The VRS3NET software provides users with a suite of tools for creating and managing a VRS network that is designed to support current and future GNSS constellations.

LAS VEGAS -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) introduced its next generation VRS network solution-Trimble VRS3NET software. Built on Microsoft .NET’s state-of-the-art architecture and more than 10 years of experience deploying network solutions worldwide, the new VRS3NET software provides users with a suite of tools for creating and managing a VRS network that is designed to support current and future Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellations.

The announcement was made at the 2009 Trimble Dimensions User Conference.

Trimble VRS networks enable precise, real-time GNSS positioning through the distribution of correction data. They provide a highly reliable and cost-effective means for surveyors and other geospatial professionals to work faster and achieve accurate GNSS results for a variety of positioning applications including geodetic and cadastral surveying, road and bridge construction, mapping, agriculture, earthquake and tectonic plate movement monitoring, and scientific research, as well as other high-accuracy positioning applications. VRS networks are today considered an integral tool for providing fast, high precision, wide area positioning in countries around the world.

Trimble VRS3NET software is based on Microsoft .NET architecture and Microsoft SQL server. This advanced architecture provides the technical flexibility and scalability needed to accommodate future GNSS and Satellite-based Augmentation Systems (SBAS), operating systems, and the addition of evolving IT hardware. Trimble VRS3NET software runs autonomously on a network, yet is highly secure and features an intuitive user interface.

To assure users receive the highest quality data, network integrity monitoring is fully integrated into the software, supplying the operator with a full suite of tools to continuously monitor system health, including variable tectonic plate motions. Any network variation outside the user-defined thresholds is automatically detected, logged, reported or alarmed so that high-quality correction services to field users is preserved.

Trimble VRS3NET software also provides network operators with advanced Web application tools such as billing and accounting modules that allow them to easily automate a variety of commercial tasks. VRS3NET software provides innovative tools through the use of Google Maps technology. Operators can now monitor and query in real time the status of all Continuous Operating Reference Station (CORS) components in the network, as well as monitor rovers that are logged into the network to know the locations of their crews.

There are currently more than 200 Trimble infrastructure network installations throughout the world including in: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, China, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Republic of South Africa, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom and U.S. For a partial reference list of Trimble VRS installations visit:

Trimble VRS³NET software offers system operators the tools needed to install, monitor, maintain and expand a precise positioning network. It is expected to be available in April 2009. For more information, email: Infrastructure_Sales@Trimble.
