The unit’s POS Computer System (PCS) is half the size of the previous version, ruggedized and sealed. The system includes an inertial measurement unit (IMU), integrated Trimble BD960 GNSS receiver, a wheel-mounted distance measurement instrument (DMI) and a GPS azimuth measurement system (GAMS) with optional second GNSS receiver.

Applanix, a Trimble Company, develops, manufactures, sells and supports products and solutions for mobile mapping and positioning. Applanix’ POS are used in a variety of applications, including road profiling, GIS data acquisition, aerial surveying and mapping, railroad track maintenance and seafloor mapping.
