Juniper Geode

Juniper-Systems-LogoThe Juniper Geode Sub-meter GNSS receiver is a NEW PRODUCT from Juniper Systems; Released August 2016.

Geode-Landscape

Built to the exacting standards of Juniper Systems, the Geode is rugged L1 GNSS receiver (GPS/Glonass), 10 hour battery life between charges  and has a very small “footprint” (100 mm x 100 mm x 70 mm) and weighing only 0.8 Kg.

Mounted on an adjustable carbon fiber rover pole or camera mono-pod the Geode provides an accurate height also. With excellent mounting options the Geode can be mounted on a vehicle, motor bike or ATV with ease.

This product opens up a NEW WORLD for GIS Asset Management  NOT previously available in a small package.

Juniper Geode

Using SBAS correction, the Geode delivers a **300 mm accuracy of position, height accuracy 600 mm, (post-processing the data points achieves a 50 mm accuracy of position  and 100 mm in height).

Coupled with the Mesa 2, this is a powerful GIS companion product.

Ideally suited to GIS Asset Management for Electricity Distribution Networks. Also suited to University Field Research, Geological Survey and Agricultural Field Research and Mapping.

** Dependent on Satellite Constellation Geometry.

REAL-TIME SUB-METER GPS RECEIVER

With the Geode, you can easily collect real-time, sub-meter GNSS data without the huge price tag or complexity of other precision receivers.

Designed with versatility in mind, the Geode works with a wide range of Windows®, Windows Mobile, and Android® devices to fit your needs exactly, and is especially useful for bring-your-own-device workplaces.

Take the Geode with you mounted on a pole, in a pack, or held in your hand to collect real-time sub-meter GNSS data in harsh environments, using almost any handheld device.
