Trimble Adds High-Accuracy RTX Technology to its Infrastructure Solutions

The announcement was made today at the ION GNSS 2012 Conference and Exhibition.

“While standard autonomous GNSS position solutions provide accuracies in the 1 meter range, Trimble RTX can achieve accuracies at the centimeter level – anywhere on or near the earth’s surface,” said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble’s Positioning Services Division. “Combining global coverage, fast initialization times, and high-accuracy correction data, RTX technology provides GNSS users unprecedented, operating freedom. We are committed to offering field-proven correction technologies that can satisfy a variety of users needs across applications and markets, from agriculture to infrastructure.”

RTX Technology in Infrastructure Hardware 

The Trimble NetR9 reference receiver provides advanced global correction data with the addition of Trimble RTX technology. Receiving corrections via either L-Band satellite or IP (cellular) communications, high-accuracy absolute positioning can now be achieved worldwide for coordinate and tectonic monitoring. The NetR9 with RTX is ideal for establishing or monitoring CORS station coordinates and static operations for survey campaigns.

“The extensive coverage and delivery options provide opportunities in environments where corrections historically have not been available,” said Ulrich Vollath, general manager of Trimble’s Infrastructure Division. “Used standalone or as part of a larger network of receivers, onboard RTX technology enables faster setup/deployment, increased efficiency in daily routines, and the confidence of knowing that corrections are available wherever the receiver may need to be deployed.”

RTX Technology in Infrastructure Software

Trimble Pivot™ software is an advanced platform for Infrastructure apps that supports a range of capabilities to serve various markets. Within the Infrastructure portfolio, two key applications—Trimble Pivot RTX Real-Time App (RTX) and Trimble Pivot RTX Postprocessed (RTX-PP) App—offer the advantages of absolute positioning techniques using Trimble RTX technology to provide users with centimeter-level real-time position accuracy.

The new Infrastructure apps are ideal for establishing or monitoring station coordinates in Real Time Networks (RTN), measuring station movement for earthquake, volcano, landslide, dam or other monitoring applications, and also providing kinematic and/or static/filtered positions.

Trimble Pivot RTX App is designed to perform absolute position monitoring in real-time for a network of receivers. This is particularly helpful when operating a network for CORS receivers which may be used in an RTN or for monitoring applications. The Trimble Pivot RTX App uses a software based RTX engine, so that the receivers which are to be monitored do not require RTX capability onboard. Using GNSS data streaming from a receiver, the Pivot RTX App applies RTX corrections in real-time, monitoring the reference station position.

Trimble Pivot RTX-PP App is designed to perform position monitoring in postprocessing mode. The Pivot RTX-PP App provides highly accurate position results based on the RTX postprocessing technique. This enables precise determination of initial coordinates for CORS or measurement of displacements after station movement. The Pivot RTX-PP App supports different processing modes: static or kinematic. The static mode enables users to receive highly accurate absolute positions, while the kinematic mode allows users to process data to obtain position measurements during periods of station movement.

The Trimble NetR9 reference receiver with RTX technology and the Trimble Pivot RTX and Trimble Pivot RTX-PP Apps are available now. For more information,, call 1-800-767-4822 (U.S.), +1-303-323-4111 (outside of the U.S.) or email:

About Trimble

Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Solutions are focused on applications requiring position or location—including surveying, construction, agriculture, fleet and asset management, public safety and mapping. In addition to utilizing positioning technologies, such as GPS, lasers and optics, Trimble solutions may include software content specific to the needs of the user. Wireless technologies are utilized to deliver the solution to the user and to ensure a tight coupling of the field and the back office. Founded in 1978, Trimble is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif.
