LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth.

This survey method measures distance to a target by illuminating the target with pulsed laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target.

In addition to physically accurate IR and Radar sensors, Presagis is forging ahead with Ondulus and working on LiDAR and Leddar frameworks that will allow users to model any specific piece of equipment.
