Teledyne Optech extends its innovative airborne lidar sensor series with new corridor mapping model
The new Galaxy CM2000’s small laser footprint allows for detection of fine corridor features
Vaughan, CANADA ─ Teledyne Optech, a Teledyne Technologies [NYSE:TDY] company and global leader in advanced lidar sensors has extended its bestselling Galaxy lineup to include the CM2000 ,a new sensor specifically designed for corridor mapping.
With a true measuring rate of up to 2 million points per second, the Galaxy CM2000 delivers precise detail of fine corridor elements such as electric wires and conductors, distribution power poles, railway signs, cellular tower antennas, as well the ability to detect fine changes in the ground over time for pipeline monitoring.
The CM2000’s adjustable field of view, provides users with the flexibility to narrow the field of view to the exact width of their corridor and thus concentrate the laser measurements on their precise target. This combination of an adjustable field of view, and a measurement rate of 2 million points per second, will deliver data resolution that allows for advanced analytics, insights, and decision making.
The Galaxy CM2000 has the smallest laser footprint in the market allowing for complete detection of towers, transmission and distribution wires and attachment points on power poles. In addition, the CM2000 has built in roll compensation which corrects for turbulence on the aircraft, maintaining a constant swath width on the ground.
“The true advantage of the Galaxy CM2000 is its ability to improve the mapping of the infrastructures that we all rely on every day – including the electric grid we count on for power, or the roads and rail we depend on for safe travel. This is accomplished by providing an astounding level of detail via true 2 million points per second straight to the ground and a small laser footprint that allows for the modelling of complex targets like electric towers and distribution wires,” commented Malek Singer, Airborne Product Manager at Teledyne Optech.
The Galaxy CM2000 will be launched on August 12, 2020 with a live webinar event showcasing features and data acquired by the sensor in corridor mapping survey. Register for one of the available sessions:
