PCI Geomatics Software Supports KOMPSAT-3 Sensor

“We are very pleased with the great effort of PCI Geomatics,” said Dr. TaeByeong CHAE, Head of the Satellite information Proliferation Team at KARI. “With this new and improved solution, KOMPSAT-3 images will be more easily accessible and useful to the public and commercial users around the globe,” he added.

“We have worked closely with KARI to validate our software’s support for KOMPSAT-3 imagery,” said Dr. Philip Cheng, Senior Scientist at PCI Geomatics. “Our software includes support for the new Single Pass Stereo Mode, which will be capable of extracting high-resolution DEMs. Users of our software will also have the ability to pansharpen KOMPSAT-3 imagery.”

PCI has performed quality control on the imagery to determine the achievable accuracy, and found the correction of the KOMPSAT-3 imagery to be very accurate using the Rational Polynomial Coefficients (RPC) provided.  The support for KOMPSAT-3 will be available in a future service pack for Geomatica 2013 and can be deployed now in PCI’s enterprise-level production systems.

PCI’s support for KOMPSAT-3 will include RPC model creation and the Toutin Model (allowing for very accurate corrections using the satellite orbital ephemeris data) as well as rapid and high-quality pansharpening capability. KOMPSAT-3 images have been provided by Satrec Initiative, which holds the exclusive right for global distribution right for the KOMPSAT series of satellites.
