ASC, the leading supplier of 3D cameras for terrestrial and space applications, proudly introduces the GoldenEye 3D camera designed specifically for a wide range of space operations.


The GoldenEye provides real-time steaming 3D range (point cloud) data capable of supporting ISS rendezvous and berthing/docking, on-orbit satellite servicing, entry, decent and landing on planets/moons/asteroids, mapping, collision avoidance and situational awareness. The robust, small, design tolerates shock, vibration and vacuum environments and is capable of imaging meters to kilometers. The GoldenEye can be configured for low Earth orbit or deep space operations. Available for deep space (SOLID configuration) or for near earth and moon operations (GEO3D configuration), ASC provides GoldenEye customization.

GoldenEye 3D Flash LIDAR Specifications:

-- 3D Sensor Engine with 128 x 128 InGaAs APD (detector array)
-- 'S' level space qualified parts; 100kRad SOLID; Customer shielding required for GEO3D
-- Range up to 3km inclusive (greater depending on laser/diffuser/lens choice)
-- Height: 14.5cm; Length: 21.6cm; Width: 14cm
-- Weight: 6.5 kg SOLID; 4kg GEO3D
-- Laser assembly (2 to 8 mJ or greater if required)
-- 1064nm laser (1570nm available upon request)
-- 24 V DC (+/- 4V); <50W
-- Range accuracy bias less than + 10 cm; better is available

"After years of research, development and testing, ASC is pleased to offer a mature, proven technology designed specifically for space." said Dr. Roger Stettner, CEO of Advanced ASC. "We are equally fortunate to have customers such as the OSIRIS-REx program who perceived the value of the GoldenEye camera and adopted it as the basis for their solution."

ASC's GoldenEye 3D Flash LIDAR Camera will be on display at SpaceTech Expo, booth #7042, May 21(st) - 23(rd), 2013.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
