High-Accuracy Correction Service Available to Survey and Land Administration ProfessionalsESSEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that its Trimble® CenterPoint™ RTX™ correction service will be available to survey and land administration professionals around the world. Powered by Trimble RTX technology, the GPS, GLONASS and QZSS enabled correction service can offer better than 4 centimeter (1.5 inch) repeatable horizontal accuracy, without requiring the use of a base station or local VRS network.
The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2013, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.
In addition to previously announced Agriculture devices, the CenterPoint RTX correction service is now compatible with the Trimble ProXRT for Land Administration and the Trimble R10 GNSS receivers. The worldwide subscription service is expected to be available to geospatial users in the fourth quarter of 2013.
No Additional Hardware Required
Delivered via L-band satellite, CenterPoint RTX is ideal for geospatial professionals who are not using RTK as the primary correction source. Advantageous in remote areas that lack local infrastructure and/or cellular coverage, the corrections are delivered directly to the GNSS receiver. No additional hardware, including radios, antennas, or even cellular data plans, is required to use the correction service.
"By combining global coverage, fast initialization times, and high-accuracy correction data, Trimble CenterPoint RTX offers geospatial professionals unprecedented operating freedom," said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble's Positioning Services Division. "We are committed to offering field-proven positioning corrections to address a variety of users' needs across applications and markets, starting with agriculture and now reaching into the geospatial markets."

About Trimble RTX Technology
Trimble RTX (Real Time eXtended) is a high-accuracy GNSS correction technology delivering repeatable positions worldwide. By combining real-time data with innovative positioning and compression algorithms, Trimble RTX technology utilizes data from a global reference station infrastructure to compute high accuracy positions based on satellite orbit and clock information. Trimble RTX technology enables various solutions—including Trimble's RTX-based family of real-time correction services as well as the post-processing variant, Trimble Pivot™ RTX App and Trimble Pivot RTX App-PP infrastructure solutions, and the Trimble xFill™ bridging feature which "fills in" for RTK corrections in the event of temporary radio or Internet connection outages.
Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Solutions are focused on applications requiring position or location—including surveying, construction, agriculture, fleet and asset management, public safety and mapping. In addition to utilizing positioning technologies, such as GPS, lasers and optics, Trimble solutions may include software content specific to the needs of the user. Wireless technologies are utilized to deliver the solution to the user and to ensure a tight coupling of the field and the back office. Founded in 1978, Trimble is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif.
