Total data control from capture to delivery

iSTAR Pulsar+ compact mobile mapping system builds on the success of the groundbreaking iSTAR Pulsar, providing industry-leading 11K 360° imaging in an accessible form.

However, iSTAR Pulsar+ boasts significant new features that enable you to fully control the processing, storage and use of your data.

Only iSTAR Pulsar+ gives you…

Geo-referenced images

GPS coordinates are embedded within every image for effortless, automatic image positioning within GIS and other location-based processing applications. Corresponding GPS and IMU txt files enable accurate image positioning within 3rd party workflows.

Local processing

Copy encrypted data via USB-C into Immersive Studio for local batch processing, eliminating cloud dependency and ensuring total data control.

More about Immersive Studio

NCTech SDK

Harness the power of Immersive Studio for Windows to effortlessly process all your data at the click of a button. Integrating the NCTech SDK guarantees the highest levels of data portability, ensuring streamlined processing directly within your own applications.

Powerful integrations

iSTAR Pulsar+ allows for post-processed accurate time synchronisation with external GPS and IMU sensors. This provides the highest levels of positional accuracy, adding further value to existing hardware without the constraints of physical connectivity.

Our SLAM is transforming industries by making it easier, quicker and safer to capture and create a 3D model of our built or natural world. Through technology integration and NCTech’s expertise in imagery, we are able to bring a best-in-class product to market.
