Trimble announces new airborne mapping systems

20 February 2014

Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) said it has made two new additions to its airborne LiDAR portfolio: the Trimble AX60i and AX80, both of which meet the demands of aerial survey operators for corridor and wide area mapping projects.

The new airborne systems, together with flight planning and analysis software tools, have been designed to provide rapid and efficient point cloud capture as well as high-resolution images and proven workflows with high productivity. The systems can be installed on either fixed wing or rotary aircraft.

An optional, fully-calibrated 80 Megapixel camera with forward motion compensation can be added to the AX60i and AX80 systems. The camera is integrated into the sensor head package and harmonized with the laser sub-system so that it does not need re-calibration each time the system is fitted to an aircraft.

Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Founded in 1978, Trimble is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif. Its website is at
