Trimble CenterPoint RTX Correction Service Now Available For Heavy Civil Construction Applications

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today that its innovative Trimble ® CenterPoint™ RTX™ correction service is now available for heavy civil construction applications. Available worldwide as a subscription service, CenterPoint RTX will offer construction companies a flexible and easy to deploy option for conducting pre-bid reconnaissance and initial site measurements without using a traditional base station.

"Offering CenterPoint RTX for heavy construction applications further extends the Trimble Connected Site strategy to simplify site operations. CenterPoint RTX will make it easier to collect high-quality data in the early phases of site establishment, improving material estimates and job bids," said Roz Buick, vice president and general manager of Trimble's Heavy Civil Construction Division. "With more accurate material estimates and bids, contractors can incur fewer change orders and avoid unnecessary costs and delays."  

Freedom to Work without a Base Station

Based on Trimble RTX technology, CenterPoint RTX is a satellite-delivered positioning source that streams GNSS corrections to rover systems with the Trimble SPS985 GNSS Smart Antenna, SPS985L GNSS Smart Antenna or SPS855 GNSS Modular Receiver. There is no need to have an additional data plan or additional hardware.

The CenterPoint RTX service is the ideal correction source for construction sites in the pre-bid and site planning phases. Construction surveyors and estimating teams can use CenterPoint RTX to perform topographic surveys, estimate quantities and conduct site planning quickly and easily, before a base station is needed on site for machine control and other high-accuracy applications.

"Trimble strives to provide advanced GNSS correction services that fit our customer's specific needs and applications," said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble's Positioning Services Division. "For the heavy civil construction industry, this means a job crew can arrive on a new construction site and begin conducting site measurements and collecting data right away. CenterPoint RTX also makes it easier to work on multiple construction sites with the same rover system. There is no need to pair the rover with an existing base station at each individual site."

Availability

Trimble CenterPoint RTX is a subscription service available through Trimble Positioning Services in North America, South America, most of Europe, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Africa, Asia and Australasia.
