April 13, 2010 -- The newly released Leica FCMS Flight and Sensor Control Management System Version 3.22 now also supports the new WDM65 Full Waveform Digitizer for Leica ALS60 and Leica ALS50-II systems, allowing highly automated LIDAR waveform data collection during the flight.
In addition to automatically triggering data recording during the flight line, Leica FCMS 3.22 allows all key LIDAR system settings (FOV, scan rate, pulse rate, range gate settings) to be passed from the FPES Flight Planning and Evaluation Software directly to the system. This facilitates automated system setup for data recording and easily accommodates different system settings for each flight line.
Leica FCMS 3.22 also allows straightforward manual operation and diagnostic messages during data acquisition are now accessible directly on to the operator screen, without the need to access several screen views.
