Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) Receivers

Global Navigation Satellite System receivers make use of satellite constellations to deliver high precision global positioning and time synchronisation.

The GEF has receivers available for loan that make use of the US NAVSTAR (GPS) and Russian GLONASS GNSSs. Our latest receivers (Leica GS10) will also be able to receive the forthcoming Chinese COMPASS and European Galileo signals once operational.

Positioning capabilites

All of our receivers are geodetic quality, capable of measuring to sub-centimetre precision when used in differential mode. We have accessories such as radios to enable full Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) positioning to a within few centimetres over ranges of kilometers.

Equipment available for loan

We have Leica System 1200 and Leica VIVA GS10 receivers available for loan.

Typical Applications

Our receivers have been used in a wide variety of applications, are highly configurable and often support our other equipment types e.g. GPR or TLS. Recent uses have included:-
