Topcon's Millimeter GPS system is a 3D machine control system that combines GNSS and a laser to achieve positioning with a vertical accuracy that is higher than what can be achieved with GNSS alone.

The system is comprised of a GPS+ system with the addition of a combined GNSS antenna and laser receiver. Topcon is the only manufacturer to offer a 3D machine control system with a fanned laser, enabling high-accuracy operation within a 10m vertical range.

Through acquisitions, Topcon's 3D machine control products incorporate technology from companies such as AGTEK and Javad Positioning Systems.

Topcon's GNSS technology is developed primarily in Russia, its optical products in Japan and its 3D machine control software in Australia.

Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. is headquartered in Livermore, California and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Topcon Corporation, Tokyo. Topcon Corporation is a public company traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange under the company code 7732. Toshiba Corporation is its primary shareholder with approximately 35% of the shares.
