Information from Teledyne Technologies
Teledyne Optech has launched its third generation CZMIL (coastal zone mapping and imaging lidar), the CZMIL SuperNova, powered by Teledyne CARIS processing software for creation of seamless topo/bathy data products.
The system is equipped with a green laser for depth penetration up to 75 meters. Its SmartSpacing technology allows even and efficient point spacing, real-time processing capability for reduced post-processing time and configurable modes for maximising performance in different water environments.
SuperNova can be programmed to perform in a wide range of environments, from topographic and inland waterways to shoreline, coral reefs and deep-water marine applications. Full waveform capture of land and water allows a variety of data products beyond elevation and depth, such as object detection, water clarity maps, seafloor reflectance and vegetation maps (both on land and submerged).
Data is processed in CARIS Base Editor software, which leverages AI based techniques for land and water discrimination and noise classification. The processing tools open the door to a range of processing options from datum shifts to full waveform display and editing, to the creation of enhanced information products in a wide variety of formats.
