1 Applanix DSS: Current Technology and Developments
Ernest Yap Regional Sales Manager

2 What is the Applanix DSS?
Designed as a turn-key, all-digital medium-format mapping solution: Integrated POS AV Direct Georeferencing System POSTrack Flight Management System (FMS) for Stand-Alone systems True Color and CIR Digital Imager (39 or 22 Mega Pixels) with option Yaw stabilized Azimuth mount Ruggedized data logger and pressurized drive Imagery and POS AV data post-processing software (POS Pac)

3 Applanix POS TRACK System Applanix RapidOrtho & INPHO
DSS Workflow Overview Image Server Applanix POS PAC 5 Mission Planning Flight Operation Mission Execution NAV Processing Ortho Photo & DEM Extraction Server Provisioning Applanix POS TRACK System Applanix RapidOrtho & INPHO

4 + Shock & Vibe and Pressure Tested= Mapping Grade Camera
DSS is a true Metric Camera employing the advantage of Direct Georeferencing Metric implies that the system is calibrated for interior orientation and remains STABLE over time Principle Point Lens Distortion Focal Length + Shock & Vibe and Pressure Tested= Mapping Grade Camera

5 Applanix DSS that has been certified by the USGS

6 Reasons: Applanix Camera Manufacturing Lab Precision CNC Machine
Improve overall quality and re-duce re-work time via improved tooling Shorten manufacturing time via improved tooling Shorten turn-around times on re-calibrations for the yearly maintenance Terrestrial Camera Calibration Cage

7 QA/QC Process for DSS Imagery
Photogrammetry Tools used to calibrate then check: MU/Camera boresight angles GPS antenna offsets (rover and base station) Camera calibration (principle point, lens distortion, focal length) Datum and projection transformation from WGS84 ECEF to local level IMU calibration

8 DSS Market Segments Urban Planning Roads and Highways
Area Mapping Corridor Mapping Rapid Response Urban Planning County Mapping Insurance Roads and Highways Powerline Pipeline Shoreline Disaster Assessment Military Law Enforcement Facilities and Security

9 Current DSS Product Offerings
Solution Description Target Market DSS 422 Corridor (Low Altitude) DSS 439 Small Area Ortho and Topographic Mapping, Corridor and Rapid Response DSS 439 RapidOrtho Rapid Response (Military, law enforcement and disaster management) DSS 422 and 439 OEM Sensor Fusion (ie Lidar)

10 Tactical Operational Airborne Mapping is a global opportunity segment that includes the following applications Military Ortho Map Reconnaissance Critical Infrastructure Mapping for Events Emergency Preparation Area Forensics Disaster Assessment Border Control Protection Tactical Field Ops Movement and Monitoring

11 Emergency Response Activities for Operational Mapping
Prevention Involves the gathering of baseline data, identifying potential hazardous sites and assessing the availability of facilities and equipment necessary to assist in emergency response activities Preparedness Involves monitoring the high-risk area in order to provide early warning of potential security risks or disasters Emergency Response Specific incident involvement for the identification of the location, assessment of the occurrence, and short term monitoring of the event Recovery Monitoring of the affected areas for damage assessment, change detection and environmental and social impact

12 In-Field Data Collection Requirements for Operational Mapping
Rapid Deployment of Reliable Equipment and Resources Any equipment used in data collection must be easily portable, in most cases operated by one-person, and must minimize any risk of in-field downtime Data must be delivered to end-user in a timely fashion Time to Collect and process data must me managed depending on the temporal requirements of data needs in the planning and assessment processes Data collection methodology must remain flexible to the situation The collection of data must be reliable and allow for frequent (in some cases non-intrusive) coverage and allow for change detection over the area(s) affected Data Provisioning Solution must address the rapid provisioning of data to first responders and planning teams

13 Applanix DSS Market Summary
DSS was first introduced by Applanix in 2004 Some Market Facts: Today Applanix has over 100 DSS systems flying worldwide (combination of stand- alone and sensor fused platforms- ie lidar and multispectral) ~ 10% Of these systems have been deployed into Rapid Response and Military applications Customers include: NOAA, NRL, Canadian DND (MCE) & RCMP Announcer: Applanix has a simple mission - to be the industry leader in the development, manufacturing, sales and support of integrated, inertial GPS products for commercial applications - a market we have pioneered! Today, our focus is on a range of products that provide dynamically accurate measurement of vehicle position and orientation. Currently, our technology is used in a number of marine, land and airborne applications.

14 Longer Focal Length Lens
Applanix has successfully tested longer focal length 250mm option for DSS Fast turn around of data, high accuracy of geo-coding, high-resolution of imagery proved to be invaluable vs satellite imagery for threat assessment Net result => Can produce high res map from higher altitudes for recon mapping applications

15 Applanix DSS RapidOrtho™
Image Development Radiometric Correction Real-time Navigation solution POS Data Images RapidOrtho Orthophoto Production Existing DEM/DTM (e.g. USGS NED) Orthophotos Orthomosaics

16 Applanix POSPac Air 5.0 POSPac Air 5.0: a NEW approach to Airborne Digital Mapping The distance to nearest reference station extended well beyond 30 km (19 mi) Eliminates the need to fly flat turns Reduces the need to start close to a reference station to initialize ambiguities Time to fix ambiguities is significantly reduced POSPac Air 5.0 increases the accuracy and reliability of positioning in an airborne environment. How? Applanix SmartBaseTM using Trimble VRSTM Technology Applanix IN-FusionTM Technology

17 DSS Integration with LIDAR
DSS is currently flying on lidar systems Working with Lidar Manufacturers to improve: Software integration (workflow, control) Hardware integration (ie smaller payloads etc.)

18 Value Proposition of DSS
Applanix offers a complete solution including FMS, POS, Camera and mapping software ALL Supported by Applanix Direct Georeferencing solution at a performance that has been qualified by the USGS Fast Shutter Speeds (up to 1/4000) versus slower speeds offered be competition enhances image quality and allows users to fly at higher speeds without the need for FMC (Forward Motion Compensation)

19 Value Proposition of DSS
4. Rugged system architecture shock and vibe and pressure tested for aircraft environment 5. Custom Lenses and mount configuration for aircraft operation and ease of removal and replacement in the field without the need to re-calibrate 6. ISO functionality allow for operation of the system in low-light conditions
