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)

ITT Delivers Imaging Sensor for GeoEye-1 Satellite

ITT Corporation (NY, USA) its Space Systems Division has successfully shipped the next-generation commercial imaging payload for the GeoEye-1 satellite to General Dynamics (AZ, USA). ITT’s contribution includes the design and manufacture of the electro-optical assembly (camera) that will take pan-sharpened, multi-spectral images of the earth with better than 0.5-meter resolution from 425 miles above the Earth. GeoEye plans to launch GeoEye-1 later this year from Vandenberg AFB, California, USA. The delivery of the GeoEye-1 payload is the second of three sensors to be supplied by ITT under the U.S. government’s NextView program. ITT delivered the first sensor to DigitalGlobe... (read more)

Leica ADS40 2nd Generation Airborne Digital Sensor

Leica Geosystems (Switzerland) has introduced its Leica ADS40 2nd Generation Airborne Digital Sensor. In 2001, the company introduced the first large-format digital camera, the ADS40. Leica Geosystems has now developed two new sensor heads - SH51 and SH52 - for this system. Equipped with new, patented beamsplitter technology, the SH51 Sensor Head provides co-registered colour and panchromatic images for stereo viewing. The SH52 adds a stereo colour-infrared capability. Professionals can now produce and use the 5-band co-registered imagery for all aerial surveying and airborne remote sensing applications. Time and costs are saved through simultaneous, wide-area acquisition of true high-resolution panchromatic,... (read more)

First Black Rhinos Protected by Sensor Implants in Horns

The Internet of Life and the ShadowView Foundation have successfully implanted LoRaWAN-equipped sensors directly into the horns of critically endangered black rhinos. The sensors give park rangers the ability to accurately monitor the whereabouts and activities of the large mammals and keep them safe from poachers. The operation took place in Tanzania and is part of a LoRaWAN IoT Smart Parks solution that is rolled out in several National Parks throughout Africa. The rhino-trackers show the location of the animals within the sanctuary, providing the park’s security personnel with better actionable intelligence. The deployment in Tanzania was supported by Semtech and... (read more)
