Product Name:SURE
Product Description:
Year of introduction:2013
Year of last update:2018
Modular :SURE delivers 2.5D and 3D point clouds, fotorealistic textured meshes and true orthophotos in a streamlined full automatic integrated process with image processing techniques. The product uses imagery from classic aerial cameras, multi-head oblique systems, drone cameras as well as most consumer-grade terrestrial cameras. SURE stands for a maximum of details and quality of its deliverables such as acquiring one 3D point per image pixel. For 3D city-models and perfect trueorthos, SURE creates surface models with outstanding sharp edges e.g. at buildings. Standard exchange formats for input and output guarantee for full connectivity to 3rd party workflows. Sophisticated quality assurance is available as well as the possibility to pause within the process, do edits and feed refined intermediate results back into the workflow. The full package is completed with a mesh editor to optionally refine deliverables for maximum quality. SURE perfectly scales with the size of your datasets and with the computing environment that is provided. Power-users benefit fom its distributed processing capabilities. nFrames has its roots in the research department of the Stuttgart University for photogrammetry. Its success is founded on the ongoing collaboration with more than 300 researchers world-wide to create a high-performance product that can be used without need for photogrammetric expertise. SURE technology is also available for integrators through existing libraries and APIs. SURE Aerial – for classic photogrammetric processing with airborne cameras SURE Pro – for smaller projects, drone data and terrestrial close-range products SURE Editor – sophisticated mesh-editing and refinement

DEMs & Orthoimages 
Automatic matching :Semi-Global-Matching variation (tSGM). By efficiently matching on stereo models and subsequently merging the result in the point cloud generation, low noise point clouds with quality information can be retrieved. Hierarchical approaches speed up the process and enable the support of depth large variations in the scene.
