Originally developed for helicopter landings in brownout conditions, the OPAL™ LiDAR scanners are designed to perform in extreme physical environments and to penetrate through obscurants such as dust, rain, fog, and smoke.
Mounted on an airframe, OPAL™ LiDAR provides a 3D map of the surrounding environment to aid in manned and unmanned operations. Even in near zero-visibility, obstacles on the ground as well as overhead wires are accurately rendered to ensure safe landings and flight navigation.
Improve the efficiency of day-to-day operations through continuous monitoring and management of stockpile inventories. A fixed installation solution, OPAL™ 3D LiDAR and Neptec Technologies’ 3DRi™ Stockpiles solution accurately scans and reports volumes of stockpiled material during the day or night and in all environmental conditions with no manual intervention required.
Up-to-date volume data, or a series of volume measurements at predefined intervals, show inventory levels and how they fluctuate over a period of days, weeks, or months for improved control and accountability.
The OPAL™ 3D LiDAR sensor systems are ideally suited to provide vital situational awareness information to ships equipped with sophisticated navigational aids for vessel positioning and perimeter security against potential threats at sea.
The OPAL™ LiDAR is capable of detecting small maritime targets and may be easily integrated with other sensor technologies such as maritime radar and camera systems.
Busy commercial airports rely on the latest in technology and innovation to enhance operational efficiency and the safety of passengers. OPAL™ 3D LiDAR’s extended range and data density enable monitoring and tracking of aircraft and vehicles on runways, taxiways, and at the aircraft gate.
Combining LiDAR technology with existing ASDE-radar and visible and infrared spectrum camera systems provides for a comprehensive and reliable 3D perception solution for manned or remote tower airport locations.
The dust-penetrating and ruggedized OPAL™ 3D scanners are specifically designed for harsh, vibration, and shock intense environments, and can be installed on mining equipment without requiring special air-conditioned or heated enclosures.
Whether operating as a perception solution for autonomous equipment operation or as a means to generate real-time 3D data for various applications, Neptec’s 3DRi™ software technology can be used to extract useful information directly on equipment without the need for manual post-processing of the data back at the office.
OPAL™ 3D LiDAR scanners are designed to operate and perform in adverse conditions often present in the Oil and Gas Industry. Heavy industries demand reliable and dependable equipment and systems for many critical operations required on site.
Some of the innovative applications where the OPAL’s real-time 3D imaging and processing can assist include robotic drilling equipment, remote pipeline corridor inspection, or subsea robotic perception systems.
Neptec Technologies has developed partnerships with construction industry leaders to develop a cutting edge site monitoring system that improves site efficiency and the safety of workers in the field.
The OPAL™ 3D LiDAR is designed to continuously monitor and report on the status of the site and complements the inspection process to ensure adherence to construction standards for quality and safety.
OPAL™ LiDAR’s long range capabilities coupled with obscurant penetration make it an excellent choice for applications on fast moving platforms such as transport trucks, trains, and other mobile vehicles.
The unique, non-overlapping laser scan pattern, emitted by the OPAL™, ensures high data density of points when the vehicle is in motion or when stationary; a feature unique to the OPAL™ family of 3D LiDARs.
OPAL™ 3D LiDAR scanners and 3DRi™ software are uniquely suited for automatic intrusion detection and identification at facilities such as airports, nuclear power plants, and other high-value locations for safety and security. The detection system operates 24X7 day or night in all types of inclement weather and requires little to no maintenance. Types of intrusion include persons, ground vehicles, or aerial conveyance such as drones or UAVs.
