Coastal & Marine Systems


Powerful and affordable coastal and marine mapping system

The Optech Aquarius is an innovative compact solution for mapping coastal and inland waterways. Compatible with the Gemini, Aquarius collects simultaneous land and water-depth measurements, enabling wholly complete datasets that span the land/water interface. An entry-level sensor compared to Optech’s full-featured lidar bathymetry system (CZMIL), it still outperforms other bathymetric laser systems currently in the market. Aquarius provides depth information in relatively clear and shallow water environments not previously accessible to conventional topographic mapping sensors alone.
