Altus Introduces New GNSS Survey Receiver with 10-cm Terrastar-D

“The APS-T with embedded TERRASTAR-D L-band capability will provide a low-cost alternative for GNSS surveying in agriculture, forestry, oil/gas, mining and construction sites in remote regions and harsh environments,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president of Altus Positioning Systems. “It is also fully upgradeable to a GNSS RTK rover should the need for higher accuracy be required.”

The APS-T is ready to use direct from the shipping case. The unit can be configured from the data collector through a Bluetooth or serial cable connection. With Altus’ open-architecture philosophy, the user has the choice of data collector software from leading providers, including MicroSurvey FIELDGenius and Carlson SurvCE.

TERRASTAR-D is a subscription-based satellite PPP augmentation service introduced in 2012 by TERRASTAR for land-based surveying applications. TERRASTAR-D provides position accuracy at better than 10-cm (95 percent), with robust performance even in areas of high ionospheric interference. The TERRASTAR-D network broadcasts on seven independent satellites with overlapping coverage, so that a minimum of two geostationary satellites are visible at most locations in the world.

The APS-T is the latest evolution in Altus’ product line of surveying instruments based on the proven APS-3 platform that utilizes Septentrio’s 136-channel GNSS receiver technology. Standard APS-T features include Bluetooth, integrated UHF radio, integrated GSM modem, hot-swappable Lithium-Ion batteries and a removable 2GB SD card.
