Remote GeoSystems, Inc. and Chesapeake Bay Helicopters, Inc. are pleased to announce the successful implementation of the geoDVR Gen2 with a FLIR Corona 350 Gimbal Video Camera System on an MD helicopter for airborne utility line inspections.
“The geoDVR offers tremendous advantages over our previous video recording system,” says Chesapeake Bay Helicopters CEO and co-owner manager Oleg Bulanov. “The geoDVR is a fraction of the size and weight, it records all three video channels to a single SDD, and offers user-friendly multi-stream video monitoring. The in-mission GPS logging and post-flight reporting software means CBH can provide our clients with vital inspection information in hours, not weeks.”
The geoDVR Gen2 is an advanced “plug and play” DVR for recording multiple channels of geo-referenced High-Definition Full Motion Video (gFMV) in airborne and mobile mapping environments. It is ideally suited for professional utility/pipeline inspection, ISR and law enforcement applications that utilize multi-sensor gyro-stabilized gimbal video cameras.
Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will use the geoDVR with their FLIR Corona 350 to perform helicopter-based electric utility inspections with High-Definition color (EO), Infrared (IR) and Corona (UV) video as well as high-resolution oblique still photos.
Videos, photos, points of interest and audio notes collected with the geoDVR are compatible with Remote GeoSystems LineVision suite of GIS project mapping and reporting software. LineVision allows for simple desktop and browser-based playback, analysis and project reporting utilizing the Esri ArcGIS Platform, Google Earth, Bing Maps and PLS-CADD.
