TORRANCE, Calif., March 7, 2012 – Altus Positioning Systems is now certified to sell its high-precision APS-3 GNSS surveying products in Russia.
The certification was awarded by the Russian Federal Agency on
Technical Regulation and Metrology (ROSSTANDART) in late 2011.
Moscow-based Technokauf LLC, a provider of surveying equipment and
software, managed the certification process and will resell the certified Altus
products in Russia.
“During testing, we found the Altus APS-3 high-precision GNSS
receiver to be one of the best modern receivers with outstanding technical
characteristics. The unit includes an open architecture, and reliably received
signals from GPS, GLONASS and SBAS satellites,” said Valentin
Tsukanov, general director of Technokauf. “Extreme temperature tolerance is
very important in Russia. The Altus receivers operated dependably in
temperatures ranging from -40 to +65 degrees Celsius. We also tested the Altus
equipment to ensure it met all of the parameters noted in the user manual and
other official documents, especially the accuracy in static and RTK
“The strenuous testing of our products, performed in various
conditions, validates the reliability of Altus’ technology,” said Neil Vancans,
president of Altus. “This significant certification opens up an important new
market for us. We see considerable opportunity for growth in Russia within the
construction, oil and gas, renovation and industries, as well as architecture
and infrastructure projects.”
The Altus 136-channel APS-3 is a compact, lightweight,
portable GNSS RTK receiver. It is based on the
high-precision Septentrio multi-frequency AsteRx2e engine. The unit
is completely configurable from the data collector via Bluetooth for either
base or rover operation with the internal UHF radio or for network rover
operation with the internal quad-band GSM/GPRS modem. Its removable 2-GB SD
card enables plug-and-play of raw data transfer for post processing.
Technokauf LLC supplies surveying equipment and software to
Russia and CIS countries. The company’s staff includes experienced survey
professionals, and resells well-known brands manufactured in the USA, Germany,
