Trimble has announced the take-over of AXIO-NET GmbH from Airbus Defence and Space. AXIO-NET is a Germany-based provider of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) corrections and professional data services serving the domestic market, the United Kingdom and Benelux.
AXIO-NET delivers both real-time and post-processed network Real Time Kinematic (RTK) solutions to a broad range of users including surveyors, GIS professionals and farmers. In addition to traditional correction services, AXIO-NET performs a variety of data-based professional services for the geospatial market, including coordinate transformation services as well as network set-up, configuration and operations consulting.
Both companies philosophies are highly complementary and together, they will extend Trimble’s position as a global leader of GNSS corrections, said Patricia Boothe, general manager of Trimble’s Advanced Positioning Division. Trimble stated it is committed to supporting AXIO-NET’s brand-agnostic position, while leveraging their experience with professional services, not only in traditional markets such as geospatial and agriculture, but in emerging high-accuracy GNSS markets such as automotive.
