Trimble announced today that its Trimble RTX GNSS corrections technology can now achieve horizontal accuracies of better than two centimeters. Start-up times, commonly referred to as convergence, have also improved. Users can now achieve full accuracy in less than 15 minutes, and as fast as one minute in select areas where RTX Fast network infrastructure is available.
This performance is achievable using Trimble's correction service, CenterPoint RTX, delivering RTK-level accuracy outside traditional Virtual Reference Station (VRS) networks, considered the gold standard for high-accuracy corrections. Trimble RTX provides performance from a satellite-delivered correction source. In addition, corrections are available via an Internet or cellular connection.
With satellite-delivered Trimble RTX corrections, users can perform a variety of positioning fieldwork in remote locations, without relying on traditional ground-based VRS networks or a local RTK base station to receive high-accuracy positioning data. By powering on an RTX-capable receiver or display, customers can start working quickly with a minimal convergence period.
Trimble RTX provides users the flexibility to choose the level of accuracy to suit their application needs from meter to centimeter level. It is an ideal correction solution for a variety of applications including agriculture, survey, mapping, construction, automotive and any location-based service. Trimble RTX also powers Trimble xFill technology, a feature that enables RTK and VRS users to continue working if their primary correction stream is not available. xFill, delivered via satellite, "fills in" for RTK corrections in the event of temporary radio or Internet connection outages. As a result, users can experience fewer interruptions and less downtime.
