TORONTO, Aug. 13, 2014—Optech is pleased to announce the commissioning of a second high-precision Optech airborne sensor for PT. Karvak Nusa Geomatika this week in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The Optech Orion M sensor joins the Optech Gemini that PT. Karvak has been deploying in Indonesia for the past two years. According to Mr. Sofan Prihadi, Technical Director at PT. Karvak, “Having a second sensor that shares many common features and processing workflows is desirable, but it is also important for PT. Karvak to have the high level of hardware and software support that Optech provides, regardless of the sensor location. This expansion of the excellent relationship between PT. Karvak and Optech is a result of the high level of cooperation and trust that has evolved in the past few years.”
PT. Karvak enjoyed considerable success with their initial Optech lidar systems, confirmed by their recent award of an airborne lidar/mapping project in excess of USD $10 million in a neighboring country. As the project ramps up, both the Optech Gemini and Orion sensors will be mobilized for the acquisition of high-precision 3D data.
“We are naturally delighted with PT. Karvak’s decision to procure another sensor from Optech,” said Mr. Wayne Szameitat, International Sales Manager for Optech. “This not only indicates the efficiency and practical accomplishments of Optech systems, but also points to the important role that airborne lidar is playing in Indonesia and Asia Pacific as a whole.”
