Applanix manufactures position and orientation systems (POS) for mobile mapping applications such as aerial photogrammetry, marine hydrography and road and rail mapping. The POS products use GNSS-aided inertial navigation technology to provide high-rate, continuous and accurate position and orientation data. Applanix also manufactures a medium format aerial camera system called the digital sensor system (DSS). The DSS contains everything needed to produce high quality orthophotos except the airplane.
