  • The ability to reliably and accurately locate and survey objects without physically occupying them is the key to the productivity of the FLI-MAP{trademark} laser mapping system. This advanced technology system incorporates OTF Kinematic GPS, GPS-aided attitude, and a reflectorless laser range-finding sensor into a complete remote sensing survey platform. The FLI-MAP system is a helicopter-based scanning system capable of collecting up to 8000 geo-referenced data points per second. Key parameters of existing electric transmission lines are calculated based upon the geographic data collected by FLI-MAP, meteorological data, and power flow data collected during the survey. The affect on conductor clearancesmore » is analyzed under varying conductor temperatures, power flow, and meteorological conditions to determine the ultimate capacity of the existing transmission line. This paper presents the FLI-MAP system, the technologies it exploits, and the use of such a system for electric transmission line corridor surveys and analyses. 4 refs., 5 figs.« less
  • Airborne remote sensing as an important remote sensing technique has its great advantage and indispensability in the remote sensing system. By giving full play to its importance , the airborne remote sensing technologies and system have been developed to meet the needs of environmental studies, resources exploration and also of the research and development of sciences and technologies in China at recent years. The airborne remote sensing system developed in China has include the sensors system, technical support system and application system etc.. The sensors developed for airborne platform are covered wide range of electromagnetic spectrum from UV, VS, IRmore » to microwave regions. The optical, optic-electronic, multispectral and hyperspectral systems have been developed, operated and successfully used for multidiscipline application, while the airborne synthetic aperture radar and other microwave remote sensing system are also developed and used in many areas, especially in all-weather condition. The great success has been found for disasters monitoring and also in case of emergency response. 1 fig., 4 tabs.« less
  • In 1992, the OSU Center for Airborne Environmental Analysis undertook a joint effort with Freseman Engineering to develop the ADAMS{copyright} (Airborne Data Acquisition and Management System, presented at 1st International Airborne Remote Sensing Conference and Exhibition) in parallel to its scientific research mission with NASA, Federal Agencies, and private sector of remote sensing industry. A new system called the Universal Multi-Purpose Airborne Remote Sensing System (UniMARS) is currently being developed by the authors to accommodate the increasing needs of diversified functionality required to conduct complicated scientific mission or commercial applications. The UniMARS integrates the embedded system controller, PC-104 form factormore » microcomputer, the RC Time Code-based video imaging system with the existing GPS and GIS technologies into a portable package weights less than 4 kg. The multi-function control system allows the research scientist or pilot to view either a moving map or the target image through a head-mounted display. The system also includes a high performance thermal video camera and the laser range finder for surface mapping. The flexible data acquisition system is accompanied by a sophisticated data processing and management system which include the support of mobile computing capability and client server database capability. The design of UniMARS allows the continuous availability of frequent, relatively low-cost data acquisition opportunities for carrying out near Earth observation, environmental monitoring, or other environmental experiments by means of using different aircraft platform. It also provide an excellent solution to ensure the data quality and integrity throughout the data acquisition and processing procedures. 4 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • The modular airborne instrumentation system being developed will allow flexibility in the choice of instruments by standardizing mountings, power supplies, and sampling modes. The objective is to make it possible to perform aerial surveys from chartered aircraft that have not been adapted in a more than superficial manner. It will also allow the experimenter to tailor his choice of instruments to the specific problem. Since the equipment will have a stand-alone capability, it can be applied to other problems such as long-term unattended use at remote locations or in toxic or otherwise hazardous environments. A description of the system ismore » given.« less
