Leica Geosystems GNSS Smart Antennas Comparison

Leica Geosystems GNSS Smart Antennas Comparison

With the recent launch of the new Leica GS18 I GNSS RTK Rover its a great opportunity to compare the impressive range of Leica Geosystems smart antennas. There are four GNSS smart antennas currently available in the current range, all impressive and include high levels of functionality and performance with the highest quality expected from a superior Leica Geosystems GNSS portfolio.

Leica GS07 - Lightweight and robust mid-range smart antenna.

Lightweight and robust mid-range smart antenna.


The Leica GS07 is the mid-range GNSS smart antenna known for being lightweight whilst still extremely robust which is focussed on functionality to perform exactly how it is required. It ensures fast and reliable data capture with stakeout combined in an easy-to-use rover with 320 channels, multi-frequency and multi-constellation. The Leica GS07 also supports communication devices such as UHF radios which are fully integrated into the Leica CS20 field controller.

Leica Viva GS16 - Industry leading self-learning GNSS smart antenna.

Industry leading self-learning GNSS smart antenna.


The Leica Viva GS16 is a more powerful and compact, self-learning GNSS smart antenna. Operating with the leading RTK technology, the Leica GS16 adheres to the highest measurement standards utilising RTKplus which provide accurate positions by intelligently adapting to changing conditions by selecting the optimal signal, and global SmartLink if the local correction service is unavailable due to obstructions or lack of cellular coverage.

Fastest and easiest-to-use GNSS RTK rover


The Leica GS18 T is the fastest and easiest-to-use GNSS RTK rover because there is no need to hold the pole vertical. This is due to the first true tilt compensation solution, an innovation that combines GNSS and inertial micro units (IMUs) which is immune to magnetic disturbances. With no calibration procedure or the need to watch and level the bubble, the Leica GS18 T increases productivity and saves time over conventional surveying practices.

Versatile, survey-grade GNSS RTK rover with Visual Positioning


The latest addition the range is the new Leica GS18 I, an extremely versatile, GNSS RTK rover which has all the functionality of the Leica GS18 T in with the added enhancement of Visual Positioning. This advancement in technology provides surveying professionals with the ability to use a GNSS rover to measure difficult to access points with ease and accuracy. Sensor fusion of GNSS, a camera and IMU combine to create Visual Positioning technology, allowing the site to be captured in images and measure points from them, either in on-site or later in the office.
