Tetracam and Pix4D
Forge Global Alliance
Improve Farming Through Remote Sensing
Chatsworth, California and Lausanne,
Switzerland — August 21, 2014—Tetracam and Pix4D
today jointly announced a global alliance that combines the
technological strengths of both companies to improve farming by
means of airborne remote sensing. The alliance is only the latest
in a series of strategic partnerships and fast-paced product
releases that typify companies producing systems for the
rapidly-evolving unmanned aircraft system marketplace.
Tetracam manufactures multi-spectral imaging
systems that monitor visible and near-infrared radiation reflected
from agricultural crops and forestlands to spot threats to
vegetation from disease, insects, weeds, water shortages, or poor
crop management. Most
recently the company introduced cameras that simultaneously look
up and down in order to measure reflected radiation as an exact
fraction of incident radiation in order to expose subtle secrets
hidden in plant bio-chemistry.
This month Tetracam will be releasing the ADC
Snap multi-spectral imaging system.
This camera uses ultra-high speed snap-sensor
machine-vision technology to capture instantaneous images of the
ground that are absolutely devoid of camera blur or artifacts that
would normally result from aircraft roll, pitch and yaw.
develops and distributes software that allows users to convert
thousands of aerial images taken from manned and unmanned aircraft
into two dimensional ortho-mosaics and 3D surface models and point
clouds with survey-grade accuracy with centimeter-level precision.
The software is unique among such packages as it is highly
automated with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.
extends the power of Tetracam multi-spectral images by enabling
users to derive NDVI, SAVI and less-common vegetation indices used
by plant scientists. In
most cases, Pix4Dmapper software removes the need for aircraft
gimbals and even lens corrective calibration.
its partnership with Pix4D, Tetracam has become a Pix4D reseller
offering reduced prices on Tetracam cameras when bundled with
company has set up a special technical support engineer to deal
with questions from the perspective of the Tetracam system user.
The two companies are collaborating on software integration
to allow simple importing of images and seamless production of 2D
and 3D ortho-mosaics.
and Tetracam have already collaborated on presentation of an
in-depth 3-day workshop for thirty students in August.
The class featured instruction on Tetracam cameras and
Pix4Dmapper by experts on the hardware and software from the two
companies. The class
presented instruction on remote sensing of vegetation by famed
research scientist, Dr. Dar Roberts of UC Santa Barbara, and
practical lessons on integrating and using Tetracam hardware and
Pix4D software presented by Scott Brown and Jeff Parisse of CalUAS
and Tetracam have tentatively scheduled another 3-day workshop for
December 1 through December 3, 2014.
