About Applanix Corporation

Applanix Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Trimble, designs, builds, delivers and supports products and solutions designed specifically for the hydrographic survey industry. Even in the harshest marine environments, our products and solutions provide robust, reliable and repeatable positioning and motion compensation solutions from moving boats and vessels. Marine-based mobile mapping and positioning with Applanix technology not only cuts costs associated with marine surveys, it also delivers tremendous accuracy with faster times to completion and improved quality of data. 


POS MV blends GNSS data with angular rate and acceleration data from an IMU and heading from GNSS 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:

  • POS MV SurfMaster / SurfMaster One
  • POS MV WaveMaster II
  • POS MV OceanMaster
  • POS MV Elite

All POS MV models are designed for use with multibeam sonar systems, enabling adherence to IHO standards on sonar swath widths of greater than ± 75 degrees under all dynamic conditions.  Benefits of POS MV include:

  • More robust georeferencing in the most difficult GNSS environments
  • Robust heave in a wide dynamic range
  • Increased productivity
  • Accurate attitude in all dynamics
  • No timing errors
