Jan. 20, 2015 – The forensic firearms unit of the Washington State Patrol’s Seattle crime laboratory deployed Leica Geosystems unmanned aircraft system (UAS) technology in 2014 support of a criminal investigation in an extremely challenging outdoor environment. This case study, along with the latest updates on UAS, were presented in a webinar that can now be accessed on-demand.
Leica UAS are able to quickly and automatically map and measure complex geospatial environments from an airborne perspective. These systems can be legally operated today by qualified U.S. public safety agencies. Leica UAS are poised to revolutionize the way in which investigators capture crime and crash scenes, and assist with search and rescue, tactical/disaster response and emergency operations.
In this on-demand webinar, Tony Grissim and Bryan Baker of Leica Geosystems are joined by R.T. Wyant, supervisor of the the forensic firearms unit of the Washington State Patrol’s Seattle crime laboratory, who shares insights on his agency’s experience with the technology.
• How the Aibot X6 UAS supports a variety of payload sensors for different applications
• How Leica UAS seamlessly integrate with Leica 3D terrestrial laser scanners and GNSS
• How compelling 3D data can easily be generated that is both accurate and georeferenced
• The latest news about FAA flight regulations
