To meet the needs of all users who require GIS DGPS systems and rugged data collection platform, Sokkia has combined its Axis GPS system with the SDR8100 data collector. This complete package is now available for $4,995.00.

The light weight, 14-ounce SDR8100 bridges the gap between pure pen-based and key-based mobile data collection solutions, Leroy Sorenson, GPS district manager, and sales manager for the Western United States said. It's durability meets the needs of many environments and applications, including accident reconstruction and emergency management.

Sokkia's Axis system integrates a Global Positioning System (GPS)/beacon receiver with an optional pen-based computer software package to accomplish real-time mapping and data collection. Powering the Axis system is a 12- channel GPS receiver with the added feature of an internal, dual-channel beacon receiver. With its rugged,compact and lightweight design,as well as enough rechargeable battery life to last an entire work day,the Axis receiver is able to withstand the most challenging field conditions and achieve 1-5 meter accuracy.
