Vricon unveils new solution at GEOINT 2018: Vricon Precision 3D Registration (P3DR)

Precise, accurate, georegistered GEOINT data for analytics and visualization—at a global scale

McLean, Virginia, April 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vricon is pleased to announce that it is unveiling the next in a series of GEOINT solutions — Vricon Precision 3D Registration (P3DR) — at this year’s GEOINT 2018 Symposium in Tampa, Fla. Vricon P3DR is a software suite designed to automatically georegister imagery, regardless of collection platform, against the most accurate 3D geospatial foundation available, The Globe in 3D.

P3DR can be implemented as a real-time processing workflow for imagery feeds without the need for GPS location, heading information, or ground control points.

“While we’ve always been able to perform georegistration of individual data sets using our 3D models as an accurate foundation, Vricon P3DR takes this capability to a whole new level,” said Magnus Brege, Vricon CEO. “Our users now have multiple options for where and when they can automatically georegister their FMV or other imagery sources in real-time and at an enterprise scale.”

Precisely locating geospatial data from different sources is a persistent challenge for the geospatial community. Imagery data is collected at different times, on different platforms, and with different look angles, sensor characteristics, and raw pointing accuracies. High-off-nadir Full Motion Video (FMV) is particularly challenging, given the relatively narrow field of view, high resolution, and often poor initial pointing accuracy of the sensors.

All of these complexities yield data sets that are significantly misaligned with each other and the real world. The alignment is often off by tens or even hundreds of meters. As a result, users are unable to automatically correlate multi-sensor data, making it difficult to fully leverage collection assets on critical targets. This also creates additional work for analysts, who spend hours trying to align various image sources. Vricon P3DR software — enabled by Vricon’s Globe in 3D — provides a way to quickly and accurately georegister data anywhere on the globe.

Vricon P3DR provides critical accuracy enhancements to other ISR sources, enabling GEOINT data to be used to precisely direct resources to any specific location on the planet. Vricon P3DR software builds off Vricon’s industry-leading Globe in 3D to support analysts and warfighters with:

  • 0.5-meter resolution foundational 3D context
  • Absolute accuracy of 3 meters or better in all dimensions (x, y, and z)
  • Global coverage — even in denied areas

Vricon products and services provide ready solutions for military, intelligence, telecommunications, and emergency response needs, to include:

  • GPS-denied navigation
  • Sensor fusion
  • Targeting
  • Situational awareness

GEOINT attendees can learn more about Vricon P3DR at booth #847 in the GEOINT Exhibit Hall. Vricon also will present a Lightning Talk at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, 24 April, at the Innovation Corner.

South Korea finishes agenda for inter-Korea summit

South Korean President Moon Jae-in hosted a meeting to finalize plans for the inter-Korea summit next Friday in Panmunjom truce village, the South Korean presidential office said on Sunday.

The meeting was attended by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon and security chief Chung Eui Yong, one of the two officials who met North Korean President Kim Jong-un in March.

South Korea said Monday it has turned off the loudspeakers blasting propaganda across the militarized border with North Korea to demonstrate its goodwill ahead of the historic summit.

US President Donald Trump said Sunday on Twitter that the North Korean nuclear crisis is far from a conclusion and only time will tell. The statement came a day after the North pledged to halt nuclear tests, close a nuclear plant, and pursue economic development and peace.
