Welcome to Neptec Technologies

We develop intelligent 3D sensor-driven robotics applications for harsh environments that improve the safety, productivity and cost-effectiveness of our customer’s operations. We use our industry-unique and patented 3D Real-time intelligence (3DRi™) sensor and software technologies to solve real-world automation problems in industries like mining, oil and gas, heavy civil construction, aerospace or anywhere intelligent 3D can help automate complex or dangerous tasks. Our customers include global mining, defence, and aerospace companies and distribution partners like Trimble.

We develop, supply and integrate intelligent 3D-sensor based operator-assist and automation solutions. Our solutions use our family of obscurant-penetrating OPAL™ 3D LiDAR sensors specially designed for harsh environments, and a proprietary 3DRi™ Software Development Kit (SDK) with a library of software algorithms and functionality to extract actionable information for 3D sensors data in real-time. The 3DRi SDK includes an API and out-of-the-box features like automatic change detection, object recognition, object tracking and automatic scan alignment. Our OPAL™ and 3DRI™ SDK can be very easily integrated into automation applications for harsh environments.

Founded in 2011, Neptec Technologies is a spin-out of Neptec Design Group Ltd, an award-winning technology innovator for the Space market and NASA Prime Contractor. We are located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
