SGSI is a developer of Remote Sensing Platforms and an integrator of Remote Sensing Technologies meeting the demands of sophisticated Federal, State, and Commercial users, and Emergency Management Services, providing a suite of imaging, remote sensing, data transfer and automated processing tools critical to the needs of Emergency Management Decision Makers across North America. Through SGSI and our Partners’ efforts we strive to provide better and timelier data to support the decision maker on the ground resulting in faster and safer responses to natural and man-made disasters. As these technologies and processes evolve, further commercialization to other geospatial data users is a natural progression for these services
Since 1954, our Parent company Surdex has served clients from the Federal, State, County, Municipal, and Private Sector, helping them meet their imaging, remote sensing, mapping, and other geospatial data needs. Recognizing the increasing need and demand for timely and accurate geospatial data sets to support the First Responder, in both natural and man-made disasters, Surdex developed the concept of an airborne platform, based on the Raytheon King Air 350, capable of meeting the wide variety of remote sensing needs required to assist the decision-making process of the Emergency Manager by integrating a variety of sensors into one delivery system.
Surdex Geospatial Systems Integration, LLC (SGSI), in collaboration with our Partners, is continuing the development and integration of multi-sensor equipped aerial platforms to support a variety of Emergency Responder geospatial data needs in response to growing data demands as a result of natural and man-made disaster events. The ever-increasing demands for timely imagery, terrain data, and other remotely sensed data products supporting Federal, State, and Local emergency responders require airborne platforms that provide multi-mission capabilities to quickly react and respond to varying environments and needs unique to each disaster. The SGSI team’s challenge is to integrate various systems such as X-band and P-band interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR), LiDAR, Digital Imagery, scanner and frame, Video, Multi-Spectral and Thermal (mid-wave and long-wave) remotely sensed data and deliver geospatial data via down/up link in a nearly real-time collection mode for timely 3-D geospatial analysis.
