Teledyne Optech Announces ALTM Galaxy PRIME - 08/02/2018


Teledyne Optech has announced the latest addition to its innovative line of airborne laser terrain mappers, the ALTM Galaxy PRIME which builds on the PulseTRAK and SwathTRAK productivity features of the current Galaxy T1000 sensor platform by adding extended range performance for even greater collection efficiency, improved vegetation penetration, and increased low-reflectance target detection.

An innovative “night mode” increases range performance further still, and an expanded range of motion for the dynamic FOV used by SwathTRAK helps ensure the Galaxy PRIME is the most productive sensor on the market, no matter the type of terrain you survey. Coupled with its compact design, the Galaxy PRIME offers maximum application and platform flexibility.

The Galaxy PRIME lets surveyors use very high laser pulse repetition frequencies to generate data with high point density, even at high altitude and in variable terrain, without complex flight planning. Full 100% point density is maintained across the multipulse transition zones for true data integrity, without having to create artificial filler points through interpolation.

The increase in range performance is as much as 30% over the Galaxy T1000. SwathTRAK technology dynamically adjusts the Galaxy’s scan FOV in real time during data acquisition, enabling constant-width data swaths and constant point density, even in highly variable terrain, effectively enabling you to survey steep mountains as if they were flat. The result is far fewer flightlines to collect and process.

“The Galaxy PRIME raises productivity to an all-new level with select improvements to maximize efficiency and collection confidence even further. Of particular note is our ability to leverage the Galaxy’s extensible sensor platform to enable a cost-effective, direct upgrade path to all our current Galaxy T500 and T1000 owners, thus ensuring their continued competitiveness and success in the market.” said Michael Sitar, Teledyne Optech’s Airborne Business Manager.
