TerraFly Platform for ALTA sub-centimeter aerial photography

ALTA is an Autonomous Lighter Than Air imaging/sensing platform that is powered by natural forces and information instead of machines. The ALTA remote sensing system is comprised of a large number of small, tethered or drifting balloons that carry miniature image capture sensors along with GPS location and transmission instruments. The system operates below cloud ceilings, transmitting tree-top, oblique, geo-referenced images at low angles, from low altitudes, and at low cost, make massive balloon deployment feasible.

ALTA technology is capable to cost-effectively acquire geo-referenced aerial imagery at the resolution of 0.25 inch per pixel. PowerPoint (general), Public safety.
