iOne STKA® (iOne Sensor Tool Kit Architecture)

The Visual Intelligence iOne STKA is a software/COTS-hardware based architecture from which many different multi-purpose aerial imaging sensors can be built. The iOne STKA provides a modular and scalable hardware/software foundation that is field-configurable to deploy a variety of high-performing 2D-3D geoimaging sensors to collect high-quality color or infrared NADIR, oblique, or video imagery as well as LiDAR and thermal data – using the same sensor system. Image providers are no longer limited to using monolithic, single purpose sensors. With the iOne STKA technology, they can have a modular multipurpose sensor platform for surveillance, professional metric surveying and mapping.

Many Different Configurations from One Sensor

The iOne STKA software/hardware solution is the basis for the iOne SRK (Sensor Reconfiguration Kit) and supports many different sensor configurations, and image providers can also co-mount and co-register (CoCo®) with any other passive or active sensors in a very tightly coupled, geo-referenced system, giving them the ability to collect and fuse different types of imagery in one pass, and produce low-cost, extremely accurate, high-resolution imagery.

Also available for the UVS/UAV and mobile/handheld markets, the iOne STKA lets the same unmanned system and the same software be used for different array configurations or sizes, allowing rapid deployment of multi-purpose sensor configurations on fixed wing aircraft, helicopters, UAV’s, terrestrial devices, and other miniaturized mobile applications.

The iOne STKA is backed by numerous patents and Visual Intelligence technology, resulting in a very powerful and scalable sensor foundation. The patented iOne STKA arched retinal camera array, commercially known as ARCA®, positions adjacent sensors into a compound array and performs like a single camera to produce a low-cost, highly-accurate, radometrically and geometrically correct metric image with superior resolution and quality.

With ONE reliable end-to-end digital sensor system solution for MANY applications, image providers can grow their business, enhance their products, and maximize their return.
