Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) has been developing 3D Flash LIDAR for space applications. The commercial versions of the sensor has be used in docking applications with the International Space Station (ISS) and space qualified versions are under development for the OSIRIS-REx asteroid rendezvous mission as well as the Commercial Crew Transport Capability (CCtCap). The Autonomous Landing and Hazard Avoidance Technology (ALHAT) sensor used ASC's 3D Flash LIDAR for the autonomous landing demonstrations with Morpheous. Potential NASA Applications include: -Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) -Commercial Resupply (CRS) to the International Space Station -Commercial Crew Transport Capability (CCtCap) -Planetary Entry Decent & Landing and ALHAT -Rover Mobility and Navigation -Space Situational Awareness
Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) has been developing 3D Flash LIDAR for many commercial applications for autonomous vehicles and collision avoidance . Commercial applications include collision avoidance to save pedestrians and prevent vehicle damage, Mid-Air Refueling, Surveillance, Terrain Mapping, Autonomous Navigation for unmanned ground, air and surface vehicles. The 3D maps created by the system will be useful to avoid automobile accidents and guide robots for Hazard Material Detection and Handling.
