Cover All Aspects Of An Airborne Acquisition Project
The Omnitrack FMS was conceptualized and developed by Lead’Air, Inc. in our Kissimmee, FL facility designed as a complete replacement for the previous NexTrack 2 Flight Management System. As with our last systems, the Omnitrack is a combination of the very well-known Track’Air™ X-Track software and new hardware. Omnitrack can cover all aspects of an airborne acquisition project, from planning to final archiving of data. The system includes the complete X-Track Suite of Windows-based planning and reporting software as well as all necessary hardware for an aircraft acquisition flight.
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 controls two sensor connections that trigger two independent sensor conditions. It also provides connectivity to our stabilized gimbals and the system operator display. Also, the External Interface section provides various power connections and RJ-45 connectivity for other possible sensor options. The Omnitrack is a truly versatile system that can even expand to add additional functionality and connectivity.
Ruggedized aluminum housing
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.
Selectively configured, the computer software runs the X-Track snapSHOT in-flight software module at startup and fully protects the operating system from unintentional corruption. The touchscreen is a high-quality display with a wide viewing angle and provides backlighting suitable for day or night use. The system adapts ideally to any aircraft environment.
SnapSHOT controls the cameras and sensors and provides 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 (the 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 show in the background.
Wireless pilot display
The Omnitrack provides a Wireless Pilot display in the form of a Samsung 8-inch Tablet in special fan-cooled housings with a yoke mount that is powered directly by the Control Center. The power cable ensures that the tablet has continuous operation for the pilot on extended acquisition flights.

The Track’Air X-Track 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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
X-Track Tracker Database
The data produced and processed by Tracker is saved to a
built-in relational Microsoft ACCESS
database, which can be used by any number of programs. The
Lead'Air Inc & Track'Air BV are currently not hiring.
