Applanix, a Trimble Company, is teaming up with TES Survey Equipment Services LLC to provide products and services to marine clients in the Middle East. By working closely with TES, Applanix gains experienced representation in the Middle East. TES benefits by further expanding its solutions portfolio with the addition of Applanix’ POS MV and POSPac MMS GNSS-aided inertial navigation products for the commercial market.

“Having worked alongside Applanix for many years, the proven benefits to vessel operational efficiency and improved data quality by using POS MV and POSPac MMS products from Applanix are unrivaled,” says John Fraser, commercial director with TES. “By partnering with leading technology and offering Abu Dhabi-based support, TES can provide our customers an expanded range of products and solutions including Applanix.”

The Applanix POS MV system (position and orientation system for marine vessels) is a user-friendly system, designed to provide accurate position, heading, attitude, heave and velocity data for marine vessels and remote sensing equipment.

With more than 1,000 systems deployed worldwide, POS MV is field-tested in extreme conditions. POSPac Mobile Mapping Suite is Applanix' next-generation, industry-leading software for direct georeferencing of mobile mapping sensors using GNSS and inertial technology.

“We believe this is a significant development for Applanix and our marine business,” says Mark Field, business manager of Marine Systems. “TES will provide excellent local sales and support services for our customers in the Middle East. They have a strong knowledge of the business, an exceptional history of building successful client relationships, and are a welcome addition to the Applanix distribution channel.”
