Trimble GA830 Antenna dramatically improve the out of band signal rejection for the high band frequencies (1525 – 1610 MHz) through increasing the number of filters and changing the steepness of the frequency response. The changes can be seen in the frequency response plots for Zephyr 2 versus Zephyr 3 which uses the same architecture as the GA830. The Iridium filtering on the GA830 is independent of the MSS wide/narrow band filtering. The GA830 provides 35 dB of rejection (relative to the GPS L1 Center frequency) for the Inmarsat and Iridium signals.

In this recent webinar the Trimble Access and Trimble Business Centre product team went through how to leverage Trimble Geospatial software to turn a road corridor design into a constructible model. First using an existing alignment to design a corridor in Trimble Business Center (TBC) software and then, uploading it to Trimble Connect to import into the Trimble® Access™ Roads module. Different types of road corridor creation methods—such as a surface and alignment or strings and an alignment—were shown in TBC and then leveraged into different road design data for Trimble Access.
