NovAtel has introduced several new precision positioning solutions for space-constrained applications. With enhanced positioning accuracy in a compact form, the PwrPak7D, PwrPak7DE1, and OEM7600 are ideal for automotive, airborne and other smaller unmanned systems. The PwrPak7D and PwrPak7D-E1 dual antenna, multi-frequency enclosures, OEM7600 receiver board, plus NovAtel’s new Waypoint Inertial Explorer Express post-processing software, will be featured at Xponential 2018.
“We are very excited to be introducing our new OEM7-based and Inertial Explorer® solutions at Xponential 2018. These systems provide robust positioning and accuracy in a compact footprint for UAVs and smaller autonomous projects,” said Neil Gerein, Director of Product Management at NovAtel. “An advanced range of software options, including NovAtel’s tightly coupled GNSS+Inertial SPAN technology and Interference Toolkit, provide assured positioning anywhere.“
Dual antenna, multi-frequency enclosures
NovAtel’s new PwrPak7D and PwrPak7D-E1 enclosures provide space efficiency without sacrificing position accuracy and heading stability, even in stationary, slow-moving or hovering dynamics. The PwrPak7D-E1 enclosure integrates an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with NovAtel’s OEM7720 dual antenna receiver board to deliver Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Inertial Navigation System (INS) capabilities. When combined with NovAtel’s SPAN technology, positioning and attitude performance is optimized during extended GNSS outages.
Both the PwrPak7D and PwrPak7D-E1 include NovAtel’s Interference Toolkit with advanced interference detection and mitigation features applicable to all stages of integration. A web user interface, accessible through Ethernet or Wi-Fi, allows for quick and easy system configuration and control.
OEM7600 receiver board for smaller autonomous systems
The OEM7600 receiver board features NovAtel’s high-performance positioning solutions in an extremely small form factor, wrapped with protective shielding to isolate emissions from surrounding electronics in confined spaces. This new receiver integrates easily with NovAtel’s SPAN technology to optimize performance during extended GNSS outages.
The new OEM7600 will be commercially available this summer.
