New lightweight GNSS receiver

May 27th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Carlson recently introduced the Carlson NR3 network rover. Weighing less than a kilogram, the rover delivers highly reliable GNSS RTK for land surveying, GIS, and other data collection uses. Able to be used as a base or rover, it utilises all four satellite constellations and provides triple-frequency tracking on GPS, Glonass and Galileo. Incorporating multipath and ionospheric detection, the receiver maintains accuracy and continued operation despite shocks, vibration, or other interference. Designed to work seamlessly with Carlson SurvCE or SurvPC and their new Hybrid+ feature, the receiver is easy to mount and balance as it utilises the optional Hybrid+ in Carlson SurvCE/PC that enables simultaneous interaction with GNSS and a robotic total station. Produced by Septentrio with Carlson specifications, the Carlson NR3 has an integrated 4G LTE cellular modem, plus WiFi and Bluetooth for wireless capabilities and is made to perform well in locations with bad visibility or interference. In addition, Carlson’s Listen-Listen service allows base/rover operations via the cellular modem for better correction transmission ranges compared to traditional terrestrial UHF radios.
