Emlid has released a compact and lightweight multi-band RTK module Reach M2 for real-time navigation and PPK mapping.
Reach M2 tracks GPS/QZSS (L1, L2), GLONASS (L1, L2), BeiDou (B1, B2) and Galileo (E1, E5) and gets a fixed solution almost instantly. Reach M2 allows working over longer baselines (compared to a single-frequency Reach M+) up to 60 km in RTK and up to 100 km in PPK mode.
Designed for UAV Applications
Due to its compact design, Reach M2 can be easily integrated into a UAV platform. Reach M2 connects to a camera via a hot shoe and records the location of each photo.
Ultimately, it helps producing more detailed and consistent data set for the further georeferencing at various professional mapping software.
Helical GNSS Antenna
Modern helical antenna complements Reach M2 and operates across the same satellite constellations, so you won’t miss a satellite.
Helical antenna eliminates the need in a large ground plane, yet allows the achievement of high-positioning accuracy.
Configuration and Logs Management with ReachView
Reach M2 can be configured via the ReachView app, available both for Android and iOS. The app allows to set up RTK settings, collect raw data in RINEX format, and control all the features of the device.
Use Reach RS2 as a base station
Reach M2 works seamlessly with other Reach receivers over any link. It is also compatible with any other receivers that support RTCM3 and NTRIP.
