Unprecedented Resolution

Quick & Safe Surveys

High-Density Point Clouds


Seeing Beyond the Surface

LiteWave's EDGE   is the world's first small-scale topographic and bathymetric scanning LiDAR that can detect small underwater objects, measure shallow water depth, and survey critical underwater infrastructure from a small UAV platform.

LiteWave's patented 2-in-1 topo-bathy LiDAR overcomes the limitations of traditional bathymetric LiDAR, measuring underwater features at centimeter-level depth resolution. From coastal mapping and surveying, to infrastructure inspection and military logistics, the applications of our LiDAR are numerous and widespread.

  • Low size, weight and power design for small form-factor UAVs

  • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery is easily removed and swapped for additional flights

  • Optional data interface can be specified upon ordering

  • Extremely low data volume compared to other LiDAR systems makes for faster processing and lower storage requirement

Big Results

EDGE  is the optimal choice for small scale tactical surveys where high-definition mapping of shallow waters (0-10m depths) is needed:

• Streams, Rivers, Ponds, & Lakes
• Near-Shore / Coastal Environments
• Water Resource Management
• Natural Disaster Assessment & Recovery
• Underwater Infrastructure Inspection
• Military Logistics
• Industrial Retention Ponds

Seamless Land-to-Water Transition

The LiteWave EDGE provides high-definition measurements both above and below the water surface and accurately measures the transition from land to water. Additionally, we provide simultaneous water and bottom surface detection at sub-centimeter accuracy and precision from shore through shallow waters—an industry first.

Our versatile scanning LiDAR provides 3-D imagery of the underwater scene, and yet meets the size, weight, and power requirements for common-use UAV (drone) deployment—another industry first.
