A GPS navigation device or a GPS receiver, is a device that is capable of receiving information from GPS satellites to then accurately calculate its geographical location. Therefore providing critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. In surveying, Survey-Grade GPS receivers can be used to position survey markers, buildings and road constructions.
Also, more broadly a GPS receiver could be a GNSS (Global Navigation Satelite System) receiver if it is capable of receiving information from various other GNSS Satelites like GLONASS or Galileo.
Benchmark GNSS / GPS Receiver
Benchmark Site Services had develop a small, lightweight and tough GNSS / GPS receiver with legendary tracking and performance. This receiver is capable of precise tracking carrier phases for most of the available signals. Consecuently bringing the accuracy of relative positioning down to cm-level values required by these applications.
Some of its specifications are:
- Future proof GNSS design: 220-channel All-in-View Tracking: GPS + GLONASS + Galileo + BeiDou + SBAS.
- Tilt and Heading MEMS sensors up to 30° tilt, log tilt or use the electronic bubble to level shots.
- Bright sunlight readable alpha-numeric panel with keyboard for quick setup of most modes of operation: Static Logging, Auto-Base, Auto-Rover, GSM and UHF channel selection.
- Rugged, reliable, small (4.8” diameter x 5.1” high), lightweight (3.3 lbs. with 2 batteries,) cast magnesium chassis with double-sealed gaskets, mechanically protected connectors and vibration dampened internal boards.
- USB: High-speed Thumb Drive interface for file transfer.
- Serial: 2 high-speed serial ports.
- Wi-Fi: 802.11 b/g/n; works as a Wi-Fi Hotspot; receiver fully configurable by Wi-Fi using standard web browsers.
- Dual, Hot Swappable Batteries: 12-hour RTK Rover Runtime.
- 32 GB High Speed Memory for logging static observation data.
