Cardio Logic with its strategic partner DeltaAero Science, will be exhibiting its new realtime orthorectification workstation, known as the Geo100M, at the AFCEA West 2006 Trade Show in San Diego, Ca., from January 10 to January 12, 2006. The Geo100M will be demonstrating Cardio Logic's remarkably fast processing capability for earth imagery.

Today, Cardio Logic, Inc. announced its special software offer to help in the Katrina / Rita recovery effort. The company is making available free high speed orthorectification software licenses for 6 months, for satellite imagery provided by the QuickBird, IKONOS, and OrbView imagers. Images collected before, during and after the storms struck the US Gulf Coast, can be mosaiced, fused or blended with aerial imagery to provide a quick evaluation or to assess damage.

Cardio Logic’s software will provide a view of the imagery from space that can be seen in a nadir prospective and will be corrected for spatial and terrain distortions. This allows for a very accurate map like orientation of the imagery that can be draped over terrain models or merged with existing maps or imagery from other sensors to form an accurate mosaic of the entire affected region. Objects of interest within the imagery can be geo-located by moving a cursor over the digital image and reading out the latitude and longitude information for the object of interest.

Available to agencies and not-for- profit organizations (for a period of six months) who are actively supporting the Katrina/Rita recovery effort, Cardio Logic will make the software available as a web site download or by CD. An ENVI software license is required and may be obtained from Research Systems Inc.. www.rsinc.com

CARDIO LOGIC INTRODUCES REALTIME ORTHORECTIFICATION WORKSTATION

Cardio Logic announces the introduction of its Fast Orthorectification Workstation known as the "Geo100M". The Geo100M combines Cardio Logic's proven orthorectification software with high speed hardware in a workstation that processes images 10 to 30 times faster than any commercially available software. Test results show that for a 1.6GB image which could take up to 3 hours for processing, the Geo100M was able to complete processing in under 5 minutes. For video images, the Geo100M is the first commercially available product for delivery of orthorectified images in real time.

Wil Sproul, vice president of marketing said "This is a major step forward in image processing that contributes in processing productivity and in delivering images faster than using conventional technology" Mr. Sproul continued " We are proud to be announcing this technology at a time when satellite and aerial images are so important in dealing with homeland security and emergency situations."
Bird satellite, the release of Cardio Logic’s Mojave QB software adds a new ability to precisely locate objects of interest within an image.

Cardio Logic releases Mojave QB for QuickBird imagery

Cardio Logic, Inc. announced the release of a new software product to orthorectify and mosaic images created by DigitalGlobe’s high resolution QuickBird satellite. With the recent emphasis on the need for geo-location accuracy, and the availability of very precise imagery from the QuickBird satellite, the release of Cardio Logic’s Mojave QB software adds a new ability to precisely locate objects of interest within an image.

Operating from a low cost Windows based PC or lap top computer Mojave QB software will input a raw satellite image and then apply high speed processing algorithms to both the image and rigorous sensor metrics provided by DigitalGlobe. The output is a precisely rectified and geo-referenced array of digital pixels that forms a corrected image for viewing, mosaics, or further processing. Each pixel is modified by the software to correct for inherent errors caused by platform stability, pointing angle anomalies or optical distortions. Defined by DigitalGlobe and supplied with the raw image as part of their Rigorous Sensor Model (RSM), the auxiliary data is used by Mojave to generate a Sensor Error Model (SEM) that is then used in the orthorectification process.

“Typically a raw QuickBird image might provide geo-location accuracies of 30 meters, which is exceptionally good, explains Don Gordon, VP of engineering at Cardio Logic. “But our Mojave QB software will further improve the accuracy by also applying terrain information from Digital Elevation Models, (DEM) and known ground control point data (GCP) to the orthorectification process.” By adding your own ground truth data and the Rigorous Sensor Model information to the image the highest possible level of accuracy can be achieved. “It is not uncommon to see sub-pixel geo-location accuracy when two or more ground control points are used as part of the orthorectification process,” says Don. “Our test and evaluation results indicate that Mojave QB offers a significant improvement over raw imagery for geo-referencing purposes and greatly enhances the rapid creation of mosaics.”

Mojave QB and other software is available for purchase and free evaluation licenses may be downloaded from Cardio’s web at www.cardiofx.com For technical or application information Don Gordon may be reached at dgordon@cardiofx.com or by phone at 650 622 9078.

Cardio Logic signs VAR agreement with Research Systems, Inc.

Cardio Logic is pleased to announce that Research Systems Inc has awarded a Value Added Reseller Agreement to Cardio Logic to sell ENVI and other products in association with Cardio's Mojave 3.0 orthorectification software. Three Windows versions of Mojave are now available for delivery: 1) Mojave 3.0 Airphoto, 2) Mojave 3.0 IKONOS and 3) Mojave 3.0 OBC. Other versions are under development which include a plug-in for QuickBird and a package for UNIX/LINUX operated platforms.

Mojave 3.0 operates as a plug-in to ENVI and offers the ability to quickly orthorectify large digital images from airborne and spaceborn platforms as well as digitized film images. Mojave operates under Windows from a low cost PC platform and in addition to high speed orthorectification makes available all the outstanding features that exist within the host ENVI software.

For more information about Cardio Logic software and pending product releases please call Don Gordon at (650) 622-9078. Free demonstration software is available by contacting wsprowl@cardiofx.com.

Cardio Logic releases Mojave 3.0

Cardio Logic announces the release of MOJAVE 3.0, a software package for high - speed orthorectification of very large digital images. Based on software algorithms developed for the 3D visualization and graphics industry, MOJAVE 3.0 offers orthorectification and mosaicing in near – real time. MOJAVE in its initial release is designed to support Kodak’s Research Systems, Inc. (RSI) advanced remote sensing and GIS software package ENVI. Other releases are pending including standalone versions for production applications and versions for other popular third party software packages. MOJAVE 3.0 when used with ENVI as its software base reduces the time to orthorectify, register, and mosaic large images from hours to minutes.  A hardware version of MOJAVE is planned for on-platform applications that will operate in real time. Quickly correcting sensor distortion, platform pointing angle and other distortion causing anomalies from the image is accomplished through the orthorectification software process.  This allows other software packages designed for target location, automatic recognition and such to work more efficiently. After testing several available software packages, Don Gordon, VP of engineering at Cardio Logic chose ENVI as the base platform for the initial release of MOJAVE. “ENVI offered the perfect opportunity for Cardio to test the capability of our new software.  The flexibility and power of Kodak RSI's IDL on which ENVI is based saved us many weeks of design time and allowed us to concentrate on what we do best: creating the fastest running orthorectification product. The enhancement-oriented design of ENVI allowed us to easily integrate our code without complicating the user interface".
