Renowned accuracy, faster than ever without base stations
Experience faster convergence time in global RTX regions now with IN-Fusion+ PP-RTX 2
Available with POSPac 9, this second generation of IN-Fusion+ PP-RTX has new signal compatibility with Beidou-III satellites to achieve less than 3-minute convergence times in Global regions.
Note: This service is initially limited to uncrewed (UAV) airborne applications
Applanix POSPac PP-RTX is a cloud-based global GNSS correction service that utilizes Trimble’s RTX technology to provide cm-level post-processed positioning accuracy without base stations. The Trimble RTX technology utilizes data from a dedicated global network of tracking stations to compute corrections to satellite orbit and clock information as well as atmospheric delay models. Applanix POSPac uses this data to post-process the GNSS-inertial trajectory and is an addition to the known SingleBase, SmartBase, and MultiSingleBase augmentation processing methods.
|Map inaccessible regions that have no existing CORS without the cost of deploying local base stations|
|Attain more uptime and reliability with Trimble’s professionally managed, highly maintained private network|
|Achieve centimeter-level accuracy within minutes after mission completion|
|Maximize productivity – reduce acquisition costs and rework costs|
|Streamlined map production workflow – faster production and better accuracy|
Due to the mission size, crewed airborne projects can exceed the maximum of 20 km distance from a single base station required for a precise GNSS-Inertial solution. PP-RTX has no such limitation and is hence ideal for crewed aerial surveys. Since PP-RTX is a global service, it eliminates the cost and headache of setting up or procuring local base stations in different countries or remote locations
Short flights (10 – 30 minutes) can be processed using IN-Fusion PP-RTX while in Fast Region coverage, or with IN-Fusion+ PP-RTX 2 processing in the Fast or Global Regions as long as the proper signal tracking has been enabled. Longer flights (> 30 minute) can be processed in either region, and with either PP-RTX or PP-RTX 2 to obtain the same level of accuracy. This is particularly useful for BVLOS applications or longer linear flights such as those associated with corridor mapping. PP-RTX is also ideal for UAV mapping applications in remote regions such as mountainous and forested areas where existing base stations are not present, and setting up a base station can be difficult.
Applanix PP-RTX currently requires clean GNSS observables with minimal cycle slips and interruptions. Since land applications are typically exposed to frequent GNSS disruptions (buildings, vegetation, tunnels) in urban environments, the PP-RTX service will not achieve full accuracy. For missions in rural areas with no or only a few GNSS occlusions, it may produce adequate results. Contact Trimble Applanix for more details
The Applanix POSPac PP-RTX service can be used for all POS MV systems and applications. For offshore projects and remote coastal line surveys, it is the only cost-effective method for achieving centimeter level position accuracy. Surveys in ports or missions close to the mainland, POSPac PP-RTX eliminates the cost needed to procure or set up local base stations.
