OPAL™ is a family of rugged, multi-purpose 3D laser scanners specifically designed for real-time applications in harsh environments. They incorporate Neptec’s patented obscurant-penetrating LiDAR technology (OPAL™ – Obscurant-Penetrating Auto-synchronous LiDAR) and are designed to operate in harsh environments where they may be subjected to significant amounts of dust, vibration, shock, and wide operating temperature ranges. The scanners can be mounted outdoors on permanent structures (e.g. towers, poles etc.) or heavy machines (like haul trucks, excavators, stacker/reclaimers, ship loaders, etc.) and do not require any special enclosures, heaters or air-conditioning.
