Icaros Inc., a provider of aerial imaging software, has launched version 5.1 of OneButton Standard and Professional image processing software for drones. It now features advanced algorithms to process Thermal IR images from Radiometric microbolometer sensors.

“When it comes to professional thermal mapping within the global commercial drone industry, one of the biggest challenges is to keep the radiometric information throughout whole image collection, processing and mapping process,” says Stefan Thamke, CEO of TeAx Technology.

Icaros’ OneButton family for drone image processing helps users generate fully orthorectified 2D maps and 3D models from frame-based aerial imaging systems. Originally engineered for manned aircraft sensors, OneButton software has been modified to accommodate the collection conditions of unmanned aerial systems (UAS). OneButton 5.1 enables users to define radiometric parameters to precisely post-process ThermalCapture RAW readings into precise temperature maps.

OneButton radiometric post-processing of FLIR Core-TeAx ThermalCapture sensor data includes the ability to adjust: emissivity, atmospheric transmission and temperature, background temperature, and temperature shift.

These features enable TeAx ThermalCapture users to process imagery into high-fidelity thermal orthomosaics, which are crucial for professional industrial applications like precision agriculture.

“Icaros and TeAx Technology formed a close international alliance, each bringing enormous knowledge and experience in their own field of expertise, and then worked passionately together to create a one-of-a-kind, professional, state-of-the-art, automated thermal mapping solution for the global commercial drone industry,” Thamke says.

Current users of OneButton Standard and Professional editions can download and install the latest version from: https://www.icaros.us/ob-software.

OneButton creates a complete image processing workflow for aerial image data and can front-end both GIS and analytics workflows to enable customers to solve challenging problems related to agriculture, forestry, utilities and city planning.
