Leica Geosystems introduces its next generation of airborne LiDAR solutions, the Leica ALS80. By incorporating advanced laser technology, new high-speed point cloud generation and viewing software, faster acquisition and processing time and their related cost savings are now possible. Users benefit from the new Leica ALS80-CM and ALS80-HP systems’ expanded Multiple Pulse in Air (MPiA) capabilities and a new scanning geometry that offers industry-leading pulse rates of up to 1.0 MHz. This technology greatly expands pulse rate capability throughout the entire range of flying heights, allowing faster collection rates and shorter flight times. For users operating in mountainous terrain, the Leica ALS80-HA offers significantly increased pulse rates during high-altitude operation.
