes. With GPS and IMU integration, we can track the path the LiDAR has taken to build a 3D map of the space that can also be used to classify the returns as vegetation, power lines, buildings, etc.

How does BoE Systems achieve survey grade accuracy?

BoE Systems uses LiDAR with IMU and RTK data that’s brought together using our custom designed hardware/software applications. We’ve recently integrated Qinertia, which is SBG Systems newest PPK software in our design. This has added another level for being able to collect accurate data whether by air or mobile vehicle.

Can BoE Systems provide a turnkey LiDAR mapping solution?

Absolutely. Our team has worked diligently to provide customers with a durable, easy-to-use LiDAR system. Our products are made of all carbon fiber material, along with industrial grade accessories. We can provide on-demand services, lease options, lease purchase and sales of either our aerial UAV and/or mobile system.

How will I get my data and can I see the past work?

If you lease an aerial or mobile unit, you can collect the data and visually inspect the point cloud after capture on Cloud Compare or QTR. We request that you send us your data so we can convert it from BoE File to .LAS format. This is done so our team of engineers can make sure the operations correctly collected your data.

If you buy or do a lease purchase, you will have full access to BoE Systems’ software and be able to process your own data.

Does BoE Systems offer master service agreements?

We do offer master service agreements. However, they range in scope in order to guarantee that one of our experts will be on site in a timely manner and give you the level of service that you expect.

Can BoE Systems provide post processing models/reports?

Yes. We’ve spent many hours working with LiDAR data. Whether our experts collect the data or you are via an equipment lease, if you need assistance with post production data our team can help.

Can BoE Systems produce a high-resolution aerial picture of our property?

Yes, BoE Systems uses 4K video and photo to create videos and pictures of your property. Additionally, we use auto-pilot technology along with photo stitching to build an orthomosaic image of the property. Also, we can manually fly areas that are not conducive to autonomous flight.

Can BoE Systems provide progression data over time on sites?

Yes. We can schedule LiDAR mapping of your site on a set time table so you can see progress over time and adjust your project schedule.

How long does it take to get volume data?

Volume data can be determined while on site usually before the UAV lands. The point cloud provides a 3D model that can be used to determine cubic yards of material. While initial measurements will be taken on site, additional modeling may be required by our modeling specialist to achieve more precise accuracy.

Does BoE Systems inspect refineries?

Yes. Our operators and staff come prepared with safety equipment to enter refineries and observe safe practices while flying above and around all refinery equipment.

Can your LiDAR model pipes and tanks?

Of course.

Can BoE Systems model and inspect cell towers?

Yes, and have proven ability to safely fly on guy-wire towers and free-standing towers.
