GPS (TopNet RTK Tower Systems)
TopNET RTK builds on our powerful TopNET CORS package, providing greater real-time functionality and expanded communications capabilities while retaining all of the easy-to-use features of TopNET CORS. TopNET RTK uses the familiar TopNET-S server package for communications with reference stations as well as the TopNET-R set of clients for complete control and monitoring of the GPS+ network. And with the addition of our new TopNET-N client module, TopNET RTK delivers network corrections from the nearest reference station to any number of users through a central communications hub!
Benefits Include:

  • 24+ miles working radius from a reference station.
  • Dual constellation processing provides greater satellite availability with less user and network downtime.
  • Mobile user data acquisition through a centralized communications server simplifies communication in the field.
  • TopNET RTK delivers network corrections from the nearest reference station, insuring the most accurate network solution for any number of rovers.
  • Multiple communications techniques between mobile user and the communication server can be simultaneously supported, e.g. GSM and CDMA cell phones, CDMA modems, UHF, internet communication devices, etc., provides maximum flexibility
  • TopNET RTK is scalable to support any number of network base stations, so it grows with your business.

We have two Topcon HiPer XT Wireless, Integrated GPS+ (GPS + GLONASS) System with Internal Cellular Modem and Pacific Crest Compatible TX/RX UHF Base Radio. At the heart of this new system is Topcon's new XT (eXtended Technology) system design. This new receiver design provides a user with two forms of RTK communication all inside one compact, lightweight housing. The HiPer XT incorporates both a transmit and receive 2-watt UHF radio and a cellular modem. The new Topcon HiPer XT system gives you two systems in one. Use two HiPer XT receivers as a base and rover system for areas outside reliable digital cellular coverage. When operating in an area of reliable cellular coverage or within an RTK network system, use both HiPer XT receivers as rover units to double your productivity and efficiency!

Instruments (Total Stations)
We have five Topcon CTS-3000 Contractors' Reflectorless Total Station. The CTS-3000 series features onboard software that simplifies staking. An extended keyboard enables easy operation and data input. The system software can also be operated with a hand-held data collector, like Topcon's FC-100. Reflectorless measurement capabilities up to 820 ft (250m) and a prism type range of 9842 ft. (3,000m) to a single standard size prism provide the range needed to cover most job sites.
