GPSAT Systems provides specialised support for NovAtel’s Application Programming Interface (API) option, which hosts customer applications on NovAtel receivers.
Using a standard C/C++ development environment and the API library, software tailored for a company’s application can be developed to run on the GPS receiver platform, eliminating system hardware and reducing development costs and time to market.
The API library includes such features as a virtual interface to the receiver, the ability to interface with external devices and support for multiple tasks and priority levels.
GPSat Systems has now developed and is currently field testing a customer RTAttitude, a firmware application designed to operate on a NovAtel receiver with API functionality enabled.
RTAttitude runs on a NovAtel receiver and processes input messages from a second NovAtel receiver to produce attitude information.
There are several system setup options that are available within the RTAttitude firmware application.
