Leica Geosystems Announces Future-Proof GNSS
February 19, 2009
Norcross - Future-proof GNSS ensures maximum productivity and reliability, today and tomorrow. Four independent Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) will be operational within the near future. With the new Leica GPS1200+ users can be certain that they are ready to get ahead of their competition. A four constellation GNSS will soon become reality delivering a new dimension in GNSS performance and efficiency. Leica Geosystems unique future-proof concept ensures that all existing Leica GPS1200 systems can be upgraded to the very latest technology available. In addition, it provides unprecedented upgradability, allowing users to add new capabilities to their application platforms – now and in the future – based on their business needs.
The newly introduced Leica GPS1200+ supports the new GPS L5 signal, GLONASS L1 and L2, and will also be able to track Galileo and Compass satellites when available. The flexible design of Leica GPS1200+ is 100% future-proof.
“Several forward-looking companies are investing in our future-proof technology and modernizing their mission-critical applications, while building on their previous investments in legacy systems, says Shannon Hixon, Product marketing Manager for Leica Geosystems Inc.. “Furthermore, they are also mitigating risk. It works no matter which way the economic winds blow, the strong growth, the rapid ROI, and significant cost savings are achieved rather quickly.“
Highest accuracy and reliability today, more accuracy and speed tomorrow – a real plus
GPS L5 is the new third GPS frequency which will allow increased redundancy, faster signal acquisition, and improved multipath performance – ultimately resulting in longer RTK ranges and faster ambiguity resolution. Galileo will add another 30 satellites to the GPS and GLONASS constellation providing additional benefits. With an average of 20 satellites in view 24/7, the speed and accuracy of GNSS will be further improved.
Proven SmartTrack+ and SmartCheck+ technology
Leica GPS1200+ includes the proven SmartTrack+ and SmartCheck+ technology. The instrument includes the third generation of SmartTrack+ measurement engines with 120 channels and offers enhanced signal processing and industry leading measurement quality. SmartCheck+ guarantees maximum reliability by continuously checking results.
