The smart antenna comes with built-in software. This software allows to carry out the measurement in the field. The software also includes post-processing software: "StaticToRinex" and "GEO Geomatics Office" (GGO), installed on a PC. This software provides for the smart antenna modules interfacing, setting up and controlling the workflow, storing and transmitting the measurement results, and post-processing of the measured data. Software protection against unintentional and deliberate changes corresponds to the "High" level in accordance with R 50.2.077-2014.
