About
Why raymetrics?
Experience
Raymetrics has been in the commercial LIDAR market longer than most other manufacturers, with backscatter LIDARs available commercially since 2002, Raman LIDARs since 2004 and 3D scanning LIDARs since 2008.
In-house Software and Hardware Development
All optical designs, mechanical designs and software are developed in-house, meaning that the company understands all elements of LIDAR function and integration. We build LIDARs and only LIDARs.
Transparency
The company has since its establishment adopted a transparent purchasing, sales and partnerships policy, as well as a highly responsible attitude to clients.
International Presence
Raymetrics exports its products all over the world, with systems in North America, Africa, Europe, South America and Asia - see map.
Knowledge
Raymetrics has a background in LIDAR science, having helped to bring the technology from academia to the marketplace. Our close ties to the scientific community allow us to benefit from new developments, leading to designs which have continually evolved and improved.
Standards
Raymetrics LIDARs conform to all necessary standards and requirements. Aviation systems conform to ISO 28902-1:2012 Air Quality - Environmental Meteorology Part 1: Ground-based remote sensing of visual range by LIDAR. Eye-safe systems are according to the European Standard on Laser Safety EN 60825-1:2008. The company is certified as being in compliance with standard ISO 9001:2008 (support provided by CORALLIA). All Raymetrics LIDARs are built to EARLINET recommended standards for LIDAR design, including a purpose-built depolarization unit designed specifically for EARLINET’s +/-45 degree test for calibrating the depolarization constant, specialist tools for performing the Telecover Test for accurate alignment, etc.
Prestigious Client List
Our client list includes many prestigious institutes and organizations.
Partnerships
We have a strong association with the European LIDAR Network (EARLINET), ensuring quality and compatibility. Raymetrics has more LIDARs in this network than any other manufacturer. We are also an official Associated Partner of the Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure Network (ACTRIS) and its follow-up, ACTRIS II. This is a European Project aimed at integrating European ground-based stations equipped with advanced atmospheric probing instrumentation for aerosols, clouds, and short-lived gas phase species.
Reputation
Raymetrics has a reputation for delivering exceptional products which perform to the levels we specify.
Customization
Raymetrics LIDARs are designed to be modular. This allows users to adapt the specification to exactly their needs without incurring additional costs. It also allows for simple upgrades.
