Applanix announced that its POS LV line of products now features Inertially-Aided RTK positioning technology. By using raw satellite data (rather than receiver-computed position) to aid the inertial sensor, Applanix's POS LV products now reacquire RTK lock within seconds after an outage, and can maintain centimeter-level positioning in areas of frequent GPS outages. In fact, data from as few as one visible satellite can be used to aid the inertial solution. Similarly, POS LV users relying on traditional DGPS corrections will experience improved position robustness through areas of intermittent GPS availability.

Manfred Sever, Land Applications Product Manger at Applanix says, "We believe that IARTK answers the needs of companies involved in mobile positioning, whether it be GIS data acquisition or vehicle tracking. Applanix has had several requests from customers who work in difficult GPS environments for a positioning solution of the unmatched reliability provided by this technology. Real-world testing has confirmed that IARTK meets these needs. Already known for providing a positioning solution of unparalleled reliability, IARTK promises to further enhance Applanix's reputation for providing innovative, cutting-edge positioning technologies, and reaffirm the company's commitment to continued positioning innovation."

Now available with all POS LV systems, this breakthrough technology promises to further strengthen the reliability of Applanix's aided inertial positioning systems in areas of intermittent GPS, such as urban canyons, treed areas, tunnels and bridges.
