Voyis releases the discovery vision system

Voyis launches its new product line, Discovery Vision Systems, to address the trade-off that is currently made between Piloting Cameras and 3D Inspection Cameras. Piloting cameras prioritize low latency video at the expense of the image data required for 3D model generation. Conversely, 3D cameras prioritize image data at the expense of piloting effectiveness, limited by a higher latency and smaller field of view. The Discovery is a vision platform without compromise, delivering 4K piloting video together with 3D data. Voyis offers two versions of the Discovery: The Discovery Camera and the Discovery Stereo.

Safran partnership with Xona Space System

Orolia, a Safran Electronics & Defense company, has announced a partnership with Xona Space Systems to develop support for Xona’s Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) constellation and navigation signals in its Skydel™-powered simulation and testing products. Xona is developing PULSAR – a high-performance positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) service enabled by a commercial constellation of dedicated LEO satellites.

Xona’s PULSAR service will advance capabilities in global PNT security, resilience, and accuracy by augmenting existing GNSS while also operating as an independent PNT constellation.

Veripos launches Apex PRO Correction Services

Veripos has announced the launch of Apex PRO Correction Services with breakthrough RTK From the Sky technology. Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning division’s RTK From the Sky enables global, centimetre-level precise point positioning (PPP) accuracy in as fast as 3 minutes — without compromising on high reliability. Now, this technology comes to the offshore marine market through Apex PRO corrections to support safer operations and increased efficiency, resulting in higher productivity and minimised downtime.

Leica Geosystems and Xwatch Safety Solutions

Leica Geosystems and Xwatch Safety Solutions have announced a significant milestone in their partnership, enhancing construction site safety and infrastructure protection.

With a tightly coupled dual-GNSS positioning system and inertial sensor, it provides reliable 3D positioning and heading to control the motor grader blade with the highest accuracy. It is designed to withstand the harsh environment of construction sites and supports multiple applications, including real-time kinematic networked transport of RTCM via internet protocol and ultra-high frequency base stations.

SYNTACS Navigation System for Indonesian MCM vessels

The first of the two new vessels, which are among the most modern ships of their kind, is currently successfully completing its sea trials.

The integrated solution is equipped with Synapsis NX navigation and bridge systems, an integrated SYNTACS command and control system, as well as a state-of-the-art mine-hunting sonar. This enables leading-edge MCM operations that are highly precise, safe and efficient from mission initiation to mission success. Efficient mine countermeasures are of crucial importance for safe maritime traffic and the protection of maritime infrastructure. A newly developed software module for SYNTACS provides the capabilities required to plan, execute, coordinate and monitor MCM missions.

Septentrio launches Agnostic Corrections Partner Program

Septentrio has started the Agnostic Corrections Partner Program. This program facilitates the use of Septentrio receivers with various high-accuracy services, which offer varying levels of accuracy, coverage and delivery methods. This also allows integrators and users to select the service which is most suitable for their specific application and business model.

GPSdome 2 – Anti-Jamming Device

The GPSdome 2 is tailored to defend small- to medium-sized tactical UAVs as well as manned and unmanned ground vehicles. With a small form factor (500 g, 87 mm x 91 mm x 61.55 mm) and minimal power consumption, it is suitable for loitering munitions as well as UAVs. Fully retrofit and completely standalone, the system is compatible with almost any off-theshelf GNSS receiver as well as standard active GNSS antennas, meaning that it can be integrated into existing GPS systems or into new product lines, manned or unmanned.

Topcon expands MC-X platform

Topcon Positioning Systems has announced the availability of a new GNSS option for its MC-Mobile compact machine control solution. Rounding out the company’s compact solutions portfolio, this GNSS option allows contractors to easily integrate their compact machines into fleets already powered by GNSS technology. This expansion gives owners of skid steers, compact track loaders (CTL) and mini excavators the broadest offering of machine control options to date.

ComNav modules now compatible with Galileo HAS

ComNav Technology’s K8 series GNSS modules can use the Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS) precisepoint positioning (PPP). The PVT algorithm upgrade to the K8 series module supports Galileo HAS with an accuracy of 20 cm horizontally and 40 cm vertically. Galileo HAS provides free access to information necessary to estimate accurate positioning using a PPP algorithm in real-time through the Galileo signal E6-B and an internet connection. It was declared on January 24, enabling users within the service area to achieve improved positioning performance.

All-In-One System for On-Machine Excavator Guidance by Trimble

Trimble has introduced the Trimble® Siteworks Machine Guidance Module, extending the capabilities of Trimble Siteworks Software from surveying and layout to support on-machine excavator guidance and operator assistance. With the addition of the new software module, contractors can use the same rugged Site Positioning Systems hardware and software to perform a variety of tasks on the job site, including surveying, machine guidance, in-field design and reporting.

CompassCom releases CompassLDE Connectors

CompassCom Software has announced availability of CompassLDE Connectors for the Cityworks work order management solution that feed real-time automated vehicle location (AVL) details for viewing on the Cityworks Office and Respond maps.
