Magellan  Announces ProMark 500 Multi-Constellation GNSS RTK Receiver
Powerful BLADE™ technology extends GNSS performance limits in difficult conditions

Santa Clara, Calif. – Feb 19, 2008 -- Magellan, the originator of GPS + GLONASS GNSS signal processing is this month introducing the ProMark 500,  a dual-frequency GNSS receiver that processes GPS, GLONASS and SBAS signals to offer land surveyors fast, real-time centimeter-level accurate surveying. 

High-end technology and lightweight design
The ProMark 500 delivers state-of-the art RTK features in a light, cable-free rover that provides maximum mobility and flexibility. The embedded Magellan BLADE (Baseline Accurate Determination Engine) technology includes patented GPS+GLONASS processing algorithms insuring maximum benefit from the added GLONASS signals.  BLADE also consists of other algorithms that provide fast initialization, long-range accuracy, and robust signal tracking.  The ProMark 500 is upgradeable for tomorrow's evolving satellite constellations.

All-in-one flexibility
The ProMark 500 combines high performance with a flexible all-in-one communications system that enables NTRIP or direct IP real-time corrections via a GSM/GPRS enabled cell-phone module; a UHF connection for either a Pacific Crest or Magellan UHF radio.

Feature-rich surveying solution
-The ProMark 500 uses the new version of Magellan’s FAST Survey field software, fully re-designed to optimize the functionality and performance of the ProMark 500.  FAST Survey meets the demanding needs of land and construction surveying requirements, including compatibility with a wide range of survey instruments, extensive data formats and local coordinate system availability. These easy-to-use features make it possible for professional surveyors and novice GPS users alike to run complete survey jobs, including stake out, road surveys and combining projects done in association with total stations.
- The ProMark 500 field terminal, the MobileMapper® CX, includes a sub-meter GPS receiver plus an open operating system to easily load customized third-party field software. Users will find that the ProMark 500 cable-free rover solution is particularly easy-to-use, compact and light-in-weight for all day on-the-go use.
- The ProMark 500 is available with GNSS Solutions, Magellan’s highly-regarded office software suite for post-processing field data. New in GNSS Solutions is the ability to download data from multiple reference stations to provide a post-processed network solution for measurement quality control. 

BLADE Technology
Magellan’s BLADE technology introduces a unique patented way to use multiple GNSS constellations for high-accuracy positioning, maximizing the benefit of adding extra satellites to its already stellar GPS performance. BLADE insures fast initialization, long-range accuracy, and provides superior performance in occluded-sky environments.  With its new RTK solution, Magellan brings to the market a unique blend of technologies which increases RTK availability. You will be able to not only take advantage of currently available GPS, GLONASS, and SBAS signals, but also be comfortable knowing that you can upgrade your receiver to meet the evolution to future constellations, such as Galileo.
