CHC Navigation announced today the successful delivery of 520 units of X91+ GNSS receivers to the Settlement and Land Records Department (SLRD), a part of the Myanmar Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation.

Awarded as one of the world’s largest GNSS tenders, CHC Navigation successfully delivered 520 units of X91+ receivers within the tight 60-day time frame allowed by the tender.

“This might be the largest single contract award for RTK receivers I’ve ever heard of,” commented Eric Gakstatter, GPS World’s survey editor.

The Settlement and Land Records Department activities encompass the collection of agricultural statistics, annual assessment of land revenue, land lease and tenure, and many other agricultural land administration tasks.

CHC Navigation, in cooperation with its distributor, IGS Company Limited, demonstrated the performance of the X91+ during stringent field technical assessments versus other major GNSS industry players.
