Additional enhancements include an expanded operating envelope via an all-new variable laser power option (M300); new user- selectable scan patterns for increased point-pattern flexibility; higher scan frequencies for improved point distribution; next-generation POS technology with a 220-channel GPS receiver; compatibility with Optech’s new 12-bit IWD-2 Intelligent Waveform Digitizer; and compatibility with an all-new multi-station sensor platform enabling scalable tightly-integrated peripheral sensor options from Optech’s diverse camera product line.
“In addition to increased sensor performance and data quality, many of our clients are also looking for ways to increase their simultaneous data acquisition capability, particularly within the engineering/corridor market space,” said Michael Sitar, Optech’s Airborne Products Manager. “Our new multi-sensor mounts for Orion enable our clients to build ‘custom’ sensor suites and add value to their product deliverables using an off-the-shelf universal mounting system. Because they’re available in 2 or 4-station designs with nadir and oblique mounting options, the new mounts provide incredible sensor flexibility and easy installation without sacrificing platform rigidity and data integrity. Coupled with the new Orion M/C 300, our integrated sensor suites offer a powerful mapping solution with tremendous scalability.”
