Nikon Nivo 5M Total Station Chosen for Aircraft Leveling
November 08, 2012
One of the world’s most successful military training aircraft, the PZL-130 TC Orlik, manufactured by EADS PZL "Warszawa-Okecie" S.A., is now being leveled with the aid of a Nikon Nivo 5M total station. Aircraft leveling, both longitudinal (forward and aft) and lateral (left to right), is performed in the final stages of assembly. Accurate leveling of the aircraft on the ground is required before precise alignment and symmetry checks can be performed to confirm that the geometry of the aircraft is to specification
ProMark Mali Hydro-Agriculture Mapping Project Relies on ProMark GNSS Technology
June 15, 2012
In the heart of landlocked Mali, the Atlantic Ocean 800 miles to the south the Sahara desert adjacent to the north, lays the extraordinary Inner Niger River Delta, also known as the Macina, a 1.8 million hectar oasis of lakes and floodplains with a vast potential for hydro agriculture. CIRA, a major West African consulting engineering firm, working on behalf of the Office du Niger, a quasi-governmental Mali company charged with managing more than 100,000 hectares of irrigated delta land, has completed surveying an additional 25,000 hectares for hydro-agriculture development.

Beneath the surface of this tropical paradise in the city of Townsville on Australia’s Sunshine Coast lies a still hidden maze of tunnels and underground bunkers, once said to be used by General Douglas MacArthur. Learning the secrets of this labyrinth that was a major WWII staging point for battles in the South West Pacific is the passion of Kevin Parkes, of Geo Positioning Services, a local Ashtech dealer.
New Simplified Accuracy Check of As-Built Plans for Recently Buried Fibre Optic Lines
June 30, 2011
Confirming the accuracy of as-built plans for recently buried fiber optic, gas and electric lines has become much simpler and more efficient with the aid of the Ashtech ProMark 500 GNSS receiver and a new EdiPocket GIS software module. SIEA, a French association that manages energy, communication, electricity and gas networks for the 419 communes of the Ain department in eastern France, has found the innovative new method both simple and efficient, and it expects that it can lead to improved contractor performance.
