Atmos UAV Partners with Topcon Positioning Group to Provide Users with High-End RTK Reference Network Solutions

Towards a base station free era

Topcon AtmosDelft, Tuesday, November 24, 2020 – Atmos UAV, the fast-growing Dutch drone manufacturer that develops high-end VTOL fixed-wing drones for surveying and mapping applications, has now formed a new partnership with Topcon towards a base station free era. An industry leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of precision measurement and workflow solutions, Topcon has developed and optimized over the last years its own GNNS RTK Reference Network, TopNETlive, which will now be available with every Marlyn unit.

TopNETlive is an innovative and flexible subscription-based solution that offers real-time GNSS corrections. Designed to meet the unique needs of its users, the platform provides a wide range of subscription services such as Network RTK, RTK, DGNSS, and Agriculture-specific GNSS. Managed and operated by Topcon geodesy teams, and with multiple stations for redundancy at hand, TopNETlive brings survey-grade results without the need of a base station.

When it comes to land surveying and construction applications, TopNETlive delivers high-accuracy positioning to professional surveyors through a 24/7 consistent and reliable access. Since base stations are no longer necessary, greater efficiency is gained in the field that results in higher production and decreased costs.

Similarly, in GIS applications the platform is ideal for utility mapping, asset management, and in general projects that demand precise GIS data collection. Fully interoperable with third party owners, GIS professionals can rely on both real time differential corrections, as well as having access to raw data for post processing.

“Keeping the needs of our users in mind, we try to take steps that will make their work easier and more efficient in the field” said René Worms, Commercial Director at ATMOS. “We believe this partnership will add great value to our platform and streamline operations for our customers” he concluded.
