BSF Swissphoto deploys Trimble's Aerial Imaging System
Trimble announced today that BSF Swissphoto has deployed the Trimble AX60 airborne LIDAR system for aerial imaging in its fixed wing aircrafts and helicopters.
BSF Swissphoto will use the system as part of its geodata services portfolio for various wide area and corridor mapping applications.
"After evaluating a variety of airborne LIDAR systems, we selected the Trimble AX60 system for its rugged and compact design, quick installation and reliable system calibration and high-resolution camera," said Roland Stengele, CEO of BSF Swissphoto. "Most importantly, it's an integrated system that allows us to collect data more efficiently and accurately at even higher altitudes with consistent point distribution, making it an ideal solution for providing service in mountainous and topographically challenging areas."
The Trimble AX60 is a versatile airborne imaging system combining a powerful LIDAR with a high-resolution camera that can be operated at up to 15,500 feet above ground level (AGL), which meets the requirements for most aerial survey projects such as wide area mapping, corridor mapping and remote sensing.
The Trimble AX60 can be installed on either fixed wing or rotary aircraft. Pairing the AX60 with Trimble's Inpho suite of photogrammetry and LIDAR processing software provides a complete solution for customers looking to deliver high quality results for a variety of geospatial applications.
