SECO Manufacturing Company Inc. introduced the Satellite Stick, a portable, lightweight pole for GIS applications. The Satellite Stick is composed of six carbon fiber sections connected by an elastic shock cord. The sections are joined together with 303 stainless steel fittings. The pole is easy to set up, extends to 2 meters and tears down to fit in a typical GIS backpack with other gear. Other features include a snap-on 130-minute bubble, elastic strap (to bundle the pole together when broken down) and a fluorescent yellow system bag. Adding two adapters (#5126-010, sold separately) will accommodate a SECO data collector pole clamp and cradle and a standard SECO bipod when necessary.
