L-KOPIA finished the fieldwork for New Jersey Transit in late May. The Excursion Laser Truck was taken directly to Rockland, Maine for a 57-mile load survey on CMQ Railway. The CMQ data is already processed and delivered for a rush load simulation.
The Excursion was scheduled for a special tunnel survey in Arizona so Lars Lundberg drove from Portland, Maine to Seligman, Arizona in 5 days and performed the tunnel survey in one hour and 20 minutes! Data was delivered the same day we performed the survey (express delivery).
Keith and Austin Sykes are continuing the major survey we started in Birmingham Alabama on March 30th. Keith and Austin are now close to Galesburg, Illinois.
L-KOPIA is still working on the Canadian clearance measuring contract for 2016 and we think most outstanding insurance issues are solved. We are also waiting for the new laser vehicle, a 2016 Ford F350. It will of course take some time to add Hy-Rail and all laser related features. L-KOPIA hope to be able to use the new laser truck in the fall.
LKO in Sweden is very busy with TRV (Swedish Rail Track Administration) and building the LKO Z+F laser system for JBV in Norway.
Per Arne Pettersson of LKO did get our Mitsubishi L200 Laser Vehicle equipped with a Mobile Mapping system in the beginning of May, but the “double laser system trial” will be scheduled for a later time.
