Harxon Introduces 4-in-1 X-Survey Antenna for RTK Applications

Normal RTK integration is based on the installation of separate antennas, which easily leads to reduced efficiency because of electromagnetic interference (EM). The conventional antenna installation also results in unstable machine performance due to the problems of system compatibility between different antennas. Harxon has overcome these difficulties by developing a solution that provides both stable performance and high integration with its integrated X-Survey antenna. This is a unique 4-in-1 OEM antenna for both navigation and communication in surveying applications. The high-gain and wide beam-width GNSS antenna features multi-point feeding technology, ensuring a high phase centre stability and positioning accuracy. Moreover,... (read more)

Satlab Introduces SLC RTK Handheld with Tablet or Phone as Display

Sweden-based survey and GIS equipment maker Satlab Geosolutions has launched its multi-purpose SLC RTK handheld solution. The SLC brings professional high-precision positioning in a new design concept with Bluetooth connectivity for Android, Windows and iOS BLE smart devices. The SLC handheld sends via Bluetooth, cm level NMEA position data to the user’s tablet or phone. Alternatively, it can be used as a fixed sensor for any compatible NMEA driven positioning application. The design includes a mounting plate to attach the user’s tablet device so it acts as the SLC’s display, or connectivity is available via a USB/RS232 port. With built-in... (read more)

RTK Positioning Accuracy Maintained during Outages for up to 20 Minutes

During Intergeo, NovAtel introduced its RTK ASSIST service, a subscription-based service that provides users with satellite-delivered correction data to seamlessly continue centimetre-level accuracy during Real Time Kinematic (RTK) correction outages caused by communication disruptions. Users are able to maintain RTK-level performance for up to 20 minutes, reducing any associated downtime and optimising solution productivity. RTK is a method of achieving cm-level accuracy with GNSS. However, if the RTK correction data link to the receiver is interrupted, performance degrades quickly. RTK ASSIST subscribers are able to maintain the accuracy of their positioning solution during these interruptions, avoiding any down-time.  RTK ASSIST... (read more)

OEMV Precision Receiver Firmware

NovAtel has launched its version 3.800 firmware for its OEMV family of GNSS precision receivers. This firmware upgrade provides optimisations to NovAtel's AdVance RTK for GPS-only and GPS+GLONASS RTK positioning performance. Research and algorithm adjustments have been made to AdVance RTK, increasing solution availability and accelerating ambiguity resolution in real world conditions while maintaining high accuracy. Additional routines have been added to minimise the effects of increasing solar activity for consistent and reliable RTK positioning in long baseline RTK positioning in active ionosphere conditions. Comprehensive support for RTCM Master Auxiliary Concept (MAC) messages has also been added for optimal positioning... (read more)
