ASE was the first firm in the Midwest to use GPS for surveying applications. In the early 1990s we offered training classes for our peers and leased GPS equipment to them, because we felt strongly that this technology was going to revolutionize the surveying profession. As the technology matured into kinematic and RTK, we stayed ahead of the curve and were consistently testing equipment for manufacturers (Trimble) before the equipment was commercially available. We have the latest RTK/DGPS equipment available for every one of our crews in the field, and it is integrated into every aspect of our performance.
We do a great number of projects that require high precision and accuracy over large distances, and we have performed some of the most challenging and technically complex control surveys in the Midwest including:
- GPS for Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) Networks
- Illinois Height Modernization Program
- Ground Control for Large-Scale Mapping and Photogrammetric Projects
