Merrick & Company Selects GSI TerraPix Imaging Systems for Corridor Mapping Print E-mail
Written by Geospatial Systems   
Thursday, 23 September 2010

Rochester, NY – Geospatial Systems Inc. (GSI) is pleased to announce the successful delivery and deployment of multiple TerraPix Imaging Systems for Merrick & Company’s new Helicopter-Acquired Data Products and Services platform. The systems include KCM-16 and KCM-MS camera modules, which are co-mounted alongside an Optech Orion C200 light detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensor in a Eurocopter AStar 350 BA helicopter. The KCM-16s provide high resolution oblique imagery in forward and aft orientations; and the KCM-MS enables the production of high fidelity CIR imagery.

Matt Bethel, Manager of Systems Engineering at Merrick & Company said, “We are very satisfied with the purchase of our three TerraPix Imaging System sensors from Geospatial Systems Inc. We chose these camera systems because of GSI’s proven ability to integrate multiple airborne sensors together and store accurate GPS/IMU time-tagged information for each image. The GSI hardware, sensor performance, and data quality has yielded a superior system for our helicopter mapping needs.”

Max Elbaz, CEO of GSI said, "We are very pleased that a leading company in the surveying and mapping industry such as Merrick & Company has chosen our TerraPix Imaging Systems for their latest airborne platform. Their selection demonstrates the flexibility and benefits of the TerraPix platform which allows GSI to customize specific imaging configurations to address varied market needs”.
