Teledyne Optech has announced the latest evolution in its Galaxy series of aerial LiDAR sensors, the T2000.
The company launched the latest in the Galaxy line of fully-fledged aerial LiDAR systems at INTERGEO last week.
Released alongside the compact new sensor was the G2 mount, which allows the two T2000s to be fixed upon its chassis in a single aircraft portal, a rig that the company calls the most flexible system currently on the market.
The new device has some impressive vital stats — a 2 MHz laser emission rate and a new programmable scanner. Teledyne says the scanner design allows the T2000 to maintain fixed-width data swaths in mountainous terrain with a dynamic field of view (FOV) for more equidistant point spacing.
The company says the new unit’s narrow beam divergence of 0.16 mrad (1/e) increases ground detection in heavily wooded environments through higher energy density within the laser footprint, with the narrower beam also aiding superior resolution.
