Triumph-Family

Systems on a chip (SoC) are in trend now and I think that one tiny multi-band, multi constellation receiver, packaged in a low power consumption module could also re-launch Triumph-F1 program.

Hope that Javad can do it. My motto for this:

864 channels SoC
Made by Javad
Will be a shock
Coolest "Family" ad.

In a several days surveying campaign, far away from my home desktop computer, I will always need another device to work, both in the field or in the hotel/conference room, sometime with only a 10000 mAh power bank all day long. Until now, my Intel Compute Stick did a great job. After two years of experience with it, I will give five stars to this tiny, yet powerful device.

So why not a Javad rugged GNSS docking station with computer inside for the T3 receiver, that could bring additional battery power and multiple other functionalities/benefits that surely could replace a common laptop? A GNSS docking station could help T3 to last longer, probably with a total weigh less than the Triumph-LS.

With Intel Compute Card sealed inside ( https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/boards-kits/compute-card.html ) and assembled with a T3 receiver, the combined (screwed tight) tool will run any surveying software we want, on any display we find (Wi-Fi remote display, HDMI output, etc.), even on the walls for training/presentations with a mini projector ( https://www.sony.com/electronics/projector/mp-cl1a ).

Always, a second computer will be a must for every surveyor in the field. Why not a rugged one from Javad?

This computer will run Civil 3D or Carlson Survey, Justin, Star*Net, Carlson SurvPC, etc. on Windows 10 or J-Field on LINUX.
It is more than "basically the LS". Anyway, it is just a suggestion for "travel". Besides that, it does not get old, because I could change the card.
Just my opinion.

I'm looking at upgrading my base from a T2 to a T1M or T3... What advantages will the T3 have over the T1M?

Comparing the Triumph-3 to the Triumph-1M, the Triumph-3 has a new GNSS board which will have improved tracking performance. The Triumph-3 also has an external UHF antenna port that will allow users to put a high gain antenna on the receiver and will also allow the UHF antenna to be raised up without requiring the receiver itself to be elevated. Because the Triumph-1M uses a specialized UHF antenna that mounts to the bottom of the receiver, when you want to raise the antenna, you also must raise the receiver as well.

Other advantages of the Triumph-3 include external radio (UHF or FHSS), cellular, Bluetooth, WiFi, and GNSS. I'm not sure if those are standard or options. For Bluetooth and WiFi this should make for much better range. For cellular, this means you will be able to use antennas tuned for a particular carrier (AT&T uses a different frequency from Verizon). For radio, as I mentioned above, you will be able use a high gain antenna and elevate it independently from the receiver. With the external GNSS (which is also available on the Triumph-1M), would also allow the receiver to be used as a permanent or semi-permanent base station.

Since we don't know T3 pricing yet...

Is there any talk of an inexpensive multi-constellation receiver geared towards static / OPUS like the igage stuff?

I am aware of the T2. I do large static campaigns 2 or 3 times a year with 5-11 receivers in mostly nasty nasty areas. If I am going to buy new I am thinking about GPS/GLONASS/Galileo and setup for static only, no need to pay for options I won't use. I was only referencing the IGage / OPUS as an example as I do all my own processing on these projects to take advantage of GLONASS.

The ticket is the inexpensive receivers - static only, no options. JAVAD already has DPOS which would be better than OPUS with the extra constellations. It seems like a similar upload and processing program like Igage/OPUS is close with the LS/DPOS. Simple receiver - access with the JAVAD app, and upload the files to computer or the cloud. Process and kick out coordinates. Heck, with DPOS & Justin, something like OPUS projects may not be far off.

I'd like to see all of the Triumph products DESIGNED for 25 hr battery life (as a new product) The LS is this way. This alone, can save a day.

Some "alpine" building corners, within 5-10m range from the receiver, convinced me not to use the TS.

JMT helped me with the offsets calculations, but the team that made the correct alignment for the wireless carriers antenna, caught my attention.


This are probably the best antenna alignment tools on the market with GPS/GLONASS and SBAS corrections for the moment.


Very familiar. And they even have a laser range finder paired with Bluetooth.

Now wait a minute. I could use such a tool for my offsets!
I guess..
