RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

MGGP AERO

Research & Development Centre

Creation of the R&D Centre in 2017, located at the Rzeszów Jasionka Airport, was the answer to increasing number of R&D projects involving sensor technology and aerial platforms.

Technology and device innovations

Solutions created in the R&D Centre are implemented every day to help us acquire high-quality, cost-and-time effective services. Our proprietary solutions involve:

Multisensor aerial platforms for simultaneous collection of various types of data

Our own systems of oblique cameras integrating up to seven sensors

A set of sensors for corridor mapping adjusted to airplanes or helicopters

BigData environment to work with terabytes of data obtained every day

A server room that supports about 100 installations of our web applications (visited by nearly 10 000 users) offers 365/7/24 access to data

OBLIVIEW® - our multipurpose web platform for publication and analysis of collected data

R&D Team

Our team is made of people with broad knowledge and competencies, representing the world of business and science. For the sake of remote sensing, we create a wide range of machine-learning methods that we adjust to our needs. The results of our work frequently appear in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Product innovations

The results of our research and development projects, are implemented in the market of aerial data and remote sensing analyses.
The projects include, among others

HabitARS

conducted in 2016-2019: ‘The innovative approach supporting monitoring of non-forest Natura 2000 habitats, using remote sensing methods’, cofounded by the National Centre for Research and Development in Poland as part of the BIOSTRATEG II strategic program’. The aim was to create a product for identification and mapping of non-forest habitats as well as threats, such as desiccation, succession and invasion, based on remote sensing and botanical measurements.

GreenCity

conducted in 2017-2018: ‘The system for monitoring of urban greenery with the use of remote sensing methods’, financed from the company’s own funds. The project resulted in the ‘Tree Crown Map’, created via the original method involving remote sensing.

Cooperation with scientific institutes

We are supported by scientists from universities and scientific institutes from Poland, as part of project or partnership agreements. In this case Business and Science go perfectly in line and bring notable effects. Our partners are: the University of Warsaw, University of Łódź, Warsaw University of Technology and AGH University of Science and Technology.
