Teledyne Optech expands survey applications at ILMF 2016

Teledyne Optech Lynx data


  • ILMF will feature the North American release of Optech’s newest mobile survey system
  • Optech will also be showing their Galaxy system, as well as the Titan multispectral scanner

Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce that it will be showcasing fresh results from its airborne systems at the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) 2016 on February 22-24 in Denver, CO. This will also be the North American release of the Optech Lynx SG-S mobile survey system.

The Optech Galaxy will showcase the real-world efficiency improvements it achieves using its patent-pending SwathTRAK™ technology to automatically adjust the field of view in high-relief terrain. The Teledyne Optech stand will have data from a recent Galaxy survey in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, where SwathTRAK reduced the number of flightlines required by 40% compared to fixed-FOV lidars.

The award-winning multispectral Optech Titan is also empowering surveyors to change their business models by opening up new applications. With the Titan’s green and infrared laser channels, operators can bridge the gap between topographic and bathymetric mapping with the same sensor, and get into automated land classification by measuring the relative intensity of returns for each wavelength. Stand 54 will have examples of both of these applications, including a survey from Ontario’s Georgian Bay where the Titan exceeded its predicted depth penetration capabilities, and new classification approaches that offer improved results from Teledyne Optech’s scientific partners.

ILMF will see the North American release of Teledyne Optech’s latest mobile lidar system, the Optech Lynx SG-S. This system joins our mobile lineup at an attractive price point between the Lynx MG and SG models, with the ability to collect survey-grade 3D data from a lightweight and compact platform. Visitors can hear how clients in England and the United States have executed large projects using the Lynx to collect dense, survey-grade data at highway speeds and process it accurately with the highly automated Optech LMS Pro workflow.

Catch our Pre-Conference Product Preview on February 22 at 11 am at the Mineral Hall A-C and our participation in a discussion on Current and Coming Innovations in Linear Lidar Technology on February 23, 9.15–10 am at Mineral Hall A-G.

Find out more at, or at stand 54 on the ILMF exhibition floor.
