sUAS Deployment Models

We have invested a tremendous amount of resources (monetary, development, knowledge) into developing technology and services for mapping sites using dense image matching collected with small Unnamed Aerial Systems (sUAS).  Our focus is applications suitable for an sUAS (non-populated areas, smaller sites) that require near survey grade accuracy.  The most common example is small open…

Mid-Pulse Blues

We have been doing a lot of experimenting with various airplane and camera configurations for small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS). We are very interested in the effect of camera quality on metric analysis. For example, does a better lens yield a more accurate surface model when extracting a dense image matching point cloud using an…

We are a software and systems company, not a services company so we have limited tools (and knowledge, for that matter) for carrying out this part of a mission. Nevertheless, we…

Questions, Questions

As we stand up our new small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) software and services subsidiary, we are exploring a wide range of technologies. So far, we have more questions than we have answers. We thought we would simply list some of these to give you an idea of our focus. We would be extremely interested…
