POSTrack system and DSS 322
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.
