Proving the Rescue Potential of Multi-sensor UAVs

Venturing into Disaster Zones
When disaster strikes, the courage and experience of rescue task forces is put to the test. They face heading into the unknown every time they enter a terrain during a rescue mission. Efforts to implement the latest technological tools, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), to support their work are aimed at providing safer working conditions for rescue teams and speeding up search activities to improve the efficiency of the entire rescue mission. UAV reconnaissance is considered a very powerful way of overcoming the potentially dangerous lack of information in affected areas. Specially equipped unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or ‘drones’)...

Applanix DSS Airborne Sensor is ESRI Image Server Ready

Applanix’ DSS Airborne Digital Sensor System has successfully transferred and rapidly processed geo-referenced imagery using the ESRI Image Server. Ortho photos derived from the Applanix DSS directly georeferenced imagery and the USGS DEM were produced and shared via ESRI Image Server in less than eight hours after the flight. This represents a step towards full on-demand interoperability between industry airborne remote sensing systems and geospatial data server technology. The digital format of the DSS Digital Sensor System makes the Applanix camera platform co-operate with the ESRI Image Server. Geospatial data stored within the ESRI Image Server – raw georeferenced DSS... (read more)
