SOLUTION

As a system integrator, AS Vision Limited is always looking for the optimal technology and workflow for accurate aerial surveying from UAVs, and Direct Georeferencing technology by Applanix is the perfect match.

The AMC SS (Single and Simple) camera from AS Vision is a fully calibrated mapping camera powered by Applanix APX-15 UAV GNSS-Inertial System. With a total weight less than 1Kg, the AMC SS features a 42 MegaPixel camera for low altitude applications using rotary and fixed wing aircraft. As a geometric calibrated camera, it is suitable for traditional photogrammetry projects up to 1:500 with minimum amount of Ground Control Points.

Featuring Direct Georeferencing technology, the AMC SS can:

  • generate orthophotos rapidly in remote areas without
    Ground Control Points
  •  provide an optimal workflow in challenging
    environments such as landslides
  • create 3D models for search and rescue and damage
    assessments
  • create detailed information for hazard planning and
    prevention
