‘Prashant Surveys’ has more than 30 years of experience in the field of professional Land Surveying, Mapping & GIS, using the modern & innovative technologies. Accordingly, we have acquired Network Survey Vehicle (NSV) of Leica ‘Pegasus Two’ along with the pavement camera in March 2015 for survey of the highways in India. We have carried out the survey of more than 12,000 Km of Expressways, National Highways, State Highways & Major District Roads in the past few years with our Two numbers of Leica NSV / LiDAR instruments owned by us.
Leica Pegasus Two Network Survey Vehicle (NSV) with pavement camera.
We have all necessary resources and equipment in-house, like two numbers of “Leica Pegasus Two” NSV / Mobile LiDAR Instruments with pavement cameras, Leica GS14 DGPS RTK receivers, high capacity Work Stations, licensed software’s, skilled manpower, with sufficient experience, for Survey of Inventory of Road & Condition of Road as per MORTH policy requirements, with high quality and accuracy within optimum cost & given time frame.
We at ‘Prashant Surveys’ have the capacity to undertake the NSV survey works of any type of 2/4/6/8 lane Highways in India. Presently we can capture about 200 Lane Km length of highways per day, using our two numbers of ‘Leica Pegasus Two’ NSV systems.
