Tougher than Tough Enough. The SPS985 GNSS Smart Antenna is the smallest and toughest GNSS receiver we’ve ever built. And it’s also the most useful – as a GNSS rover system or as a Wi-Fi enabled base station the SPS985 does it all.

RUGGED, ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION
- Combines unprecedented strength and durability into a compact form that is easy to use and virtually indestructible.
- The most rugged receiver Trimble has ever built, so you won’t experience downtime with equipment that doesn’t work.
TRIMBLE XFILL TECHNOLOGY
- Optional Trimble xFill™ technology expands site productivity by allowing short excursions into valleys and other locations where GNSS corrections were not previously available.
- Can be easily moved from carrying case to range pole, tripod, t-bar, or vehicle with a single click.
- Easier and faster to get going and allows for more flexibility of operation techniques.
The Trimble SPS985 GNSS Smart Antenna and SCS900 Site Controller Software are ideal for:
- Measuring and verifying original ground levels and site features
- Monitoring real-time cut/fill information
- Checking finished grade and laid material thickness against design elevations and tolerances
- Computing progress and material stockpile volumes
- Monitoring, and conducting quality control for earthworks and paving operations
- Assessing as-built measurements and generating high quality reports for approvals and payment
When used as a rover, the SPS985 enables wide variety of site measurement tasks including pole-mounted for grade checking, ATV-mounted for progress monitoring, and truck-mounted for site supervision.
For initial site reconnaissance, you can deploy it with satellite-delivered GNSS corrections without a base station. For higher accuracy site measurements such as grade checking, it can receive Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) corrections via the internal wideband radio, Wi-Fi or the Internet.
A grade checker can mount the SPS985 to an ATV and easily conduct site topos, check as-builts and verify road centerlines where it is not easy or safe to walk with a range pole. Extending its productivity, the same unit can then be mounted on the roof of a supervisor’s truck roof to collect and manage progress data.
WI-FI BASE STATION
As a base station, the SPS985 incorporates Wi-Fi communications for small site projects and optional wideband radio for long-range operations on large projects.
Designed for ease of use, it will automatically establish a radio or Wi-Fi connection and transmit RTK corrections to another rover or machine control system. When it is that easy, construction crews can spend more time doing the work and less time setting up and maintaining the equipment.
