GeoDigital International (GDI) and Airborne 1 Corporation (A1) Agree to Combine Forces, Creating the Largest Full-Spectrum LiDAR & Imaging Mapping Entity in North America

Los Angeles, California — May 07, 2010 — GeoDigital International (GDI) and Airborne 1 Corporation have agreed to the acquisition of Airborne 1 by GDI. GeoDigital is a world leader in LiDAR & Imaging technology for engineering surveys and right-of-way corridor mapping for the electric utility, pipeline, telecommunication, highway, rail, and other industries.

Alastair Jenkins, CEO of GeoDigital International, Inc., said in announcing the agreement “the addition of Airborne 1 to the GeoDigital Group of Companies will allow us to provide our existing corridor engineering and Utility clients with a wider range of mapping products. More importantly by remaining an independent service provider to survey and mapping companies Airborne 1 will be able to deploy our advanced technology Lidar and imaging systems. This will allow them to deliver higher accuracy and density data to customers who traditionally do not use our turn key information Technology solutions.”

In addition to their expertise in helicopter-based LiDAR mapping, GDI is actively engaged in Street Level mapping with advanced sensors. By merging these capabilities with the broad-area mapping experience of Airborne 1 and their hundreds of partners in the US and abroad, the two firms will be able to service the full spectrum of LiDAR and complex oblique data collection needs of survey, engineering and mapping professionals.

Todd A. Stennett, Airborne 1 Corporation’s CEO, stated, “Today’s announcement will bring new opportunities for Airborne 1 and its customers, partners, brands and employees. The agreement allows us access to cutting edge technology originally developed for military programs that will offer a quantum leap in efficiencies to mapping professionals worldwide”.

“For the first time, mapping firms and departments will be able to access the very best technologies for High Altitude, Low Altitude, and Street Level LiDAR, along with oblique imagery - all deliverable to clients via the web in shorter timeframes. These capabilities, combined with tools for fusing data (including real-time video streams), will enable mapping professionals to deliver truly cutting edge solutions at best-value pricing, to engineering firms and end users worldwide.”

Airborne 1 Corporation will continue global operations from their El Segundo, California location, complementing GDI’s existing presence in Lompoc, CA, Victoria BC, Atlanta GA and Toronto, Ontario.
