Trimble VRS Now Service Launched in Estonia for High-Precision GNSS Positioning

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced the launch of Trimble VRS Now Service in Estonia. The commercial service provides surveyors, civil engineers and geospatial professionals across the country with instant access to real-time kinematic (RTK) Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) corrections without the need for a base station.

The Trimble service delivers centimeter-level RTK positioning for each GNSS receiver’s location anywhere in the network. The Trimble VRS Now Service supplies fast and accurate GNSS positioning for a variety of applications including surveying, urban planning, urban and rural construction, environmental monitoring, resource and territory management, disaster prevention and relief, and scientific research.

Service in Estonia is a continuation of Trimble’s focus on simplifying access to high-precision GNSS corrections around the world. Similar services are operating in Europe across Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Spain’s greater Madrid area as well as in Florida, Iowa, northern Illinois, and Colorado’s Front Range in the U.S. The service has been developed for easy use and for a wide range of user applications.

Trimble VRS Now provides service to subscribers, utilizing a network of reference stations, which cover an area of approximately 45,000 square kilometers (17,500 square miles) across the country of Estonia. Users connect into the system using a wireless connection; the software acknowledges the users’ field positions and provides a stream of correction data that enable centimeter accuracy throughout the network.

Trimble VRS Now represents a major advance in precision surveying productivity. No longer dependant on a field base station, precision GNSS surveys can be up and running in minutes. And without the need for base station hardware, the user’s GNSS receivers can now work independently as rovers-saving time and money.

A subscription to Trimble VRS Now, a GNSS rover, and mobile phone connection is all a user needs to begin surveying or collecting data. Surveyors and other users can switch on their receiver and real-time corrections will be available in seconds. In most cases, no further GNSS investment is necessary. Trimble VRS Now works with many GNSS survey instruments from a variety of manufacturers.

Launched in conjunction with the Trimble VRS Now service, the Trimble VRS Now H-Star service is also available in Estonia. H-Star technology leverages advanced GPS receivers, sophisticated field logging software, and reference stations from the Trimble VRS Now network. A subscription to the Trimble VRS Now H-Star service, a Trimble H-Star compatible GPS receiver and a mobile phone connection, give mapping and Geographic Information System (GIS) professionals the ability to obtain real-time, subfoot to decimeter accuracy consistently in the field.
