Heritage / Archaeology

Protecting our heritage

The human heritage is in danger. Armed conflicts, looting, urbanization, natural disasters are destroying the remains of our past cultural heritage. It is important to save the memories of these past structures to preserve the history of our civilzations.

In order to do so, we need technologies that allows to detect, map, and create digital clones of the remains of this heritage to preserve their memory and allow studies in the future.

Digitizing Structures

Mapping Sites of Interest

Detecting Burried Structures

Aerial acquisition systems such are airplanes or helicopters provides great tools to allow the 3D reconstruction and mapping of archaeological sites. However these tools are extremely expensive for these applications, and can’t be operated in remote areas of the world.

While the techniques required to perform these preservation tasks exists they are neither financially nor operationnaly adequate.

Our Solution

Long-Range UAV system

The AVEM system allows great productivity over your survey areas. Given its range and endurance it is capable of covering large portions of the area in short periods of time. Equipped with a high resolution camera it is the perfect tool for photogrammetric 3D reconstruction of the terrain.
Small and lightweight, it can be deployed anywhere in the world without the need for supporting infrastructure.

Typically, the system is capable of mapping up to 400ha per hours of flight at 3cm of ground resolution.

Photogrammetric reconstruction

Using our High-Definition photgraphic sensors – either in the visible spectrum or in the near-infrared spectrum -, it is possible to reconstruct accurate 3D models and orthophotos of the terrain.

Thermal imagery can be used to detect burried structures in the ground and reveal unknown structures.

Our PPK post-processing tools allows an absolute accuracy of a few centimeters on the geolocation of the pictures.

The resolution can be as low as 1cm and final absolute accuracy down to 4cm.
