Toronto, June 18, 2013—Optech, the world leader in the development, manufacture and support of advanced lidar and camera survey instruments, is pleased to announce the imminent release of the Lynx SG1 Mobile Mapper™ (Survey Grade), which replaces the Lynx M1 as the flagship model of Optech’s mobile product line. Lynx SG1, a 600-kHz dual sensor head system, raises the bar for mobile surveying by collecting up to 1.2 million measurements per second at survey-grade precision, spread over an unobstructed 360° field of view with industry-leading scanner speeds for even point distribution. The ability to control several integrated cameras, including the Point Grey Ladybug®, adds further value to a system that is already considered the premium choice for mobile surveys where accuracy, precision and resolution are critical.
“The Lynx SG1 system builds on what we achieved with the Lynx M1,” says Albert Iavarone, Business Unit Manager at Optech. “We are confident that users will agree that it provides the best overall return on investment in the industry.”
The Lynx SG1 system is expected to be available for delivery at the end of June in conjunction with Optech’s Third Imaging and Lidar Solutions Conference, being held in Toronto, Canada on June 25-27. ILSC 2013 is an open forum where current and prospective users of Optech products, along with other industry professionals, can discuss best practices and explore practical “real-world” lidar and camera solutions.
