Ukrainian company launches mobile RTK receiver

Ukrainian firm Geometer International has launched a product which can be used on-farm for surveying, landscaping, and mapping trenches and fields, despite disruption from tensions with Russia.

Designed as a mobile, handheld and real-time kinematic positioning (RTK) receiver, the Walker allows users to determine their location within centimetre accuracy.

To do this, the product uses global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) corrections.

The lightweight device weighs just 250g and is based on an aluminium pole that can be extended to 1.73m or folded to 0.55m for transport.

A simple power button activates the receiver and any smartphone will be compatible with the system, which has no wires or cables.

Instead, there is a built-in battery pack, which the maker says should last more than 20 hours.

Data collected by the Walker RTK can be easily transferred via the Mapios online platform, which uses a KML file import feature.

From here, the maps can be shared and edited by multiple users simultaneously.

Prices start at £1,116, and includes the Walker RTK GNSS receiver, the Helical antenna, a smartphone bracket, and access to the Geometer app.
