In a nutshell
SANDS is a real-time navigation and reporting system designed specifically for low-altitude aerial surveys. It provides navigation information to the pilot, showing the real-time location of the aircraft relative to the survey segment they need to fly over. It can be configured to automatically capture geo-located high-resolution images and gas-sensing data. It can also locate images taken from a handheld camera and has the capability of real-time in-flight reporting.
