Inertial Labs and E38 Company Announce Strategic Partnership for Advanced LiDAR Integration in E455 Drones

Inertial Labs and E38 Company Announce Strategic Partnership for Advanced LiDAR Integration in E455 Drones

13 February 2024

Inertial Labs, a leading innovator in the field of inertial sensor technology, and E38 Company, a prominent developer of cutting-edge drone solutions, are excited to announce a strategic partnership that will see the integration of Inertial Labs' RESEPI Payload LiDAR technology into E38's advanced E455 drone platform. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in utilizing unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for professional surveying, mapping, and inspection services.

RESEPI (Remote Sensing Payload Instrument) is a sensor-fusion platform for accuracy-focused remote sensing applications. RESEPI utilizes a high-performance Inertial Labs INS (GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation System) and a high-accuracy single or dual-antenna GNSS receiver integrated with a Linux-based processing core and data-logging software. The RESEPI Payload LiDAR system will be seamlessly integrated with the E455 drone, enhancing its capabilities to capture high-resolution, 3D spatial data across various environments. This integration is set to revolutionize how industries such as construction, agriculture, and environmental monitoring conduct their operations, offering unprecedented detail and accuracy.

The E455 is an innovative fixed-wing vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) UAS designed to operate on battery power with a maximum takeoff weight of up to 65 lbs. It features a removable payload bay with an open architecture at the center of gravity, ensuring maximum utility and flexibility for various mission requirements. The E455 can fly for over 2 hours or carry up to 15 lbs of payload, making it an ideal platform for extensive surveying and mapping missions with the integrated RESEPI Payload LiDAR system.

Jamie Marraccini, Inertial Labs CEO, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, "By combining our advanced RESEPI Payload LiDAR with E38's sophisticated E455 drone, we are setting a new standard for aerial surveying and mapping technology. This collaboration represents a leap forward in our mission to provide comprehensive, turnkey solutions that empower industries to achieve more."

Andrew Wilber, Business Development Specialist for Event 38 Unmanned Systems, Inc., added, "The E455's unique VTOL capabilities, extended flight duration, and versatile payload capacity, combined with Inertial Labs' leading RESEPI LiDAR technology, enhance our offering to the market. It provides our clients an unparalleled, accurate, efficient, and safe data collection tool. We're proud to partner with Inertial Labs and excited for the opportunities this partnership opens up."

Combining the E455 drone's robust flight capabilities with the high-precision LiDAR technology of the RESEPI payload will enable users to gather detailed topographic data in challenging terrains and under diverse conditions.
