December 2009

This following Intuicom product brochure is noted in margin notes and republished by Skybridge Spectrum Foundation and Telesaurus LLCs (Sky-Tel) (Berkeley, California) (SkyTel). Sky-Tel holds 200 and 900 MHz FCC licenses (CMRS and PMRS) nationwide in the US for C-HALO (Cooperative High Accuracy Location) and tightly integrated communications for Smart Transport, Energy, and Environment Radio (STEER) systems, with no-charge core services for highway safety and flow, better energy systems, and environmental monitoring and protection. Sky-Tel C-HALO will use GPS-GNSS with N-RTK (and eventually also multilateration pseudolites, INS, and other mobile location techniques). The following Intuicom product (by Freewave) is an example of a Phase-1 of G1 product for use in Sky-Tel C-HALO: Under FCC rules Sky-Tel under its M-LMS 900 MHz licenses can use Part-90 power up to 30W ERP in PMRS M-LMS type-approved equipment, and can also use “unlicensed” equipment certified under Part 15 that operates in 902-928 MHz, both in its M-LMS subbands (904-909.75 MHz and 927.75-928 MHz) with no height restriction, and in the rest of 902-928 MHz on a Part-15 basis and under the “safe harbor” in FCC rule sec. 90.361. Thus, in existing radios such as this one from Intuicom (other vendors make somewhat similar radios), Sky-Tel may (1) use it as-is for a 1G radio for C-HALO: it comes with (a) 2-band unlicensed-band functionality: 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz, and (b) licensed-band CDMA/GSM functionality, or (2) use it with ‘a’ but swap out the ‘b’ for (c): a similar-power or higher-power PMRS licensed radio operating in its M-LMS subbands, or (3) use it with ‘a’ and ‘b’ and add ‘c’.

Intuicom’s RTK Bridge-C™ is a field hardened network device that enables the broadcast of GPS Network corrections to be transmitted across radio systems. The RTK Bridge-C replaces the GPS base station and extends Networked GPS corrections to projects and areas where these corrections may not otherwise be available or easily accessible.
BASIC OPERATION The RTK Bridge-C interfaces to the Internet via embedded cell modem and can automatically log on to GPS Network servers including Leica Spider and Trimble VRS. The RTK Bridge-C establishes connectivity, authenticates, and then pulls the appropriate RTK corrections for its location. These corrections are then broadcast over radio to the roving GPS receivers that utilize the correction messages for accurate positioning.

FUNCTIONALITY AND FLEXIBILITY The RTK Bridge-C supports all primary correction formats including MAX, i-MAX, AutoMax, CMR+, and RTCM 2.0/3.x. The RTK Bridge-C offers the option of the Intuicom’s “best-in-class” embedded radio in 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz; as well as supporting 3rd party radios and existing legacy radio systems. EASE OF USE The RTK Bridge-C has been designed with simplicity in mind. Set up takes only minutes from the box to the field. Simply enter your login parameters or NTRIP configurations and the message type you wish to receive, and you can begin. GET THE MAX FROM INTUICOM Forget GPS Base Stations and get all the power of GPS Network corrections including locations outside of cellular coverage and Internet access. The RTK Bridge-C gets the user the maximum performance from available GPS Networks.

• Supports NTRIP protocol & raw TCP sockets • Embedded radio options • Waterproof for operation in all field conditions • Extended temperature range: -35˚ to +75˚C • Compatible with Trimble, Topcon, Leica and all major precision GPS instruments
