Carlson Desktop Solutions becomes first Altus Distributor in the United States.





Austin, TX ‐ July 1, 2008 – for
immediate release

Carlson Desktop Solutions becomes first Altus Distributor in the United States.

Carlson Desktop Solutions announces today their position as the first U.S. based reseller of the
APS-3 GPS receivers from Altus Positioning Systems. Altus Positioning, a
California based company founded by industry veteran Neil Vancans
enters the market with a new dual frequency GPS receiver that includes
internal radio AND internal GSM modem standard. The compact APS-3
utilizes GPS and GLONASS satellites and needs only a Bluetooth
connection to a Carlson SurvCE data collector to become a fully
functioning rover or base. CDS is expanding its coverage of the United
States and will distribute the product to a number of strategic areas.

“After heavy testing and direct contact with the development team from Altus
we feel the product is solid and ready for the market. This is a great
option for anyone currently using Carlson SurvCE. A GPS network rover or
traditional base-rover pair is now a much more affordable step,
especially for current SurvCE users.” says Paul Carlson, President of
Carlson Desktop Solutions.

“ The team at CDS is well acquainted with the creation of efficient survey solutions because of their vision
of the survey process from data collection to the delivery of 2 and 3d
Data products. They are an obvious choice for Altus as a partner. As one
of the US’s largest distributors of Survey Software products Carlson
Desktop is an ideal partner to launch the APS-3.” , says Neil Vancans,
President of Altus Positioning.
