Geo Tactical Solutions, Inc. (GTS), a leading provider of professional-grade GPS-enabled cameras, GPS modules and photo mapping software recently showcased their latest line of products at the 2012 GEOINT Symposium in Orlando, Florida. Noteworthy products included the G700SE-M tactical GPS camera (enhanced with the optional SE-7M GPS module), GeoMapr - SAASM compatible GPS module, and a new line of custom-outfitted Canon digital SLR cameras.
“Based on the successful adoption of our technology by the U.S. military and numerous federal and local government agencies, we’re confident in the existing potential for our technology to benefit organizations in the broader geospatial intelligence community. And this year’s GEOINT Symposium was the perfect opportunity to officially introduce our capabilities to this audience,” said Matt Kidd, President at Geo Tactical Solutions.
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, Business Development Director at Geo Tactical Solutions. “The G700SE-M can also connect seamlessly to a laser range finder to automatically record the GPS coordinates of a distant object within a photograph, a unique capability that previously required 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 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 wide selection of Canon digital SLR cameras that work seamlessly with GeoMapr and GTS’ photo mapping software to deliver enhanced photo-capture, mapping and reporting capabilities to the end user.
