Advanced Navigation releases next generation satellite compass
Advanced Navigation has released the second generation of their highly successful satellite compass. GNSS Compass is a plug-and-play solution that provides accurate position, heading, and time in a self-contained unit. The new system provides significantly higher heading performance, combined with a reduction in price to under USD 2K, opening up the advanced technology to cost-sensitive applications previously dependent on magnetic heading.
The new system significantly improves the availability and accuracy of heading under difficult conditions, such as under bridges, when there is limited visibility of the sky and in the presence of RF interference. This is achieved through a new multi-frequency GNSS receiver, cutting-edge antenna design, and algorithm improvements.
The updated GNSS Compass supports L1/L2 RTK positioning and heading using all satellite constellations including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou.
Two interface variants are available to cater to all applications. The serial variant supports plug-and-play operation with existing NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 applications. The Power over Ethernet variant allows simplified power and network cabling for all new applications.
