The Earthscape Augmented Reality System (ARS) is a product for aerial first responders and military tactical control officers that dramatically improves situational awareness. With the touch of a button, live Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) video can be overlaid with computer-generated mapping data—showing street names, parcel address and ownership information, and flight hazards such as radio towers. With a touch of another button, the operators can view a synthetically generated image using satellite or aerial imagery for instances in which the on-board camera isn’t adequate
