UAV Partner Spotlight: Shining the Light into the OEM Partnership with LiDARUSA

Jeff Fagerman, LiDARUSA

For today’s RiCAST, we are joined by RIEGL USA’s My-Linh Truong, ULS / UAS Business Segment Manager, as she leads a discussion with one of our OEM Partners, Jeff Fagerman from LiDARUSA. Jeff is a graduate of Ferris State University’s survey program with a BS in Survey Engineering and later from Purdue University with a MS in Photogrammetry. After 14 years as a lead photogrammetry software developer, he started LiDARUSA in 1999, providing conventional photogrammetry AT service.

The two go in-depth on Jeff’s start in the industry, how RIEGL USA and LiDARUSA have strengthened their OEM partnership, and on LiDARUSA’s integrations of RIEGL’s unmanned LiDAR sensors.

For our unmanned users, this is a RiCAST you don’t want to miss out on!
