Teledyne Geospatial announced the delivery of an Optech Galaxy PRIME to Fototerra.

Serving both North and South America the aerospace and service company specializes in airborne remote sensing services, geographic data acquisition, high-resolution photogrammetry, hyperspectral data acquisition, and GIS applications. This is Fototerra’s second Galaxy system for use across multiple applications, including forest inventory, agriculture, urban mapping, and surveying carbon mapping of archeological sites in the Amazon region.

The compact all-terrain, all landcover Galaxy PRIME delivers projects with higher productivity than any other system on the market. Its PulseTRAK technology enables a continuous operating envelope that can accommodate high relief terrain with no data gaps or loss of density across multipulse transition zones. SwathTRAK technology can reduce operating costs by as much as 50% by maintaining fixed width flightlines for consistent point density and fewer flightlines in variable terrain. Fototerra’s plans include high-resolution mapping in urban city cores, for forest and environmental monitoring in the Amazon.
