New Magellan ProMark 3 RTK Alters the RTK Landscape
ProMark3 operates in two modes; base + rover and rover only. The rover can be connected to a real-time network through a GPRS-enabled cell phone using NTRIP and direct IP. The second mode of RTK operation, base + rover, employs an efficient plug-and-play spread-spectrum radio solution that does not require a license or separate configuration integrated with ProMark3 RTK.
BLADE technology – Magellan’s proprietary GNSS processing solution -- enables ProMark3 RTK to outperform single-frequency RTK receivers and grants real-time performances in a lightweight handheld system. This exclusive technology uses dual satellite systems (GPS + SBAS) to drive rapid initialization, reliability and real-time centimeter level accuracy to make the ProMark3 RTK a new reference for RTK surveying.
ProMark3 RTK also offers the option of FAST Survey. This advanced field software is typically associated with more expensive RTK systems and makes it possible for experienced professional surveyors and novice RTK users alike to run complete survey jobs, including stake-out, roading, combining projects done in association with total stations, and much more.
Current ProMark3 users can upgrade their systems with the new RTK version. Promark3 RTK is planned for May release. For more information regarding Magellan Professional survey, GIS and GNSS board solutions, visit pro.magellangps.com.
