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 AHAB'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.
LiDAR Survey Studio Software™ is a state of the art software tool for point-cloud generation and cleaning of raw LiDAR data acquired by the HawkEye, Chiroptera and DragonEye systems.
LiDAR Survey Studio provides an extensive software toolbox for processing of multiple missions and simultaneous review of data from all sensor channels. This allows review of the deep bathymetry, the shallow and the topographic LiDAR data, all at the same time including reviewing the image taken at the same location as the point cloud data.
Leica Geosystems strengthens its market position in airborne surveying through Hexagon’s acquisition of Airborne Hydrography AB (AHAB), a provider of airborne laser survey systems for hydrographic and topographic surveys.
