Kremmling, CO Demo with USGS
ASTRALiTe recently conducted a demonstration in conjunction with the US Geological Survey (USGS) in Kremmling CO at the high-elevation confluence of the Colorado and Blue rivers. Four flights were conducted with flight times ranging between 10 - 12 min. River transects were made to document volume flow of the two rivers including depth profiles, vegetation mapping, and underwater object detection.

MANTAS II with Applied Research Lab, HI
The ASTRALiTe Lidar made measurements from a DJI Matrice 600 Pro UAV during the Applied Research Lab (ARL) MANTAS II Tech Demo at the University of Hawaii’s Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) on Coconut Island in October of 2018.
A special feature of the demo was measurement of underwater coral reef structures at centimeter-level depth resolution. Over a series of three days the ASTRALiTe LiDAR was successfully flown on the windward side of the island in conditions that included salt spray and significant surf, collecting dune, inlet and lagoon profiles, and near-shore bathymetry.
A total of seven flights were conducted, the longest being 17 min. The ASTRALiTe Lidar has its own battery power, enabling the UAV to fly for longer on its own battery.
ASTRALiTe is constantly making new advancements in bathymetric surveying capabilities. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on our developments.
