  • 80-Meter Large-Scale Dimensional Standard

    The 80-meter large dimensional standard is composed of an 80-meter accurate guide rail, a large scale laser measurement system, an ambient temperature measurement system and an automatic control system. It reaches an uncertainty of (0.1μm+2×10...

  • Large-scale Spatial Coordinate National Standard

    Large-scale Spatial Coordinate National Standard (under construction), with dimensions of 8m*6m*3m, can be traced to National Length Standard using multi-lateral coordinate measurement method,...

  • High-Speed Close-Range Photogrammetry System and...

    This project aims to develop a high-speed close-range photogrammetry measurement system as well as a calibration standard. Based upon stereovision method, the high-speed close-range photogrammetry system can measure velocity of moving object. The...
