Global shutter flash LIDAR (gsf-LIDAR) is the real time 3D imaging / ranging sensor modality of choice for digital elevation mapping, relative navigation, domain awareness, object tracking, sensor fusion and augmented reality applications. Gsf-LIDAR is a true solid state, non-scanning, time of flight (ToF) based 3D imaging technology that provides motion distortion-free, organized point clouds at video rates. Each data point is four dimensional, composed of a set of relative azimuth angle, relative elevation angle, distance, and intensity values which are updated at the end of each frame period. with each data point and updated at the end of each frame. Range gating allows the sensor to image / range through obscurants such as dust, fog, rain, and snow. Gsf-LIDAR sensors are compact, lightweight, and durable and suitable for a wide range of space, airborne, terrestrial, and marine applications.
Advanced Scientific Concepts LLC (ASC) invented the first focal plane array based global shutter flash LIDAR (gsf-LIDAR) sensor. Subsequently, ASC has developed gsf-LIDAR 3D video camera solutions for a wide variety of applications ranging from space to autonomous vehicle. Our dedicated team of engineering, manufacturing, and business professionals are committed to best-in-class gsf-LIDAR products for the space, military, manned airborne, and in / through water markets.
