Attollo Engineering, a privately-held company focused on the design and manufacturing of laser sensing and infrared imaging devices, launched the WASP-200 LRF, a laser rangefinder with varied configurations. According to the company, its WASP series of rangefinders are designed to measure ranges at a rate of up to 10,000 points per second with remarkable accuracy and precision in a tiny package.

The WASP-200 LRF can be used for precision agriculture applications and as a proximity-to-ground sensor onboard small or large unmanned aerial vehicles. It has 1-centimeter resolution and 10-centimeter accuracy, the company added. In addition, the laser rangefinder is compatible with the Collins Aerospace Piccolo (CAN Bus and RS-232) and Pixhawk drivers.

The WASP series of rangefinders also feature single-shot laser ranging for fast scanning and moving platforms; programmable burst mode averaging; an IP 67 option; connector options, including pigtails; durable molded ABS plastic housing; and integrated back or front mounting.

According to Attollo Engineering, the rangefinders are suitable for a number of applications, including robotics and drone, sense and avoid, industrial automation, height and distance measurements, and maritime operations.

Attollo Engineering will be showcasing the WASP-200 LRF at booth 2604 at AUVSI’s Xponential 2019 in Chicago.
