What is Global Shutter Flash LiDAR?

Global Shutter Flash (GSF) LIDAR is the 3D imaging / ranging sensor modality of choice for real time digital elevation mapping, relative navigation guidance, domain awareness, tracking, and augmented reality applications. ASC’s  proprietary time-of-flight focal plane array, pulse laser, and digital signal processing technologies enable high performance, rugged, reliable, and low SWaP GSF LIDAR sensors generate3D-point clouds map at video rates.

Global Shutter Flash LIDAR Advantages

  • No Motion Distortion: Global shutter sampling

  • No Spatial Data Gaps: Contiguous two dimensional pixel coverage

  • Excellent Range Accuracy: ~5cm

  • Real Time Organized Point Clouds: All points are correlated in space and time

  • Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) Capable: Image / range through obscurants such as smoke, dust, fog, rain and snow

  • High Reliability: Solid state, no moving parts
