Applanix Adds New High-Performance POS Systems to Its Air and Land Product Portfolios

Essen, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013—Applanix, a world leader in products and solutions for mobile mapping and positioning, today introduced new versions of its positioning and orientation systems for airborne and land-based mapping—the POS AV™ 610 and POS LV™ 610.  Delivering the same industry-leading performance as previous versions of POS AV and LV, the new systems use next-generation commercial inertial technologies that are offered globally.

The announcement was made at INTERGEO 2013, the leading conference and trade fair for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management.

Applanix POS AV and LV products integrate precision Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) with advanced inertial technology (accelerometers and gyroscopes) to provide uninterrupted measurements of the position, roll, pitch and true heading of moving vehicles.  Geospatial projects using POS can be completed more efficiently, effectively and economically.  The POS AV 610 and POS LV 610 offer new advantages to customers:

  • Global availability:  commercial technology
  • Smaller and lighter:  achieved by integrating a new state-of-the-art FOG (Fiber Optic Gyro) based Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
  • Exceptional performance with Applanix SmartCalTM software:  SmartCal is a new compensation technology designed to achieve unrivalled performance from IMUs manufactured specifically for mobile mapping applications
  • Cost efficiency:  exceptional accuracy, even in demanding conditions, at unprecedented price points

POS LV 610 and AV 610 are also available to systems integrators in the form of an OEM board set called the Trimble® AP60. The Trimble AP is a series of embedded GNSS-Inertial OEM boards that provide both continuous mobile positioning in poor signal environments and high-accuracy direct georeferencing of imaging sensors.  The AP series is ideal for a variety of commercial mobile positioning and orientation applications including airborne and terrestrial mapping and guidance for unmanned vehicles.

“The latest versions of POS LV and POS AV take Applanix’ state-of-the-art positioning technologies worldwide for land and air applications,” said Steve Woolven, President of Applanix. "Wherever mobile mappers operate, the new POS technology provides users with accurate, reliable and robust position and orientation solutions.”

POS AV 610, POS LV 610 and Trimble AP60 are available now through the Applanix sales network.  For more information, visit: www.applanix.com.
