February/March 2017 21 unmanned systems inside "Depending on the size of the monument, the required level of detail and the scale, the processing time for a complete 3-D model can be several months," Federmann said. "The advantag- es over classical geodetic methods are the time it takes to collect the data and the high degree of detail and accuracy." RealityCapture was also able to create an alignment report from any data source. Ladislav Dedik, Studio 727, founder and CEO ENGINEERING. POLICY. PRACTICE. Sensonor fi rst started supplying its small IMUs to space applications in 2012. Today over 30 companies worldwide utilize our inertial products in space – when size and performance matter. STIM210 is in use in LEO CubeSat, Micro- and Nano- satellites for pointing and stabilization, fl ight control, and guidance. • 5 to 10 times lower weight than the next-best alternative with similar performance • Low bias error over temperature • Low bias instability (0.5°/h) • Low noise (0.15°/√h) • Excellent performance under vibration and shock • Compensated digital output, RS422 • Available in 1, 2 or 3 axes • Weight 55 grams, volume <, power 1.5 W • When size, performance and robustness matter 4 YEARS OF SPACE HERITAGE … and counting Sensonor Gyro Modules: " SOME MONUMENTS LOOKED AT FIRST SIGHT LIKE 'EASY' OBJECTS TO DIGITIZE, BUT IN FACT MANY OF THEM WERE HIDING A LOT OF SURPRISING AND TRICKY PARTS, LIKE WELLS, MINESHAFTS, TOWERS, ETC." "With the obtained data, he added, "any required documenta- tion can be created for any purpose, for example to carry out a faithful restoration or even a complete rebuilding of the monu- ment. It is no longer necessary to pre-define the output, because all required documentation can be created from the collected data," Federmann told Inside Unmanned Systems. Detail and Texture UAV operations were comprised largely of autonomously f lown waypoint f lights. After an inspection of the target monument, Federmann said, f lights were planned at the office using the Aibotix AiProFlight f light planning software. A two-man team comprising a pilot and an operator executed the flight plans. To generate the required amount of data at the required level of detail, the camera was automatically triggered every two seconds; unessential photos were later discarded. For more detailed images of important structures, the Aibot X6 V2 was flown manually. In these cases, the pilot took over control of the drone while the operator worked the gimbals and camera. From 2012 to 2015, Studio 727 completely digitized more than 1,450 heritage objects at 81 large architectural groups, including castles, castle ruins, churches, cloisters and other monuments, as well as entire historical districts. An additional 400 smaller objects, including individual churches, churchyards, houses, bridges and loose artifacts, were digitized by the MBSR's own Department of Digitization and Graphic Documentation. Over the course of the project, more than 2,000,000 pic- tures were taken from land, more than 100,000 pictures were
