GeoMax has updated the firmware on its Zenith35 Pro GNSS receiver, which was introduced in November 2016. The update is for NovAtel’s OEM7 Measurement Engine built into the receivers. Update OM7MR0102SN0005 addresses a real-time kinematic (RTK)-network connection issue preventing reception of corrections when connecting to selected NTRIP networks in some countries. Note that the receiver’s onboard firmware version remains unchanged at... read more

Navilock’s new GNSS receivers use u-blox untethered dead reckoning

February 8, 2017By
Navilock-ublox-W

The untethered 3D dead-reckoning GNSS module NEO-M8U by u-blox is at the core of Navilock’s new GNSS receiver series for service vehicles. The new portfolio will enable retrofitting of dead-reckoning and untethered dead-reckoning (UDR) technology in any vehicle. Combining multi-GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo) with an onboard 3D gyro/accelerometer, the untethered dead-reckoning technology improves position accuracy even where GNSS signals are weak or... read more

Interference mitigated with CRP and dual-polarized antennas: Free webinar

January 30, 2017By
February cover story.

Two new topic areas and presentations have been added to this Thursday’s free webinar on Signal Interference: Detection and Mitigation. The speakers will explore anti-jamming protection with controlled radiation pattern antennas (CRPAs) and with dual-polarized antennas. The latter topic is also the cover story for the February issue, which demonstrated a significant improvement in positioning accuracy and robustness against interference... read more

U-blox launches multi-GNSS module for wearables, UAVs

January 24, 2017By
The u-blox ZOE-M8Q is designed for wearables, UAVs and asset trackers.

U-blox has launched a new positioning module, the ZOE-M8G. The ZOE-M8G is an ultra-compact GNSS receiver module designed for markets where small size, minimal weight and high location precision are essential. ZOE-M8G offers exceptionally high location accuracy by concurrently connecting to GPS, Galileo and either GLONASS or BeiDou. It also provides -167 dBm navigation sensitivity, important for wearable devices, unmanned aerial... read more

Professional GNSS users now expect lightweight, easy-to-use receivers optimized for their particular workflows. Meanwhile, a streamlined manufacturing process means design and production of sophisticated instruments now takes months rather than years, and relies on global teams of networked specialists. Carlson Software approached Hemisphere GNSS in early 2015 with the goal of bringing a new GNSS receiver to market, one optimized... read more

At a Dec. 15 ceremony in Brussels titled “Galileo Goes Live,” two high officials of the European Commission issued the Galileo Initial Services Declaration. The Declaration of Initial Services means that the Galileo satellites and ground infrastructure are now operationally ready. These signals will be highly accurate but not available all the time, since the constellation is not yet complete... read more

Septentrio provides low-power embedded GNSS for Xeos autonomous reference receiver
