Trimble announced enhancements to its Trimble RTX correction services. Improvements in the high-accuracy correction service include convergence time reductions, more reliable and robust signals, and an easier workflow for surveyors. These enhancements further enable geospatial professionals to untether from the cost and complexities of GNSS base stations and complete fieldwork faster.
Surveyors in many regions worldwide can now spend less time in the field with CenterPoint RTX correction service, converging in typically 3 minutes compared with up to 15 minutes in the past. The breakthrough convergence-time reduction is available on Trimble GNSS receivers with ProPoint technology and will benefit land surveyors working around the globe by enabling them to start surveying faster. In addition, CenterPoint RTX now supports the BeiDou-III (BDS-III) constellation, which contributes to the convergence time improvements. Support for BDS-III and convergence time improvements is available globally via IP/cellular and regionally via satellite delivery. Convergence times for the CenterPoint RTX Fast regions remain unchanged at less than 1 minute. CenterPoint RTX Fast coverage is available coast-to-coast in the U.S. and Western Europe.
Geospatial professionals will be able to work more reliably in challenging GNSS environments, such as urban multipath or under tree canopy, due to the addition of BDS-III and also GPS III satellite signals into the Trimble RTX solution.
Using a Trimble receiver with ProPoint technology, Trimble Access field software and CenterPoint RTX correction services, surveyors will benefit from a more streamlined workflow that simplifies how they work in their local coordinate systems. Surveyors can now collect data using CenterPoint RTX correction services without the need for a site calibration or an offset.
