PCI Geomatics to Develop a Commercial End-to-End Interferometric Processing Capability for Environmental Monitoring

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Canada—September 11, 2014-- PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today that it has been awarded a contract from the Canadian Space Agency to develop a commercial end-to-end interferometric processing capability for environmental monitoring.

This contract will allow PCI to develop a commercial, end-to-end interferometric processing and visualization capability designed to significantly reduce the processing requirements and operational constraints encountered when using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data by non-SAR experts. The software will automate the processing steps in a flexible and intuitive manner.  The extracted land motion estimates will be more easily integrated as the software will be reformatted to virtually any map projection and combine results with optical, map, vector or cadastral data to enhance the spatial context.

The targeted application areas for this software include mineral extraction, urban subsidence, transportation networks, oil and gas extraction, pipeline monitoring, volcano monitoring, and landslide prediction. The completion of an operational system, combined with high quality, easy to use tools will transition interferometric processing from research to commercial applications.

“PCI Geomatics has a long history in terms of developing software tools to make it easy for end users to work with SAR Imagery,” said David Piekny, Product Marketing Manager at PCI Geomatics. “The addition of interferometric capability to our Geomatica software suite will be a great addition to our SAR capability, which already includes support for airborne and space-based sensors, advanced target and polarimetric analysis, coherent change detection, as well as easy to use workflows for handling the imagery and producing end products.”

The contract, which was awarded through the Canadian Space Agency’s Earth Observation Application Development Program (EOADP), will enable PCI software engineers and Senior SAR scientists to develop this capability and integrate it into Geomatica. A release of the software that includes this new capability is expected in 2016.
