Cast has 20 Juno 3B and 20 Juno ST handhelds which are fully-integrated field computers, providing 2 to 5 meter GPS positioning in real time or after post-processing.
As early as 1992, CAST was designated as a Center of Excellence for “Global Positioning System Mapping Systems: Training and Research” by Trimble Navigation Ltd and has continued to be actively involved in applying GPS in a variety of research projects and outreach activities. Through this corporate agreement and with support from a 2003-2005 NSF Major Research Instrumentation grant (BCS-0321286) and University of Arkansas TELE funds, CAST obtained and now maintains a complete suite of Trimble GPS mapping and surveying hardware.
This equipment is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students of the university working on internally or externally funded research.
