Hemisphere GPS announces today the new S320™ GNSS survey receiver, XF1 data collector and survey software. S320 combines the advanced GNSS receiver performance of Hemisphere GPS' Eclipse™ II technology, precise geodetic antenna, wireless communication and batteries all in a portable, rugged unit with matching data collector. Designed to be compatible with a variety of existing surveying equipment, S320 is the ideal multi-GNSS positioning system for applications in GIS, construction, mapping, land and marine surveying. S320 is available as a basic low cost SBAS L1 GPS receiver, with the option to enable full GNSS support and L-Band corrections. With transmit and receive capabilities, the S320's UHF 400 MHz or Spread Spectrum 900 MHz internal radio eliminates the need for cables on both base and rover installations. An internal GSM/GPRS modem makes S320 an ideal rover for network RTK, eliminating the hassle of external modems and cables. The XF1 data collector connects via Bluetooth to the S320 and through the Carlson SurvCE software provides a familiar and proven interface to the surveyor. Other brands of software will also be supported.

Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today its 80 megapixel Trimble Aerial Camera (TAC 80MP), extending the range of applications for today's medium-format aerial cameras. The announcement was made at Photogrammetric Week. With advanced features such as Trimble's forward motion compensation (FMC) technology, the TAC 80MP allows aerial service providers to fly faster or increase ground sampling distance. This enables fixed wing aircraft to deliver results previously only achievable with helicopter campaigns. With a weight of less than 3,000 grams (6.6 lbs.), the TAC 80MP is also an ideal camera for a variety of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), further extending its application range.
