Breaking New Ground in GNSS RTK

Altus Positioning Systems
Altus Positioning Systems provides high-precision GNSS surveying equipment through its international sales network. Based in Torrance, California, USA, Altus is a part of the Septentrio group of companies and has primary responsibility for positioning systems in the surveying and GIS business sectors. Altus was founded in April 2007 with a primary goal of bringing choice, quality and value to a marketplace which in many ways had consolidated in a few very large suppliers. Torrance, Altus’ original home, was a logical location for the company due to its long history of involvement with satellite positioning technology: Magnavox, an early GPS pioneer,... (read more)

Septentrio Launches New GNSS RTK Technology for Surveyors

Septentrio has introduced its next-generation high-precision Altus APS3G RTK receiver, which – according to the Belgian company – brings technology only previously available in scientific receivers into the field for professional surveyors. The new multi-constellation APS3G addresses major concerns about compatibility with new satellite constellations, as well as interference and jamming, Neil Vancans, vice president of Septentrio Americas, said. Built on Septentrio’s AsteRx4 engine, the APS3G tracks all-in-view GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, IRNSS, SBAS, Galileo and QZSS, including E6/L6, and all other signals known to be available in the medium term. Jammer resistance The APS3G incorporates Septentrio’s AIM technology with three... (read more)

Real-time RTK-quality Velocity Accurary Without Base-station

Customers of OxTS, the British inertial navigation and GPS/GNSS manufacturer, can now benefit from velocity measurements approaching 1cm/s accuracy and a slip angle accuracy of 0.1° RMS at high speed – without the need for a base-station. This achievement is thanks to the new gxInteger algorithm and the way OxTS products utilise both GNSS and inertial measurements. This development means customers that want real-time RTK-quality velocity and orientation measurements, but don’t require 2cm position accuracy, no longer need to spend time and money setting up a base-station and have more freedom in selecting test sites. Automotive customers benefit most directly... (read more)
