Teledyne Technologies companies Teledyne Optech and Teledyne CARIS have launched CZMIL SuperNova for maximum depth penetration and superior coverage in turbid waters.

CZMIL SuperNova product manager, Jennifer Aitken, explained: “CZMIL SuperNova builds on over 30 years of experience with airborne green laser bathymetry. The ability to configure the system on-the-fly and optimize data collection for local conditions has significant benefit. We are getting plenty of signal at 600 meters altitude and even higher, so our coverage area is increasing without sacrificing depth penetration.”

Introducing SmartSpacing technology for even and efficient point spacing, real-time processing capability for reduced post-processing time and configurable modes for maximizing performance in different water environments, the SuperNova provides a wide range of inputs for climate change modelling and is Ideal for inland water environments, base mapping for coastal zones and shoreline.

Data is processed in CARIS BASE Editor software and leverages AI based techniques for land / water discrimination and noise classification. The CARIS processing tools open the door to a full 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.
