Optech Announces New Waveform Digitizer for ALTM

Optech Incorporated, the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced lidar, aerial digital camera and survey instruments, is pleased to announce the latest release of its popular IWD Intelligent Waveform Digitizer for its innovative line of ALTM Airborne Laser Terrain Mappers. The new IWD-2 provides increased 12-bit amplitude sample resolution, enabling the detection and discrimination of target reflections from even the most complex waveform. The intelligence built into the digitizer ensures that only useful information is recorded. This translates into the efficient recording of waveform files that are more information-dense, yielding 1:1 recording rates at laser firing rates of up to 125 kHz—and automatic sub-sampling at higher rates. Coupled with ruggedized solid-state disk storage, the IWD-2 now offers unrestricted flight altitudes. Learn More
