A customer required a system that they could use to position three objects and know the relative distances, heading and pitch between all three.. They also had the requirement that they could change the display to match either TRUE or any GRID projection from a worldwide selection. Finally, was a requirement to ensure that the system was weather-proof and had a method of remotely viewing the data in real time.
The CPUPak was used as a foundation for the solution. Three OEM4 receivers were combined inside the CPUPak housing and internally connected to pass corrections from the master to the rovers. Waypoints RTKNav solution was used to generate the attitude data between the three antenna. The system was built into a Pelicase and all the vital connections were wired to the outside of the case for functionality
without requiring to open the lid.
The data was displayed by either connecting a monitor to the CPUPak or remotely using a PDA. We develop specific software for viewing and controlling the system. The NAVPak-ADS software includes a worldwide geodetic suite (external BlueMarble Dll) to provide the functionality to transform between coordinate systems in real-time. Changing the geodetic suite could be done from the PDA to allow for remote use.
This system has now been replaced by the MICROpod-ATT system
