Bathymetric Mapping & Imaging LiDAR Unveiled

Published: 15 Jul 2021 by

Teledyne Optech has released its third generation Coastal Zone Mapping and Imaging Lidar, the CZMIL SuperNova bathymetric lidar.

Powered by Teledyne CARIS processing software, the CZMIL SuperNova is equipped with a green laser for depth penetration up to 75 meters. 

Its SmartSpacing technology enables even and efficient point spacing, real-time processing capability for reduced post-processing time and configurable modes for maximising performance in different water environments.

The system provides a wide range of inputs for climate change modelling and is Ideal for inland water environments, base mapping for coastal zones and shoreline.

To complete the solution, data is processed in CARIS Base Editor software, which leverages AI techniques for land and water discrimination and noise classification. 

The processing tools open the door to a range of processing options from datum shifts to full waveform display and editing, to the creation of enhanced information products in a wide variety of formats.

“CZMIL SuperNova builds on over 30 years of experience with airborne green laser bathymetry,” said CZMIL SuperNova Product Manager Jennifer Aitken.

“The ability to configure the system on-the-fly and optimize data collection for local conditions has significant benefit. We are getting plenty of signal at 600 meters altitude and even higher, so our coverage area is increasing without sacrificing depth penetration.”
