Trimble Enhances its Flagship GNSS Surveying Solution with Tilt-Compensation Technology
Trimble R10 GNSS System Also Adds CenterPoint RTX Correction Service
Support and Field and Office Software Updates
ESSEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today several enhancements to the Trimble® R10 GNSS Surveying System designed to drive field productivity to a new high. With sophisticated tilt-compensation technology, CenterPoint™ RTX™ correction service support and updated field and office software, the R10 platform demonstrates Trimble's commitment to driving improved surveying productivity.
The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2013, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.
"Innovations in techniques such as our tilt compensation technology can have a pervasive impact on the everyday surveying experience," said Elmar Lenz, business area director of GNSS Solutions for Trimble's Geospatial Division. "With our innovative approach to total surveying workflow, Trimble is redefining the way surveying work is done."
Trimble R10 GNSS Surveying System with Tilt-Compensation
The Trimble R10 is now augmented to further speed GNSS field work. With its new internal tilt-compensation, Trimble SurePoint™ technology takes field efficiency to the next level. The system will automatically adjust for pole-tilt up to 15 degrees from plumb, saving time and reducing fatigue. With tilt compensation, surveyors can now utilize GNSS in more situations and with 100 percent measurement traceability.
CenterPoint RTX Correction Service Support
In addition, Trimble introduced its high-accuracy correction service, CenterPoint RTX into the Geospatial market with support in the Trimble R10. Powered by Trimble RTX technology, CenterPoint RTX is a subscription service that delivers real-time 4 centimeter (1.5 inch) or better corrections via satellite directly to the receiver without requiring the use of a base station, VRS network, or investment in additional hardware.

Field and Office Software
Both Trimble Access field software and Trimble Business Center office software have been updated to streamline data flow and automate data processing. Faster in the field and more flexible in the office, Trimble's premium GNSS surveying system enhances the entire surveying workflow.
The updates to Trimble R10 GNSS System, CenterPoint RTX service support, Trimble Access version 2013.40 and Trimble Business Center version 3.10 are expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2013 through Trimble's Geospatial Division distribution network. For current R10 users, the tilt-compensation feature and CenterPoint RTX support will be available through a free firmware update.
