LEICA GEOSYSTEMSintroduced the SmartRover, an all-on-the-pole RTK GPS surveying instrument that weighs 2.8 kg (6.16 lb). Consisting of the Leica AT1230 SmartAntenna and Leica 1250 Controller, the SmartRover is designed to be fully compatible with the Leica SmartStation. The SmartRover features Leica Geosystems' exclusive SmartCheck technology; the SmartCheck algorithms provide centimeter-level position accuracy at update rates up to 20 Hz with 99.99 percent reliability for base lines up to 30 km. In addition, the SmartRover's SmartTrack engine acquires all visible satellites within seconds, tracks to low elevations, measures beneath trees and provides multipath mitigation and advanced anti-jamming capability. The SmartRover incorporates Windows CE and Bluetooth technologies. This facilitates direct contact to the office via the Internet to upload and download data to enhance survey productivity. With its integrated CF card, data can be seamlessly exchanged with Leica System 1200 instruments to provide full X-Function capability. All System 1200 application software is also available on the new RX 1250 Controller. (Leica Geosystems, Norcross, Ga.)
