OGC Announces Sensor Alert Service Interoperability Experiment

The Open Geospatial Consortium Inc. (OGC) (MA, USA) will soon begin an Interoperability Experiment to create a draft specification and implementations of a Sensor Alert Service (SAS). The OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) Working Group has recognised that the SWE suite of standards and proposed standards requires an alert and notification mechanism to specify how alert or 'alarm' conditions are defined, detected, and made available to interested users. Therefore, this Interoperability Experiment will create a draft Sensor Alert Service (SAS) specification for consideration by the OGC SWE Working Group. An initial task of the SAS Interoperability Experiment will be to... (read more)

New Leica ADS100 Airborne Digital Sensor

Leica Geosystems has announced the new generation of its leading airborne digital sensor, the Leica ADS100. Introducing a focal plate design, the Leica ADS100 offers a swath width of 20,000 pixels for all multispectral bands (RGBN) and multispectral capability in forward, nadir and backward. The Leica ADS100 provides a large-format CCD line with TDI (Time Delay and Integration) to increase sensitivity despite a smaller pixel size. By doubling the cycle rate, high-resolution images can now be acquired at much higher ground speeds. To provide the best stabilisation performance, the new Leica PAV100 gyro-stabilised mount is equipped with adaptive control technology.... (read more)

New Airborne Lidar Sensor: Orion H300

Optech, the Canadian manufacturer of Lidar survey products, has announced the latest addition to its line of ALTM airborne laser terrain mappers, the Optech Orion H300. Built on the Orion sensor platform, the H300 adds high-altitude capability to a model line that already provides low- and mid-altitude 3D laser scanning solutions for corridor and engineering applications. With a maximum effective ground sampling rate of up to 300kHz, the Orion H300 delivers high-density point cloud data with industry-leading data precision and accuracy. Now even with ground sample rates of over 100kHz at altitudes above 4,000mAGL(>13,000 feetAGL). According toMichael Sitar, Optech's airborne... (read more)

Sensor Technology Evolving in Many Directions

5 Questions to…Michel Stanier
As Lidar is a hot topic in the geomatics industry with numerous fields of applications, 'GIM International' decided to ask Michel Stanier, chief operating officer of Teledyne Optech, to answer five questions in the context of airborne Lidar. Lidar has been developing rapidly over the last couple of years. Can you give us an update? Indeed, airborne Lidar is developing rapidly in several directions. The unmanned aerial system (UAS)/remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS) platforms are driving a continued reduction in sensor size, weight and power. However, for commercial data providers, the primary focus remains on collection efficiency and lower operating... (read more)

Multi-sensor Cave Detection in Bulgaria

Meeting the Challenges of Complex Karst Environments
Caves are important in a wide variety of fields, ranging from construction engineering to mineral exploration and archaeology. Despite the scientific importance of caves, geologists believe that only a relatively small number of them have been discovered so far. Exploration is currently mainly conducted by speleologists but this is a time-consuming activity and is limited to exploration based on existing surface openings. A recent project in Bulgaria has shown that the combination of multiple geophysical techniques provides an easier and effective on-surface exploration method that meets the challenges of complex karst environments. (By Tanya Slavova and Atanas Rusev, Bulgaria) Several... (read more)
