The Trimble DSS aerial imaging solution was
designed to produce orthomaps to
increase productivity, achieving a 1:2 or
1:3 ratio of flying time vs. processing time,
without compromising accuracy.
NOAA NGS Division uses the DSS for the
Coastal Mapping Program.

Productive Photogrammetric Mapping.
A mission could be flown one day, and the map could
be delivered the next day*.
The DSS’ direct georeferencing reduces or
eliminates the hassle of ground control points
and Aerial triangulation.

The flexibility of interchangeable lenses allow you to capture the corridor swaths (or wide
area coverage) that you need for increased productivity.
Rapid Response Applications:
Disaster assessment and
Law enforcement and security
Critical infrastructure mapping
Military tactical reconnaissance
Insurance mapping
Emergency GIS support

The Trimble DSS is currently being used in the combat
zones of Iraq and Afghanistan, supplying NATO
soldiers with high-accuracy orthomaps.
The DSS RapidOrtho produces maps at near real-time
(1:1 flying: processing ratio). Soldiers depend on
updated map information to plan missions that
preserve their lives.
Compact. Flexible. Rapid Deployment.
