Slingshot RTK

Microscopic accuracy. Massive range.

The precision and power of Slingshot® RTK comes from
its breakthrough wireless connectivity with cell phone
networks.

With the power of Slingshot® RTK correction signals, operators no longer have to worry about line-of-sight obstructions.  Hills, valleys, trees, buildings or other structures are suddenly irrelevant. 

The days of being limited by the range of radio transmitters, most of which are good for only five to ten miles, are over.

 

Dealers who provide Slingshot® RTK service can forget about installing an army of radio transmitters. 

Cell towers are your new antennas. With a single base station, you can deliver RTK correction data over the Internet through those towers to vehicle operators.

Slingshot® is compatible with major cell phone technologies. It means:

1) An order-of-magnitude increase in the area you can serve with a single RTK correction source.

2) Customers in regions that previously didn’t have access to RTK technology can now upgrade their operation to a new level of precision.

SLINGSHOT® BASE STATIONS

As a grower, the reliability of the Slingshot® Base Station  provides peace of mind knowing downtime is a thing of the past. The redundant back-ups on the system ensure that you will receive RTK corrections when you want, every time you want them.

As a dealer, you can benefit from a base station in the following ways:

  • Longer Baselines for RTK Corrections
  • Reduced Infrastructure Costs
  • Unlimited Number of Users per Base
  • Two Year Warranty

And don't worry, we won't just sell you a base station and wash our hands. Raven staff will monitor, manage, and support all of our base stations in partnership with you - the dealer.
