Leica Geosystems Introduces the Leica GMX902 GG

Dedicated, High Precision, Dual-frequency GPS + GLONASS Receiver for Specialty Monitoring Applications

{mosaddphp:mega-house.php}(Norcross, 09 August 2007) With the Leica GMX902 GG, Leica Geosystems continues its commitment to developing accurate and reliable GNSS monitoring solutions. The Leica GMX902 GG is a high-performance GPS + GLONASS receiver, specially developed to monitor sensitive structures such as bridges, mines or high rise buildings and crucial topographies such as land slides or volcanoes. It provides precise dual frequency code and phase data up to 20 Hz, enabling precise data capture as the basis for highly accurate position calculation and motion analysis.

Built for a single purpose
As with the other receivers in the GMX900 family, the GMX902 GG has been designed and built purely for monitoring applications. The key characteristics of the GMX900 family are low power consumption, high quality measurement, simplicity, and durability. The Leica GMX902 GG is an ideal receiver for deformation monitoring with superior tracking of satellites from the both GPS and GLONASS constellations. The GMX902 GG is also a perfect receiver for atmospheric studies and ionospheric scintillation research with 20Hz measurement of high precision dual-frequency code, phase and signal-to-noise ratio.

"Our development teams have taken our suggestions from years of monitoring applications all over the world and implemented those requests into the GMX902. This sensor has the same accuracy as the rest of the family of products, costs less, and uses half the power- which is exactly what the market needed." Gerard Manley, vice president Engineered Solutions, Leica Geosystems Inc., continues, "This allows us to deploy units in some of the world’s most demanding locations and confidently operate on battery and solar operation for many years.  The GMX902 will change the way GPS monitoring is used by the engineering community."

Integrated Solutions
The Leica GMX902 GG integrates seamlessly with a suite of Leica Geosystems software for advanced data analysis and processing, data archiving, high speed and high accuracy displacement calculation, limit checks and messaging in combination with other sensor families.
