The Panorama Service offers advanced high performance panorama generation to support SCi-X, optimised for Collins Aerospace's DB-110 and MS-110 sensor mission data. Modern airborne systems are capable of capturing coverage of large geographic areas in a single imaging pass. Screening individual image frames can often degrade the efficiency of analysis. To best visualise large areas, SCi-X can display a seamless single image for the entire scene.
Panorama images can be generated from an imagery scene containing small numbers of frames to an imagery scene containing many hundreds of frames. A scalable clustered processing solution provides the capability of processing very long imaging runs in a very short amount of time.
The imagery is corrected and the exposure and contrast levels are balanced across the entire image scene, whilst retaining the fidelity of the original input imagery. The performance of the Panorama Service’s processing engine can be optimised to meet customer throughput performance needs. SCi-X can display a single image within a few seconds, dependent on the hardware resources available for the Panorama Service.
The Panorama Service and panorama stitchers are both licenced features of the SCi-Toolset.
