RTK for GSR1700 CSX L1

SOKKIA TOPCON has added real-time kinematic (RTK) functionality on the GSR1700 CSX L1 GNSS Receiver. The new AdVanceTM L1-RTK engine achieves initialisation in seconds for reliable centimetre accurate surveying similar to dual-frequency RTK, but at less than half the cost.   Superior RTK performance is made possible through the use of all available single-frequency satellite signals like GPS, GLONASS, and SBAS. The increased satellite coverage enables the receiver to work in areas where other GPS solutions cannot, such as in dense tree areas and urban settings. The GSR1700 CSX can still be purchased in its original static and stop-and-go surveying... (read more)

Low-cost Feature-rich RTK Receiver

SkyTraq Technology, a Taiwanese GNSS positioning technology company, has introduced S2525F8-RTK, a low-cost, low-power, single-frequency RTK receiver for applications requiring centimetre-level accuracy positioning. The multi-constellation GNSS RTK receiver can use 12 GPS, eight SBAS and six BDS signals and one QZSS signal. In situations where RTK fix is not possible, a Float RTK mode can be used for decimetre-level accuracy positioning. A moving-base mode is also supported for precise heading GPS compass application. Its 25mm x 25mm form factor, 3 gram weight and 250mW power consumption makes it ideal for any outdoor mobile applications requiring high-precision RTK positioning. S2525F8-RTK supports both base station and... (read more)
