Leica Introduces New

GPS Chart Plotter

The new Leica MK 40 GPS chart plot- ter provides a combination of an advanced high-accuracy GPS receiver, built-in C-MAP NT vector cartography and a high-resolution direct sunlight readable screen.

The MK 40 is the first chart plotter to be based on IBM's leading-edge silicon germanium (SiGe) chip technology.

The embedded 12-channel high-accura- cy GPS receiver board in the MK 40 was the result of a two-year R&D pro- ject by Leica Geosystems and IBM


The combination of Leica's GPS receiver architecture and IBM's advanced SiGe integrated circuit tech- nology has resulted in a GPS receiver with unprecedented processing power, sensitivity and accuracy.

The GPS receiver and optional dual- channel DGPS beacon receiver are sealed inside the MK 40's low-profile "smart" antenna unit. The waterproof ultra-thin MK 40 display and control unit can be mounted below decks or in an open cockpit.
