The EO/IR sensor, commonly known as the FLIR camera contains a GPS and an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). Together, these devices are able to accurately determine the position of the EO/IR sensor in ‘space’ - or more simply - in the sky. MISSIONMAP receives telemetry data from the EO/IR sensor’s IMU and GPS which is then interpreted to display the position of the aircraft, and where the EO/IR camera is pointing on a map. MISSIONMAP is also able to control the EO/IR sensor by sending it an instruction to point at, and stay ‘locked’ onto a set of co-ordinates.
With a compatible gyrostabilised EO/IR sensor, MISSIONMAP lets you:
Point the camera at addresses
Point the camera at points of interest
Point the camera at UTM grid references
Point the camera at a latitude/longitude
Point the camera at user provided data such as fuel depots, landing sites, observations posts etc.
Track an object that has been "thermally locked"
When viewing a target with the camera, you can 'mark' and store position information such as:
Suburb | Locality | State
UTM grid references
Street directory grid reference
Topographic map name
LOGIMAP has forged relationships with the market leaders in airborne gyrostabilised camera technology. Systems not listed here can generally be integrated with MISSIONMAP upon provision of the systems communication protocols. Contact us for clarification of integration requirements. MISSIONMAP is currently in use, or qualified for use with the following manufacturers systems.
