1 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING Applanix DSS: Current Technology and Developments Ernest Yap Regional Sales Manager

2 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING What is the Applanix DSS? 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) Designed as a turn-key, all-digital medium-format mapping solution:

4 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING Applanix DSS that has been certified by the USGS

6 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING Applanix Camera Manufacturing LabPrecision CNC Machine Terrestrial Camera Calibration Cage Reasons: 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

7 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING DSS Market Segments Area Mapping Corridor Mapping Rapid Response Roads and Highways Powerline Pipeline Shoreline Disaster Assessment Military Law Enforcement Facilities and Security Urban Planning County Mapping Insurance

9 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING Current DSS Product Offerings Solution DescriptionTarget Market DSS 422Corridor (Low Altitude) DSS 439Small Area Ortho and Topographic Mapping, Corridor and Rapid Response DSS 439 RapidOrthoRapid Response (Military, law enforcement and disaster management) DSS 422 and 439 OEM Sensor Fusion (ie Lidar)

10 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING Emergency Response Activities for Operational Mapping 1)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 2)Preparedness Involves monitoring the high-risk area in order to provide early warning of potential security risks or disasters 3)Emergency Response Specific incident involvement for the identification of the location, assessment of the occurrence, and short term monitoring of the event 4)Recovery Monitoring of the affected areas for damage assessment, change detection and environmental and social impact

12 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING In-Field Data Collection Requirements for Operational Mapping 1)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 2)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 3)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 4)Data Provisioning Solution must address the rapid provisioning of data to first responders and planning teams

13 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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

14 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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

16 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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 SmartBase TM using Trimble VRS TM Technology –Applanix IN-Fusion TM Technology

17 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING Value Proposition of DSS 1.Applanix offers a complete solution including FMS, POS, Camera and mapping software ALL Supported by Applanix 2.Direct Georeferencing solution at a performance that has been qualified by the USGS 3. 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 PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE MAPPING AND POSITIONING 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
