China releases the civilian market report drones

By Deyse Delamura | 17h51, 22 de September de 2015

Increasing maturity in supporting facilities of industrial chains and falling costs of all types of hardware have created favorable conditions for the development of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in China. In 2014, the Chinese civil UAV market was worth about RMB400 million, and is expected to swell to RMB1.45 billion by 2020, driven by demands from farming, patrolling, and logistics.

74617 300x196 China releases the civilian market report dronesCivil UAVs can be divided into industrial grade and consumer grade, with industrial applications including mainly agricultural and forestal plant protection, pipeline inspection, and power line inspection. The industrial-grade UAVs can be used in disaster prevention and inspection, geology and meteorology, and urban planning, with tremendous room for growth. As to consumer-grade UAVs, the drone equipped with Gopro for aerial photography (represented by DJ-Innovations or DJI) is growing rapidly, and relevant companies in the industry are avidly courted in capital markets.

As civil UAVs gain more and more attention, the industry grows more competitive. There are by far more than 200 enterprises and institutions engaged in UAVs in China, which can generally be divided into four categories:

1- State-owned enterprises and institutions represented by Aviation Industry Corporation of China and China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, which primarily specialize in R&D of military UAVs, and partly get involved in dual-use or civil UAVs (mainly industrial UAVs);

2- Private enterprises represented by DJI, Ehang, ZERO TECH, and XAIRCRAFT, which are driven by market demand and focus on consumer UAVs;

3- Listed enterprises represented by SUNWARD, Shandong Mining Machinery Group, Zongshen Power, and Loncin Motor, which don’t take UAVs as their main products but participate in R&D of UAVs via acquisitions or establishing of new companies;

4- Other copycat private enterprises with no core technology, poor innovation capability, and gaining profits completely by virtue of market response and cost control.

SimActive logo AeroVironment Chooses SimActive’s Correlator3DSimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, is pleased to announce that AeroVironment has selected Correlator3D™ for post-processing UAV imagery.

“We required an advanced photogrammetry solution to process large datasets for pipeline mapping and multispectral data,” said Joe Mohos, Principal Engineer at AeroVironment. “Correlator3D™ met these requirements.”

“SimActive is proud to have one of the largest UAV makers in the world using Correlator3D™,” said Dr Philippe Simard, President of SimActive. “Their use of the software reinforces Correlator3D™ as the professional solution to a wide-range of applications.”

For a live demonstration at ASPRS UAS Symposium (September 29 – 30, Reno, Nevada), please visit booth 315, or visit booth 35 at GeoSmart Asia 2015 (September 29 – October 1, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia). Alternatively, send an email to sales@simactive.com.

Trimble Transforms Satellite Data into Intelligence with its New Remote Sensing Suite

By Izabela Prates | 11h23, 22 de September de 2015

Trimble Transforms Satellite Data Trimble Transforms Satellite Data into Intelligence with its New Remote Sensing SuiteTrimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today a new software solution, the Trimble® Remote Sensing Suite. The new software suite enables geospatial professionals to efficiently extract high-quality information from satellite imagery for environmental, urban planning, agriculture, oil and gas, mining and engineering applications. The Remote Sensing Suite is a powerful combination of Inpho® SATMaster module for satellite imagery processing and eCognition® software for object-based feature extraction.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2015, the world’s largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

Quickly extracting relevant and accurate information from large satellite data sets can transform work processes for better decision making,” said Alain Samaha, business area director of GIS and Software for Trimble’s Geospatial Division. “Our new remote sensing package combines highly accurate image processing with leading satellite image analysis capabilities to create an end-to-end data to intelligence solution.

Satellite Imaging Software Suite Optimizes Big Data Analysis

Trimble’s Remote Sensing Suite combines the capabilities of the new Inpho SATMaster module and eCognition software. SATMaster streamlines the workflow to process satellite-based imagery and deliver high-quality results. Through satellite triangulation, geospatial professionals can generate digital surface and terrain models from overlapping satellite scenes, providing a rich model of the real world. These models can be used to quickly generate terrain-corrected orthophotos and continuous, seamless mosaics over large project areas. The models and imagery can be easily combined within eCognition software for the automated extraction of GIS-ready layers using powerful object-based image analysis. Professionals can create high-quality, valuable information in a streamlined workflow – saving time and operation costs.

Enhanced Information Extraction with Change Detection

To enhance decision making, eCognition Essentials software now supports time-based analysis for imagery and GIS data. The new capabilities allow remote sensing and GIS professionals to determine imagery changes over time or relative to GIS layers, supporting applications such as vegetation change, deforestation or urban planning. Users can efficiently produce change information to export directly as a raster or as a new GIS layer.

Customizable for Various Applications

To maximize flexibility, the new software suite is available in different configurations to fit application and professional needs. For applications such as environmental mapping and monitoring landscape changes, the base suite provides a streamlined, easy-to-use workflow to efficiently analyze satellite images and extract spatial data. For more advanced applications, such as monitoring planning permits and vegetative clearances, geospatial professionals can leverage the full capabilities of eCognition software, which enables sophisticated image analysis and updating of GIS layers.

With satellite imagery becoming an important component of a geospatial professionals’ workflow, Trimble is taking another step to combine and enhance its existing portfolio to allow customers to be even more productive and efficient.
