Strategy Highlights

The technologies of today are more than ever the nerve centre of our global economy. Both social and economic aspects of governance and leadership lie at the heart of an important technological and informational patrimony. Complete control over this patrimony has become a crucial part in facing the challenges of today and the future.

FOXEL's business model and technological approach provide our Clients and Partners with a reliable solution for integrating tangible applications aimed at re-appropriating digital territory while ensuring sovereignty over their data and innovation processes.

The technologies deployed by FOXEL have set a new standard in 3D-metric reconstruction capacity, using dense point clouds composed of paired geolocalized pixels from several photographs of a given environment. This represents a concrete technological response to a variety of major challenges.

These same technologies offer countless application possibilities, ranging from territory management needs to training. Moreover, they have the potential for generating capital profit centres for FOXEL's Clients and Partners.

With growing international recognition, FOXEL enjoys the full support of all of the strategic, industrial and technological resources it needs to attain its objectives and to become the world leader in the 3D-metric digitizing of environments in the years ahead.
