Lidar uses a laser source to illuminate a subject and sophisticated
sensor technology to analyze the reflected radiation or light
scattered from the subject. This technology is adaptable to
a range of material size, from microscopic particles to large
landmasses, as well as density, from atmospheric gases
to complex compounds.
Thermal imaging is employed in a diverse range of
applications: military and law enforcement for
surveillance, clinical diagnostics for cancer and
disease screening, civil engineering for structural
defects; industrial process control for
non-destructive material testing; and
environmental monitoring for detection
of greenhouse gases, gas leak detection.
