Applanix Introduces New Aerial Digital Photogrammetric System

Applanix
has introduced the POSTrack 410 flight management and direct
georeferencing system designed for use with the latest generation of
medium-format airborne digital photogrammetric camera.

The POSTrack 410 incorporates Applanix’s POS AV GNSS-inertial navigation
system (INS) and POSPac Mobile Mapping Suite (MMS) office software,
featuring the IN-Fusion technology and SmartBase module. This system
can process both GPS and GLONASS signals as well as those from
satellite-based augmentation systems.

Flight management features
include mission planning, pilot guidance, automatic stabilized mount
control and automatic camera triggering at pre-planned intervals. The
POS AV features include in-air initialization, leveling of stabilized
mounts, automatic drift correction, GNSS position translation using
encoder data from stabilized mounts, and generation of Exterior
Orientation of each image for the mapping process.

For block
photography applications the POSTRACK 410 also supports automatic
aerial triangulation to improve final geometric accuracy and make the
point matching processes truly automatic and reliable. The POSTrack 410
can also be supplied with Trimble’s InPHO Match-AT aerial triangulation
software.

Applanix Corporation is a Trimble company based in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada.
