Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology is an airborne laser profiling system that accurately and quickly measures the position and reflectivity of surface features. Atlantic’s LiDAR systems are used in our mission-ready remote sensing aircraft and can generate up to 500,000 pulses of energy per second.

LiDAR technology has grown from a supportive technology to a foundational tool for developing robust remote sensing datasets. Enhancements in LiDAR hardware and post-processing techniques make LiDAR a valuable tool for applications beyond simple topographic data development. LiDAR is frequently used for developing datasets such as impervious surfaces, airfield obstructions, vegetation mapping and utility management.
