June 23, 2015 — Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the 2015 Imaging and Lidar Solutions Conference (ILSC) on Friday, June 12. Visitors from across the globe came together in Toronto to share ideas, learn about Teledyne Optech technology and hear keynote speeches on rocket science and UAV challenges from Dr. Mark Whorton and Lewis Graham.
The amazing ILSC 2015 presentations offered insight into best practices and innovative applications leveraged by Teledyne Optech sensors. Industry leaders Applanix, Terrasolid, Certainty 3D, Gexcel, Merrick and Orbit GT gave workshops showcasing their latest developments, while Applied Imagery, Blue Marble, geo-konzept, ITRES and SOMAG AG Jena presented case studies. “We gained a lot from the conference with great interaction with key Optech personnel and other users,” said Steve Laming, Managing Director of Aerial Surveys Ltd in New Zealand. “There is certainly enhanced benefit with more users at the conference.” SPAR 3D editor Sean Higgins was also there: See Sean’s blog here.
ILSC 2015 introduced attendees to several recent technologies, such as the Optech Cavity Monitoring System (CMS) V500 with its integrated camera, details about how the impossible was solved to create the Optech Galaxy and its PulseTRAK™ technology with a continuous operating envelope, and information about combining Optech ILRIS and Optech Lynx with other sensors, including the new UAV or a Teledyne RESON sonar. Lynx users were introduced to new capabilities to improve efficiencies for the execution of high-accuracy projects and the improved utilization of control networks, while airborne users learned of new efficiencies and a deep integration of camera and lidar workflows into Teledyne Optech’s airborne platforms. Attendees also previewed the next generations of Optech Flight Management Suite (FMS) and Optech Lidar Mapping Suite (LMS), and provided input on the features they would like to see. Finally, the new Optech CZMIL Nova and its highly successful rental program also attracted great interest, with recent results revealing unprecedented turbid water performance beyond initial expectations and exceeding other bathymetric sensors on the market.
“We are quite excited by the response to the Optech Titan multispectral lidar and the novel ideas for using it in asset classification, forest and environment mapping, and tree species identification,” said Don Carswell, President of Teledyne Optech. “I was proud to present our solutions to the impossible alongside presentations from industry leaders and respected researchers.” One of the presenters on multispectral lidar, Prof. Benoît St-Onge Ph.D. of the University of Quebec, agreed saying, “The Optech conference was in many aspects quite fascinating! It was truly helpful for me.”
Teledyne Optech thanks all the speakers, attendees, exhibitors and sponsors who made ILSC 2015 such a success, and hopes to see everyone back again next time for even more exciting new developments. Find out more at www.teledyneoptech.com.
