Emlid Reach Rs2 Multi-Band RTK GNSS Receiver with Centimeter Precision
For Drone Surveying, Mapping and Navigation
Gets a fix in seconds
Reach RS2 gets a fixed solution in just seconds and maintains robust performance even in challenging conditions. Centimeter accuracy can be achieved on distances up to 60 km in RTK, and 100 km in PPK mode.
GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS
L1OF, L2OF, L1C/A, L2C, E1B/C, E5b, B1I B2I
RINEX raw data logs are compatible with PPP services so you can now get centimeter-precise results in any place on Earth. Process RINEX files in an online service and get position with absolute accuracy.
Built-in 3.5G modem
Reach RS2 features a power-efficient 3.5G HSPA modem with 2G fallback and global coverage. Now corrections can be accessed or broadcasted over NTRIP independently, without relying on an Internet connection on your phone.
22 hours on 1 charge
Up to 22 hours of autonomous work when logging data and up to 16 hours as a 3G rover, even in cold weather—no more need to carry spare batteries with you. Reach RS2 can charge from a USB wall charger or a power bank over USB-C.
Drone Surveying with ReachView 3
The most user-friendly software for data collection that is available both for Android and iOS. Supports thousands of coordinate systems and is translated into multiple languages. With ReachView 3, you can collect and stake out points and control all the features of Reach receivers, such as setting up a base station, logging RINEX data, and configuring NMEA output.
Save points, and export data to CSV. Record each position as a point with centimeter precise coordinates. Export projects and open them in GIS or CAD software like AutoCAD, ArcGIS, QGIS, and others. Coordinate systems based on WGS84, NAD83, GDA2020, and others
Find point’s position on the ground. Stakeout is used to find exact physical locations of points. They can be collected in ReachView or imported from other CAD or GIS software.
Logging in RINEX:
record raw data, position, and base correction logs. Record raw data, position and base correction logs. Point collection and recording of RAW data are independent processes and can be used simultaneously. ReachView has a simple and intuitive interface for logging configuration and control.
We provide our version of RTKLib for PPK. It’s free and can be downloaded from our docs.
- 16GB storage
- 160+ days of logging at 1 Hz
PPP for OPUS – RINEX raw data logs are compatible with PPP services so you can now get centimeter-precise results in any place on Earth. Process RINEX files in an online service and get position with absolute accuracy.
NTRIP or another Reach as a base station
Reach RS2 needs a base station as a source of corrections. That’s a requirement for centimeter accuracy in RTK and PPK. Base might be either another Reach RS2 receiver or an NTRIP service. VRS is also supported. Reach RS2 works seamlessly with other Reach receivers over any link.

Engineered to be tough – Reach RS2 is designed to work even in the most challenging environments.
IP67 RS2 is waterproof up to 1 m depth. All connectors are completely sealed and protected from water and dust with silicone plugs.
-20ºС…+65ºС We extensively tested Reach RS2 in conditions that simulate coldest winters and hottest summers.
Polycarbonate body Polycarbonate, an extremely durable material that is used in bulletproof glass, makes Reach RS2 impact-resistant.
Covered with elastomer This is a rubber-like material that forms a shock absorber around the whole device. In a sophisticated manufacturing process, elastomer is permanently bonded to the polycarboante base so that if your bipod falls over, Reach RS2 will bump off, no marks left.
Rugged 5/8″ mount
A precision CNC machined threaded mount is inserted during the molding process and becomes one with the plastic. The metal mount works as a heatsink, transferring heat away from the electronic components and ensuring stable operation in a hot climate.
Comes with LoRa antenna, USB cable, and carry case with a strap
