GeoVantage has developed two digital airborne camera systems targeted for export sensor leasing, making the acquisition of high resolution aerial imagery possible even in regions where land is more remote. This enables expert oversight of land assets even when land use managers are not onsite.
Our color camera is fashioned from consumer camera components and our proprietary navigation system to produce affordable imagery similar to high quality large format sensor data. The multispectral camera (Build IV2) provides imagery of more scientific value in detailed vegetation analysis of agriculture and forestry.
Full Service International Coverage
GeoVantage provides full service coverage including managing all flight collection across the U.S. and Canada, and can arrange for full service collection worldwide at client request.
In addition, long-term partners service regional areas based in South Africa, Australia, and Argentina.
Both cameras can be used interchangeably and use common subsystems and processing software… GeoVantage provides all data processing and system performance using web interfaces so that no in-country technical staff are required.
Our Export Systems:
- Use Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and GPS for direct georegistration.
- Utilize off-the-shelf industrial/commercial digital camera technology to reduce costs.
- Are engineered so that all functionality can be used by in-country staff with no requirements for on-site training or assistance by U.S. staff.
- Allow web-based mission planning and post-processing into a georegistrated imagery mosaic with no requirement for in-country technical staff.
- Provide better quality imagery than from commercial satellites: better resolution, better positional accuracy, and faster response.
- Can be added to a small single-engine aircraft without significant modification – and removed/reinstalled in less than one hour, allowing aircraft to be used for passenger service when not in use for remote sensing.
- Allow image collection to final-delivery with a response time measured in hours.
- Function very well at low ceilings prevalent in much of the world, such as 3000 ft. In contrast, any benefits of a large pixel count camera are negated at these low altitudes.
