OMNITRACK

Cover All Aspects Of An Airborne Acquisition Project


placeholder

The OMNITRACK has been conceptualized and developed by Lead’Air in our Kissimmee, FL facilities as a complete replacement for our previous NexTrack 2 Flight Management System. As with our previous systems the OMNITRACK is a combination of the very well-known Track'Air™ XTrack software and new hardware that covers all aspects of an airborne acquisition project from planning to final archiving of the data. The system includes the complete XTrack Suite of Windows based planning and reporting software as well as all necessary hardware for an aircraft acquisition flight.

Features

More functionality than any of our previous FMS

The OMNITRACK Control Center delivers more functionality than any of our previous Flight Management Systems. The FMS module has two sensor connections that are independent, the second is a backup. It also provides connectivity to our stabilized gimbals and the system operator display. In addition, the External Interface section provides various power connections and RJ-45 connectivity for other possible sensor options. The OMNITRACK is a truly customizable system that can even be expanded to add additional functionality and connectivity.


Ruggedized aluminum housing

The Sensor Operator flat panel display is a bright LVDS specially designed touch screen in a ruggedized aluminum housing. The engineered housing is in accordance with the Flat Display Mounting Interface (FDMI) standards.

Incredibly fast performance

With a Next-Gen Intel Core i5 processor providing incredibly fast performance, Windows 10 powerful operating system, and a crisp, bright display, the Omnitrack has demonstrated it is perfectly suitable for cockpit operation.

The computer software is selectively configured to run the XTrack snapSHOT in-flight software module at startup and the operating system is fully protected from unintentional corruption. The touchscreen is a high quality display with a wide viewing angle and backlighting suitable for day or night use. The system adapts ideally to any aircraft environment.

SnapSHOT is used to control the camera or sensor and to provide navigation information to the pilot. SnapSHOT assists the crew in taking the best course of action by continually displaying the current status of the mission. Critical FAA (USA only) aeronautic information (restricted airspace, danger areas, international boundaries, etc.) can be displayed together with the limits of the project. Raster maps and aeronautical charts can also be shown on the background.


Wireless pilot display

The OMNITRACK provides a Wireless Pilot display as an iPad Tablet in a special fan cooled holder with a yoke mount, powered directly from the Control Center. The power cable insures that the tablet has continuous operation for the pilot on extended acquisition flights.

Notable Specifications

  • Controls most LiDAR systems and aerial sensors.

XTrack Software


The Track’Air XTrack planning software includes 5 independent software modules tightly integrated by means of a common database. All these programs allow the use of raster maps and DEM data in the planning process. General descriptions of each module can be found below:

placeholder snapXYZ

This module allows the planner to define project limits and background shapes by typing or loading coordinates into a specific text-driven header. The planner can import a variety of CAD files, including DXF, SHP, DCW, or KML files. You employ the data as area or background drawings during the flight planning and inflight acquisition process.

Additionally, the preparation of individual flight runs or a block of runs from existing coordinate text files can be added to a flight plan header. You can accomplish this by copy/pasting or direct typing. The module includes a graphical viewer for a quick inspection of the data.

placeholder snapVIEW

This module allows you to open, import, or save a variety of georeferenced topographic maps and imagery from around the world. As well, it interfaces with Google Maps, Bing Maps, or Web Map Services available online. A selection of drawing tools is available for defining the project limits using screen digitizing on the available raster backgrounds.

From raster images, you can draw a single polygon as a project limit or create outlines of specific topographic features and details. Saving the raster image in the Database allows you to access it from most modules. The polygons or lines are then used by snapPLAN to create the flight plans. This module is essential during the planning process.

placeholder snapPLAN

This module has a nearly countless number of options to create flight plans. With automated as well as manual functionality, the system allows you to create and optimize blocks of runs and single photo strips. The software supports geographical and grid-based pinpoint block planning. snapPLAN can manually or automatically adjust runs or strips for terrain altitude deviations from existing DEM data.

placeholder snapBASE

The module that is the hub of the Tracker32 Software Suite has a variety of management tools used to check and track the status and progress of projects. The access MDB database captures a tremendous amount of data during the acquisition. The Project Manager or flight planner employs this to finalize flight plans before missions as well as updating the office database with the data acquired or generated during the flight, from the acquisition computers.

placeholder snapPLOT

The module name says it all. This module is a printing, plotting, and exporting utility specially designed for the automated production of aerial survey indices and report documents. An unlimited number of layouts for specific printers can be saved as a means of standardizing or customizing the index you wish to create. Customizable legends, titles, and adding your logo are all possible in this versatile software. Also, the planning and acquisition data can be exported as a dxf file to utilize in other CAD functional programs.

placeholder XTrack Tracker Database

The data produced and processed by Tracker is saved to a built-in relational Microsoft ACCESS mdb database, which can be used by any number of programs. The benefits are:

  • Planning and acquisition data stored in one place and easily transferred between computers.
  • Data is captured in a structured and logical way using the concepts of a relational database.
  • Data easily accessed with the Microsoft Access structured query language (SQL) for developing customized databases, applications, add-ons, or extensions that access the data directly from the Tracker.mdb database. The Tracker database can become part of a new or existing geographic information system (GIS).
