Optech Acquires Second Photogrammetric Camera Company

GSI has a recognized track record in the design and manufacture of ruggedized, high-precision, metric imaging systems for airborne applications, including many implementations with Optech’s ALTM lidar systems. TerraPix, which includes a range of metric sensors, is a common platform for delivering custom solutions tailored to its customer’s Airborne Survey and Mapping, Asset Management, and Tactical Intelligence Reconnaissance and Surveillance (ISR) requirements. The TerraPix DGX architecture provides camera control, inertial navigation system integration and image processing capabilities; and enables single and multi-sensor solutions that combine visible, multispectral and infrared modules into integrated payloads. Optech’s clients will now benefit from the full integration of GSI’s TerraPix systems with Optech’s world-class solutions.

“We are very pleased to join Optech’s growing global organization,” says Max Elbaz, President and CEO of GSI. “The integration of GSI imaging expertise with Optech lidar imaging expertise and their worldwide market leadership will increase the value we provide to our customers across vertical markets, and will strengthen our capabilities to further support the evolving needs of our common global customer base.”

GSI’s current product line will be maintained and will evolve to meet the needs of Optech’s diverse client base. Leveraging GSI’s existing engineering staff, GSI’s Rochester, NY location will become Optech’s base for imaging systems development.  The location will also be expanded to serve as the base for U.S. sales and support for Optech’s complete product lines for airborne, terrestrial and mobile applications. Mr. Elbaz will continue in his current position, and will lead Optech’s expansion in the U.S. commercial and ISR markets.
