Happy Holidays from the entire LSI team! We hope you enjoy the holiday season and have a great New Year! Thanks to our many valued customers that made 2016 a memorable year and we look forward to new opportunities in 2017.
November 2016 – LSI is pleased to have completed the 2016 MLTC LiDAR and imagery data collection phase of the services contract. The following First Nation communities were flown: Island Lake, Mudie Lake, Turnor Lake, Waterhen Lake and Eagle Lake, all in Saskatchewan. The total 2016 program flown was 386 sq. km. The 2017 program for Buffalo River, Putunak and Lalonge communities will commence in the Spring of next year.
November 2016 – LSI is pleased to announce the completion of airborne LiDAR and digital imagery data collection in Saskatchewan for the Prince Alberta Grand Council (PAGC). The following First Nation communities were flown: Little Red River, Sturgeon Lake, Cumberland House, Shoal Lake and Sucker River. The total project area was approximately 400 sq. km.
October 2016 – LSI is pleased to announce the award of a new gas pipeline project located in western Canada. The project will be flown using a twin engine Navajo aircraft and data collection will be completed before the end of October, weather permitting.
October 2016 – LSI is pleased to announce the award of a new transmission line LiDAR survey in NW Ontario. The project will be undertaken using LSI’s MATRIX LiDAR system installed in a fixed wing aircraft. Project is expected to start October 20th weather permitting.
October 2016 – LSI’s wholly owned subsidiary LiDAR Services, LLC based in Las Vegas Nevada has just been awarded a transmission line thermal rating project in the USA. The project schedule is to have all data collected before the end of October.
October 2016 – LSI has been awarded a 600 linear km (373 mile) transmission line LiDAR vegetation mapping survey in east central Canada. This project is for the same Electrical Utility client that LSI has flown over 4000 linear km of transmission lines in 2015 and 2016 combined. LSI is planning to mobilize one of it’s MATRIX LiDAR systems to the project area on October 7th.
September 2016 – LSI has completed a second airborne LiDAR survey for TerraX Mineral Inc., over their Yellowknife City Gold Project which is located immediately north and south of Yellowknife NWT. The first TerraX LiDAR survey was completed in 2014 and with recent new land acquisitions, a second LiDAR survey was needed to tie these new land acquisitions into the existing LiDAR data base. All LiDAR and imagery data was collected in one day using a twin engine aircraft.
September 2016 – LSI has completed a LiDAR survey over the former Rayrock Mine an abandoned and decommissioned uranium mine located approximately 145 kilometres (km) northwest of Yellowknife NWT. LSI was contracted by a large engineering firm to collect LiDAR and imagery data over the old mine site. The purpose of the survey is to assess the hydrology/hydrogeology to determine watersheds, flow directions and sinks in and around the mine site.
September 2016 – LSI has finished data collection over a proposed 170 linear km. new transmission line route in Western Canada. In addition, a number of new substation sites were also surveyed. LSI used the MATRIX LiDAR system flying at 400 m above the ground to get a laser point density of 10 points / m2.
