New Magellan ProMark(TM)3 RTK Alters the RTK Landscape

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 5, 2007— Building on the unparalleled success of its ProMark family of survey solutions, Magellan today announced the introduction of its ProMark3 RTK, designed to provide surveyors with centimeter accuracy in a real-time solution. Now surveyors can expand their business opportunities through RTK with significantly less investment than with competing systems. ProMark3 RTK includes new real time capabilities in addition to its existing complete post-processing and mapping features.

"Magellan has long been at the forefront of innovation and value when it comes to GNSS survey solutions. We are committed to providing our customers with reliable GNSS products that meet the needs of their application," said Nelson Chan, Magellan's chief executive officer. "The ProMark3 RTK is a perfect example of the solutions that only Magellan can effectively bring to the survey market - accuracy, reliability, ease of use and value all rolled up into one."

ProMark3 operates in two modes; base + rover and rover only. The rover can be connected to a real-time network through a GPRS-enabled cell phone using NTRIP and direct IP. The second mode of RTK operation, base + rover, employs an efficient plug-and-play spread-spectrum radio solution that does not require a license or separate configuration integrated with ProMark3 RTK.

BLADE(TM) technology - Magellan's proprietary GNSS processing solution -- enables ProMark3 RTK to outperform single-frequency RTK receivers and grants real-time performances in a lightweight handheld system. This exclusive technology uses dual satellite systems (GPS + SBAS) to drive rapid initialization, reliability and real-time centimeter level accuracy to make the ProMark3 RTK a new reference for RTK surveying.

ProMark3 RTK also offers the option of FAST Survey(TM). This advanced field software is typically associated with more expensive RTK systems and makes it possible for experienced professional surveyors and novice RTK users alike to run complete survey jobs, including stake-out, roading, combining projects done in association with total stations, and much more.

Current ProMark3 users can upgrade their systems with the new RTK version. ProMark3 RTK is planned for May release. For more information regarding Magellan Professional survey, GIS and GNSS board solutions, visit
