by Admin Beamagine in News

Beamagine and Lidax are developing a new Lidar system for the European Space Agency (ESA) to be used in orbital operations. The development of this Lidar is a national strategic initiative supported by the Center for Industrial Technological Development of Spain (CDTI), whose results are expected by the end of 2022. In its first stage of development, Beamagine’s technology,components and subsystems will undergo validaton under mechanical, thermal and radiation tests. This compact Lidar sensor will allow measuring distances without contact in a range from one to 300 meters, obtaining a cloud of 3D points in real-time, thanks to the scanning system utilised whihch does not involve moving parts or mechanisms.
