Atlantic Supports The Army Corps of Engineers With Complex Survey Task Order

The Herbert Hoover Dike serves an important role for the entire South Florida region, aiding in flood control, water conservation, and preventing saltwater intrusion into the freshwater lakes. Without the dike, the entire eco-system would be affected and the region would suffer major devastation with even the smallest storm.

The need for a dike was recognized over 100 years ago, but the original structures of sand and muck failed. While ingenious for its time, the weak structure was completely ruined only 15 years later by a hurricane that took thousands of lives. It was later re-built in the 1930’s but still did not meet standards to truly address flood prevention. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that the new dike system you see today was constructed and given the name, the Herbert Hoover Dike.

The 143-mile earthen dam surrounds Lake Okeechobee and prevents flooding throughout the South Florida area, including the eco-important Everglades. Improvements have been made, levees have been added, but years of erosion and aging have damaged the over 50 year old structure. With the Dike’s stability at risk, the US Army Corps of Engineers […]

Atlantic Upgrades Ortho Production Software to SimActive

Atlantic, a Huntsville-based company specializing in remote sensing, surveying and consulting services, has recently upgraded their ortho production software to SimActive.

SimActive’s Correlator3D™ software is a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution for the generation of high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including UAVs. Correlator3D™ performs aerial triangulation (AT) and produces dense digital surface models (DSM), digital terrain models (DTM), orthomosaics and vectorized 3D features. Powered by GPU technology and multi-core CPUs, Correlator3D™ ensures matchless processing power to support rapid production of large datasets.

SimActive creates automated processes with intuitive manual editing tools so Atlantic can create custom solutions and meet the individual needs of clients. While ortho-production has been highly automated for years, this software uses innovative algorithms that significantly reduce processing time, manual editing and results in a better overall product for Atlantic’s clients.

“At Atlantic, we place a high value on investing in the right solutions,” said Brian Mayfield, President and COO.  “After reviewing many test results and considering the capability of the software, we believe SimActive will offer our clients a quality product at the best price.”
