Trimble has launched the all new R12 GNSS receiver, featuring what it calls ground-breaking Trimble ProPoint GNSS technology that it says allows land surveyors to quickly measure more points in more places than ever before.

The company claims that the new technology will help reduce both the time in the field and the need for conventional techniques such as using a total station.

According to the company, the new Trimble ProPoint GNSS technology allows for flexible signal management, which helps mitigate the effects of signal degradation and provides a GNSS constellation-agnostic operation. In head-to-head testing with the Trimble R10-2 in challenging GNSS environments such as near and among trees, and built environments, the Trimble R12 receiver performed more than 30 percent better across a variety of factors, including time to achieve survey precision levels, position accuracy and measurement reliability.

“As a leader in the field of GNSS technology and innovation, Trimble dedicated many years of intensive research into developing the Trimble R12,” said Ronald Bisio, senior vice president of Trimble Geospatial. “This has culminated in a first-class solution, which enables our users to extend the reach of their systems to places where other RTK GNSS systems experience degraded performance.”

In Australia, the new R12 GNSS receivers are available through Ultimate Positioning Group and several other local distributors.
