Image Data Acquisition
Our staff has operated various aerial sensors since 1994 and has strong expertise in domestic and international mission planning, data collection and post processing.
Tactical Response Airborne Classification System (TRACS)
The TRACS system is the second-generation aerial mapping system designed for oil spill mapping and response, yet ready for use in many different applied remote sensing applications such as fire mapping, habitat mapping and animal surveys. TRACS is a portable, single-unit-design system, integrating a 3-CCD, multispectral RGB digital camera with a thermal infrared imaging camera and a high accuracy GPS-Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The cameras are equipped with special wide-angle lenses to increase the imaging swath width partnered with specially developed acquisition and processing software to both correct for lens distortion and automatically georeference each image frame to provide highly accurate geospatial data. The system provides 12-bit imagery at 20cm – 4m spatial resolution. Being compact and portable the system is ready-made to be flown on most any aircraft of opportunity and can be utilized for both Common Operating Picture (COP) and tactical use. Ocean Imaging owns multiple TRACS units staged in coastal cities of the U.S. Three of which are operated by the Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC). Read More →
Ocean Imaging and SeaView Fishing operates our own HRPT AVHRR satellite downlink for AVHRR, as well as acquire and process near-real-time data from the MODIS, VIIRS, Landsat 7, Landsat 8, RapidEye, Sentinel 2A & 2B as well as various altimeters. We provide operational image product support for end-users ranging from researchers and fishing vessels to federal and state agencies. We have expertise in processing and analysis of virtually every type of satellite data including visible multispectral, thermal, SAR and altimeter. We carefully evaluate the cost-vs-utility of each data option for a particular application to ensure the best results at the lowest cost. Read More →
