Emlid’s Reach RS3 is a RTK GPS GNSS Receiver with tilt compensation. As a result it provides survey grade precision even in hard-to-reach spots.
Accurate results even with large tilt angles
The IMU-based tilt compensation in Reach RS3 enables you to make measurements with up to 60 degrees of tilt while still staying within 20 mm of accuracy.
Reach RS3 continuously measures and corrects tilt in real-time to keep you on target.
Survey and stakeout faster
No need to check the bubble
Effortless and robust
We calibrate each unit individually at the factory, so you can get your Reach RS3 up and running right out of the box.
Immune to magnetic disturbances
Unaffected by magnetic fields, the RS3 provides robust tilt compensation even when working close to metal structures.
Tilt initialization takes about 20 meters of walking or 10-20 seconds of tilting. Usually ready on the way from the car.
Rapid and Reliable GNSS receiver
Gets a fix in 5 seconds
Reach RS3 gets a centimeter-accurate solution in about 5 seconds. It maintains robust performance even when the sky view is partially obstructed, or the receiver itself is tilted.

Base and Rover
Work in RTK with VRS or a single baseline CORS network. You
can also connect another GNSS receiver as an NTRIP base using Emlid NTRIP Caster.
Any receiver with RTCM3 support
LoRa 868/915 MHz
Base and Rover
Perfect for areas with no internet coverage for NTRIP. LoRa is used when connecting Emlid receivers over the radio.
Compatibility All Emlid receivers
with built-in radio
UHF 450 MHz
An option to mix and match RTK receivers within your fleet. You can configure your Reach RS3 to receive corrections from an existing base*.
You can also use a high-power external radio on your Reach base and connect with the UHF radio receiver in Reach RS3.

RS3 is waterproof up to a one meter depth. Silicone plugs completely seal and protect all connectors from water and dust.
The Reach RS3 Li-Ion battery handles high and low temperatures well and over 2000 cycles of charging and discharging while maintaining its original capacity.
While others are hot-swapping batteries, your Reach just keeps working.
-20 to +65 ºС
We extensively tested Reach RS3 in conditions that simulate the coldest winters and hottest summers.
The body of the Reach RS3 is made of polycarbonate and coated with elastomer. The combination of these materials makes your Reach RS3 drop resistant and ready for the harshest conditions.
