technology

Psionic sensor technology leverages decades of lidar experience at NASA.  Psionic sensors provide unparalleled performance in a range of complex, real world environments and allow consistent ranging no matter the application.

PHYSICS

Psionic sensors utilize advanced Doppler lidar technology.  In contrast to time-of-flight lidar, which determines range by measuring the departure/return time of a pulse of light as reflected by a target, Doppler lidar works by measuring the frequency shift of the returning light.  Inherently more complex to do, the reward is significant performance advantages such as longer range (thousands of meters vs. a few hundred), improved signal-to-noise ratios as well as providing a target’s bearing (direction and velocity) in addition to relative distance.

Other examples of Doppler technology utilization include FM radio and Doppler radar.  Measuring the frequency shift of light particles results in an order of magnitude performance improvement.

physics

Psionic sensors utilize heterodyne, coherent, continuous wave or Doppler lidar technology. In contrast to time-of- flight lidar, which determines range by measuring the departure/return time of a pulse of light as reflected by a target, Doppler lidar works by measuring the frequency shift of the returning light. Inherently more complex to do, the reward is significant performance advantages such as longer range (thousands of meters vs. a few hundred), signal-to- noise immunity as well as providing a target’s direction and velocity as well as its relative distance.

Other examples of Doppler technology utilization include FM radio, Doppler radar. Measuring the frequency shift as opposed to just a pulse results in many orders of magnitude performance advantages.

HERITAGE

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) historic expertise with lidar dates to the 1960s across a wide set of usage applications.

Upon this accumulated expertise NASA developed its first Doppler lidar in the early 2000s to support the ALTAIR mission, an autonomous landing on the dark side of the moon.  Since adapted to the MARS LANDER MISSION and currently being space-testing, this lidar technology absorbed many tens of millions over nearly a decade to deliver the advanced performance required for space travel.

Psionic has exclusive commercial license to NASA’s Doppler lidar as a component to Psionic sensors technology.
