Explore the major geomatic applications where CHCNAV's high-precision, reliable, and robust GNSS solutions are the go-to tool:
- Cadastral Surveying
With increasing urbanization, the need to accurately measure property boundaries becomes essential. Authorities need accurate land mapping to manage properties efficiently. CHCNAV's smart antennas and GNSS total stations play a crucial role in providing this information.

- Construction Surveying and Earthmoving
Accurate measurements are essential to ensure that buildings, roads, and other structures are built according to plan. The CHCNAV's GNSS smart antennas, sensors, field controllers, and software provide surveyors with the accurate data they need to do their jobs efficiently. In addition, the CHCNAV's GNSS RTK networks can significantly improve construction project operations by providing consistent positioning accuracy for all surveying tasks across the site and between various operators, regardless of the brand of RTK rover used.
Our GNSS machine control solutions enable equipment operators to do their work efficiently by bringing significant gains in productivity, accuracy, and speed to earthmoving and grading jobs.

- Infrastructure Monitoring
CHCNAV GNSS sensors and antennas help prevent natural disasters and enable rapid emergency response by monitoring critical infrastructure and the physical environment. Our server-based CPS RTK Network software, P5 geodetic GNSS stations, and C220GR2 GNSS antennas provide a powerful enterprise solution that delivers the highest accuracy and uninterrupted positioning and navigation services.

- Mine Surveying
Accurate GNSS positioning is crucial in every phase of open pit mining. Highly accurate topographic information is required for the operational safety of staff and machinery and for the success of mining operations throughout the life cycle, including exploration, discovery, development, production, and reclamation. CHC Navigation offers a full range of advanced technologies to help mining companies streamline exploration and development and gain a competitive advantage.
- Mapping and GIS, Photogrammetry, Laser scanning
Collecting accurate GNSS data is essential for mapping, environmental planning, and urban design. Aerial surveys for 3D modeling require real-time or post-processed GNSS data for georeferencing, and high-precision GNSS systems are used to georeference point clouds generated by laser scanning and mobile mapping systems. CHCNAV offers devices designed to meet the need for highly accurate topographic information fundamental to the achievement and reliability of any project.

- Marine Surveying
The marine survey encompasses a wide range of activities that rely on GNSS technology, including seabed exploration, tidal and current estimation, and offshore monitoring through bathymetric and hydrographic surveys. The results of these activities are critical to marine construction and navigation. CHCNAV's versatile and robust USVs can be equipped with instruments such as a single or multibeam echo sounder, GNSS RTK receiver, and other sensors. This reduces survey time, improves work efficiency, and generates high-resolution data that consistently meet the stringent requirements of hydrographic survey projects.
