TigerCub 3D Flash LIDAR™ with Zephyr Laser Camera

The TigerCub 3D Flash LIDAR Camera™ is a lightweight (< 3lbs), small form-factor (11x10x12cm) integrated 3D camera, capable of capturing a full array of 128x128 of independently triggered pixels per each frame allowing 16,300 3D individual range and intensity points to be generated up to 20 frames per second as 3D point cloud images or video streams per laser pulse (frame) in real-time. The 3D data output is used to provide autonomous (e.g. rendezvous, proximity, landing, etc.) operations or assist man-in-the loop imaging. ASC’s 3D focal plane array and laser technologies have been tested and used in a wide range of applications and enjoy a rich heritage of success. The on-board processing in all ASC 3D cameras allows for streaming 3D point cloud and intensity output as well as camera telemetry.
