The Handheld Group in Sweden has added real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning capabilities from u-blox to three of its rugged devices.

RTK is used to enhance the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems. RTK is now available on the newly launched Algiz RT10 rugged tablet and the Nautiz X81 rugged handheld, as well as the hugely popular Nautiz X6 rugged phablet.  

By adding the RTK functionality, field workers can depend on high-precision GNSS while retaining great mobility. With 5G/4G capabilities, you can communicate seamlessly from the field to the back office and rely on steady connectivity to GNSS RTK network corrections. The integrated multi-band GNSS high-precision receiver from u-blox  in Switzerland uses correction data from a wireless RTK network to deliver precise, continually available, satellite-corrected position and time information for accurate positioning.

The Algiz RT10, Nautiz X81 and the Nautiz X6 are built to handle tough environments. They are IP67-rated as well as MIL-STD-810 tested and can handle extreme temperatures. The also provide complex graphics with high-resolution screen technology with super-hardened glass and sunlight viewability.

“We are excited about the possibilities with RTK bringing reliable sub-meter accuracy to the Algiz RT10, Nautiz X81 and the Nautiz X6. This line of RTK products is perfect for outdoor users who require full mobility and accurate positioning. This gives our already competitive product range an extra edge,” said Johan Hed, chief product officer, Handheld Group, which recently became part of the MilDef group.
