(Norcross, Ga.) – The Leica GPS900 family of products from Leica Geosystems are now available with even greater satellite tracking abilities, advanced color displays, and at an exceptionally affordable price. The heart of the GPS900 family includes the ATX900 GG GLONASS antenna with Leica Geosystems’ proven GNSS technology, and the RX900c WindowsCE color controller with removable CF memory card. Together as a fully scalable mid-range solution, the GPS900 RTK system is ideal for a wide range of jobs including foundation and drainage work, alignment stakeout, instant volume calculations, topographic and as-built surveys.

The Leica GPS900 rover offers a choice of controllers, including the Leica RX900 with internal memory and now the new Leica RX900c that features a one-quarter VGA color display with outstanding clarity and a removable CF-card for easy data transfer.

The new Leica ATX900 GG is a 72-channel GNSS antenna with outstanding satellite tracking characteristics- even to low altitude satellites and in adverse conditions. Compatible with both the Leica RX900 and Leica RX900c, the new ATX900 GG provides fast acquisition and Leica Geosystems’ patented SmartCheck technology increasing the overall reliability and performance of GPS900, particularly in demanding situations.

Carl Singleton, product marketing manager for Leica Geosystems, emphasizes, “In terms of versatility, speed and functionality, this is a powerhouse system, all packaged in an easily transportable, rugged case. GPS900 is the only mid-range RTK GPS system out there that offers upgradeability to future satellite positioning systems, such as Galileo, as they become more operational. Aligned with Leica’s SmartCheck+ and SmartTrack+ technologies, we’re able to deliver one of the world’s best performing GPS systems.”
