Downed Power Lines Could Be Prevented With The Help of a TruPulse 360

by mphippen 13. February 2015 13:48

Laser Technology and its line of laser rangefinders such as the rugged, compact, waterproof TruPulse 360R and 200X have quickly become an integral part of Professional Measurement's arsenal worldwide. There's an old adage that's been passed from one generation to the next, and honestly I don't have an idea as to its origin, but I'm certain your father said it many times. "Measure twice, cut once…" is how I remember it. My take on this is that preparation and double checking will prevent having to do it over or even averting catastrophe! More...

TruPulse 360 Makes Calculating Stockpile Inventories Cost Effective

by mphippen 6. November 2013 14:09

In an article featured in 'Aggregates Manager' Brooke Wisdom discussed 3D mobile laser scanning for calculating volumes of stockpile inventories . Describing material stockpile inventory as a "necessary evil" for accounting, he laments the fact valuable resources and time are expended to keep track of ever changing stockpile volumes. Ignoring less expensive solutions like TruPulse 360 w/MapSmart Volume software, the article praised laser 3D scanning as the most accurate method for determining volumes largely comparing 3D laser scanning with aerial photogrammetry methods.

NASA Custom-Built Proximity Laser In Action Today...

As of this writing, the International Space Station (ISS) has been in low orbit over the earth for 5,449 days, 7 hours, 31 minutes, and 58 seconds…and counting! You may recall from one of our earlier blogs that in 1993 Laser Technology was approached by NASA. They needed a custom-built close proximity laser that could measure both distances and speeds for their space docking missions. LTI was awarded the contract and began engineering and designing the laser needed to accommodate NASA. More...

Vegetation Management Made Easy with the TruPulse 360

by mphippen 2. August 2013 14:15

We in Colorado and the other Rocky Mountain states are privileged to live in or near vast areas of forested land with breathtaking views. As you've no doubt heard Colorado is experiencing a number of wild fires burning out of control. In particular the "Black Forest" fire near Colorado Springs has consumed over 22 square miles destroying over 500 homes killing two as of this writing. Ongoing drought conditions and high temperatures make our forests a tinder box for dry lightning strikes and other natural forms of ignition keeping state fire fighters on edge. Natural causes is one thing, but allowing encroaching vegetation to compromise clearance areas next to high voltage power lines is altogether another story! More...
