Applanix Announces POSPac MMS 8 Software

Applanix has released its POSPac MMS 8 GNSS-aided inertial post-processing software for georeferencing data collected from cameras, LIDARs, multi-beam sonars, and other sensors on mobile platforms.

The unit, introduced at the InterGEO trade fair in Hamburg, Germany, uses Trimble’s CenterPoint RTX subscription service. The Trimble CenterPoint RTX service allows land, air, marine, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms to achieve centimeter-level accuracy within one hour after data collection with just an internet connection, the company said.

It’s Time for 3D Mapping–Aided GNSS

Figures 1-6

Real-time position accuracy, achievable in dense urban areas using low-cost equipment, is currently limited to tens of meters. If this could be improved to five meters or better, a host of potential applications would benefit. These include situation awareness of emergency, security and military personnel and vehicles; emergency caller location, mobile mapping, tracking vulnerable people and valuable assets, intelligent mobility, location-based services and charging, augmented reality; and enforcement of curfews, restraining orders and other court orders.
