The OPAL™ 3D LiDAR is designed to operate on mobile or fixed applications in real-time and under extreme conditions. Neptec Technologies’ OPAL™ LiDAR and 3DRi™ systems are currently in operation at sites across multiple industries and are being used in applications ranging from autonomous and unmanned navigation, automation and collision avoidance, to object detection at short and long range, and asset tracking.
The OPAL™ 3D LiDAR sensor systems are ideally suited for marine environments and are able to provide vital situational awareness information to ships, to assist with unmanned or autonomous navigation for vessel positioning and collision avoidance.
The OPAL™ LiDAR is capable of detecting small maritime targets in real-time and is ideal for sensor fusion with 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 long range capability 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.
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.
As the OPAL™ and 3DRi architecture is very flexible, Neptec Technologies offers customized scanner performance and packaging to meet your specific application requirements.
OPAL™ LiDAR provides a number of unique and important capabilities that improve automation of several port and waterway processes including ship loading and unloading, cargo handling, and Waterway System Automation and Control (Locks, Bridges, Gates, Arrestors). The OPAL™ LiDAR can also assist in monitoring valuable assets against incursions, collisions or theft.
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.
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.
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 Technologies 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.
Neptec Technologies is focused on providing value-added solutions to solve many real-world problems faced by our clients today. Neptec Technologies proprietary 3DRi™ software development toolkit (SDK) is made up of building blocks of algorithms that simplify the processing of large 3D point cloud data and enable rapid application development. Wherever 3D perception systems for robotic and autonomous systems are required, Neptec Technologies can provide a timely, customized solution.
