Description

Add this Ground Station module to your ground station computer to unlock Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technology for centimeter location accuracy horizontally and vertically. 

Alta X with F9P GPS installed (not compatible with Here2 GPS). 

RTK Overview

RTK technology uses a pair of modules to increase positional accuracy. One module is installed on the aircraft (this module is called the “Rover") and the other will mount on a tripod and be connected to your ground station computer (the “Ground Station” module).

The Ground Station module will let your ground station computer send GPS corrections to the Rover module (on the aircraft) that increase precision from a few meters to a few centimeters, in real-time. 

Application 

This kit comes with one module, magnetic mounting hardware for common tripods (1/4" 20), and a USB cable. Here's what you will need if you have:

1. An Alta X with F9P GPS (not Here2) and you want full RTK capability:

  • One RTK GPS Ground Station for your ground station computer
  • A radio to communicate between the ground station computer and the Alta (FRX Pro, etc)
