Recall, a short time ago Sigma Space Corporation hosted a webinar designed to introduce technologists to Single Photon LiDAR (SPL) technology
If you happen to have missed out on the webinar we’re glad to share some additional resources on the topic, including a pointer to where you can access a recording of this event to watch at your leisure.

Sigma Space Corporation recently unveiled its Single Photon LiDAR (SPL) technology and processing services to the commercial market. These SPL sensors combine the advantages of single photon sensitivity with nanosecond recovery times and a multistop timing capability, enabling entire counties to be mapped within hours. Single Photon LiDAR is a fully scalable, operational technology proven across multiple instruments flying today at altitudes from 2,000 to 60,000 feet (Degnan and Field, 2014). Sigma Space has refined its wide area elevation data technology over the past 15 years in support of government, academic, and private industry customers. The technology is revolutionizing the acquisition efficiency and affordability of high resolution 3D information. To highlight the groundbreaking nature of the technology, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is utilizing SPL for the ICESat-2 (Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite) space mission scheduled for launch in 2017 (Degnan, 2009). Based on this successful heritage, Sigma Space is excited to offer its SPL technology to business and civil government users.
