Trimble Releases CenterPoint RTX Correction Service Into Geospatial Markets

Stocks in this article: TRMB





ESSEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that its Trimble® CenterPoint™ RTX™ correction service will be available to survey and land administration professionals around the world. Powered by Trimble RTX technology, the GPS, GLONASS and QZSS enabled correction service can offer better than 4 centimeter (1.5 inch) repeatable horizontal accuracy, without requiring the use of a base station or local VRS network.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2013, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

In addition to previously announced Agriculture devices, the CenterPoint RTX correction service is now compatible with the Trimble ProXRT for Land Administration and the Trimble R10 GNSS receivers. The worldwide subscription service is expected to be available to geospatial users in the fourth quarter of 2013.

No Additional Hardware Required

Delivered via L-band satellite, CenterPoint RTX is ideal for geospatial professionals who are not using RTK as the primary correction source. Advantageous in remote areas that lack local infrastructure and/or cellular coverage, the corrections are delivered directly to the GNSS receiver. No additional hardware, including radios, antennas, or even cellular data plans, is required to use the correction service.

"By combining global coverage, fast initialization times, and high-accuracy correction data, Trimble CenterPoint RTX offers geospatial professionals unprecedented operating freedom," said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble's Positioning Services Division. "We are committed to offering field-proven positioning corrections to address a variety of users' needs across applications and markets, starting with agriculture and now reaching into the geospatial markets."
