Hemisphere GNSS, Carlson Software Receivers
Featured in the August 2017 GPS Equipment Product Focus
Hemisphere GNSS and Carlson Software have, together, produced the Hemisphere S321 and Carlson BRx6 compact, state-of-the-art GNSS receivers.
The two companies previously worked together on the design and production of Carlson's BRx5 GNSS receiver (Hemisphere S320), developed using Carlson's software and interface expertise with Hemisphere's design and manufacturing experience and RTK correction technology leadership.
The new S321 and BRx6 receivers are optimized for land surveying, construction fieldwork and marine operations. Design and production focused on creating a lightweight and compact receiver with an intuitive interface and state-of-the-art access to multiple satellite constellations — including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo. The receivers also incorporate RTK and L-band corrections, including optimization for Hemisphere’s subscription-based Atlas GNSS Global Correction Service.
The new receiver is based on Athena, Hemisphere’s RTK engine, and is designed from the ground up to efficiently process multiple constellations and Atlas correction signals, resulting in both high-accuracy and robust performance.
Several features of the new receiver, including the new SureFix technology, were specifically designed to make surveyors more productive in the field or on construction sites.
