POS MV is a user-friendly, turnkey system designed and built to provide accurate position, heading, attitude, heave, and velocity data of your marine vessel and remote sensing equipment. With over one thousand systems deployed worldwide, POS MV is field-tested and proven in all conditions. POS MV blends GNSS data with angular rate and acceleration data from an IMU, and heading from GPS Azimuth Measurement System (GAMS) to produce a robust and accurate full six degrees-of-freedom position and orientation solution.
POS MV comes in 4 models:
All POS MV models are designed for use with multibeam sonar systems, enabling adherence to IHO (International Hydrographic Survey) standards on sonar swath widths of greater than ± 75 degrees under all dynamic conditions. At the entry-level is the POS MV SurfMaster, which delivers robust georeferencing for small platforms, both manned and unmanned. Fully supported by Applanix’ industry leading post processing software, POSPac MMS, SurfMaster delivers roll and pitch accuracy to 0.03 degrees. Wavemaster II and OceanMaster are designed for increasingly difficult conditions and performance requirements. The POS MV Elite is for users seeking the very highest level of performance available to the industry.
POS MV was used aboard HMS Enterprise for an ocean floor scan under the Red Sea. A Red Sea "Grand Canyon" was discovered. To see the article, click here.
