NavCom Now Offers Carlson Software as an Option for Its LAND-PAK Survey System

"It's everything a new company or survey department needs."

TORRANCE, Calif.--NavCom Technology, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Deere & Company (NYSE:DE), announced the addition of Carlson's SurvCE data collection software and Carlson Survey 2013 as a software option to its more complete LAND-PAK™ Survey System.


"LAND-PAK is a turn-key StarFire/RTK survey solution that now offers the choice of Carlson Software for field and office work," said Steve Ault, NavCom's Product Manager. "This allows our customers the choice to customize their LAND-PAK - to select which software tool works best for them - to get the job done right."

"The NavCom LAND-PAK bundle is the first time Carlson has worked with a major manufacturer to bundle not just SurvCE but also Carlson Survey, our office survey solution that is a virtual standard in the U.S. survey industry," said Bruce Carlson, president of Carlson Software. "This powerful combination means that purchasers of NavCom GNSS products can conduct their field work efficiently and then take the data seamlessly into Carlson Survey to quickly complete their as-built, topo map, subdivision or survey plat deliverables. NavCom's LAND-PAK is a great concept, long overdue," he added. "It's everything a new company or survey department needs."

The LAND-PAK system includes full GNSS receiver support, field, office & GNSS post processing software, all hardware & accessories, plus an online video training library and comes with an industry leading three year manufacturer's warranty. LAND-PAK also includes a lifetime license for our StarFire global satellite-based augmentation system providing 5 centimeter horizontal accuracy worldwide and the freedom and flexibility that a DGPS solution offers in addition to its proprietary Ultra RTK and RTK-Extend features that allow for RTK level accuracy over extended baselines and during communication outages.

LAND-PAK is available through NavCom's dealer network. For additional product information, visit www.LAND-PAK.com or contact NavCom's Sales team at +1 (310) 381-2000 or sales@NavComTech.com. LAND-PAK will be governed by NavCom's standard terms and conditions.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
