Atlantic’s lidar systems are used in our mission-ready remote sensing aircraft and will soon be able to generate up to 2 million pulses of energy per second. And with our duel sled configuration, we can actually double that, allowing us to use proven technology and offer the same pulse density being marketed from emerging lidar technologies.
One of our key principles is to be purposefully different—to refuse to do things as they always have been done and seek better solutions to best serve our clients. Because of this drive for innovation, we’ve made significant investments in technology. We have purchased 3 Galaxy Prime sensors, the most advanced sensors on the market. The new sensors have twice the laser power as previous models, allowing a higher pulse density collection, and feature two revolutionary technologies: SwathTRAK™ and PulseTRAK™.
Technological advancements have grown lidar 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 bare earth elevation models, forest canopy models, engineering design, airfield obstructions, vegetation mapping, and utility management.
