SOCET SET®, BAE Systems’ digital mapping software application, is used for precision photogrammetry and geospatial analysis. The software is renowned for its unequaled depth, performance, and ability to ingest data from numerous government and commercial image sources.
SOCET SET works with the latest airborne digital sensors and includes innovative point-matching algorithms for multi-sensor triangulation. It offers powerful functionality for triangulation, DEM extraction, orthorectification, mosaicking, and feature collection. Moreover, these capabilities reduce labor hours through optimized, end-to-end workflows, resulting in significant cost savings throughout the mapping process.
Customers worldwide use SOCET SET to create accurate, high resolution digital terrain and surface models, image maps, 3-D visualizations, GIS databases, and more. Its incomparable accuracy comes from the image sensor modeling process, which uses rigorous mathematical models to associate points on an image with their real-world locations.
SOCET SET also exploits film, digital airborne, satellite, and terrestrial imagery. The software can combine different sources within one project, giving the user maximum flexibility to meet mapping goals. In addition, users can batch-process operations to increase productivity, including distributed processing on networked computers using the Condor® application.
SOCET SET’s solid architecture, numerous data formats and sensor models, unmatched algorithms, and rich feature set are the product of more than 25 years of development. This versatile photogrammetry tool tackles large projects with ease, allowing users to streamline tedious, routine digital mapping tasks and optimize their workflows. The data collected and produced by SOCET SET can be exported in various formats forend users, or for input to other applications. These raster and vector products, derived from many different image sources, are widely used throughout the mapping, GIS, remote sensing, visualization, and simulation communities.
The base software includes: frame and close-range image import; multi-image viewing; real-time image shaping and rectification; and automatic interior orientation. Additionally, the “Core” bundle includes Model Setup, Image Map, Line of Sight Analysis, CIB® Import, CADRG, OpenFlight(tm), and Simple Sensor Models. Additional functionality, such as triangulation, DTM generation, orthorectification, and feature collection, is available in optional modules. The user purchases only what is needed.
Additional features available
Feature collection and editing in the ESRI® environment. Since SOCET for ArcGIS utilizes the rigorous photogrammetry of SOCET SET in conjunction with ESRI’s ArcMap application, operators can follow their ordinary GIS workflows in a familiar environment while collecting accurate geospatial data in stereo.
SOCET SET’s vertical obstruction identification software application uses stereo imagery for identifying and collecting vertical obstructions in and around airfields. It automatically creates the FAA, NGA, and ICAO PANS-OPS obstruction identification surfaces for military and civilian airfields.
Developed by Cardinal Systems and designed by photogrammetrists, VrOne is a powerful package for feature collection and editing. Its integration with SOCET SET provides a system that is easy to learn, and offers fast data collection, straightforward editing, and specialized mapping applications for the commercial market.
BINGO, from GIP Geoinformatics and Photogrammetric Engineering, is a state-of-the-art bundle adjustment package for rapid triangulation of large blocks of airborne film imagery, terrestrial imagery and geodetic observations.
