Trimble introduced two new products as part of its Connected Survey Site model-the Trimble R8 GNSS system and Trimble NetR5 reference station receiver with added Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) capabilities. The positioning products, with Trimble

R-Track technology, support GPS L2C and L5 signals as well as GLONASS. The new capabilities offer greater flexibility and more robust signal tracking to provide a seamless and streamlined workflow for all of the critical phases of surveying.

The Trimble NetR5 reference station is a multi-channel, multi-frequency GNSS receiver designed for use as a standalone reference station or as part of a GNSS infrastructure network solution. The Trimble NetR5 consumes very little power due to its Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) platform. It is easy to configure via its simple front panel; a software interface is not required. Large amounts of data can be collected, stored and transferred via the Trimble NetR5 receiver's expandable memory; the receiver also supports USB devices. The Trimble NetR5 offers "FTP Push," which automatically and securely uploads files. The receiver can also function as an FTP server for users wanting to retrieve files manually. The receiver has an internal battery that will act as backup in case of any external power failures. The software is available in eight languages, allowing users to control the receiver in their language of choice. (Trimble, Sunnyvale, Calif.)
