Public Profile

In Febuary 2016, Sigma Space Corporation was acquired by Swedish firm Hexagon AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: HEXA B) a global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications. Sigma develops remote sensing instruments to measure clouds, aerosols, wind, and trace gases in the atmosphere, as well as a variety of aerospace instruments. It offers micro pulse lidar, a laser remote sensing system for monitoring of cloud and aerosol profiles in the atmosphere; photon counting accessories, such as discriminator, pulse distribution, and optical pick-off cards; protocol translator that translates communication protocols using a compact reconfigurable programmable translation module; and multi channel scalers. The company also provides 3D imaging lidars, laser sensors, hyperspectral systems, and miniature FTS systems. SigmaSpace offers a unique LiDAR technology – Single Photon LiDAR (SPL) – which enables 3D data collection at much higher speeds and resolution than conventional systems. This technology operates in night and day conditions and is able to penetrate semi-porous targets such as vegetation, tree canopies, ground fog, and clouds. Together with its speed of coverage, these features make it a superior choice for a wide range of industry applications and a prime candidate for the U.S. Geological Survey’s 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), which is intended to create a comprehensive 3D map of th
