Description


Companies

Airborne Sensors \ Airborne sensors are designed to acquire remote sensing data for various applications, including digital imagery (airborne digital sensors) and LiDAR (airborne laser scanner).

Construction Lasers \ Construction lasers refers to a variety of laser-based equipment used in the construction industry.

Field and Mobile Solutions \ Field and mobile solutions empower users in the field with mobile tools and applications, mostly geospatial information systems (GIS).

GNSS & GPS Systems \ The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that provides location and time information anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS/GNSS satellites.

Laser Distance Meter \ Laser distance meters derive ranges, heights, areas and volumes of the measured distances within construction and asset management, forestry management, map revisions, etc.

Laser Scanners \ A laser scanner is a device that captures a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape. The collected data can then be used to construct digital, three-dimensional (3D) models. 3D laser scanners are capable of capturing up to 1 million points per second.

Levels \ A level is an instrument used in surveying, engineering, building and construction to determine height differences and to transfer, measure or set horizontal levels.

Locators \ Locators are tools used before and during the construction process to locate underground services.

Machine Control \ Machine control refers to automatic and semi-automatic steering systems for agricultural and construction machines used for tunneling, civil engineering, underground work, mining and fleet management.

Mining Systems \ The mining industry provides basic raw materials needed by major sectors of the world economy. Hexagon provides various solutions for this industry, which includes plant automation to optimize engineering data management to integrated monitoring and guidance solutions.

Monitoring Systems \ Hexagon provides technologies that can be used for various monitoring technologies. These range from integrated plant control and monitoring systems to the monitoring of natural or man-made structures. Surveying monitoring (also referred to as deformation monitoring) is the systematic measurement and tracking of the alteration in the shape or dimensions of an object as a result of the application of stress to it. Deformation monitoring is a major component of logging measured values that may be used for further computation, deformation analysis, predictive maintenance and alarming.

Software \ The Hexagon group of companies provides a multitude of software, including enterprise engineering software, geospatially powered software, surveying and construction software and dimensional metrology software packages.

Theodolites \ A theodolite is an optical instrument consisting of a small mounted telescope rotatable in horizontal and vertical planes. Theodolites are used to measure angles in surveying, meteorology and navigation.

Total/Laser Stations \ A total station is a multi-purpose electronic surveying instrument with a built-in electronic distance meter capable of measuring horizontal distances, slope distances, angles, vertical height differences, 3D coordinates and a number of other positional features. All measured data can be stored onboard or on a removable storage device. Modern total stations provide onboard programs and graphics including image capture capabilities.
