The Trimble Digital Sensor System (DSS) 439 RapidOrtho system is a complete, ruggedized, turnkey digital aerial imaging solution for emergency first responders and military operations. Generating ortho products in seconds per image, and complete orthomosaics within hours of a mission, Trimble DSS 439 RapidOrtho lets you deliver decision-ready map products in the field.

The system integrates a medium-format aerial camera, a flight management system, a GNSS-Aided Inertial Direct Georeferencing system and a full suite of processing software. An available 250mm tactical lens option allows sub-10cm resolution at safe flying heights. DSS is certified as mapping-grade by the USGS.

Key Features:

  • Ultra-fast image delivery: on-board processing and our unique direct georeferencing allow for the rapid generation of map-ready ortho products within hours of landing.
  • Consistent, reliable, highly accurate mapping-grade results: mapping-grade system, as characterized by NASA Stennis, meets USGS and NASA image geometry and standards for mapping applications.
  • High resolution images from safe flying heights: 250mm lens option allows centimeter-scale ground sample distances (GSD).
  • Field-proven: deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq; in use with NOAA, NRL, FBI, and the Canadian DND.
  • Rapid deployment: Trimble DSS equipment is portable, rugged, tested for pressure, temperature and vibration. Trimble DSS can be operated by either 1 person or 2, minimizing the risk of in-field downtime. Installation on single-engine aircraft or light helicopter platforms can be completed within 1 hour.
  • Rugged, battle-hardened complete solution:
    • Ruggedized hardware
    • Flight planning software
    • Ortho software, DEM generation, and more—all customizable to your needs
    • Integrated computer-controlled azimuth mount for improved efficiency and automatic DEM extraction
    • Integrated direct georeferencing and sensor calibration
    • Field changeable metric lenses with various focal length options, providing maximum flexibility for all flying scenarios

System Components:

  • Direct Georeferencing for faster production of quality orthorectified imagery without the time, cost, or potential risk of placing personnel in dangerous environments.
    1. RapidOrtho Output: Achieve situational awareness in minutes instead of hours; using pre-existing DEM data. Individual 39MP orthophotos within 12 seconds per image.
    2. High-Precision RapidOrtho Output: Perform high accuracy mapping, change detection, and more; using self-extracted DEM; post-processed for extremely high orthophoto accuracy.
  • TrueSpectrum Image Chain Analysis for color and color infra-red (CIR) imagery, producing seamless mosaics.
  • Focal Plane Shutter with shutter speeds up to 1/4000 sec enabling automatic exposure control over most demanding scenes and minimizing motion smear.
  • Radiometric Calibration for optimum color balancing.
  • Three Applanix AeroLens™ options: 40mm, 60mm, 250mm. Designed and manufactured specifically for airborne environment by Carl Zeiss.
  • 250mm Tactical Lens option allows centimeter-scale images from safe flying heights (over 10,000 feet).
  • Applanix POSTrack™ Integrated Flight Management System.
  • Applanix POSPac MMS™ software, providing a complete directly georeferenced mapping workflow capability within a single GUI, allowing users to launch commands and adjust parameters within a single software suite.
  • Seamless integration with Trimble INPHO software (supplied), giving users high processing speed and automation in orthophoto and mosaic production.
