Trimble DSS 500: Flexible and Efficient Mapping Solution
January 31st, 2013 by Matthew Langan
In October 2012, Trimble announced that launch of its DSS 500, which is the company’s latest medium-format, directly georeferenced aerial imaging system.
Capable of producing full-resolution, ortho-rectified imagery in real time with In-FlightOrtho™ technology, the Trimble Digital Sensor System (DSS) is designed as a high-productivity, mapping-grade solution for color orthophoto and vertical mapping applications.
“The DSS 500 with In-FlightOrtho pushes the limits of efficiency like no other medium-format aerial mapping system,” said Joe Hutton, director of Airborne Products at Applanix, a Trimble Company, in the press release launching the new product. “The DSS 500’s ability to produce full-resolution, orthorectified imagery as it is captured makes it an ideal solution for air-to-ground quality control and time-critical mapping. Watching the orthos produced in real time gives users extremely high levels of confidence in their data collection. And now with significantly smaller, lighter, lower power and less complex hardware—just three cables are required for most installations—aerial mapping has never been easier, faster or more efficient. It is the most advanced Digital Sensor System that we have ever produced.”

The DSS 500 system uses hardware and software designed to make mapping fast and efficient. Capable of producing highly accurate orthophotos, stereo photos and mosaics, the DSS 500 is a flexible platform that can be customized to meet a variety of needs and price points. With multiple camera options, the system is ideal for a variety of data collection needs ranging from corridor and GIS mapping to disaster response and tactical mapping.
