SOKKIA Creates SDR Level 5 V5.51 Software

May 1, 2004
SOKKIA created SDR Level 5 V5.51 software. SDR Level 5 offers topographic survey, stakeout, roading and coordinate geometry (COGO) capabilities, along with the ability to switch between GPS and terrestrial sensors. Version 5.51 has been upgraded to provide support for the GSR2650 LB receiver. Data formats supported include OmniSTAR HP, OmniSTAR VBS, Proprietary (RTK), CDGPS and WAAS. For the Axis3 receiver, data formats are supported for OmniSTAR VBS, Beacon, CDGPS and WAAS. WAAS has also been added as a data format choice for SOKKIA's high-end L1/L2 receivers (requires an authorization code). SDR Level 5 V5.51 includes a new "Position Mode," which allows WGS84 positions to be recorded at the GPS rover end. Other features include new installations for the Juniper Allegro and iPAQ Pocket PC handheld data collectors. Enhanced fonts and screen formatting have been added to allow for more data on display.
