AIRCRAFT & SENSORS

MISSION SPECIFIC CONFIGURATIONS

At OAR we operate a fleet of professionally maintained, mission specific survey aircraft and sensor payload configurations, suitable for most aerial survey operations. All our aircraft and pilots are FAR part 135 certified and carded under both the Department of Interior (DOI) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS). From aerial wildlife survey’s to large-scale mapping operations, we have to the tools, technology, and expertise to satisfy a wide range of aerial survey needs.

TK-7 EARTHWATCH

The Overwatch Imaging TK-7 is a multi-sensor step-stare mapping system containing three individual cameras: Long Wave Infrared (LWIR, FOV = 14.17 degrees), Near Infrared (NIR, FOV = 16.8 degrees), and Color (RGB, FOV = 16.8 degrees). The TK-7 operates with proprietary software that automatically orthorectifies captured imagery and generates end-user geospatial files that can be readily loaded into any geospatial software package for conversion into any desired finished product. The TK-7 also features on-board Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) analysis software that automatically normalized the data and provides a real-time NDVI output. Captured imagery can be delivered in GeoTiff format as well as individual GIS compatible layers. This combination of sensors and software make the TK-7 a highly versatile mapping system that can be used for a variety of applications, including but not limited to; Wildfire mapping, vegetation mapping, small-scale 3D modeling, NDVI analysis, NDWI analysis, and many more.

L3/HARRIS MX-10

The L3/Harris MX-10 is a gyro-stabilized multispectral imaging system, equipped with a cooled mid-wave infrared (MWIR) sensor, low-light camera, and continuous zoom electro-optical (EO) color camera, laser range finder accurate to within 1-meter, and laser illuminator systems.
