Altus Positioning Systems Receives Large Order for GNSS Survey Receivers in Norway

 
“The Land Consolidation Court’s rigorous tests for the selection process were completed in demanding environments, including under heavy tree canopies,” said Arnt Tore Sund, managing director of NavSys. “The price-performance relation and the quality of the Altus APS-3G receivers, together with the comprehensive customer support, detailed product knowledge and deep technical understanding of the NavSys team, strongly contributed to this successful outcome.”
 
The Land Consolidation Court’s 34 district offices will use the Altus APS-3G systems for geodetic, cadastre and land consolidation applications and for supporting the resolution of legal disputes.
 
The Altus 136-channel APS-3G is a compact, lightweight, portable GNSS RTK receiver. It is based on the high-precision Septentrio multi-frequency, multi-constellation AsteRx3 engine. The unit is completely configurable from the data collector via Bluetooth for either base or rover operation with the internal UHF radio or for network rover operation with the internal quad-band GSM/GPRS modem. Its removable 2-GB SD card enables plug-and-play of raw data transfer for post processing.
 
The APS-3GX model, which also is being delivered, optionally provides a port to a remote lightweight antenna that can be mounted on a five-meter pole to improve reception of the GNSS signals by raising the phase center when under dense vegetation.
 
Neil Vancans, president and CEO of Altus Positioning Systems, commented, “This substantial order, obtained through the efforts of our valued sales partner in Norway, is an important validation of our APS-3 technology, which offers significant competitive benefits and advantages over other higher-priced GNSS survey receivers on the market today.”
 
The Land Consolidation Court of Norway is a special court established under the Land Consolidation Act to adjudicate boundary disputes among property owners and freeholders in land consolidation cases. Mapping and other technical work is done by staff from the court so that decisions made are documented for the future. The technical staff has competency to do all the technical work in each case handled by the court.
