SUNNYVALE, Calif.—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today the availability of its new FieldPoint RTX™ correction service for geospatial positioning applications. Powered by Trimble RTX™ technology, the multi-constellation correction service offers horizontal accuracy up to 10 centimeters (4 inches) at 1-sigma standard deviation or 20 centimeters (8 inches) at 2-sigma, without requiring the use of a base station or local VRS network.
Delivered via L-band satellite or IP, FieldPoint RTX is an ideal choice for geospatial professionals who are not using RTK as their primary correction source. The service can be used for mobile data collection and fixed asset management by utilities, municipalities and government agencies that require repeatable, high-accuracy GNSS corrections at a reasonable cost.
"FieldPoint RTX meets an important accuracy threshold for mapping and GIS professionals that require a versatile, satellite-delivered correction source accessible in even the most remote locations worldwide," said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble Advanced Positioning. "With FieldPoint RTX, customers now have more choices to meet their real-time accuracy requirements in the field."
The new Trimble FieldPoint RTX correction service is available now for the Trimble R2 GNSS receiver and the Trimble Mapping & GIS Geo 7X handheld. For more information, visit: http://www.trimble.com/positioning-services.
