This collaboration ensures smooth and easy integration of high-accuracy GPS/GNSS positioning and professional-level autopilots into control systems where safety and reliability matter
Septentrio announced a collaboration with MicroPilot, a world leader in professional UAV autopilots. Septentrio receivers, including the small-form-factor mosaic modules, as well as the OEM board AsteRx-m3 will support seamless integration of positioning and orientation into MicroPilot’s autopilot ecosystem.
In addition to developing autopilots, MicroPilot provides supporting software and services that enable customers to use development time more efficiently, reducing time-to-market. “Working closely with Septentrio gives MicroPilot the ability to better leverage resilient and robust GNSS technologies strengthening our offering to the professional UAV market for safe and reliable flight control,” commented Howard Loewen, President of MicroPilot.
Self-interference or self-jamming is a common occurrence in UAVs, where devices such as cameras, servos or antennas, which emit electromagnetic radiation, are located close to the GPS receiver. Incorporating GNSS technology, which is resilient to jamming and spoofing, in combination with reliable professional-level autopilots is key to safe and secure flight navigation.
