CIGI support

We are proud to announce that Imagine IG now supports CIGI (Common Image Generator Interface). The Common Image Generator Interface (CIGI) is an interface designed to promote a standard way for a host device to communicate with an image generator (IG) in the simulation industry.

While our C++ SDK still remains a perfect choice to integrate Imagine IG into new projects, the new CIGI support allows easy drop-in replacement of an obsolete IG with nearly no effort.

Our implementation supports all common functionalities of CIGI (versions 3.0 / 3.1 / 3.2 / 3.3). We have also added some significant improvement over the collision detection capabilities offered by CIGI.

CIGI support is implemented through a fully documented plugin. Don't hesitate to contact us for further details !

Ultra high resolution imagery

We have recently got our hands on ultra high resolution imagery, consisting in 10 cm/pixel aerial imagery and 50 cm/pixel elevation data. The data cover the whole Zurich canton (CH).
The data have been successfully integrated in a scene in a couple of minutes, and then automatically processed.
The result is really amazing, as shown in the screenshot below. Please note no manual operation have been performed.
Thanks to the Canton of Zurich for providing such high quality open data !

Support for SRTM 1 arc second data set (30m)

We have added support for the SRTM 1 arc second dataset, which has been recently released by NASA (link).
The improved resolution makes a noticeable difference, especially in mountainous areas such as the Alps, where the crests are much better defined. See below a comparaison screenshot between the new 30m dataset and the previously used 90m dataset:

New projects

We are pleased to announce that our IG software has been selected for various projects recently:

- Leeds Bradford Airport (3 channels)
- Birmingham Airport (3 channels)
- Chester Hawarden Airport (3 channels)
- SMATSA (12 channels)

Thanks for your trust !


From 13th to 17th June, we will be exhibiting at Eurosatory 2016 which is being held at Villepinte Exhibition Center in Paris. Held every two years, Eurosatory is the largest international land and air-land defence and security exhibition, covering the industry’s entire supply chain and attracting a high-level worldwide audience. As such, this year’s event promises to offer us an excellent opportunity to meet a wide range of potential business partners and demonstrate our specialist expertise in developing the most advanced Image Generator software for defence and security applications.
You will find us on the Grand Est region booth (hall 6 - booth FE586).
