Optech Announces Next-Generation ILRIS-3D Laser Scanner 10.20.04

October 20, 2004
Optech Incorporated announced its next generation ILRIS-3D Intelligent Laser Ranging and Imaging System. The new ILRIS-3D offers many enhanced features, including an integrated 6 megapixel digital camera, automated truecolor point clouds, increased accuracy and improved user friendliness. In addition, a new integrated handle allows users to mount a GPS antenna, external digital camera or spectral imaging systems to the unit. The scanner automatically uses the data provided by the external sensors to enhance the quality of the point cloud.

Externally available USB 2.0 and serial ports provide greater data storage flexibility while protecting the portability and user-friendliness that drives the ILRIS-3D design philosophy. Optech developed the new ILRIS-3D after extensive feedback from its users and careful market research, and the result is a system that builds on the versatility provided by the currently well-established generation of ILRIS-3D.

With a dynamic scanning range of 3 m to beyond 1,000 m, a minimum scan step size of 0.00115 degrees and Class 1 laser eyesafety designation in all operating conditions, Optech Incorporated continues to provide its users with the most versatile LiDAR scanner in its class.
