Aerius photonics' has developed a miniature laser rangefinder/altimeter for autonomous navigation and landing in small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The with a system weight of only 26 grams and a range response from 0 to 100 meters, the unit is capable of insertion into platforms with very small payloads and enables new navigation capabilities previously difficult to achieve.
