August 4, 2015 — Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce that it is displaying its latest technologies for surveying land and sea at the Geomatics Indaba 2015 conference on August 11 to 13 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Geomatics Indaba is one of Africa’s largest exhibition and training events for strategic infrastructure planning and spatial technology, and Teledyne Optech will display several solutions to the challenges faced by this industry in Africa. Attendees interested in wide-area surveying for infrastructure development, mapping, and engineering and construction applications can hear about how the Optech Galaxy airborne lidar makes multipulse blind zones a thing of the past with its revolutionary PulseTRAK™ technology while still collecting accurate data from high altitudes. Teledyne Optech staff will also show how surveyors can use the Optech Titan to collect multispectral data for purposes like environmental monitoring and automated land classification. Surveyors wanting to use the Optech CZMIL Nova for river and coastline monitoring will be excited to learn that they can take advantage of its unparalleled depth penetration in turbid waters without a large cost outlay thanks to the CZMIL Project Program.
Underground, Teledyne Optech will show several solutions for engineering and mining applications, including the new wireless Cavity Monitoring System (CMS) V500 model, which improves mine safety and productivity by enabling remote lidar and video surveys of dangerous and inaccessible parts of the mine. On the surface, the Optech ILRIS terrestrial laser scanner has two new options to complement its highly accurate data: The ILRIS UAV quickly produces rich colorized point clouds by pairing the ILRIS with a camera-equipped UAV-mounted camera, while Gexcel’s Open Pit Mine Monitoring System turns ILRIS into an early-warning system against landslides through automated survey execution, data analysis, and alarms. Finally, attendees who need rapid 3D mapping of urban areas and open-pit mines can see which model of Optech Lynx mobile mapper is right for them, the dual-scanner survey-grade Lynx SG1 or the single-scanner mapping-grade Lynx MG1.
Visitors can find Teledyne Optech at booth #69 in the exhibition hall.
