The Next Imaging Frontier

gelharThe lead story in this week’s Lidar News Today eNewsletter written by Brent Gelhar is a must read. This important document provides a wealth of information on the latest developments in remote sensing platforms. From UAS and Geiger Mode to Google’s Project Loon and low earth orbit satellites. Brent believes that we could be entering a new era in the remote sensing of our planet and there are a lot of big players making some large bets in this area.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder commented their autonomous drone project, “We’ve successfully tested a new laser that can transmit data at 10 gigabits per second. That’s ten times faster than any previous system, and it can accurately connect with a point the size of a dime from more than 10 miles away.”

Amazing – better hang on to the rocket.

    Things have come a very long way since I studied remote sensing at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz County, CA and Rowan University of New Jersey. I had fun with satellite imaging and aerial photography and used my knowledge, and skills in the land surveying and civil engineering professions. This is why I signed up for LiDAR news.

    Thank you very much.
