C-Nav used on Kenya lake surveys: Crocodiles and allC-Nav the premier supplier of international GNSS Precise Point Positioning services, was chosen by Fathoms Ltd. to meet their project's tough positioning requirements.

Fathoms, with offices in Somerset and Caithness, UK, were recently awarded a survey for Kenya's Natural Resource Management Project. Fathoms used C-Nav positioning solutions when surveying the Masinga, Kamburu, Sasumua and Kdakaini lakes supplying hydroelectric energy and drinking water to the major cities. The surveys were not without significant challenges including contending with the lakes' populations of hippopotami and crocodiles; special precautions were needed to ensure that the animals were undisturbed and that environmental impacts were minimal.

Positioning throughout was achieved with C-Nav2050M GPS receivers and real-time C-NavC1 RTG satellite broadcast correctors. Matt French, Fathoms' Managing Director, used one word to describe the performance and accuracy of the C-Nav solution - " Superb".
