Measuring Distance to Helicopter Landing Pads Posted in: AR3000 Distance Measurement Sensor – Tags:

When pilots are preparing to land a helicopter, they rely on the accurate and high performance of distance sensors. These distance measurement sensors will help pilots gauge the distance to a landing pad for a safe and timely landing.

When helicopter manufacturers and pilots choose to use the AR3000 distance measurement sensor for landing pad measurement, pilots can measure 300 meters to natural surfaces with near real time updates to the pilot.

In addition to helicopter pilots taking advantage of distance measurement, NASA and other aerospace leaders are also using long range sensor technology for research, including homeland security organizations. If your team could benefit from a distance measurement laser to measure the distance to a landing pad or other landing environment, please contact Acuity Laser today. In addition to distance measurement sensors, Acuity offers short range sensors as well as 2D scanners.
