Take the NOAA Survey on Proposed Resolution Restrictions for EO Commercial Imaging Satellites

INDEPENDENCE, OHIO, 13 February 2012 – On behalf of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Global Marketing Insights, Inc. (GMI) is conducting a survey on proposed resolution restriction changes for commercial electro-optical (EO) imaging satellites.

Proposed modifications under consideration include changing the resolution restriction on commercial EO satellite imagery from 0.5 meters to 0.25 meters ground sample distance (GSD). NOAA seeks input from Academic, Government, and Commercial organizations that sell or use commercial satellite imagery on how the proposed changes will impact their sector.

The survey will take three minutes to complete. Responses are needed by February 17, 2012.

Aibot X6 uses Leica Nova MultiStation for accurate geospatial data without GNSS

(Norcross, GA /Kassel, Germany, 1 October, 2014) – At this year’s INTERGEO in Berlin, Leica Geosystems and its sister company, Aibotix, will present a solution for accurate positioning of the Aibot X6 without GNSS. The UAV can be tracked accurately with the Leica Nova MultiStation to define the exact position. Using the Aibot X6 together with the Nova MultiStation can inspect top surfaces of aircrafts in hangars, enabling users to rely on its proven functionality without the support of GNSS. The UAV, equipped with Leica Geosystems’ 360° prism, flies over the aircraft and takes high-resolution images of its surface. This solution helps, for example, to ascertainlightning strikes and effectively document […]
