New GNSS Receiver Module Opens Door for Ultra-precise Positioning for High-volume Applications

Septentrio has announced that it is starting high-volume production of mosaic TM-X5, the next-generation multi-constellation and multi-band receiver module. Featuring the latest GNSS technology, mosaic TM-X5 brings centimetre-level positioning to technologies such as robotics, automation, smart wearables and telematics, among others. Its small form factor and low-power design makes high-performance positioning accessible to volume applications. “For smooth, uninterrupted operation in the field, mosaic TM-X5 is the logical choice for an industrial-grade GNSS positioning module,” said Francois Freulon, head of product management at Septentrio. “In an industrial setting, the cost of equipment downtime can quickly get out of hand. We designed mosaic TM to be robust in difficult environments, ensuring continuous operation as well as quick set-up times for our customers.” Compatible with all GNSS constellations Septentrio’s mosaic TM-X5 was conceived to be one of the first GNSS receiver modules...

China-based Entry among ESA Competition Winners

A team in The University of Nottingham Ningbo China’s (UNNC) Department of Civil Engineering is the only China-based entry among the winners of a competition run by the European Space Agency (ESA). The competition involved accurately tracking and positioning using Europe’s current satellites and was successfully entered by teams across the world. The Department of Civil Engineering has a suite of multi global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers that continually track at least 30 GNSS satellites currently in orbit, including those opertaing on the Chinese BeiDou system. These receivers are used by academics, in collaboration with international companies and other organisations, to... (read more)

New Solution for Directly Georeferenced Mapping from UAVs

Applanix, a leading company in products and solutions for mobile mapping and positioning, has introduced a new solution that enables major improvements in unmanned airborne mapping: the Applanix APX-15 UAV GNSS inertial system. The APX-15 UAV is designed to maximise the efficiency of mapping from small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) by reducing - or even eliminating - ground control points (GCPs). Sidelap is also significantly reduced, increasing the area flown per mission. According to the company, the Applanix APX-15 UAV provides unparalleled performance in an extremely small package and, with the included POSPac UAV post-mission software, produces a highly accurate...
