TigerEye 3D Flash LIDAR Camera Kit™

The TigerEye Camera Kit has been developed for the purpose of allowing ASC’s customers to design and model their systems including development of hardware and software interfaces, control points, as well as allowing for quality design decisions. ASC provides custom design camera development services under a separate Professional Services Agreement.

The TigerEye is a small form-factor (11 x 11.2 x 12.1 cm) integrated 3D Flash LIDAR Video Camera (3D FLVC) that is comprised of three primary components, the (A) Base Unit, the (B) Lens/Diffuser/Laser and the (C) Cooling System.

The TigerEye Basic Unit contains: Part Number TE-

  • Anodized metal camera box
  • 3D Sensor Engine
    • 128 x 128 InGaAs APD (detector array)
  • 1570 nm eye-safe laser
  • Laser assembly (2.5 to 7 mJ/pulse depending on configuration)
  • Passive air-cooling operations up to 30 Hz
  • Windows-based notebook PC including ASC control and viewing software
  • Documentation (Camera Operator’s Manual, Camera Control Specification, Interface Control Document)
  • Based Unit Power Supply & Operation
    • 24 V DC (+/- 4V)
  • Ethernet/Power Interface

The TigerEye Receiver Lens & Diffusers

The user chooses the lens/diffuser combination based on their requirements and goals. The current choices are:

  • 3º field of view (actual full FOV = 3º x 3º); 128x128 pixels resolution
    • Range up to~ 1100 meters
  • 9º field of view (actual full FOV = 8.6º x 8.6º); 128x128 pixels resolution
    • Range up to ~ 450 meters
  • 45º x 22º field of view; 128 x 64 pixels resolution
    • Range up to ~ 150 meters
  • 45º field of view; 128 x 128 pixels resolution
    • Range up to ~ 60 meters

Note: Customized Lens and diffusers can be created under a separate contract requiring a minimum order quantity and Professional Services agreement.

The TigerEye Cooling System

The TigerEye comes standard with a passive cooling system (air cooled). The user may choose from the other available options depending upon the temperature range requirements.
