POSTrack system and DSS 322

APPLANIX released its POSTrack system, which is designed for streamlined airborne direct georeferencing and in-flight task automation.

APPLANIX released its POSTrack system, which is designed for streamlined airborne direct georeferencing and in-flight task automation. The system is comprised of a single-mount, twin module incorporating the POS AV computer system (PCS) and FMS computer system (FCS) using real-time embedded computing technology. The system is controlled via a ruggedized touch screen pilot display for pilot-only operation, or via a remote operator interface. The system is compact and easily installed on all types of aircraft. In addition to handling the GPS/IMU functions, POSTrack has been configured to automatically control and trigger various airborne sensors to ensure high levels of precision. The in-flight automation enables precise flight path guidance and accurate sensor positioning for optimized airtime over the target area and the most economical and efficient mission capability. The real-time orientation solution generated by the system can be applied to stabilized mounts for automatic drift correction and leveling control.

Also, APPLANIX launched its digital sensor system, the DSS 322. The DSS 322 is a modular, turnkey digital airborne remote sensing system designed to complete all phases of a project life cycle, from initial flight planning through digital image acquisition to final product output. The system includes a new camera data module and computer firmware, plus enhanced flight management software. The DSS 322 incorporates a 22 megapixel CCD array, Aerolens custom-manufactured optics, and TruSpectrum technology engineered to maximize the system's capability in generating high-quality color and CIR (color infrared) digital geospatial imaging products. The system's new lenses feature a fixed focus and fixed aperture, together with a customized camera adapter that ensures repeatability and stability of calibration.
