A new player has entered the Australian GNSS and RTK market, with Tersus introducing their product line at the IGNSS 2018 symposium at the University of New South Wales.
Positioning themselves as a provider that can deliver centimetre-level precision at a price point that most competitors cannot, the Tersus line offers a refreshing balance of features and accessibility.
A case in point is their entry-level GNSS receiver, adorably called ‘David’. This pint-sized, IP67-compliant unit seems can apparently achieve centimetre-level accuracy in a miniscule form factor, supports GPS L1/L2, GLONASS G1/G2 and Beidou B1/2, and is upgradeable with a range of accessories.
Designed to be used with any tablet or smartphone as its user interface, Tersus offers a free app for controlling the little unit, along with an external Bluetooth module. While they’re not yet advertising a price for David, it appears it will list at well under competing units that offer the same degree of specification and flexibility.
Further up the line, their NeoRTK and MatrixRTK systems and rover kits offer suites of high-spec features at price points that will raise eyebrows.
