Wins tender to monitor agricultural production

May 15th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Altus Positioning Systems has announced that its German representative, Josef Attenberger, has won a major tender to supply 58 APS-3M survey receivers to the Baden-Württemberg Geoinformation and Land Development office (LGL). The new order for 58 units follows on the 121 receivers previously delivered under a contract awarded by LGL to Josef Attenberger in 2011. The APS-3Ms are being used by LGL surveyors primarily as control for monitoring and verifying agricultural production under the European Union Integrated Administration and Control System (InVeKoS) program, as well as rearrangement of vineyard areas and other daily surveying applications. The receivers are integrated with LGL’s in-house Gisela-Mobil software. The APS-3M receivers are fully approved for local Invekos control by the German certification authority TÜV-SÜD to meet the EU regulations. The APS-3M’s integrated modem provides a high degree of flexibility to sustain continuous RTK operations. The modem can connect via GSM or NTRIP to the German SAPOS correction data service. In case of a capacity overload on the NTRIP net, the surveyors can easily switch to the GSM direct dial-in connection and continue to maintain a steady data stream.
