Ashtech Ranger Receiver: Compact GPS Solution

The Ashtech Ranger™ GPS receiver and its provided software is a complete point-positioning system for GIS location and route mapping over a wide range.

Offered by Ashtech, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high precision GPS receiver systems headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., the Ashtech Ranger uses the same "All- In-View" dedicated 12-channel C/A code tracking features of the Ashtech M-XII Receiver. The Ranger was specifically developed to meet the needs of the GIS professional. The unit continuously tracks up to 12 satellites simultaneously on 12 separate and parallel channels. Since satellite range information can be tor offset is accurately and efficiently removed. The Ranger is not a sequencing receiver.

Supplying accuracy of 25 meters or less SEP, the Ranger provides entry of 99 waypoints from either the keyboard or via data link for waypoint navigation features. Complete navigation information is displayed to provide course-to-destination, time-to-destination, cross-track error, speed-over-ground and heading.

The receiver is lightweight and measures 3.9 inches high by 8.5 inches wide by 8 inches deep, making it easily portable and mountable.

Besides its GPS product line, Ashtech has a fully equipped GPS Training Center in Sunnyvale. The company offers a four-day training program and advanced training courses as well.
