Pathway Services Inc. Selects iXBlue’s New ATLANS-C for its Superior Performance and Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Scott Mathison, vice president operations, Pathway Services, says, “We operate a fleet of 22 PathRunner DCV’s and have 60 worldwide. We have collected over two million miles of center-line data in the USA and are always looking for better solutions, which is why we were keen to test iXBlue’s ATLANS-C. Integration, calibration and initial testing were completed in less than half a day – we didn’t even need to contact iXBlue. We’ve tested multiple data types with the ATLANS-C, including real-time kinematic and virtual reference station differential global positioning system, road geometrics, ground penetrating radar, digital imaging, roadway asset extraction and LIDAR data. We currently use a position and orientation system that has a larger form factor and far greater hardware requirements than iXBlue’s system. The evaluation showed the ATLANS-C not only delivers higher performance but also is a more cost-effective solution. We purchased a number of systems right away after our tests.”

ATLANS-C brings to customers the versatility of having one system for both land and air applications and is a true north seeking gyro in ‘all-in-one’ solution. The equipment supplies a full heading accuracy in a GPS denied environments (cities, harbors, rural, and urban canyons). ATLANS-C embeds iXBlue’s latest solid-state fiber-optic inertial navigation system for high performance and ‘no maintenance concept’. Phillip Wilson iXBlue vice president of North America sales and marketing says, “ATLANS-C standard 5 years warranty is a testimony to its maintenance-free and reliability qualities. The 5 year warranty peace-of-mind along with other ATLANS-C’s time and money saving benefits such as ease-of-use and single-box solution translate to customer’s lower total cost of ownership. These are important attributes for PathRunner DCV systems, which spend long periods of collecting data from remote roads of varying quality.”
