The new Polaris Terrestrial Laser Scanner from Teledyne Optech is designed to bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor scanners. It can survey targets up to 1,600 meters away in long-range mode or collect up to 500,000 measurements per second in short-range mode. Its 360-degree-by-120-degree field of view (FOV) captures indoor panoramas from a single site. Its rugged design, light weight and swappable batteries make it field friendly.

The Polaris automatically detects its location with a built-in GNSS receiver and selects the planned survey parameters for the site. Alternatively, operators can set up surveys in the field and resection/backsight the system using the menu-driven GUI on its touchscreen.

The terrestrial laser scanner features an integrated high-resolution camera, inclinometers, compass, GPS receiver and weather-proof housing. Users can select from three possible models: the high-speed TLS-250, the flexible TLS-750, and the long-range TLS-1600. Applications include: civil engineering, construction, transportation, heritage, mining, forensics, forestry and scientific research.
