Chesapeake Bay Helicopters Successful Implementation of geoDVR Gen2 & FLIR Corona 350 Gimbal Video Camera System


FORT COLLINS, Colorado / CHESAPEAKE, Virginia, USA – Remote GeoSystems, Inc. and Chesapeake Bay Helicopters, Inc. (CBH) are pleased to announce the successful implementation of the geoDVR Gen2 with a FLIR Corona 350 Gimbal Video Camera System on a MD Helicopter for Airborne Utility Line Inspections.

“The geoDVR offers tremendous advantages over our previous video recording system,” says Chesapeake Bay Helicopters CEO & Co-Owner Manager Oleg Bulanov. “The geoDVR is a fraction of the size and weight, it records all three video channels to a single SDD, and offers user-friendly multi-stream video monitoring. The in-mission GPS logging and post-flight reporting software means CBH can provide our clients with vital inspection information in hours, not weeks.”

The geoDVR Gen2 is an advanced “plug & play” DVR for recording multiple channels of geo-referenced High-Definition Full Motion Video (gFMV™) in airborne and mobile mapping environments. It is ideally suited for professional utility/pipeline inspection, ISR and law enforcement applications that utilize multi-sensor gyro-stabilized gimbal video cameras.

Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will use the geoDVR with their FLIR Corona 350 to perform helicopter-based electric utility inspections with High-Definition color (EO), Infrared (IR) and Corona (UV) video as well as high-resolution oblique still photos.

Videos, photos, points of interest and audio notes collected with the geoDVR are compatible with Remote GeoSystems LineVision™ suite of GIS project mapping and reporting software. LineVision allows for simple desktop and browser-based playback, analysis and project reporting utilizing the Esri ArcGIS Platform, Google Earth, Bing Maps & PLS-CADD.
