Applanix Introduces RapidOrtho DualCam Airborne Mapping Solution for the Digital Sensor System

July 7, 2008 - BEIJING, CHINA - Applanix introduced today a dual camera version of its Digital Sensor System (DSS) 439 RapidOrthomedium format airborne mapping system that produces 4-band ortho-imagery in a single pass. With all the features and benefits of the established DSS 439 RapidOrtho Solution, the DSS 439 RapidOrtho DualCam adds a second DSS camera with a monochromatic (Charge-Coupled Device) CCD array specifically configured to capture Near Infra Red (NIR) imagery.

The announcement was made at the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) 2008 Conference in Beijing.  

"The DSS 439 RapidOrtho DualCam showcases a directly georeferenced rapid orthorectification process that enables users to design a workflow to match specific data delivery needs," said Joe Hutton, Director of Airborne Products at Applanix. "The system produces separate Color and NIR orthophoto products, which are then combined into a single 4-band orthophoto product. As pioneers and leaders in this marketplace, we are committed to delivering innovative solutions such as the DualCam to meet the current and future needs of the airborne community."  

The DSS 439 RapidOrtho DualCam system is available as a stand-alone solution, or it can be integrated with LIDAR. Applications for the system include: shoreline mapping, forestry management, biomass mapping, and other airborne mapping applications.  

Data delivery options include: RapidOrtho, Precision RapidOrtho, and High Precision RapidOrtho formats.  

Applanix offers DSS clients world-wide customer support and a yearly maintenance and warranty program. The DSS 439 RapidOrtho DualCam system is available immediately through the Applanix sales network.
