Quantum Systems, renowned for its innovative approach and pioneering role in LiDAR adoption for eVTOL drones since 2016, continues to advance UAV mapping solutions with the introduction of the Qube 640, which brings airborne LiDAR productivity to a lightweight drone, reducing costs while maintaining exceptional precision.

The Qube 640 redefines data acquisition across various applications. It excels in powerline inspections, vegetation surveys, archaeological exploration, and precise stand counts in forestry management. It streamlines mining operations, by providing 3D representations that aid in volume calculations and stockpile monitoring, highlighting LiDAR's versatility in converting data into actionable insights for diverse industries through outputs like colorized 3D point clouds, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), and 3D contour maps.

Qube 640: Unmatched precision and efficiency

Featuring a selectable field of view (FOV) of up to 176°, the Qube 640 utilizes Trinity Pro's capabilities for an impressive 32 km corridor data acquisition. Operating at a 120° FOV, it boosts productivity by 50% compared to its predecessor, the Qube 240. The LiDAR sensor excels in detailing foliage and tree trunks, enabling vertical scanning and minimizing outer edge mismatches through the integration of an advanced IMU. Additionally, the Qube 640 features an integrated 8MP RGB camera for colorizing the LiDAR dataset in a single flight, streamlining data gathering and enhancing overall efficiency.

The most efficient LiDAR system on a drone

The Qube 640's tight integration with the Quantum-Skynode autopilot enables simple, autonomous operations and workflows, eliminating the need for constant user interactions. When combined with Trinity Pro's capabilities, the Qube 640 achieves an impressive flight endurance of 60 minutes, making it the most potent LiDAR system available on a drone. It brings airborne LiDAR efficiency to customers across industries, enabling them to map the world faster and more precisely at a much larger scale.
