Jake McCay has been involved in promoting lidar technology through various television shows during his time at LIDARUSA.

🦅 One interesting program was the Netflix Original "Pirate Gold of Adak Island," where he traveled to a remote island in Alaska. Although the team was primarily using a UAV-borne lidar system to search for gold, what truly captivated them was the abundance of bald eagles, who were as bothersome as seagulls on a beach.

His more recent exposure came from appearing on an episode of "Expedition Unknown" with Josh Gates, where they embarked on a quest to discover Italy's lost empire.
