Altus Positioning Systems announced the availability of the new Juniper Archer 2 field computer packaged with Altus’ APS-3 GNSS RTK receiver.

The Archer 2 is a handheld computer with an IP68 certification and MIL-STD-810G compliance, and it can operate between minus-30 to 60 degrees Celsius. It features a 1.0 GHz processor, 512MB RAM and 8GB flash storage.

This second-generation instrument introduces new features, including the IllumiView brilliant display; custom Overtime Technology intelligent Li-Ion battery yielding more than 20 hours service between charges; and a glove-friendly touch screen and keypad.

The APS-3 is a 136-channel GPS/GLONASS RTK receiver that includes an integrated quad-band GSM/GPRS modem, digital 406-470 MHz UHF transceiver and wireless Bluetooth connectivity. The flexible architecture allows the same device to be used either as a rover or base station. A popular feature is the dual hot-swappable Li-Ion batteries that allow field work to continue without interruption to change batteries.
