Applanix has a simple mission - to be the industry leader in the development, manufacture, sales, and support of Integrated Inertial/GPS products. Our technology is specifically designed for commercial applications, including aerial survey and remote sensing, land-based mobile mapping, and marine survey operations – markets we helped pioneer.
Applanix was founded in 1991 on defense and aerospace industry expertise. With global reach and innovative engineering excellence recognized worldwide, the company's Position and Orientation Systems (POS™) are now the industry-standard for airborne, land, and marine survey applications.
The DSS Digital Sensor System is a ready-to-use, directly georeferenced, medium-format, airborne digital camera system. It is the digital imaging answer for aerial survey and remote sensing applications requiring a rapid, cost-effective solution. A mapping-quality alternative to large- format digital cameras, the DSS offers a compact system, a complete solution, and a competitive advantage.
A fully integrated marine vessel based mobile mapping solution for producing accurately georeferenced LiDAR point cloud data, even in the most difficult environments.
POS AV is a hardware and software system specifically designed for direct georeferencing of airborne sensor data. By integrating precision GNSS with inertial technology, POS AV enables geospatial projects to be completed more efficiently, effectively, and economically. Supported by Applanix' industry expertise and technological innovation, POS AV is engineered for aerial cameras, scanning lasers, imaging sensors, synthetic aperture radar, and LIDAR technology.
POS LV is a compact, fully integrated, turnkey position and orientation system, utilizing integrated inertial technology to generate stable, reliable and repeatable positioning solutions for land-based vehicle applications.
POS MV, POS MV Elite (for all marine vessels) and the POS MV WaveMaster (for smaller survey launches) are all tightly-coupled systems using Applanix' unique approach to Inertially-Aided Real-Time Kinematic (IARTK) technology. The user-friendly, turnkey systems provide accurate attitude, heading, heave, position, and velocity data, representing the latest in state-of-the-art inertial/GPS technology
POS AV is also available with an integrated flight management system, in a new product called POSTrack (above). POSTrack is the first fully integrated, real-time direct georeferencing and flight management system designed for the airborne geospatial community. Purpose-built to reduce the costs associated with the preparation and implementation of airborne surveys, POSTrack minimizes mission planning and operational workload. Utilizing a combination of specifically developed software and hardware tools, the system
combines the best of both technologies with all the functionality necessary to simplify and streamline today’s aerial survey and remote sensing operations.
