Single Photon LIDAR: Why Not See the Forest AND the Trees?

A webinar of interest Single Photon LIDAR: Why Not See the Forest AND the Trees?

In stark contrast to the linear-mode LIDAR sensors available on the commercial market, single photon sensitive sensors offer multiple advantages for customers seeking cost-effective collection of wide area elevation data. Conventional linear-mode sensors require detection of hundreds to thousands of photons per range measurement. This approach dictates that the transmitted laser energy be concentrated into a single beam and limits the sensor to flight at low altitudes. Across a required collection area, the compromised aerial coverage due to inefficient use of aircraft time and employee resources results in significant costs incurred by the customer.

The collection speed, resolution, and seamless coverage enabled by SPL technology has shifted the price point of LIDAR acquisitions.

Sit in with LIDAR Magazine and Dr. Steven E. Mitchell, Director of Mechanical Engineering at Sigma Space Corporation for an engaging discussion on how Single Photon LIDAR sensors are impacting the marketplace.
