Pictometry Delivers Canadian Research Drone Imagery via CONNECT™

Press Release:

EagleView, parent company to Pictometry, has become an acknowledged leader in the use of UAS for various applications of remote sensing, including insurance, construction, utility and infrastructure inspection work.

  • Bothell, Washington (PRWEB) June 17, 2015

EagleView Technology Corporation, a leading technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Pictometry International Corp., delivered Canadian imagery via drones through their CONNECT™ platform. The research and testing were completed in collaboration with Avyon using their Microdrones MD4-1000 drone.

Video and still photography footage captured during the testing shows the ability to not only obtain intelligent, geo-referenced imagery but also process and analyze the unmanned aircraft system (UAS)-captured imagery in Pictometry’s cloud-based viewing and analytical software, CONNECTExplorer™. Video of the imagery and the resulting ability to extract data through CONNECT analytical tools can be viewed athttp://www.propertydrone.org/research.php.

EagleView, parent company to Pictometry, has become an acknowledged leader in the use of UAS for various applications of remote sensing, including insurance, construction, utility and infrastructure inspection work. As founding members of the Property Drone Consortium, EagleView and Pictometry continue to work on many fronts and markets to obtain and provide research and development for key UAS processes and technologies. The ongoing goal is the use of UAS to capture intelligent imagery for property inspection.

Pictometry is continuing research experimentation in Canada as the company waits for final approvals for specific drone research exemptions in the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration 333 exemptions are pending which would allow the companies to continue the research of image capture, collision avoidance, image processing and overall imagery and data delivery for workflow integration.

“We are platform agnostic,” stated Chris Barrow, president and CEO of EagleView Technology Corporation. “Whether it is a drone, phone or airplane we feel our core competency is camera and sensor systems and the technologies of processing and delivering high-resolution, intelligent imagery that easily allows for the extraction of highly accurate data. We are focused on that and working with drone manufacturers such as Avyon to make it happen.”

Press Release 6wresearch- Apr 13, 2015

Introduction of "Make in India" Campaign Coupled With Increasing Defense Spending to Drive India's Emerging Drone Market in the Coming Years - 6Wresearch

New Delhi, India, April 13, 2015 (Newswire) - India first introduced its long range line of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) / drones in early 1990s for surveillance and reconnaissance activities. India’s drone market growth is buoyed by several factors such as increasing terrorist activities, border security, rising defense budget & FDI, favorable government policies on import, and increased domestic manufacturing campaign for defense aircrafts & military equipment. After China and Japan, India is emerging as one of the key market for drones in Asia-Pacific region. India is amongst one the largest importers for defense equipment worldwide. After the introduction of “Make in India” campaign by the Government of India during 2014, India is forecast to embark the manufacturing of next generation defense equipment in the coming years on account of growing FDIs in defense sector and growing partnerships.

"India Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)/Drone Market (2015-2021)" provides in-depth analysis with 74 figures and 13 tables. 6Wresearch announces the release of most anticipated "India UAV/drone Market (2015-2021)"

According to 6Wresearch, India UAV/Drone Market is anticipated to reach $421 million by 2021. Mini/micro drones are witnessing growth with its deployment in both military and law enforcement applications. In India, mini drones have been categorized into three types i.e. quadcopter, hexacopter and fixed-wing drones, where quadcopter accounts for majority of volume shipment. Fixed-wing drones are medium range drones and are primarily being used for military application. India and U.S. would jointly manufacture AeroVironment’s “Raven Drone” (a medium range drone) ranging from 5mi and above from 2015 onwards in Bengaluru based production facility. On the contrary, quadcopter & hexacopter drones are short range drones, which have been used in applications pertaining to law enforcement and events. Before Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s (DGCA) ban on the use of drones for civil application in 2014 it was largely deployed for applications related to events and photography. 

“India’s mini/micro drone segment to witness increase in adoption after the expected DGCA regulation in 2014. The regulation would drive the adoption retail and hospitality applications” said Prijo Samuel, Senior Research Analyst at 6Wresearch.

In India’s drone market, Israel is the largest supplier for drone systems & equipment, primarily for military application, followed by Taiwan, Japan, China, South Korea and U.S. India has already attained Israel’s Heron UAV (Long Range Drones – Medium Altitude & Long Endurance). India also owns “Israel’s Searcher I & II, Defence Research & Development Organisation’s (DRDO) Rustom-1 & Rustom-H and DRDO Nishant.

“India Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)/Drone Market (2015–2021)” provides in-depth analysis with 74 figures and 13 tables. 6Wresearch announces the release of most anticipated “India UAV/drone Market (2015-2021)” report covering UAV/drone types, range types, applications, market trends and upcoming projects. The report estimates and forecast market by UAV/drone types such as Mini–UAVs (Low Altitude-Low Endurance), Medium Range UAVs (Low Altitude-Medium Endurance), Long Range UAVs (Medium Altitude-Long Endurance), and Long Range UAVs (High Altitude-Long Endurance). The report also segregates market into different range types for Mini-UAVs (under 3mi & 4mi-10mi) and Medium Range UAVs (5mi-10mi & 11mi-20mi).
