LORAD++ CORE, an alternative PNT source to combat GNSS denial: 60 x 30 x 8 millimeters

A new series of integrated eLoran/Chayka/GNSS receivers emphasize low-power requirements and small size for alternative positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) to reduce risks of GNSS denial. Loradd++, from Netherlands-based firm Reelektronika, consists of a receiver board of 60 x 30 x 8 millimeters, consuming less than 500 milliwatts (3.3 volts) in continuous operation. The Loradd++ can be used with either... 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
