Toronto, Canada, September 30, 2010 — Optech Incorporated, the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced lidar survey instruments, is pleased to announce the release of the new long-range ILRIS-LR 3D laser imaging system.
The ILRIS-LR (Intelligent Laser Ranging and Imaging System-Long Range) has greater range and higher point density capability than any other tripod-based terrestrial scanner currently on the market. The design of the ILRIS-LR now enables surveyors to scan ice, snow and wet surfaces with the proven high accuracy and precision of all ILRIS products.
“We are excited to make this new scanner available to our clients because it enables them to expand their scanning expertise and research into environments that, up until now, presented challenges to terrestrial surveyors. With the new ILRIS-LR, we will see a significant increase in avalanche and glacier studies, along with the traditional geological and mining applications,” says Dave Adams, Optech’s Product Manager.
The ILRIS-LR is the latest addition to the ILRIS family of products, and complements the ILRIS-3D and ILRIS-HD terrestrial laser scanners. There is simply no other scanner on the market that can achieve the range results of the ILRIS-LR while still maintaining a
10-kHz laser repetition rate.
