Large Scale Assembly Utilizing Laser Radar & IRGPS 2004-01-2831

Advancements in measurement technology have facilitated the automation of the alignment process but its use has been limited due to difficulty in measuring and monitoring the join features during the alignment process. A newly developed method that combines the capabilities of Arc Second's IRGPS system along with Leica's Scanning Laser Radar technology provides an alternative means to automate the assembly and alignment of large complex structures.
