DragonEye 3D Flash LIDAR Space Camera Ready To Launch

Advanced Scientific Concepts' New Imaging System Tested On STS-133

A lightweight, small form factor DragonEye integrated 3D FLC (Flash LIDAR Camera) is now ready to launch aboard upcoming space explorations, according to Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC). Designed especially for Automated Rendezvous and Docking (AR&D) and On-orbit Satellite Servicing (OSS), it was most recently tested on the STS-133 Discovery in February 2011 and has been listed as Technical Readiness Level (TRL) of 8.

Capable of capturing a full array of 128x128 independently triggered 3D range pixels per frame up to 30 frames per second in real-time, DragonEye is the first 3D FLC in space.  The non-mechanical DragonEye boasts ASC's leading-edge technology advantages, including its Class I eye-safe lasers for illumination, real-time imaging without motion distortion to provide real-time input for guidance, navigation and control (GNC) systems.

"The DragonEye 3D Flash LIDAR camera opens many doors for 3D FLC in space, making both manned and unmanned AR&D possible," said Dr. Roger Stettner, President and CEO of ASC.  "We are pleased with what we've already been able to achieve with the DragonEye, and look forward to this next phase of product development which sets the stage for long term space use."

ASC 3D FLC systems can be found in a wide range of applications, including Automotive, Defense, Surveillance, Robotics and Aviation.  ASC's patented, unique technology brings tremendous value to space-based applications.
