Optech Announces Release of New Pegasus HA500 ALTM for High Density, High Altitude Mapping Print E-mail
Written by Optech   
Monday, 03 December 2012

Toronto, Canada, December 3, 2012 — Optech, the world leader in the development, manufacture and support of advanced lidar and camera survey instruments, is pleased to announce the release of the Optech Pegasus HA500 ALTM, a purpose-built wide-area mapping sensor that is expressly focused on maximizing collection efficiency.

Capable of altitudes up to 5000 m AGL (16,500 ft), this powerful new sensor has the unique ability to collect multi-beam lidar data throughout its entire operating envelope, for industry-leading point cloud density and accuracy at any altitude.  With two new high-performance lasers and an embedded 60-MP digital metric camera, the efficiency of the Pegasus HA500 eclipses all other commercial airborne lidar mapping sensors available to date.

“Our clients have been demanding an active sensor for day/night use that not only combines high altitude collection efficiency with high point density, but also provides the point precision, accuracy and tree canopy penetration that only a lidar sensor can provide,” commented Michael Sitar, Optech's Airborne Business and Product Manager. “The Pegasus HA500 is the culmination of that effort, in that its unique twin-laser configuration ensures the same data fidelity and measurement precision irrespective of the number of beams, unlike lesser single-laser multi-beam designs."

The Pegasus HA500 also incorporates many of the same productivity-focused performance features as the Optech Orion ALTM sensors. The Orion sensors are popular for their ultra-compact size, flexibility in installation, and scalability with external peripheral sensors, which enable custom yet seamless multi-sensor configurations. Performance features common to both ALTMs include: real-time point display for in-air true coverage verification; a real-time in-air LAS file generator for rapid response applications that demand immediate high-accuracy data delivery possible only with its OmniSTAR™-enabled POS™ system; lidar auto-calibration software incorporating rigorous least-squares adjustment methods for exceptional data quality and accuracy quantification; and full compatibility with the latest true 12-bit Optech IWD-2 Intelligent Waveform Digitizer.
