About Leica Geosystems part of Hexagon

Superior Airborne Bathymetric Lidar Sensor 

Leica Geosystems’ airborne bathymetric sensor Leica Chiroptera-5 combines topographic and bathymetric Lidar channels with a four-band camera to deliver seamless data from water to land. The system provides 40% higher point density, a 20% increase in water depth penetration and improved topographic sensitivity compared to previous generations. The high-performance airborne sensor delivers detailed Lidar data of submerged terrain and objects and supports numerous applications, such as nautical charting, erosion risk assessment, environmental monitoring and seabed classification.

Increased Productivity 

The superior sensor performance of the Leica Chiroptera-5 allows to collect more data and capture larger areas with greater detail. The system is designed to address the growing need to collect high-accuracy data for environmental monitoring and surveying of shallow-water regions. Combined with the Leica HawkEye deep bathymetric module, Chiroptera-5 offers unmatched capabilities in deep waters, covering the full bathymetric range. 

High-performance Processing Workflow 

The LSS end-to-end data processing workflow provides full waveform analysis and automatic calibration, refraction correction and turbid water enhancement. The workflow offers near real-time data processing, enabling coverage analysis immediately after landing and allowing operators to QC the data quickly before demobilizing the system.
