Voyager Space announced the signing of a MoU with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Department of Space and the Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Center (IN-SPACe) to explore opportunities for the utilization of ISRO’s Gaganyaan crewed spacecraft to service Starlab, a first-of-its-kind, continuously crewed, free-flying space station.
The objective is to jointly study the potential use of ISRO’s Gaganyaan spacecraft to provide crewed flights to the Starlab station. Furthermore, Voyager and IN-SPACe will seek additional collaboration opportunities with various stakeholders within the Indian space ecosystem, including research institutions, commercial entities, and government agencies.
Artec 3D collaborates with Leica Geosystems
Artec 3D has introduced the Artec Ray II, a highly precise 3D Lidar scanner specifically designed for digitizing large objects and spaces with exceptional speed and accuracy. The new scanner is the result of a collaborative effort between Artec 3D and Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon. The Artec Ray II is capable of capturing a complete dome in just 1.7 minutes, achieving a 3D point accuracy of 1.9mm from a distance of 10m. These features make it an ideal solution for generating digital twins of extensive objects and complex scenes.
