Enriching Aerial Cameras to a Smart Geospatial Solution
Kreuztal and Copenhagen, February 19th, 2015 IGI, a leading provider of smart geospatial solutions and Phase One Industrial, a leading manufacturer and provider of medium format aerial and industrial digital photography equipment, today announced that all Phase One aerial cameras (iXA-R, iXA, iXU) fully support the IGI AEROcontrol, GNSS/IMU positioning system.
Phase One aerial cameras are high-quality industrial-grade camera systems, which have found wide success in the photogrammetry market, both among end users and OEM integrators. Phase One has created an open system that enables users to assemble a flexible ecosystem based on best of breed components in order to handle multiple applications. The addition of support for IGIs AEROcontrol opens up new possibilities for Phase One aerial camera users.
AEROcontrol is a GNSS/IMU system for the precise determination of position and altitude of multiple airborne sensors. Beside the choice of MEMS- and FOG-based IMUs, the system is also suitable for mobile mapping applications. Used together with IGIplan and CCNS-5, a complete and comprehensive solution for mission planning, aircraft guidance with sensor management and geo-referencing is available to Phase One aerial camera users.
Dov Kalinski, General Manager of Phase One Industrial said, With the addition of IGIs AEROcontrol, users of Phase One aerial cameras are able to use IGIs popular AEROcontrol, GNSS/IMU positioning system with a single camera or as part of an array.
Philipp Grimm, Marketing and Sales Manager at IGI, added, With the integration of theIGI AEROControl GNSS/IMU with the Phase One aerial cameras, all Phase One users now have access to geo-referencing with different IGI IMU models and IMU-based, precise stabilized mount control. This smart geospatial solution helps users obtain the best possible aerial photography results.
