London, UK: Applanix, mobile mapping and positioning products and solutions provider, introduced POS MV system, capable of receiving Fugro’s Marinestar positioning service. By using the Marinestar positioning service, POS MV can deliver significant benefits:
– Large area of operations: no geographical limitations
– Easy to use: no additional hardware to purchase, integrate and maintain
– High accuracy: position data is accurate to less than 1 decimetre
– Efficiency: data is produced in real-time
The Marinestar positioning service from Fugro includes Marinestar GPS – a GPS augmentation service and Marinestar GNSS, an augmentation service for both the GPS and GLONASS Navigation Satellite Systems. By integrating Marinestar capability, the POS MV can operate off shore and without reference stations, significantly expanding its operating environment.
“The Applanix POS MV is trusted throughout the hydrographic community to provide accurate position and orientation information for georeferencing multibeam sonar and vessel-borne LiDAR,” said Peter Stewart, Director of Marine Products at Applanix. “POS MV with Marinestar capability takes its performance to a new level and to new environments. By expanding the areas of operation, hydrographic surveyors can maximise the return of their investment in multibeam sonar and laser scanning hardware using the POS MV.”
