Polaris

The Optech Polaris delivers accurate, precise data faster than ever before, bridging the gap between small, light-weight, short-range sensors and large, long-range, pulsed time-of-flight scanners. Built with surveyors in mind, the Polaris TLS has a user-friendly onboard operator interface with menu-driven operations, plus all the built-in features needed for quickly collecting and referencing data.

Description

With a powerful quad-core processor, an integrated high-resolution camera, a digital compass and inclinometer, an L1 GNSS receiver and weather-proof housing, the Polaris can be deployed in various environments for a wide range of applications, using different workflows and setups.
The Polaris leads the market in price versus performance, starting at a price that rivals short-range scanners while outperforming long-range scanners. With accelerated performance and all the built-in features surveyors need, the Polaris offers more flexibility than ever before.

Whether on a tripod, vehicle, or moving platform, the outstanding performance of the Polaris makes it the most versatile and efficient terrestrial laser scanner on the market.
