Falcon is a full featured GNSS, tracking satelites from all major positioning systems, Falcon will always produce accurate results, which can then be used by a whole host of applications. When used with a Base Station, or VRS network, Falcon SF will produce precise (1 cm + 0.5ppm) positions, and using the Starfire for Life option 5 cm accuracy can be achieved anywhere on the planet with no base station or correction signal. This is a very unique combination and makes Falcon SF perfect for remote and difficult areas. The Falcon SF GPS is not only accurate but its smart. The heart of Falcon is its precise GNSS Onyx™ core that gives superior results, but Falcon also has a brain, which is a built in Arm Processor running Windows 10 or Linux. This gives Falcon the ability to think for itself, to log data, run user programs, talk to the cloud, and more.
UHF, GSM, Wifi, and Bluetooth communication links with support for multiple RTK formats allows the Falcon SF rover to work with a variety of base stations and VRS RTK networks.
StarFire is a global satellite-based augmentation system (GSBAS) which provides five centimeter positioning accuracy on a worldwide basis. Falcon SF includes a free lifetime license for StarFire. Aside from giving excellent accuracy StarFire also makes Falcon extremely easy to use because there is no need for base stations, sim cards, or any other communications, its just press the on button and go.
Falcon SF with UltraRTK can give excellent coverage with baselines up to 40km, and protection against communication outages of up to 15 minutes is easily handled with RTK Extend™
Falcon has a unique configuration that allows it to be setup and configured to mimic other GPS units and therefore run other software.
Everything collected by Falcon can instantly be backed up to the cloud where work can be monitored and processing can be started before the GNSS has even left the field. This connection also allows workers to share work as they are surveying and monitor work that has already been completed.
Although Falcon can work with most industry standard data loggers and software, Falcon also has built in logging. You can log data right on the instrument without the need for a datalogger.
With Falcon you can write your own applications for the GNSS and The Falcon band is worn on the wrist and gives you complete control of the Falcon remotely. Logging can be triggered, data displayed, and all in a rugged sunlight readable form factor.
Now external sensors like echo sounders and cable detectors can be interfaced directly to the GNSS.
The rugged, waterproof and shock proof design coupled with hot swappable batteries ensures continuous operation in the harshest of environments. Designed for all day use in surveying environments it includes several I/O op
