Robotic Riverbed Survey Vessel Tracked with FOCUS 35 Total Station
December 05, 2016
Preston, Lancashire, UK (November 28, 2016). To increase interest and involvement of people in protecting and improving the Ribble River, the Ribble Rivers Trust recently commissioned a bathymetry survey of a notable section of the riverbed. A robotically controlled 1.2-meter twin-hull shallow draft vessel owered by a twin jet system was used to survey approximately a hectare of the river’s bed. Aboard the vessel was a depth recording sonar and a tracking prism that enabled a Spectra Precision FOCUS 35 total station to lock onto and robotically follow and record the location of the vessel.

Saskatchewan Bridges in Better Shape with Aid of FOCUS 30 Robotic Total Stations
November 21, 2014
Saskatchewan, Canada, (November 21st, 2014) -- Across the vast remote prairies and boreal forests of Saskatchewan lie numerous bridges, large and small, traversing the drainage basins of this huge landlocked province. Building and repairing bridges is a continuing important task for Canada Bridge, a division of Minty’s Moving. In the often isolated regions that Scott Gullacher, engineer and project manager, works, the survey methods have until recently relied on rudimentary devices, including tape measure, string line, plumb bob, laser level and rod.
Spectra Precision ProMark Helps Find Mines in Bosnia-Herzegovina
November 20, 2014
Bosnia and Herzegovina is burdened with one of the world’s most severe land mine problems as a result of the four years of hostilities from 1992 to 1995 that left an estimated two million unexploded landmines and munitions scattered in 28,699 locations throughout the country. In one district in the northeast of the country, Posavina Without Mines (PWM), a humanitarian, non-profit NGO, is under contract with the government of the District of Br?ko to warn residents of mined areas by permanently marking suspected contaminated areas, removing the lethal objects, and helping mine-affected victims
Introducing the new FOCUS 35 Robotic Total Station
November 13, 2014
The Spectra Precision FOCUS 35 is a new range of motorized total stations providing high speed, accuracy and precision in measurement. The FOCUS 35 robotic instrument moves the power of the observer from the instrument to the range pole, improving efficiency. The speed of observation and precise positioning of the FOCUS 35 Robotic Total Station is provided by patented StepDrive™ motion technology, which controls the horizontal and vertical motion of the motors, eliminating the need for traditional motion locks. The FOCUS 35 includes a tracking sensor that uses LockNGo™ FastTrack tracking technology, enabling the instrument to constantly lock onto the prism.
