Toronto, Canada – Optech Incorporated, a manufacturer of advanced lidar survey instruments, announced today that Quebec City-based Groupe Alta has added an Optech ALTM Gemini to their remote sensing toolkit. The system was delivered and put into operation in April 2008. The Gemini’s high-altitude capabilities and multipulse operation mode are features that will greatly benefit Groupe Alta in upcoming projects.

“We are very pleased that Groupe ALTA selected Optech to be their lidar provider of choice for their expansion in this area,” said Don Carswell, President of Optech. “The global scope of their lidar projects will provide new and interesting results which will help extend the limits of what is possible with lidar technology.”

Benoît Raymond, Groupe Alta President and CEO comments; “We are thrilled to integrate lidar capacity into our service offering. Our clientele will be able to benefit from the latest, state-of-theart technology available on the market today. We are very enthusiastic to work in collaboration with Optech to develop this emerging market and look forward to a long-lasting partnership between our respective organizations.”

Both companies, as leaders in their respective fields, will work together to further develop lidar technology and its myriad applications in the field of remote sensing.
