Based on the iOne STKA, Visual Intelligence recently launched a unique sensor technology for linear assets and infrastructure metric surveying & mapping called “iOne IMS –Infrastructure Metric-Mapping System ”.
The iOne IMS is mountable on helicopter or fixed wing air platforms. The sensor is light weight, compact, with a lower cost of ownership. The system is capable of collecting ortho, multispectral (co registered RGB+NIR), forward and backward oblique in one pass using the VI ARCA™ technology.
VI’s Isis Earth™ patented software is provided for radiometric processing of the data and automated feature extraction for objects of interest (e.g. electrical towers).
In the next release early 2013, VI will be able to generate point clouds from the imagery for 3D modeling. This will be performed by accelerating the image exposure rates for all frames in synch and metrically in CoCoTM mode that creates stereo overlap to support this capability.
VI has demonstrated the ability to design and configure sensor systems tailored to vertical market requirements very efficiently to meet the evolving imagery collection and processing requirements in the marketplace.
The iOne IMS opens the venue for immediate revenue generating opportunities since the modular nature of this sensor makes it readily functionally scalable in little time –to make it even more competitive for project purposes.
