Wantman Group Inc. has completed a 9-square-mile UAV project using SimActive’s Correlator3D. Initially meant to be acquired using manned aircraft, the dataset comprised 3,056 images with full processing completed in less than two days.

Wantman Group,is a Florida consulting firm founded in 1972 to provide a comprehensive range of infrastructure services.

“You might think a UAS is not the most efficient way to cover such a large area,” said Eric Andelin, UAS program manager at Wantman. “However, if time is a factor, a UAS on-site becomes more efficient than an airplane in a hangar. For such large projects, SimActive is the way to go for efficient processing.”

“Wantman has the expertise to acquire data using both manned aircraft and UAV,” said Philippe Simard, president of SimActive. “Correlator3D allows users the flexibility to rapidly process data, regardless of acquisition platform.”
