Teledyne Optech, a Teledyne Technologies company has announced that Atlantic is first to take possession of its new Optech G2 sensor system, which will accommodate their two Optech Galaxy Prime airborne LiDAR sensors. Atlantic will also take delivery of three Optech Galaxy T2000 LiDAR sensors by the end of Q1. The G2/T2000 upgrade purchase will bolster Atlantic’s single-swath pulse density and operational efficiency for forestry, rail, electrical utilities, and other high-density applications.

The Galaxy T2000 features a true 2-MHz laser PRF, even greater range performance and further improved scan efficiency. The customizable G2 sensor system incorporates two Prime or T2000 sensors and is configured for adjustable fore and aft pitch to provide optimum vertical surface resolution and ground point density in forestry, corridor and urban projects. Using two T2000 sensors on the G2 will enable Atlantic to survey at a full 4 MHz on the ground and achieve staggering point densities to rival flash LiDAR capabilities.

“We are thrilled to partner with Atlantic to deploy not only the T2000, our 4th generation Galaxy and another major leap forward in airborne survey productivity and accuracy, but also the revolutionary G2 dual-sensor system which provides the best that an airborne LiDAR system can offer, and now at unrivaled point densities thanks to its true 4-MHz laser PRF,” said Optech executive vice president and general manager Michel Stanier.

“Atlantic and our clients have benefited from our initial investment in three Optech Galaxy Primes,” said Brian Mayfield, president and CEO of Atlantic. “Teledyne Optech’s revolutionary technologies of SwathTRAK and PulseTRAK are truly game changers – especially in variable terrain. We have so much faith in the additional advancements in the laser head coming from Optech’s engineers, we have pre-purchased the T2000 upgrade for all three of our sensors." 

"Combined with the G2 dual sled that we also purchased, the T2000 in dual configuration will allow us to utilize proven LiDAR technology to achieve similar pulse densities to less-proven, emerging LiDAR sensors that have been commonly discussed in recent years.”
