Research & Education

Solutions for Research & Education
Leica Geosystems undertakes its own research in our Corporate Technology and Innovation Management Center (CTI) and has many collaborative projects underway with other research institutions.
The Leica TDA5005 aligns the largest camera in the world
150 physicists, 36 institutions in 13 countries and a budget of 120 million euros: Opera is an international project carried out in collaboration with CERN and with the participation of the CNRS(National Centre for Scientific Research) aimed at reproducing on Earth, in known conditions, the natural phenomenon of the transformation of muon neutrinos into tau neutrinos. The final objective is to validate a theoretical model which would support the Grand Unification Theory of physics. more
High-Speed Scanner Captures Nuances of Civil War USS Monitor Artifact
The treasures that lie beyond the doors of the Mariners’ Museum in Newport News, Virginia, are sure to capture the heart of any history buff. The museum is filled to the crow’s nest with prized artifacts that celebrate the spirit of seafaring adventure. Visitors from around the world experience over 60,000 square feet of gallery space filled Civil War ironclad USS Monitor artifacts and archives, paintings, small craft with rare figureheads, handcrafted ship models and much more. Perched on a 550-acre woodland park, the museum was recently the center of a major data acquisition effort to capture and digitally preserve a key artifact retrieved from the shipwrecked USS Monitor. more
Full-Size Dynamic Model of Giant Excavator
The research engineering team at Caterpillar came up with a set of requirements for the system that would capture a D9 bulldozer's track-in-motion data as well as other relevant 3D coordinate data derived from the bulldozer's surface and movement. This technology played a crucial role in measuring simultaneous forces exerted on the bulldozer track shoe, and, at the same time, measuring simultaneous displacement (position and angle) of the track shoe to the ground. more
Laser tracking helps CERN get measure of the universe
The European organisation for nuclear research, CERN, is the world’s largest particle physics centre. Based near Geneva, the laboratory was founded in 1954 as one of Europe’s first joint ventures, and has grown over the years into a foremost example of international scientific collaboration, now bringing together 20 member countries. European particle physics laboratory CERN uses Leica Geosystems’ state-of-the-art laser tracker system to measure key components of the world’s largest-ever particle accelerator. more
Leica laser tracker lives up to high demands placed by research facility
The Advanced Photon Source (APS) sounds like something right out of a Star Trek episode. But in fact, the APS is a third-generation synchrotron-radiation light source research facility, and plays a significant role in the world of groundbreaking research. There are only three such light sources in the world, and this one is located at Argonne National Laboratory, which is operated by the University of Chicago for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). more
