HawkEye III™ is a combined airborne bathymetric and topographic multi sensor LiDAR system with two bathymetric channels, and one topographic channel. The system provides a full sea-floor search, has no limitation of shallow depths, and delivers a total seamless dataset in the transition zone from sea-bed to land. HawkEye III utilizes Airborne Hydrography AB's unique Oblique LiDAR technology that illuminates objects from multiple angles, minimizing shadowing in the data. Oblique LiDAR is also superior for object detection - on land and in the water.
Chiroptera II™ is an innovative LiDAR system which simultaneously captures the full waveform in both the 35 kHz bathymetric channel and the 500 kHz topographic channel. The system targets the growing need for high accuracy data for environment data and surveying shallow water regions, i.e. survey depth down to 15 meters. The astonishing depth penetration capability K·Dmax=2.2 makes this the ultimate toolf for nearshore and land surveying. The shoreline is seamlessly captured. Included is also the Leica 80 MP RGB camera RCD30.
Airborne Hydrography recently made a new depth record in airborne LiDAR bathymetry with its Chiroptera II system. The record was set during recent customer demonstration surveys in Okinawa, Japan, where complete seafloor coverage was acquired to about 31 m using the Leica AHAB Chiroptera II system. The Chiroptera II system is specified for a typical survey depth down to 15 m (1.5 Secchi depth).
