Direct Geo-referencing Progress

Aeroptic, LLC, a Jacobs Company

The Aeroptic 2.0 system received a major boost in performance in January 2015, as we discovered a significant source of error in one of the most common GPS/IMU timing synchronization methods for non-ITAR IMUs. With no fix in sight from the manufacturer, the engineers created an automated tool to remove the error from datasets.  This runs in about 15 minutes on the Aeroptic GeoProcessor (or 30 minutes on most workstation grade computers), and removes an error from each dataset that is up to 0.50m! This feature will be added to the next release of the Aeroptic sensor control software, and provided free to all customers.
