Lehmann Rolls Out OpsCenter Upgrade, Drops Drone Price

The Lehmann L-A 300 drone is designed for mapping.

Lehmann Aviation has rolled out a new version of its OperationCenter, a flight preparation and mission control software program for automatic orthomosaic flights. Also, the company dropped the price for its L-A 300 fully automatic professional drone designed for mapping, because of an uptick in demand and increased production.

The new version of Lehmann OpsCenter, designed for Windows 8.1 tablets and PCs, now includes:

  • New mission control functions (holding, auto return, non-flying zone)
  • Terrain awareness during mission preparation, for safer flights in mountain areas
  • Integration with Google Earth for flight preparation and replay
  • New easier upgrade and update procedures directly through the web
  • New options to manage new cameras (GoPro, Canon) for orthomosaics and surveying.

Priced at $2,890, the L-A 300 is a professional drone designed for accurate mapping and digital elevation models (DEMs) that works with the GoPro, Canon S110 and multispectral cameras. It flies automatically for 30 to 45 minutes at a trajectory pre-prepared by the user in the OpsCenter (the range is 18.5 miles).

“In 2014 we significantly increased our production volume thanks to numerous orders from all around the world,” said Benjamin Lehmann, founder and CEO of Lehmann Aviation. “This enabled us to reduce the price for our best-sellers, all L-A-series drones. We also made the decision to follow our strategy of offering really high-tech aerial solutions at fair prices.”
