Applanix’ Expanded Marine Product Portfolio
Posted by Irina Tabakina
Applanix introduced an expanded portfolio of Marine georeferencing and motion compensation solutions designed to deliver performance at a variety of price points. The new line-up offers high-performance solutions to a broader cross-section of the hydrographic survey industry. All Applanix Marine products benefit from the optimal integration of GNSS and Inertial observables, with access to Trimble GNSS technology. At the entry-level of the expanded product portfolio, Applanix introduced the new POS MV SurfMaster. Incorporating Applanix’s proprietary SmartCal inertial calibration techniques, POS MV SurfMaster delivers robust georeferencing for small platforms, both manned and unmanned. SurfMaster is fully supported by Applanix’ post processing software POSPac MMS, and can deliver roll and pitch accuracy to 0.03 degrees, regardless of latitude or rate of vessel motion.
