TORRANCE, Calif. – Altus Positioning Systems announced its new handheld ProCyon system for GIS applications.

The new ProCyon from Altus integrates the flexible, rugged Psion WORKABOUT PRO handheld computer with Altus’ APS-3 RTK GNSS receiver for a powerful GIS data-acquisition platform.

The ProCyon system delivers one-centimeter RTK accuracy using an external antenna, integrated camera and quad-band GSM modem. Additionally, the ProCyon has hardware expansion slots, making the addition of new modules fast and easy, as well as a range of available add-ons, including fingerprint scanners and the largest selection of RFID readers on any handheld device.

The ProCyon Windows Mobile operating system accommodates ESRI ArcPad and ArcGIS applications. Both programs utilize NMEA messages that are standard outputs from the integrated GNSS receiver in the ProCyon.

“The ProCyon is built on the industry-standard platform of the Psion WORKABOUT, one of the world’s top-selling Windows Mobile devices,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president, Altus Positioning Systems. “The ProCyon is an answer to the needs of many utilities already using Psion products.”

Altus is showcasing the ProCyon and other GPS/GNSS products in booth 2802 at the Esri 2012 Users Conference in San Diego.
