Single Device combines 4 forms of position measurement.

Press Release Summary:

Integrating 4 sensing solutions in one package, Azimuth Pointing System (APS) suits any application requiring precise location, position, or orientation measurement. It can be used to measure true north azimuth with GPS-based compass, elevation angle with integrated tilt sensor, location with on-board GPS, and distance with optional TruPulse laser rangefinder. Product is not affected by surrounding metal structures and does not require calibration/declination.

Original Press Release:

Measure True North Azimuth, Elevation, Location and Distance - All in One Device

Company Information:

Multiwave Sensors Inc. provides research, prototyping, product development, design, consulting and sales of sensor based products. The companies core talents are the integration of different sensor products into one measurement system. Multiwave is very closely associated and is a business partner with Laser Technology Inc (LTI). of Centennial Colorado. LTI is the leader in "Pulsed Time of Flight Laser Rangefinders" and incorporates their patented ASIC technology into a multitude of products. Multiwave and LTI work together to develop new measurement solutions for a broad range of markets and applications. The principals of Multiwave have over 30 years experience working with lasers and sensor systems.

Product Information:

No calibration or declination required.

Product Info:

Multiwave Sensors Inc. announces today the release of the Azimuth Pointing System (APS). With the integration of four sensing solutions into one package, the APS becomes a powerful measurement tool. Measure true north azimuth with the GPS based compass, elevation angle with the integrated tilt sensor, location with the on board GPS, and distance with the optional TruPulse laser rangefinder.

The APS can be used to align communication antennas (azimuth, elevation), determine drill rig orientation (azimuth, dip), for Mobile/Marine Mapping (latitude, longitude) because it is not affected by the surrounding metal structures like a magnetic compass is. Measure remote geographical positions (latitude, longitude, elevation/height) from one location for asset mapping, 3D positions (X,Y,Z) for a stockpile volume calculation, Missing Line between two remote points (azimuth, distance, vertical angle) or any application that requires a precise location, position or orientation measurement.
