Overview

Purpose-built, solar-powered automated movement detection. Designed for rapid field deployment in slopes, open-pit mines, dams, landslides, and structures.

NavStar’s GMS800 combines compactness and high-precision in a GPS/GNSS sensor with a 1.35 kg, Fibreglass Reinforced Polyester 16 cm cube enclosure, making it suitable for rapid deployment on various projects while maintaining connection via Integrated Mesh, WiFi, or LTE radios using the 900MHz frequency band.

With environmental sensors for temperature, input voltage, input current, charge voltage, charge current and runtime metrics, the GMS800 is designed to provide 24/7 automated monitoring data in extreme climates, from temperatures of –40°C to +85°C.

The GMS800 uses a Real-time Kinematic GNSS processing-based monitoring system consisting of one main base station and one or more GNSS Rover units. The base station is always powered and active, receiving data from as many satellites as possible.

The GMS800 is fully supported by the GeoExplorer software platform for integrated monitoring projects collecting real-time monitoring data.

The repeatability and precision of GNSS measurements at a particular location and time are affected by the number and geometric distribution of satellites in the visible sky, the effect of multipathing, the distance of the unit from the base station, and other factors. The measurement performance stated above assumes a typical installation with favourable topography.

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
