Leica Viva GNSS Unlimited Series Offers a Safe and Future-proof Investment

The Leica Viva GNSS range now fully supports the Chinese BeiDou navigation system. It can even provide BeiDou-only and Glonass-only high-precision positioning. The unlimited series additionally includes a future upgrade to a GNSS board with more than 500 channels and will serve users’ needs beyond 2020. Outages of real time kinematic (RTK) communication links are bridged for up to 10 minutes with SmartLink to increase centimetre position availability in areas where RTK communications links are unstable. The Viva GNSS is manufactured to the highest standards to provide users with durable and flexible equipment they can rely on.

A safe and future-proof investment with up to 500 channels

The Leica Viva GNSS Unlimited Series can easily be upgraded to the full range of GNSS signals. The sensors’ future-proof design is equipped for GNSS modernization, providing users with confidence in their investment. The Leica Viva GNSS Unlimited series embraces the future-proof concept by including an upgrade to a GNSS board with more than 500 channels. To fully guarantee future proof GNSS, board exchanges are inevitable because any likely modifications in GNSS signals require a new GNSS ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit).

Leica Geosystems’ proven Leica SmartTrack technology guarantees accurate signal tracking, while the unique SmartCheck technology evaluates and verifies RTK measurements to ensure the most reliable results. Both SmartTrack and SmartCheck technologies have been extended to support the BeiDou GNSS. BeiDou reached full operational regional capability in 2012 and currently has a total of 14 satellites. Leica Viva GNSS also supports features like BeiDou-only and GLONASS- only positioning to accommodate governmental regulations.

In addition, Leica Geosystems now offers SmartLink, a correction service delivered via satellite for uninterrupted centimetre positioning in areas where RTK communication links are unstable.

Built for the toughest environments

All Leica Viva GNSS products exceed the toughest environmental specifications, going beyond industrial standards such as IP68. This ensures flawless performance even in the most challenging environments. Applications for the range include construction and field surveying, mining, seismic work in dense forest, desert or mountains, as well as demanding work in extreme heat at 65°C or at extreme latitudes at -30°C. Premium precision and attention to detail ensure that the Leica Viva GNSS products can be trusted throughout the complete product lifetime.
