Press release date: September 28, 2011

TORRANCE, Calif. - Altus Positioning Systems has sold an additional 17 APS-3 GNSS survey receivers to the regional government authority of Baden-Württemberg in Germany. This is a subsequent order to their original purchase of 100 units earlier this year.

Josef Attenberger GmbH, Altus' sales representative in Germany, will supply the units to the State Office for Spatial Information and Land Development Baden-Württemberg (LGL).

LGL originally purchased 100 Altus APS-3 systems to use as control for monitoring and verifying agricultural production. Based on the excellent success and the value for money, LGL decided to purchase an additional 17 units.

"This follow-on order is a strong validation of the APS-3 technology," said Neil Vancans, president and CEO of Altus Positioning Systems. "The Altus APS-3 units offer significant competitive benefits and advantages over other higher-priced GNSS survey receivers on the market today. For instance, we designed the technology so that each unit can be used as a rover or base station, eliminating the need to purchase two separate dedicated units."

The APS-3 receivers have been approved for local Integrated Administration and Control System (InVeKoS) control by the German certification authority, TÜV-SÜD, to meet European Union (EU) regulations.

The Altus 136-channel APS-3 is a compact, lightweight, portable GNSS RTK receiver. It is based on the high-precision Septentrio multi-frequency AsteRx2e engine. The unit is completely configurable from the data collector via Bluetooth for either base or rover operation with the internal UHF radio or for network rover operation with the internal quad-band GSM/GPRS modem. Its removable 2-GB SD card enables plug-and-play of raw data transfer for post processing.
