Palmer Station GPS Survey System - Rover Equipment

Rover Equipment

The roving system is the GPS equipment that users take in the field. The heart of the roving system is a Trimble R7 GPS receiver, with an external Pacific Crest radio for RTK corrections and 512Mb of flashcard memory for static survey data collection. For kinematic work, the R7 receiver is controlled with the Trimble TSC2 data collector. Two roving antennas are available, a Trimble Zephyr Geodetic for static work and a Trimble Compact L1/L2 for kinematic work. A portable RTK radio repeater is provided for areas that are within range for RTK solutions but beyond line of sight from Palmer Station. A bipod, kinematic survey backpack, and level mount are also available.
