CASE STUDIES

NASA - Using High-Resolution, Multi-sensor Data to Characterize Puerto Rican Forests

After hurricane deforestation in Puerto Rico, NASA scientists study forest regrowth using high-resolution, multi-sensor data. As a key component of NASA’s G-LiHT system, a 100 megapixel Phase One Industrial camera was used to produce RGB photographs for identification of fine-scale canopy features.

AeroInspekt - A Closer Aerial Inspection of Automated Shipping Yards in Motion

Storage cranes at Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG’s (HHLA) modern and efficient shipment yard require an annual survey of over 30km of rail per terminal. A research team at TU Braunschweig – AEROINSPEKT, has developed a system to perform airborne measurement of critical infrastructure in operation, thus reducing downtime required by manned ground inspection.

DigiSky SmartBay – A Multi-level Approach to Aerial Photogrammetry.

DigiSky offers aerial photogrammetry and monitoring services and recently completed a multilevel remote sensing mission for IREN ENERGIA S.p.A. to map the Serrù reservoir and hydroelectric production plant. The 1500 hectares area sits at altitudes of between 2000m and 2500m. A Phase One Industrial iXM-RS150F digital camera (90mm optics) installed into a SmartBay© avionic system captures data used to produce Digital Elevation Models (DEM) and orthophotos with a resolution of higher than 5cm / pixel.
