Description

The μLanding Lite provides accurate above-ground-level (AGL) altitude information in real time for autonomous take-off, landing, and waypoint navigation for UAVs/drones, as well as maintaining a target altitude during flight. μLanding Lite is the smallest and lightest radar altimeter on the market,and is a great solution – even for small drones.  Designed with the end user in mind, μLanding Lite features quick installation, ease of use, and a seamless interface with Aerotenna’s OcPoC SoC flight controller, or other flight controllers. It supports all terrain or surfaces with exceptional performance over water and bushes.

The benefits to Drone makers, developers, and service providers:

  • High precision and wide sensing range
  • Miniaturized, compact, lightweight, and low power consumption design
  • Easy integration with any airframe
  • Reliable assistant for autonomous take-off and landing
  • High accuracy in all weather conditions
  • Detection for all-terrain
  • Low power consumption for longer flight time
  • Low cost
