GEOInformatics Interview

Interview with Ken Mooyman, Head of Leica HDS
GEOInformatics interview probes Leica Geosystems current and future paths in laser scanning, including the impact of Hexagon's acquisition of Leica Geosystems on the future of its HDS business. This interview can be found in the April/May 2006 issue of GEOInformatics.
Interview Excerpt:

"GP - Now that Leica Geosystems has been taken over by Hexagon AB, and given Hexagon's existing strengths in the metrology field, one might expect new product development to go towards very short-distance laser scanners that could be used indoors for metrology applications - for example, reverse engineering, prototyping and the measurement and recording of small objects. Will entry into this area be a long-term aim for Leica Geosystems and a strategic objective of Hexagon AB?

KM - One of the strategic objectives at Hexagon is to remain the leader both in the micro and macro measurement space. As the existing leader, we will continue to monitor the needs of our customers in all our markets and develop the required solutions. I think the trend will continue and even accelerate to move towards laser scanning as a mainstream tool in both these micro and macro markets. The benefits of accurate, high definition as-built (as-is) information are not only valuable to an engineer designing a bridge retrofit, but also to an engineer who is reverse engineering an automobile part. Laser scanning in all markets for Hexagon, including those within Leica Geosystems, will continue to be a long term aim."
