Scan Compound Arches

JUNE 15, 2017

 

ITA used 3D laser scanning to capture the complex geometry of two compound concrete arches prior to installation of finish stonework.  The point cloud was used to accurately map out the precise placement of each stone.  In 4 hours we accomplished what would have otherwise taken 1-2 weeks using traditional measurement techniques - thereby saving our client time and money.

ITA Develops Detailed 3D Environments for 5G Wireless Research

MARCH 10, 2017

 

With the help of our Leica ScanStation P40 and specialized 3D radio propagation software, ITA has produced a number of highly detailed and spatially accurate digital 3D environments that have been optimized for wireless simulations and efficient ray-tracing.

 

The models are being used for research and analysis of site-specific radio propagation and wireless communications systems.

 

Our equipment capabilities allow us to quickly and accurately capture measurement data in large-scale, complex urban environments.  From these detailed 3D datasets we extract key information in order to produce purpose-built simulation models that are compatible with wireless propagation software.
