 April 2004 LSI in association with WIRE Services/Manitoba Hydro was represented at the Western Governors’ Association North American Energy Summit in Albuquerque New Mexico.

 April 2004LSI has been awarded a 250 linear km LiDAR transmission line rating and re-rating project in Alberta. Standard deliverables include forward video and high resolution digital orthorectified imagery of the transmission corridor. This is the second LiDAR project for this electrical utility, awarded under a general services contract that extends into 2005.

 April 2004LSI in association with WIRE Services/Manitoba Hydro will have a booth at The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) annual conference in Seattle Washington. Visit us at booth #134.

April 2004LSI will be mobilizing the second HELIX LiDAR system to Malaysia for a 70 linear km long x .5 km wide new transmission line corridor survey. Following this project the system will be sent to Indonesia – Borneo for up to three coal mine expansion projects, similar to the 2003 LiDAR survey campaign into Indonesia.

March 2004 LSI awarded a 148 linear km LiDAR survey over existing transmission lines in the NE USA. This project also involves the survey of a new route corridor running parallel to an existing transmission line. This is the first electrical utility project for LSI in the USA. Project mobilization will occur in April.

February 2004LSI awarded a very time critical and unique WINTER LiDAR thermal rating project on an existing electrical transmission line in Northern Alberta. The LiDAR survey will be done in conjunction with a conventional ground survey that will define the ground terrain model under the almost 2 feet of snow below the transmission lines. LSI will integrate the LiDAR derived wire catenary data with the ground survey terrain model so that a detailed thermal rating analysis can be performed by LSI’s utility engineering partner WIRE Services. Project mobilization will be at the end of February.
