Shanghai, China: CHC – manufacturer of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) solution, announced its X90 GPS receiver has obtained ISO 17123-8:2007 certification. The validation process was performed by the Center for Applied Geomatics (CAG), Military University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland.
This ISO certification specifies the field procedures for determining and evaluating the precision of GNSS field measurement systems in real-time kinematic (GNSS RTK).
In October 2010, a series of tests were conducted to validate the accuracy of X90, using both standard single base station and network RTK solution services from Active Geodetic Network – European Position Determination System (ASG-EUPOS; NAWGEO: FKP2.3, VRS 2.3 and VRS3.1) under various environments.
“In accordance to our ISO 9001 quality system, we have decided to handover the evaluation of our X90 GPS receiver to an independent and recognised European organisation. The results show a xy/h standard deviation always lower than 12 mm, validating the field results obtained every day by our customers in more than 50 countries,” said George Zhao, CEO of CHC.
