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:
- Street address
- 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.
