New results from Optech Titan field tests

New results from Optech Titan field tests at AGU Fall Meeting

December 8, 2015Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce our participation at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco on December 14-18. Feel free to stop by exhibit booth #1206 and check out our display at the Poster Session from 1:40 to 6:00 pm in the Poster Hall. Here you will hear about some of the latest successes of the Optech Titan multispectral lidar for target classification and shallow-water bathymetry.

The poster presentation titled “New, Flexible Applications with the Multispectral Titan Airborne Lidar” (# EP23A-0940) will showcase some exciting new developments for the Titan. This includes a new pixel-based approach to target classification, which uses Titan’s three laser channels to divide targets into four classes (buildings, trees, roads and grass) with 94% accuracy. The Titan’s bathymetry performance has also met and exceeded its predicted depth penetration in clear water, with field tests in Canada showing depth measurements down to 23 m below the water surface. These results break open new applications for multispectral airborne lidars, including coastal/inland water mapping, environmental modeling, and natural resource management.
