Leica CountryMapper Hybrid Airborne Sensor

The world’s first hybrid imaging & LiDAR system for large-area airborne mapping

Hexagon, represented by its divisions Geosystems, PPM & Geospatial and its brands IDS GeoRadar, Leica Geosystems, Listech, Microsurvey, Multivista, Bricsys, SMART Build, Luciad and many more will present at INTERGEO 17 – 19 September in Stuttgart, Germany.

Visit Hall 1, Booth B1.022 to experience Hexagon’s solutions for the geospatial and construction industries.


Technologies at INTERGEO

At Hall 1, Booth B1.022, discover the latest technology for mobile mapping; asset collection and management; 3D laser scanning; photogrammetry; remote sensing; airborne sensors and UAVs; GNSS; construction project controls and progress documentation; utility detection; measurement software; cloud-based dynamic map; and many more solutions for the geospatial and construction industries. The latest innovations will be on display for hands-on demos and experts will be ready to answer any questions. Solutions featured at the booth include:

High-resolution camera

With over 31,000 pixels across the swath, the camera system provides superior collection efficiency for large-area coverage. CMOS-based Leica MFC150 camera modules leverage true mechanical forward-motion-compensation (FMC) to deliver industry leading image quality, even at faster aircraft speeds and in challenging lighting conditions.

Full performance LiDAR unit

The CountryMapper features the new Hyperion3 LiDAR unit that, with a 60 degrees field of view, significantly improves the performance and flexibility of the system compared to previous generations. Operating at a pulse rate of 2 MHz, the LiDAR module provides reduced laser divergence, enabling greater planimetric accuracy and better foliage penetration.

Foundational Geospatial Data

The sensor enables simultaneous collection of aerial images, LiDAR point clouds, DSM and DTM in just one flight. Matching camera and LiDAR modules provide superior geometric and temporal data consistency to support applications such as orthophoto generation, terrain mapping, hydrography, forestry monitoring and infrastructure management.
