3D Laser Mapping and Neptec Technologies Sign Global OEM Agreement

Neptec’s OPAL scanner technology will complement 3D Laser Mapping’s existing portfolio to create solutions which automatically measure open pit high walls and stockpiles from static locations. The agreement allows 3D Laser Mapping to add automated measurements to mobile mining equipment such as excavators. OPAL technology paired with 3D Laser Mapping’s mining solutions will improve data capture and penetration through the dusty and particle-ridden conditions seen in mines.

“Rapidly updated terrain models are a key requirement in the modern mining industry, in both allowing rapid and accurate reporting and as an essential component of automation strategies” commented Dr Graham Hunter, Executive Chairman of 3D Laser Mapping. “The agreement will enable 3D Laser Mapping to add new, exciting solutions to our rapidly growing portfolio.”

Mike Sekerka, CEO of Neptec Technologies, added: “We are thrilled that 3D Laser Mapping has chosen our OPAL 3D laser scanners for its next-generation product solutions. Dr Hunter has an enviable track record in bringing cutting edge technology to new and practical product solutions for his global mining companies.”

3D Laser Mapping is a global developer of laser scanning solutions for the mining and infrastructure sectors. Unrivalled in providing dedicated and customer-focused geospatial business intelligence, the company specialises in integrating laser scanning hardware with its own software and peripherals to create solutions at the cutting edge of technology. Through a global operating network of regional offices and specialised local distributors, 3D Laser Mapping is able to provide frontline support and service for a growing international client base.

About Neptec Technologies Corp.

Neptec Technologies Corp. develops innovative real-time 3D robot vision products for machine automation and robotics applications in harsh environments. The company was founded in 2011 to commercialize space-technologies developed by Neptec Design Group Ltd., an award-winning space flight technology company and NASA prime contractor. Its first products are a family of obscurant-penetrating laser scanners (OPAL) and a software development tool kit (3DRi) with advanced features such as automatic change detection and object recognition and tracking. Together, these out-of-the-box “building blocks” make it easy to integrate intelligent real-time machine vision applications on autonomous off-road vehicles, and for more familiar LiDAR-based survey and measurement tasks in harsh environments. The company is located in Kanata, Ontario. For more information, visit www.neptectechnologies.com.
