Brian Blakeman Surveys (BBS), a company providing professional land survey services in the Northern Territory, Australia, completed an in-depth case study of the Reach RS2 performance. The BBS team tested the Reach RS2 accuracy and usability in a wide range of field scenarios. The crucial part of the research was comparing the Reach accuracy against the benchmarks. As a result, Reach showed reliable centimeter accuracy in the RTK survey.
Reach RS2 established in the urban environment in Australia
Reach RS2 set up for a performance test in central Australia
The surveyors assessed the performance of Reach RS2 and another traditional receiver against two benchmarks using a local base. The tests were done using MGA94 Zone 53 and ellipsoidal heights.
Ultimately, Reach RS2 showed cm-accurate results of the observations against the known coordinates. The table below summarises the devices’ performance.
