Company purchased an integrated airborne data acquisition system that consists of an ADS40, GPro image processing workstation and a GeoVault data management system.

Digital Aerial Solutions Inc., a full service commercial provider of digital aerial photography and geospatial information, has purchased from Leica Geosystems an integrated airborne data acquisition system that consists of an ADS40, GPro image processing workstation and a GeoVault data management system.

Digital Aerial Solutions’ integrated package consists of:

  • The ADS40: an all-digital flowline that has the swath width and area coverage of a film camera without the chemical film processing or scanning. The sensor produces 12-bit data with three stereo panchromatic views, three color bands and one near-infrared band, exploiting the three-line stereo scanner concept and a number of technological innovations.
  • GPro: software which provides ADS40 image ground processing and supports a rich suite of digital photogrammetric software that is modular, customizable, and an open system that can accommodate all photogrammetric processes: triangulation, orientation, feature collection, digital terrain models (DTMs), orthophotos, mosaics, and more. This suite of software works with scanned film imagery, airborne digital imagery and satellite data.
  • GeoVault: a cost-effective, automated, data management system that provides accessible and secure long term storage and management of digital imagery files and geospatial information in a work group setting. It is also a multi-tiered client-server application.

Digital Aerial Solutions is expected to begin using the ADS40 commercially upon completion of system integration and acceptance in March 2003. Digital Aerial Solutions will distribute image products through direct sales, strategic partners and an indirect channel network of resellers. The company will also sell to value-added resellers, who in turn will market derivative products through their own distribution channel.
