Toronto, Canada - Optech Incorporated, the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced lidar survey instruments, is pleased to announce the Pegasus - a new member of the Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) product family. Designed as a technology platform that fully exploits application niches, Pegasus is positioned to take lidar mapping to the next level.

“We are very excited to offer to the professional surveying community a new airborne lidar technology”, said Don Carswell, President of Optech. “The industry looks to Optech as a pioneer in lidar technology to develop new mapping sensor capabilities. The ALTM Pegasus embodies this innovation heritage with a unique platform architecture and unprecedented data collection capability.”
