NORCROSS, Ga., 6 March 2009. Leica Geosystems Inc. in Norcross, Ga., is offering GNSS Spider V3.2 guidance software that provides compatibility with GPS L2C and GLONASS GPS navigation signals provided by third party receivers and GPS antenna.
By complying with RTCM standards, Leica GNSS Spider enables any manufacturer's rover systems to seamlessly use networked and single-base GPS & GLONASS correction data.
"Leica GNSS Spider software follows the RTCM industry standards to ensure all inter-manufacturer bias are removed and all rovers, regardless of manufacturer, are maximizing their performance." says Wendy Watson, product manager for engineering solutions at Leica Geosystems Inc.
With GPS L2C as well as GLONASS data processing any potentially possible inter-manufacturer receiver biases are correctly considered by the new processing algorithms.
This feature uses a standard RTCM message to transport Unicode text messages from Leica GNSS Spider to any rover systems user, enabling the network operator to inform clients about e.g. the status of the network, scheduled updates, and new services.
Further, Leica GNSS Spider uses this communication channel to automatically provide feedback to a rover about events affecting its connection.
Leica GNSS Spider also allows import of RINEX files into the application so that new references stations can be added. Easy drag and drop of one or more RINEX allows the operator to set up and configure network stations.
