TOPCON surveying instruments have been designated by the government for Chinese scientific expedition to Antarctica.
Update December 11, 2007
As part of a project of world scientific expedition to Antarctica, Chinese scientists left Shanghai on November 12, for the country’s 24th scientific expedition to Antarctica for half a year. China is officially in charge of this project’s polar altitude observations and Total Station GTS-330 series and GPS Receiver HiPer Plus produced by TOPCON have been selected to be used for its survey work. The reason for this adoption is because of its high endurance capacity that makes it possible to be operated in polar region and the past sales performance.
Yokokura, president of TOPCON, attended to the press conference of this project held in Shanghai and said,”We are hoping to contribute to this project that may lead to a future of humanity. This is my honor that TOPCON products achieve social responsibilities, which is our corporate policy and honor to contribute widely to the society.”
We are hoping for the success of this project as a member of the sponsor.
