When The Coverage Is Hard To Find

Posted on April 8, 2014

that's when you need a clinometer.

Getting GPS and communications coverage in hilly terrain in New Zealand can be problematic. Our position on the globe means that satellites, particularly geostationary communication satellites, appear low on the horizon, especially in the deep south.

Vicinity Solutions recently sponsored the purchase of a Suunto Combined Compass Clinometer for the St John mobile command unit, seen here at a recent event near Queenstown.

Using the TANDEM-360PC/360R means much greater efficiency in selecting the optimal location to place the vehicle and set up the communications.

Would this technology be useful to you or your clients?
