Trimble Launches New Geospatial Solutions for Aerial Imaging

ESSEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today new additions to its aerial imaging portfolio —the Trimble® AX60, a new airborne LIDAR system; and an updated version of its Inpho® processing software.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2013, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

The Trimble AX60 is a versatile system that can be operated at up to 15,500 feet above ground level (AGL), which meets the requirements for aerial survey projects such as wide area mapping, corridor mapping and remote sensing. Together with integrated flight planning and analysis software tools, the platform has been specifically designed as end-to-end solution that provides enhanced mission flexibility, rapid and efficient point cloud capture, excellent resolution, in-service reliability and high-productivity workflows. The Trimble AX60 can be installed on either fixed wing or rotary aircraft.

The AX60 has a 400 kHz laser pulse repetition rate (PRR) with a single channel downward-looking laser. An optional, fully calibrated 80 Megapixel camera with forward motion compensation can be added. The camera is integrated into the sensor head package and harmonized with the laser system so that it does not need re-calibration each time the solution is fitted to an aircraft. Another key feature is Trimble's rotating polygon mirror technology for beam deflection that can allow survey missions to be completed faster. This technology provides higher accuracy and a uniform distribution of laser points across the entire field-of-view to widen the usable swath width. Operators can reduce track overlap or duplication, or fly at higher altitudes to achieve a given resolution. Together with a high precision positioning system, integral power supplies, and an in-flight monitoring tool, the Trimble AX60 can allow operators to lower the complexity of airborne LIDAR surveys while increasing the quality of the output.

"The performance, operational flexibility and reliability of the Trimble AX60 make it an ideal solution for aerial survey companies," said Phil Sawarynski, business area director of Imaging Solutions for Trimble's Geospatial Division. "In addition, the Trimble AX60 has been designed as a true end-to-end solution, which includes field-proven Trimble flight planning software and Trimble Inpho analysis software. Since the hardware and software are all supplied by Trimble, operators can have confidence that the complete solution works together seamlessly, and that the flight planning and post-mission analysis suites can enable them to provide a high quality service to their customers."

In conjunction with the new airborne laser scanner launch, Trimble also announced its Inpho version 5.6 processing software suite. Version 5.6 now includes the UASMaster module, which has been designed for the complete processing of data acquired by remote piloted aircraft systems (RPAS/UAS). The module georeferences RPAS/UAS images and generates point clouds and othophoto mosaics that allow users to create high quality deliverables for CAD and GIS applications. The UASMaster module is fully compatible with Inpho photogrammetric software modules.

Availability
The Trimble AX60 solution is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2014 through Trimble's Geospatial Division distribution network. The Inpho version 5.6 and UASMaster is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2013.
