Applanix DSS 439 System

Applanix has launched a dual-camera version of its Digital Sensor System (DSS) 439 RapidOrtho airborne mapping solution and introduced full LIDAR integration options for fixed wing and helicopter installations.

The DSS 439 RapidOrtho DualCam produces a directly georeferenced, four-band ortho-imagery in a single pass, according to the company. The new product offering adds a second DSS camera with a monochromatic charge-coupled device (CCD) array specifically configured to capture near infrared (NIR) imagery.

The new product offering adds a second DSS camera with a monochromatic charge-coupled device (CCD) array specifically configured to capture near infrared (NIR) imagery.

Two LIDAR integration options are available: One for low-altitude corridor mapping application using the Riegl LMS-Q560, and one for high-altitude wide area mapping applications with the Optech ALTM.

“With the addition of the LIDAR options, users can now simultaneously collect and generate directly georeferenced high-resolution color or color infra-red imagery and LIDAR point clouds in the same mapping frame and projection,” says Joe Hutton, Applanix’s director of airborne products.
