Latest GNSS technology from Leica

A four constellation GNSS will soon become reality, and will deliver a new dimension in GNSS performance and efficiency. Leica Geosystems’ concept means that all existing Leica GPS1200 systems can be upgraded to the very latest technology.

The announced Leica GPS1200+ supports the new GPS L5 signal, GLONASS L1 and L2, and will also be able to track Galileo and Compass satellites when available. The flexible design of Leica GPS1200+ is claimed to be 100% future proof and is already now compatible with the four global navigation satellite systems.

GPS L5 is the new third GPS frequency which will allow increased redundancy, faster signal acquisition, and improved multipath performance – ultimately resulting in longer RTK ranges and faster ambiguity resolution. Galileo will add another 30 satellites to the GPS and GLONASS constellation providing additional benefits. With an average of 20 satellites in view 24/7, the speed and accuracy of GNSS will be further improved.
