Mapping Systems

Only Collins Aerospace offers you high-clarity imaging and precision UAV flight control that works together with a seamless solution -- so your data-capture capability can always go where you need it most. 

Current methods utilize manned aircraft flying at high altitudes; sometimes in poor weather or over dangerous terrain. By utilizing the Piccolo Autopilot and low SWaP TASE imaging sensor, you can reduce field and flight time, and at a much lower cost than traditional methods.


TASE systems utilize High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC). H.265 has a significantly higher compression ratio which preserves more of the original image than H.264 and can save around 50% of the bit rate. Benefits are less storage, bandwidth, and an increase in transmission speed. 

EO & IR Imaging Sensors

Our EO and IR Imaging sensors collect and deliver higher quality video imagery faster - which gives you an advantage over your competition to win projects. This imagery can then bo mosaiced, warped to terrain, and geo-referenced by Collins Aerospace software tools. This final image can then be displayed on a 3D map, providing situational awareness within a short timeframe. Mosaiced mapping functionality provides Google Earth / GIS format maps for near-real-time analysis.
