New Pole Staking App Used with Archer 2 to Boost Efficiency Print E-mail
Written by Juniper Systems and Futura Systems   
Thursday, 26 June 2014

Juniper Systems and Futura Systems have recently partnered to provide enterprise utility GIS solutions for electric and utilities industries. 

Logan, UT — Juniper Systems and Futura Systems have recently partnered to provide enterprise utility GIS solutions for electric and utilities industries. This August, Futura Systems will be launching a new pole staking application called GPSStaker at their user conference.

Staking, or line design, is performed when new locations need to be added to an existing electric line. It involves mapping a new utility pole run, ensuring that the distance between each pole is up-to-code and geo-located, and then recording the GPS coordinates of where each pole should be placed. GPSStaker was optimized for Juniper Systems’ Archer 2™ rugged handheld, and works with Esri® ArcMap. Using GPSStaker, stakers—or field engineers—can GPS-stake a job on the Archer 2 using ArcPad10. The data is then automatically synced back into a main database.

“The people in the field want lighter hardware and more efficient staking processes,” said Doug Malinowski, CIO of Futura Systems. “With Futura GPSStaker and the Archer 2, we’ve designed a promising solution that combines the accuracy they need with the design quality they want.”
