Teledyne Optech, a Teledyne Technologies company, has introduced a compact, long-range, survey-grade LiDAR sensor for UAV and mobile applications.
The CL-360 joins the CL-90 in Teledyne Optech’s range of compact, high-accuracy LiDAR scanners and has been designed specifically to meet the needs of OEM hardware manufacturers working within the mobile, static, UAV or airborne surveying markets.
The CL-360 achieves:
- High-density LiDAR points in a full 360° plane surrounding the sensor
- Ranges exceeding 750 m (20% reflective target)
- Survey grade accuracy to less than 10 mm
- Data precision of less than 5 mm
- Scan rates of up to 250 lines per second
- Industry-leading 0.3m rad laser beam divergence (1/e2).
As well as long-range performance, the CL-360 also offers exceptional vegetation penetration and much higher target resolution, required for high-density applications, such as asset inspection and engineering projects. This is enabled by the smaller beam divergence and corresponding smaller beam footprint.
Speaking about the release of the CL-360, Mark Treiber, Product Manager for Compact LiDAR, said “We are very excited to expand our Compact LiDAR portfolio with the addition of the CL-360. The CL-360 will form the foundation of numerous forthcoming product configurations from our OEM partners for a multitude of applications and platforms.”
Part of the Teledyne Imaging Group, Teledyne Optech offer both standalone and fully integrated LiDAR and camera solutions for applications:
- airborne mapping
- airborne lidar bathymetry
- mobile mapping
- terrestrial laser scanning
- mine cavity monitoring.
The CL- 360 boasts survey-grade data precision and is the latest addition to Teledyne Optech’s new range of compact LiDAR sensors for UAV and mobile applications.
