Network Mapping Purchases New Optech Corridor Mapping Solution

March 11, 2009 --  Toronto, Canada – Optech Incorporated is pleased to announce that Network Mapping, a leading specialist in corridor surveying, has just purchased their second ALTM (Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper).  Their second ALTM also happens to be one of Optech’s new corridor mapping systems, the ALTM Orion C200, based on the highly acclaimed Orion platform.


Ideally suited for smaller aircraft with minimal payload and power capability, the ALTM Orion C200 incorporates an eye-safe, 1.5 micron high-precision laser with an effective repetition rate of 200 kHz, and a variable field of view for those requiring maximum available density in a robust and flexible package.  Standard design features include variable roll compensation, plug-and-play ports for integrated imaging sensor options, and real-time GPS differential correction capability. A streamlined Flight Management System with fully integrated peripheral sensor planning and control capability enables in-air mission planning and graphical real-time data coverage estimation for increased collection confidence. An unmanned, remotely-operated version is also available for non-commercial requirements.

Network Mapping's Chairman, David Langworth, said "we are very excited about this all-new corridor mapping solution from Optech and we are looking forward to applying their leading-edge technology on behalf of our clients worldwide.  Network Mapping envisions that the performance of this system, with its fully integrated peripheral imaging devices and very high, programmable density capability, will revolutionize corridor mapping, as well as introduce a step change in the modeling of vegetation.  This is of particular interest to our electricity network clients”.

“Optech is very pleased to once again pioneer new advances in the airborne mapping industry. This is further enabled with the support and input of our existing clients, such as Network Mapping, who recognize the value of our technology to their business success,” commented Brent Gelhar, Vice President, Sales and Product Strategy. “The Orion C-Series represents a key tool in the evolving needs of airborne data collection providers.”
