UN-Spider is currently compiling a list of experts from the space as well as the disaster/disaster-risk management community in order to have the mission team defined by the end of September. UN-Spider is looking for professionals from relevant institutions, organizations, companies or universities from the field of space technology and disaster/disaster-risk management who are already collaborating or are willing to collaborate in the future with the authorities or respective institutions in Ghana.

TAMs are part of UN-Spider’s Technical Advisory Support, one of the core activities of the Programme. TAM experts meet during the mission with key disaster management authorities in the Government, UN agencies, regional and international organizations or initiatives and private entrepreneurs to discuss the topic in depth, make recommendations and develop guidelines to improve the use of space-based information in disaster-risk management and emergency response.

If you are interested in joining the TAM, please send a short background, résumé or CV and a short indication of your current, planned or possible type of collaboration with Ghana to Mr Coen Bussink ( The deadline for submission is 29 September 2013.

Faro’s All-New Edge ScanArm ES with Enhanced Scanning Technology

By Ivan Leonardi | 14h50, 11 de September de 2013

Faro Faro’s All New Edge ScanArm ES with Enhanced Scanning Technology Faro Technologies announced today it has released the all-new Edge Laser Line Probe ES. The flexibility of the FaroArm® combined with the power of the new Laser Line Probe creates the world’s smallest, lightest, and most affordable contact/non-contact portable measurement system, the Faro Edge ScanArm ES.

The ScanArm ES is the latest advancement in Faro’s Laser Line scanning sensors, featuring Enhanced Scanning Technology (EST). EST is the combination of multiple hardware and software improvements designed to boost performance by improving the ability to scan challenging surfaces. Materials with dark or reflective optical qualities can now be scanned with less effort and without the need for sprays or surface coatings.

“Scanning is becoming a big part of the metrology world and the improved performance of the ScanArm ES minimizes the challenges of capturing data on surfaces with less than ideal optical qualities,” said Orlando Perez, Faro’s Director of Product Management – FaroArm/ScanArm.

New and improved filtering algorithms automatically adjust and optimize the scanning parameters for plastic, metal, or a variety of surface finishes and colors. The new HDR (High Dynamic Range) Mode of the ScanArm ES lets users scan materials with contrasting colors (i.e. black and white) simultaneously.

“Our customers expect quality and innovation from our products and the new ScanArm ES delivers,” said Jay Freeland, President and CEO.

The Faro Edge ScanArm ES is the ideal tool for product development, inspection, and quality control and offers capabilities such as point cloud comparison with CAD, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling.

Mr. Perez concluded, “The ScanArm ES packs a big punch with the smallest form factor on portable arms in the industry and at an excellent price to performance value.”

Exelis delivers first-of-its-kind commercial payload to DigitalGlobe for WorldView-3 satellite

By Ivan Leonardi | 12h39, 11 de September de 2013

101209Worldview02 Exelis delivers first of its kind commercial payload to DigitalGlobe for WorldView 3 satelliteExelis (NYSE: XLS) has delivered an integrated, super-spectral payload consisting of a telescope, sensor and shortwave infrared system for the WorldView-3 satellite. WorldView-3 is the first multipayload, commercial satellite to carry such capabilities, and will allow DigitalGlobe to further expand its imagery product offerings.

“We met additional requirements and delivered the integrated, multimodality system within a tight timeframe,” said Kyle Schmackpfeffer, Exelis Geospatial Systems director of mapping and resource management and space situational awareness. “Meeting DigitalGlobe’s additional requirement for a shortwave infrared (SWIR) subsystem capability one year into the original contract demonstrates our agility and strong program execution.”

The SWIR bands will penetrate haze, fog, smog, dust, smoke, mist and cirrus clouds and allow clearer identification of materials not visible to the human eye. This is a capability that will be very useful in applications for oil, gas and vegetation and for a number of other uses. For example, the shortwave infrared capability will allow oil and gas companies better mineral characterization to build more accurate geological models for drilling.

“WorldView-3 is a strategic next step in DigitalGlobe’s mission to maximize value across an increasing range of customer applications, and the Exelis systems will play a role in helping us meet these goals,” said Dr. Walter Scott, Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer of DigitalGlobe. “We’re thrilled to continue our working relationship with Exelis in developing WorldView-3.”

DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 satellite is scheduled to launch in mid-2014 and will be capable of as good as 0.25 meter resolution. The Exelis telescope and sensors offer new and enhanced applications including mapping; land classifications; disaster preparedness and response; soil and vegetation analysis; geology uses; environmental monitoring; and coastal applications.

Exelis was selected in 2010 to build the imaging system including the panchromatic and visible-near infrared (VNIR) multispectral sensor system and an optical telescope unit. Multispectral shortwave IR was added later to accommodate more robust capability needs and represents the first time SWIR has been available on a commercial satellite.

Exelis has designed and built imaging systems for each of DigitalGlobe’s current satellite constellation, including WorldView-1, WorldView-2, IKONOS, GeoEye-1, GeoEye-2 and QuickBird.
