Visual Intelligence’s iOne STKA Awarded the Technology Innovation 2013 Award in Sensors

Visual Intelligence has earned the prestigious Geospatial World Technology Innovation Award for its iOne STKA(iOne Sensor Tool Kit Architecture). The award, in the sensors category,
was announced at the Geospatial World Forum in Rotterdam earlier today.

The iOne STKA represents the next generation of geoimaging for oblique, 3D and engineering base mapping. Unlike traditional products in the market, the tool kit architecture provides the foundation to readily and economically develop high-performing, reconfigurable in the field 2D-3D geoimaging sensors for aerial, terrestrial and mobile applications — all while using a single
software/hardware foundation. This translates into lower up-front and operational costs, increased collection capacity in less time, new levels of engineering accuracy and simplified upgrades for customers.

Visual Intelligence’s President and CEO Dr. Armando Guevara accepted the award at the conference:

“The innovation award is a great honor; a validation to our customers and a reaffirmation of our emerging leading position in the industry,” said Guevara. “Companies that rely on 2D and 3D remote sensing and metric mapping equipment are facing rapidly changing requirements — from airborne, to terrestrial to mobile. The iOne STKA foundation meets those needs — replacing the monolithic single-purpose sensors that are both costly and operationally inflexible. Mapping and remote sensing companies of all sizes can now select a ‘buy-what-you-need and add-as-you-grow’ approach,  have access to industry firsts reconfigurable in the field sensors, from engineering grade large area stereo with .6 b/h ratio, to metric high resolution  oblique/3D and vice versa  — all while improving performance at the same time.”

Moving forward, Visual Intelligence’s ongoing R&D developments will enable iOne STKA sensor deployments on UAV/UAS and miniaturized mobile devices.

Adds Guevara, “Our vision is to encourage multi-purpose sensor developments — based on open standards — so that geoimaging innovation can continue to become an intrinsic part of the ‘science of where.’”

About the Geospatial Innovation Awards

Geospatial Media and Communications, the leading media agency in the geospatial sector, today conferred its annual Geospatial World Awards to 19 organizations. The annual awards are given in three categories – Geospatial World Excellence Awards (for applications), Geospatial World Policy Awards (for policy implementation) and Geospatial World Innovation Awards (for technology innovation). Over 200 award nominations were received from the call for nominations, which were judged by a panel of expert judges including Matt Ball, founder and editor of Vector1 Media, USA; Robert Samborski, private consultant and former CEO of GITA, USA; Geoff Zeiss, director  of OGC and former director of Autodesk, Canada; Professor Arup Dasgupta, managing editor of Geospatial World Magazine, India; and Dr. Hrishikesh Samant, associate professor and head of the Geology Department at St. Xavier's College, India.

About Visual Intelligence

Visual Intelligence LP, founded in 2003, is a leading sensor technology company, delivering world-class geoimaging solutions for airborne, terrestrial and mobile applications. The company has a rich history of industry innovations, including USGS Sensor Type Certification and numerous patents. Today the company delivers to the geospatial market place the iOne family of sensors — the most economical, best performing, reliable, modular and scalable family of oblique/3D and engineering mapping geoimaging sensors. With their smaller size and lower weight, the iOne sensors can be tightly and metrically Co Mounted and Co registered (“CoCo”) with LiDAR and other active or passive sensors and devices (thermal, radar, FLIR and others). The iOne family represents multifunctional sensors, scalable in collection capacity, that can be configured as required to do ortho, multispectral, stereo, oblique, 3D, point clouds and geoinformation product generation, all in one pass.
