GAMMA Remote Sensing

GAMMA Remote Sensing is a Swiss corporation with extensive experience in scientific research, radar and interferometric signal processing, software development, and microwave hardware development and manufacture. It developed the GAMMA SAR, SAR interferometry and Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) processing software and provides licenses for it. More recently, GAMMA developed the GAMMA Portable Radar Interferometer (GPRI), an advanced interferometric real aperture radar for terrestrial ground-motion monitoring. GAMMA is well integrated in the international remote sensing community. Furthermore, GAMMA provides a range of value added services and consulting using satellite and terrestrial radar data.


Pix4D is your solution to convert thousands of aerial images taken by lightweight UAV or aircraft into georeferenced 2D orthomosaics and 3D surface models and point clouds. With its advanced automatic aerial triangulation based purely on image content and unique optimization techniques, Pix4D enables civilian drones to become the next-generation mapping and surveying tool delivering survey-grade accuracy. Pix4D software offers up to centimeter-grade, LiDAR-like 3D precision, features a fully automatic workflow and can be used by anyone as it is very intuitive and easy to use. Assess, edit and improve your projects directly in the software using the rayCloud and Mosaic Editor and seamlessly import your results into any professional GIS, CAD and traditional photogrammetry software package.


Systèmes d’Information à Référence Spatiale (SIRS) SAS is a French innovative SME specialized in the provision Earth Observation based solutions. It is a fully independent private company established in 1989. Over the last 25 years, SIRS has acquired a significant capacity in the development of operational services and the management of large-scale geographical information production projects over extended geographical areas. There are currently about 40 staff working for SIRS.

SIRS main activities are in:

  • Land cover/use mapping for urban planning and environmental monitoring,
  • Habitat cartography (Natura 2000),
  • Crop inventory and controls,
  • Defense geographic data production,
  • Forestry inventory and cartography, tree management

SIRS masters the production of geographical information at all scales from the acquisition of in situ (field) data with teams of foresters and ecologists specialized in forest and biodiversity inventories, to processing and information extraction of airborne and satellite sensors.

ReSe Applications Schläpfer is a small Swiss company focused on remote sensing data processing and imaging spectroscopy software. The company is specialized in modelling of radiation in optical remote sensing, as well as in geometric and radiometric preprocessing of optical remote sensing data.

ReSe developed the PARGE® direct orthorectification software for airborne optical scanner systems. PARGE is used for both airborne imaging spectroscopy systems and for the rectification of UAV data. For scientific analyses of the radiative transfer in remote sensing, the MODO software for the handling of Modtran® radiative transfer calculations has been created. ReSe holds a license for the redistribution of the Modtran®4 and Modtran®5 software components as part of its products.

Furthermore, ReSe successfully advances the development of the original ATCOR® atmospheric correction software packages in collaboration with Dr. R. Richter from DLR. ReSe holds exclusive rights for redistribution of the original implementation of the ATCOR software suite. ATCOR is suitable for standard satellite systems as well as for airborne scanner data. Recently, ReSe developed the BREFCOR BRDF correction module which is now included in ATCOR.
