Optech Announces 500-kHz ALTM Pegasus Print E-mail
Written by Optech   
Tuesday, 03 May 2011

Toronto, Canada, May 3, 2011 — Optech Incorporated, the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced lidar, aerial digital camera and survey instruments, is pleased to announce the latest addition to its innovative new line of multi-beam airborne imaging systems, the ALTM Pegasus HD500. 

Now available with 500-kHz capability, Pegasus maintains its leadership role as a benchmark of data collection efficiency and mapping productivity. The only turnkey mapping solution on the market to offer fully embedded passive imaging options, Pegasus combines best-of-class lidar technology with industry-leading camera solutions into a single sensor architecture. With an enhanced scan pattern that significantly increases point distribution efficiency, Pegasus continues to generate the highest quality data sets available in the market to date.

“The productivity and high density that Pegasus offers to the airborne surveyor is outstanding,” says Michael Sitar, Product Manager for Optech’s Airborne Survey Products. “However, the measure of a system’s true capability is really a function of its collection efficiency versus the quality of the ensuing data sets. They cannot be mutually exclusive.  Consistent measurement precision and accuracy, irrespective of target type and size, is what our clients demand but don’t always get in alternative designs. Pegasus delivers both, but also with the productivity that only a multi-beam active imaging solution can provide.”
