Summit Camp GPS Survey System - Available Equipment

Equipment Available

A geodetic system consisting of dual-frequency base station and roving receivers, capable of centimeter-level accuracy, is available at Summit Camp. A computer is also available for data downloading and processing at the Green House facility.

Centimeter-level accuracy can be realized over 100 kilometers away from the station by collecting and post-processing data. Also, real-time kinematic (RTK) broadcasts provide real-time capability within a five kilometer radius of Summit Camp. The RTK signal is broadcast at 460 MHz, with CMR+ format at 9600 baud.

The following GPS equipment is available for use at Summit Camp:
Trimble NetR8 Base Station
Geodetic GPS base station for data collection and RTK broadcasting. An equipment inventory is maintained on this page.
Trimble R7 Rover Receiver
Geodetic GPS receiver that provides centimeter accuracy in real-time (RTK) or through data collection and post-processing. An equipment inventory is maintained on this page.
Data Processing Computer
A computer is available with Trimble Business Center data processing software and other GPS utilities.
