Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) is extremely useful in the collection of science data and military intelligence as it supports 3D precision mapping, high accuracy, fast acquisition and processing, weather and light independence, and canopy penetration—all with minimal human dependence. At the forefront of today’s environmental monitoring challenges, SDL is developing new technologies and techniques to leverage LIDAR systems for advanced scientific field work and military intelligence.
