SANTA BARBARA, CA, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - 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
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

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