TAG Military GNSS Survey System - PPS GPS-S

Fully Militarized Survey System Using a Military GPS Receiver Supplemented by Multi-GNSS Systems with Assured PNT for ALL Precise Modes of Operation

TAG’s Precise Positioning Service (PPS) Global Positioning System-Survey (GPS-S) solution has been specifically designed to address the stringent requirements of military survey missions including geodetic, construction, airfield, and field artillery survey. PPS GPS-S provides precise GPS positioning accuracy with a military-grade GPS receiver to provide jamming, and Emerging Threat (ET) protection. The GPS receiver is supplemented with data from foreign Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellations to increase accuracy, integrity, and service availability. PPS GPS-S gives the military surveyor the tools they need to complete their missions with minimum time-on-station even in the face of GPS signal Emerging Threat (ET), attempted jamming, or Electronic Warfare (EW).

TAG Precise Positioning Service (PPS) Global Positioning System-Survey (GPS-S)

Built Around a Fully Functional Windows Tablet that Meets the Toughest Military Environments

The high-precision, military GPS receiver provides GPS signal assurance, security with enhanced noise, and signal rejection capabilities. The advanced integrated radio provides RTK corrections for centimeter level real-time positioning accuracy, and robotic control of compatible Total Stations. In stationary mode, and utilizing post-processing software, PPS GPS-S delivers millimeter-level accuracy. PPS GPS-S features Carlson® SurvPC Mil, a powerful commercial survey software for RTK survey systems, and Total Stations. SurvPC Mil is built around Carlson’s world renowned SurvCE platform, and has been customized to meet the needs of the military surveyor.
