October 10, 2012 -- Geo Tactical Solutions, Inc. (GTS), a leading provider of advanced GPS cameras, GPS modules, and photo mapping software recently showcased their latest line of tactical GPS cameras and GPS modules at the 2012 Modern Day Marine Expo. Noteworthy products included the G700SE-M tactical GPS camera (enhanced with the new optional SE-7M GPS module), GeoMapr SAASM compatible GPS module, and a new line of custom-outfitted digital SLR cameras.
Modern Day Marine is co-sponsored by Marine Corps Base, Quantico—the Exposition's home base. MCB Quantico, home to the Combat Development Command and the Marine Corps Systems Command, is responsible for setting requirements, developing equipment and systems and purchasing the equipment and systems that the Marine Corps will rely on in the years to come. These important functions play a large part in positioning Modern Day Marine as the premier military equipment, systems, services and technology exposition.
“Along with SOFIC and AUSA, Modern Day Marine is one of the most important shows for us to participate in simply because the intelligence support tools that we provide are extremely critical and in great demand by our military given the challenges they currently face at home and abroad.” said Matt Kidd, President of Geo Tactical Solutions. “Several key product developments and strategic partnerships have made this year very exciting for us and Modern Day Marine was a great opportunity to engage with the industry, showcase our new capabilities, and get first-hand customer feedback.”
G700SE-M Tactical GPS Camera:
GTS’ flagship product, the G700SE-M, is a ruggedized GPS-enabled digital camera equipped with an array of features specially designed for advanced photo intelligence collection in the field.
“With the new SE-7M SAASM compatible GPS receiver, on-board electronic compass, GPS track-logs, and ‘memos’, the G700SE-M effectively and accurately captures the critical who, what, when, where and why of each photograph with a simple press of the shutter,” explained Andy Shannon, Military Sales Director at Geo Tactical Solutions. “The G700SE-M can also connect seamlessly to a laser range finder to automatically record the GPS coordinates of distant objects within a photograph, a unique capability that used to require tedious manual processing,” Mr. Shannon added. Additionally, the G700SE-M also supports extended zoom optics for long-range observation and photo-capture out to a distance of 2,000+ meters.
In an effort to provide an “end-to-end” solution, GTS also provides photo mapping software along with the G700SE-M tactical GPS camera to streamline and simplify the process of mapping and reporting photographic data collected in the field. Geotagged photographs captured with the G700SE-M are also compatible with most commonly used mapping programs including ArcGIS, FalconView, GeoSuite, TIGR, Palantir, and Google Earth.
GeoMapr – SAASM Compatible GPS Module:
GeoMapr is a light-weight, compact, SAASM compatible GPS module that connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or USB cable to any compatible digital camera. Once connected, GeoMapr automatically enhances digital photographs with GPS coordinates, date, time, compass heading, and mission specific memos (e.g. photographer’s name, unit ID, mission ID, etc.) ready for seamless input into mapping applications and debrief reports. “We developed GeoMapr as an affordable solution for bringing the powerful capabilities offered by the G700SE-M into any modern digital camera,” said Mr. Shannon. “This allows us to offer a much wider range of camera options to our customers without having them lose any important capabilities.”
Custom Outfitted Digital SLR Cameras:
Having an established partnership with Canon, GTS offers a line of Canon digital SLR cameras that work seamlessly with GeoMapr and GTS’ feature-rich photo mapping software to deliver enhanced photo-capture, mapping and reporting capabilities.
