Icaros and TeAx Announce an Integrated Drone Mapping Solution

31 July 2017

Icaros Inc., provider of aerial imaging software, announced that version 5.1 of OneButton™ Standard and Professional image processing software for unmanned aerial systems (drones) contains advanced algorithms to process Thermal IR images from Radiometric microbolometer sensors.

Icaros’ OneButton family for drone image processing lets end users easily and automatically generate geospatially precise, fully orthorectified 2D maps and 3D models from frame-based aerial imaging systems. Originally engineered for manned aircraft sensors, the OneButton software has been modified to accommodate the unique collection conditions of unmanned aerial systems (UAS). OneButton 5.1 enables users to define Radiometric parameters to precisely post-process ThermalCapture RAW readings into precise temperature maps (i.e., an accurately corrected thermal Orthomosaic).

OneButton radiometric post-processing of FLIR Core-TeAx ThermalCapture sensor data includes the ability to adjust the following parameters:

  • Emissivity
  • Atmospheric transmission and Temperature
  • Background temperature, and
  • Temperature Shift

These features enable TeAx ThermalCapture users to process imagery into high-fidelity thermal orthomosaics – which are crucial for professional industrial applications like Precision Agriculture, Heat Loss Detection, and Solar Panel Monitoring.

OneButton automatically processes raw raster imagery with onboard GPS/IMU data to stitch the individual scenes together into seamless, color-balanced orthomosaics meeting photogrammetric precision and quality standards. Outputs include digital elevation models (DEMs), true color 3D point clouds, and multispectral mosaics – all ready for ingestion directly into GIS and analytics software environments.
