Digital Aerial Solutions (DAS) Enters LiDAR Market
with Leica Geosystems’ALS60 LiDAR Sensor
With the purchase of the ALS60, DAS will complement and support it's current airborne image solutions, and provide new business opportunities with local, state, and federal government clients.
(Norcross, Ga., 14 Feb. 2010) Leica Geosystems’ six-year relationship with Digital Aerial Solutions (DAS), a full-service commercial provider of digital aerial imagery and geospatial products, was further strengthened by DAS' purchase of Leica Geosystems’ ALS60 airborne LiDAR scanner, the company’s third-generation LiDAR (light detection and ranging) system.
Already an avid Leica ADS40 digital airborne user, the new Leica ALS60 technology complements DAS’ existing aerial imaging capabilities to provide an efficient and cost-effective means to acquire accurate, terrain elevation data and create high-resolution digital terrain models (DTMs), digital elevation models (DEMs) and topographical map products for a variety of project applications.
DAS Doubles It's Capacity with the Purchase of Second ADS40
DAS took delivery in early July 2005 of its second ADS40 purchased from Leica Geosystems. This now doubles the data collection capacity of DAS and provides the redundancy of having two ADS40 systems. Production capacity has been increased in order to keep pace with the two ADS40's, and DAS has also purchased a state-of-the-art High Performance Distributed Computing Image Processing System (HPDCIPS) that enhances an already proven digital end to end production workflow solution. The introduction of the High Performance Distributed Computing Image Processing System (HPDCIPS) to the production environment enables the technical staff to successfully manage the large datasets acquired by the two digital sensors.
