GPS/GLONASS RTK Receiver

The SXBlue III GNSS is a palm-sized GNSS RTK receiver that uses both GPS and GLONASS for real-time, centimetre accuracy. Via Bluetooth, it brings centimetre accuracy to any Bluetooth-compliant smartphone, handheld, tablet or notebook computer. The SXBlue III GNSS uses new, patented technology that allows it to generate corrections for both GPS and GLONASS satellite data even if the user’s reference station (or RTK Network) only supports GPS. This features opens up productivity benefits of GLONASS to all high-precision users around the world, and not just ones who have access to GLONASS-enabled reference stations. For example, a 20 year-old GPS-only... (read more)

AdVance RTK Precise Positioning

NovAtel Inc. (Canada) has launched its new Real Time Kinematic (RTK) precise positioning solution – AdVance RTK. NovAtel’s GNSS OEMV-2 and OEMV-3 receivers will now be available with the new AdVance RTK as part of the Version 3.100 firmware release. AdVance RTK delivers significant performance enhancements, including more reliable ambiguity solutions and faster narrow lane convergence on short, medium and long baselines. Time to ambiguity resolution on baselines up to 20 kilometres is virtually instantaneous. As a result, AdVance RTK enables users to work more reliably and efficiently in a wider range of conditions.

PPP-RTK & Open Standards Symposium

Participants of the PPP-RTK & Open Standards Symposium. Unlike conventional differential GNSS methods, Precise Point Positioning (PPP) does not (directly) utilise nearby reference receiver measurements. When performed on GNSS-equipped mobile phones and CarNav systems, PPP uses carrier phase measurements instead of pseudoranges and very accurate satellite orbit and clock data in place of the information in the broadcast navigation message. While PPP has many advantages, one of its critical shortcomings is the lengthy period for carrier phase ambiguity resolution. However, its supporters claim that it will very soon be possible to have reliable sub-decimetre accuracy, real-time positioning, anywhere in the... (read more)
