NovAtel Inc. has launched its new Real Time Kinematic (RTK) precise positioning solution – AdVance RTK, providing significant technology advancement to the company’s OEMV family of receivers through superior algorithms that enhance precision and performance. NovAtel’s GNSS OEMV-2 and OEMV-3 receivers will now be available with the new AdVance RTK as part of the Version 3.100 firmware release.
AdVance RTK is another step forward in NovAtel’s commitment to enhance its technology in order to deliver best of class, highly integrated, precise positioning solutions for customers. RTK positioning is a significant portion of the business and AdVance RTK will be critical to vertical markets such as surveying, mapping, precision agriculture, and unmanned systems, where positioning reliability is essential.
AdVance RTK delivers significant performance enhancements, including more reliable ambiguity solutions and faster narrow lane convergence on short, medium and long baselines. Time to ambiguity resolution on baselines up to 20 kilometers is virtually instantaneous. As a result, AdVance RTK enables users to work more reliably and efficiently in a wider range of conditions.
With faster convergence and availability of high precision solutions across all baselines, AdVance RTK delivers significant improvements in performance for many applications, including challenging environments, such as construction sites where continuous tracking of satellites is frequently interrupted. AdVance RTK will be the foundation for NovAtel’s future multi-constellation, multi-frequency Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology developments.
