ASTRALiTe Debuts UAV-based Topo-Bathy LiDAR
ASTRALiTe LiDAR demonstrated its scanning 2-in-1 Topo-Bathy LiDAR system from a UAV platform in conjunction with PrecisionHawk. The system produces high-resolution bathymetric imagery, enabling and improving mapping capability for underwater infrastructure inspection, military logistics, natural disaster assessment and recovery, risk assessment for industrial retention ponds, and water resource management, according to the manufacturer. ASTRALiTe LiDAR provides measurements of water depth with 1-centimeter depth resolution. Additionally, its patented technology enables the detection of objects with precision, mapping the transition from land to water, and determining the depth from shallow to deeper waters.
