What is AGL?

LightWare microLiDAR® sensors provide the range and precision you need for Above ground level (AGL). This is critical to UAV operations to ensure compliance with height restriction imposed by aviation authorities, and to facilitate automatic take-off and landing. AGL also assists with the scaling of objects in photogrammetry and is critical in inspection and surveillance applications by allowing drones to hover in place.
LightWare microLiDAR® sensors are usually installed in a downward-facing orientation and its small form factor makes it perfectly suited for proper integration into airframes and even into the struts of multicopters.
