Our know-how is highly relevant for satellite, aerial or UAV imagery, we have expert knowledge of sensors & image processing.
Sensor geometry & image processing
Our area of greatest depth and expertise is geometric handling of data, from instrument model and focal plane image all the way to an orthorectified and projected image. Our experience in image processing ranges from SAR to optical high-resolution. We offer techniques for pattern recognition, cloud detection, radiative transfer modelling, image compression, co-registration of images.
GIS & Mapping
We integrate third-party GIS solutions for various applications and handle challenging security, mobility and data fusion issues. We can deliver generic tools for large scale map production and dissemination.
GIS integration & business applications
Magellium has a recognised experience in the development and the maintenance of business applications in various sectors (i.e. transportation, utilities, energy, security…). Depending on the project context and according technical or economical criteria, we will recommend the most appropriate third party GIS solutions (i.e. ArcGIS ESRI or open source) . Our developments rely on the reuse of qualified and mastered components.
Our expertise covers the whole SDI (Spatial Data Infrastucture) life cycle from open source intelligence (OSINT) to emergency mapping production.
OSINT collection and analytics
We carry out generic or specific GeoINT studies for security or environmental purposes on various African and Middle Eastern countries on the basis of a large qualified OSINT collection dealing with more that 50 subjects of interest such as protected areas, land cover, borders, geopolitics, tourism…. Data integration and dissemination are done in standard geographic formats such as DFDD.
SDI life cycle monitoring
For many stakeholders, monitoring the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) life cycle and possible deterioration has political, strategic and financial value. Based on open source information, we provide solutions to decide when new sources acquisitions are necessary to update map assets.
Rapid map production
We provide solutions for rapid mapping production over wide areas in constrained time (days to weeks). Our offer is based on the knowledge of open sources availability, a strong partnership with the main EO operators, a limited but highly reactive inhouse technical & human production capacity and a network of subcontractors, regularly controlled and evaluated.
Computer Vision & Robotics
Our expertise in geometry and image processing is valuable in many robotics and opto-electronics applications ranging from 2D/3D pattern recognition to vision-based localisation.
Object and pattern recognition
Based on high level skills in imaging technologies (sensors, image classification, video, data compression, algorithmics), we develop image processing chains for optoelectronics applications involving passive or active sensors for maritime surveillance, drone image acquisition, object detection…
