Saab, DigitalGlobe partner for 3D mapping
Saab has announced that it will partner with DigitalGlobe, a leading global provider of high-resolution earth imagery solutions, to deliver the next-generation of Saab’s Vricon Rapid 3D Mapping System.
The agreement will see DigitalGlobe’s satellite imagery collections and extensive image archive integrated into the Vricon solution, enabling faster creation of highly-accurate, photo-realistic 3D maps of specific areas of interest.
The Vricon system automatically and rapidly generates high resolution 3D data based on imagery from satellites, UAVs and manned aircraft. Vricon is built for integration in additional systems and applications, such as intelligence reporting, mission planning and rehearsal, training and simulation as well as coordinate extraction and georeferencing of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) sensors.
Fredrik Rosenqvist, President of Vricon Systems at Saab, said: ‘This partnership between Saab and DigitalGlobe represents a significant step forward in the geo intelligence community. It provides our customers with on-time access to high resolution 3D data based on satellite imagery.’
