International Dredging Review
MENUMENU

Trimble introduced the SPS356 DGNSS Beacon Receiver which allows contractors to achieve sub-meter accuracy using DGNSS or MSK Beacon station corrections for robust multi-constellation positioning. Trimble said the receiver is well suited for dredging vessel positioning and tracking and bathymetric surveying.

The Trimble SPS356 uses sub-meter GNSS capabilities for reliable precise positioning across the globe and includes support for Bei-Dou (China) and GLONASS (Russia) constellations. Corrections can be received from signals broadcast by MSK Beacon stations from Satellite-based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) or via an external radio or Internet connection from a local reference station.

The SPS356 includes Wi-Fi Ethernet and Bluetooth capabilities expanding system integration and connectivity options. Using Wi-Fi the SPS356 can be accessed using any device with a web browser including smartphones or tablets for configuration and monitoring.
