Precise Mobile Satellite Positioning
RTK NETWEST OFFER THE VERY LATEST IN REAL-TIME SATELLITE POSITIONING SOLUTIONS
PRECISION FARMING & MACHINE CONTROL
Guidance and tracking systems are able to be installed into farming equipment that will automatically steer vehicles according to optimised routes, minimising overlaps. Savings in time and cost are gained through minimising drive and machine operating times.
Equipment can confidently be operated at any time of the day or night, allowing the farmer to make the right decisions for the particular crop or conditions.
Any conventional RTK surveying application can be substituted with a VRS network solution.
Hydrographic survey operations can benefit from the range of the Mobile network compared to a conventional radio base station installed on land.
RTK Drones capable of accepting an NTRIP correction can be positioned utilising RTK Netwest signals.
UTILITY MAPPING & GIS
The process of accurately locating above and below ground assets over broad areas can be achieved easily and efficiently.
The network signal has also been used for overland pipe laying machinery guidance.
All aspects of GIS data capture can be dramatically enhanced with the addition of a correction service.
Activities such as plantation mapping, asset location, service locations, bore hole mapping and environmental monitoring wells.
Beginning in 2006 with just five base stations mostly surrounding the outer metropolitan area, RTKnetwest today boasts a growing network that expands beyond the Perth Metropolitan area to include the state’s south west and central wheat-belt. This expansion was undertaken to meet the growing market demands of the agriculture, mining and construction industries.
The network now covers the coastal strip from Lancelin to Karridale, and east to Pingelly. The 23 base stations operated by RTKnetwest now cover an area of 80,000km2 that includes over 85% of the state’s population. We will support further expansion of the network to the north and east based on user requirements.
