1. Equip your car

Mount the TRIUMPH-2 and radio on top of your car or truck. You can use either UHF or FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) radios. You may want to bolt them down in your car for everyday use. FHSS does not need a license but its range is limited to a couple of miles. UHF has a longer range (up to 50 miles with a 35 Watt amplifier) but it needs a license. FHSS is particularly helpful in connection with our Beast Mode RTK which provides corrections from a TRIUMPH-2 near your job site. Use an appropriate long whip UHF/FHSS for longer range transmission.

2. Park your car, Start Base

Park your car in an open area near your job site. It may be even in the middle of your site job. Engage all the brakes and ensure the car will not move. The Base/ Rover Setup screen makes it easy to configure the base and rover with the same parameters.

Use “Auto” for the base coordinate. “Auto” will use an autonomous solution as the base coordinates which may be off by several meters (this will be corrected later). Then click Start Base.

3. RTK Survey

Use your rover to perform your tasks. We have combined UHF and Spread Spectrum Frequency Hopping (FHSS) in the same module in TRIUMPH-LS as an option. The automatic “Verify” feature (Phase-1 and Phase-2) ensures that you will never get a wrong solution.

Since your RTK baselines are short, you benefit from all advantages that we discussed earlier BUT all your rover shots are shifted by the offset error of the autonomous base coordinates (up to several meters). “DPOS-It” or “Reverse-Shift-It” to correct for the error from the autonomous positon.

4. DPOS-it or Reverse-Shift-it

Press Stop Base and this will automatically download the raw GNSS base data to TRIUMPH-LS and send it to DPOS for processing with data from nearby CORS receivers. The TRIUMPH-LS then receives the correct coordinates of the base and shifts all the rover points accordingly. DPOS, CORS data and J-Field’s RTK Verification guarantee your rover solutions.

1) Take the TRIUMPH-LS to a known point and select the “Shift” function in the Setup Advanced screen. 2) Enter the known coordinates of that point. 3) Take a shot at that point and a base station shift will be calculated and applied to all previous and subsequent points surveyed in this session. You can then also use the newly surveyed
